I wholeheartedly agree with the work of Dr. Gabor Mate who posits that all addictive tendencies arise in the parts of our brains governing some of our most basic and life-sustaining needs and functions: incentive and motivation, physical and emotional pain relief, the regulation of stress, and the capacity to feel and receive love; these brain circuits develop, or don’t develop, largely under the influence of the nurturing environment in early life, and that therefore addiction represents a failure of these crucial systems to mature in the way nature intended. The human brain continues to develop new circuitry throughout the lifespan and therapy can provide the "corrective" experience.

Whether you are worried that you might have a drug and/or alcohol addiction or cannot leave your computer to play with your children, I can help you gain some insight into way you do what you do and then find ways to slowly decrease your need to engage in the undesired activity. Being free of the addictive drive, however invasive it has been in your life, will leave you not only with more freedom to be who you truly want to be, but it will also increase the depth and truth of your relationships.

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.

I view addiction as the compulsive overuse of a self-prescribed stress management tool. The addiction may be to a person, activity, or substance. But regardless of how addiction manifests itself, the goal is to understand what the client gets out of it, and find healthier, sustainable ways to manage their stress. But regardless, but in addiction counseling is to assess the compulsive behavior, so I can understand where it comes from and what keeps .

Much of the recent research suggests a global, science-based view of addiction. There are many others who are much more adept at helping the client get to recovery. Active recovery is defined as ongoing daily work to understand the addiction, recognize the triggers, maintain the path that is free from addiction. My experience has been with clients who work the 12 steps. My hope is that I can guide the recovering person in their journey.
