Addiction is a mental health condition and I treat addiction by a multi-pronged process predominately from a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) model. I help my clients understand the reasons they use a substance or engage in an addictive behavior, teach them skills regulate their emotions and tolerance distress that might otherwise lead them to engage in their addiction, and address any underlying issues that contribute to their addiction. I also help clients with with concerns about their substance use or compulsive behavior to avoid developing addictions.

Addiction is a self-destructive path that destroys your relationships and life-style. Work with me to take a look at what you really want in life!

Confronting yourself and having the courage to step up and take responsibility will be challenging. I provide a non-judgemental and supportive presence as you work through your problem. If you're ready to move forward and leave behind your maladaptive coping mechanism, you're ready to have a better life.

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.

Have you ever gone to take a drink and known deep inside you that you don't want it, you're just doing it because it's what you do. There is some sense of compulsion to fill a hole or a need within you to be satisfied. Addiction is about more than alcohol, drugs, sex, food, etc. In a sense, we could "fill in the blank" with anything really that attempts to satisfy the lack of something deeper in our life. Addiction is worth exploring. What are the deeper needs that we are trying to satisfy with any of the things we find ourselves addicted to? Psychotherapy helps uncover those mysteries, to bring us to the core of what we really long for and desire to become.

Sexual addiction is something that destroys the relationships we really want to have. It can feel like an inevitable cycle that we have no control over. My approach to sexual addiction addresses the behavior as well as the meaning behind the sexual addiction from a spiritual perspective that leads to a different way of leaving. Life doesn't have to continue the way that is. If you are ready for change, I'd be honored to help.

Addiction is about more than alcohol, drugs, sex, food, etc. It’s an attempt to satisfy the lack of something deeper in our lives, and to cover over our pain. Addictions not only affect the person addicted, but they wreak havoc on our relationships. I work with addicted individuals as well as their partners or family members to help everyone cope with the addiction in ways that foster healing. I work with drug and alcohol addiction, gambling and sex addiction. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT). My practice provides treatment for the Sex Addict as well as their Partners, and helps couples walk through each stage of the restoration process.

Addiction of any kind has a particular hold on the person experiencing it and the people around them. It can be hard to express and even harder to honestly take a look at. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential place to explore the effects of addiction. I am honest and direct but gentle with clients who are seeking help in this area. My approach is harm-reduction. Most often clients have success with cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive therapy and mindfulness. Tackling the effects of addiction and choosing to work hard to get better is a life-changing positive decision that will allow you to free yourself from unwanted behaviors and let you live the life you want.

Uncomfortable, powerful feelings from negative life experiences can cause some people to turn to the use of addictive subtances (alcohol, opiods, etc...) or behaviors (gambling, sexual choices, etc..) to provide relief from these feelings. When the use of these substances or behaviors increases to the point that it becomes a problem, or even unmanageable and paralyzing, then it needs to be addressed. My approach is to provide practical tools to help manage the addiction, while also unpacking the causes for the need for the substances or behaviors in the first place, and finding hope in the restoration of a life without addiction.

Addiction, whatever it is, is like "emotional Tylenol" - it provides a temporary escape from whatever it is one wants to avoid feeling or facing. Our work together involves coming to know the many parts of you and your story and the feelings and thoughts that may seem unbearable so have you reaching for your emotional "drug of choice." Through this safe and compassionate process where you can feel supported and understood while challenged to open yourself to new experiences of yourself and your self in relationship to others, hope can be born and goals feel reachable. At first it may feel overwhelming, but over time relief can come.

The comedian Russell Brand wrote; “Drugs and alcohol are not my problem — reality is my problem. Drugs and alcohol are my solution.” It really doesn't matter if your addiction is pornography or cocaine or work or your cell phone- we all have solutions that we use to cope and deal with life. The problem is they often rob us of the good and beautiful things in life. I offer a helping hand in escaping addiction and working with the issues that our addictions mask.
