In conjunction with couples counseling, I have had extensive experience on porn and sexual addiction recovery for husbands. For drug and alcohol addictions, I am only one part of a team for these clients - they must be participating in an outside group (such as AA, CR, etc.) and be in some type of rehab program, as well as in personal counseling.

Addictions entrap us in life and rob us from our dreams and potential. It takes being in a caring and lovingly but confrontive relationship to face the pain that lies behind one's addiction(s). However, it is not impossible to take the power of the addiction away and become the master of those things that drive your addicition. Your addiction(s) fills some very important need(s) in your life. Once we figure out together what need the addicition(s) is fulfilling, we can learn together healthier and better coping skills for getting those needs met.

To live authentically and fully, we must have access to our feelings. In short, this means that we can identify, articulate, express, and finally take appropriate action on them. Addictions, while there is a vast continuum in type and intensity, block full access to our feelings. It is our feelings and our ability to effectively manage them (without addictions) that enable us to connect deeply with ourselves and others. They are our "internal compass" allowing us to discern various parts of ourselves as well as our choice in relationships. Therapy is the ideal place to process feelings and learn how to manage them without addictive substances and behavior.

I work with client's who are struggling with various forms of online addiction. If you are a parent who is worried about your children and are looking for some help, I have experience working with various tools to both start conversations about how to be online safely and on how to enforce values and rules around the online experience. If you are an individual that is struggling with gaming, porn, or setting boundaries around social media, we work together to find a way to change your behaviors and increase your confidence in yourself and the joy you bring to 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.

In this generation, the growth of individuals with addictions is very significant. Addictions originally were isolated to alcohol and drugs. Today’s addictions are understood to also include, food, sex, money, gambling, video, internet, internet games, internet chatrooms, internet pornography and other types of prolonged, repeated and out of control behaviors and actions.

When we are out of control with addiction, it can be frightening. Addictions can show up in different ways. We can drink too much. Perhaps, we are gambling and deeply in debt. We may eat too much and suffer from poor health. We may be married to someone abusing drugs. Counseling with someone knowledgable about how addiction is different than typical counseling can make all the difference. Working with addiction is different. If you want to be successful, choose a therapist with special training in addiction and a familiarity with the process of recovery. The decision to make a change and seek help can be the most important decision of your life. Call me at 408-249-0014 to begin your process of recovery.

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.
