I offer counseling for various addictive behaviors. Addictions may include alcohol, drugs, nicotine, pornography, gambling, eating, shopping, hoarding, or relationships (co-dependency. I help clients gain insight into possible causes of their addictive behaviors. Then, a major focus becomes replacing those behaviors with a more positive, healthy lifesyle. I recommend that the client develop a positive support system of people or groups that can enhance their recovery, such as a person abusing alcohol to maintain regular, involved participation in AA. Someone with a porn addiction may first need to put a filter on the computer, and also have a trusted person to be accountable to.

When people think about the word addiction, the most common thought is about drugs or substance. But we can experience addiction to anything, including pornography, computer games, shopping, gambling, even things that normally represent positive things such as exercising or working. People suffering from addiction may have a brain chemistry that is hardwired that way. But sometimes addictions come about as a maladaptive response to a trauma or an event in a person's life. Part of therapy is to help determine the cause of the addiction and then to find the appropriate modality to treat it.

My role, if you are an addict, is to meet you wherever you are in the process and help you take the next step to recovery. I believe psychotherapy can be an excellent addition to the support you may already be receiving from a recovery group such as a 12-step or outpatient intensive therapy group. I use a cognitive behavioral approach to help you change the patterns of thinking that result in your turning to your drug of choice, whether it be alcohol, drugs, sex, relationships, or even shopping. I am also trained in EMDR for Addictions, which has been proven very effective in lessening or completely stopping some cravings. Together we will choose the best treatment plan for your needs.

While most treatment approaches to addiction include 12 step programs, rehabs, and now sober living houses, Grey Matters International, Inc. provides a wildly successful alternative to traditional models of addiction treatment----that keeps the brain in mind. That is, talking to the conscious brain while the primal brain is deciding things even before you are consciously aware? Well, that is the problem to solve in addiction. We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Pastoral Psychotherapist

In 76701 - Nearby to Temple.

I am not an addiction "expert," but see addiction as a response to anxiety and/or depression. I believe that the issue of addiction is, to a large degree, a spiritual issue in that people turn towards addiction when life feels overwhelming or unbearable. I strongly encourage my clients to seek medical assessment when warranted. I also encourage my clients to participate in the various 12 step type groups who have a record of great success in helping people overcome addictive, self-destructive choices.
