While personal psychotherapy can become an important element of addiction recovery, there’s no substitute for 12-step work. That being said, each person must ultimately find their own path and pace which fits for them. Honoring this uniqueness is part of my job of providing the core valuing mirror which facilitates healing. I have many therapeutic “power tools” like DBT and EMDR to support each phase of stabilization, resolution, and integration in the recovery process.

Do you worry about addiction? When you can identify your unmet needs, you begin to take control over addiction. Most people have at least one addiction, and many people have several. Addictions can be any self-soothing behavior that we have a difficult time stopping. Gaming, shopping, social media, food, attention, religion, alcohol, and porn are just some examples of common addictions. Addictions don't necessarily have to be a negative thing, unless they are causing problems in your life or in the lives of others. I can help you identify and understand the role an addiction might be playing in your life, and will work with you to find healthier alternatives.

I have an extensive history of addiction/substance abuse work. In the past I worked as a counselor at a methadone clinic, doing therapy with opiate addicts, & I currently work at Heritage Oaks Hospital, where I do assessments and group therapy with people struggling with addiction among other issues. When it comes to working with addiction I see it as my job not to tell you to stop or pressure you into change, but to help you examine your relationship with addiction and how you would like it to change. In my experience, addiction is most often the result of trauma and/or damaged attachment. When people feel unsupported and unsafe in the world, they tend to turn to unhealthy ways of coping.

Almost everyone has an addiction. It is actually a "defense mechanism" people use to not have to feel emotional pain and disconnection. In working with you on your addiction, we will uncover the root of the emotional pain and I will help you heal that, while also helping you begin to commit to small steps towards controlling the addiction until the day comes when you no longer need your addiction.

Recovering from addictions is a process and is unique to each person. I know that with addiction comes relapse. I use a non-judgemental compassionate approach. The goals of therapy are to achieve abstinence from self harming behaviors, to gain control over overwhelming symptoms, to become aware of your triggers, these triggers may be related to past trauma, to become aware of your feelings and learn how to express your vulnerable feelings,to create appropriate boundaries,to become aware of internalized negative messages toward yourself, to learn how to let go of destructive relationships, to learn how to ask for help, to heal the past and finally to repsect yourself.

Addiction Therapist

Philip Kolba, MA


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.

Often, people develop addictions in their struggle to manage difficult feelings, situations and relationships. Addictions become a way to avoid having to deal with life’s problems, and they offer an escape from the challenge at hand. However, that doesn’t make the problems go away. In fact, addiction usually escalates the original problem and creates a whole host of other difficulties that people either have to face or continue avoiding, which can just perpetuate the whole awful cycle. You don't have to fight this battle alone. Call me today and let's talk about how I can offer a supportive environment as you learn to take the driver's wheel of your 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 or call 877-606-6161.
