This area is our signature...We offer any level of treatment needed to help clients achieve abstinence and sobriety. We support the 12-step approach, but at the same time understand underlying issues may also influence a relapse. Therefore we use the power of the group, outside speakers, education, relapse prevention training, and bringing the family or significant other into treatment. Our groups are powerful--we use the best and most effective protocols available-art, music, expressive, aroma, nutrition groups. Quite often a person will come into treatment unwillingly and say after the first group night they felt comfortable because the staff treated them with care and respect.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 877-606-6161.

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.

I work differently with Addictions than standard ten step models. Influenced by Dr. Lance Dodes, who wrote " The Heart of Addiction," I believe that all addicts suffer from THREE FEELINGS: They feel ANGRY, TRAPPED and HELPLESS. In my work, I help them feel more empowered to change the the things they need to change which makes them feel less helpless and when less helpless, less angry. I apply this to Sexual addiction, Alcohol Addiction, Drug addiction, Gambling Addiction, Overspending Addiction and even Sleeping Addiction, or Addiction to not going to sleep. This method is a huge contribution to our field and works beautifully.
