Addiction Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Darien, Connecticut

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.

Addiction Counselor

Joyce Colburn, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

225 Main St., Westport, Connecticut

My approach to clients with addiction issues depends on the nature of the addiction (alcohol and drugs, gambling, internet, smoking, and other compulsive behaviors). Treatment includes addressing the client's denial, employing cognitive behavior therapy, sending clients to AA or NA, and may also involve bringing in members of the client's family to help clients understand the ramifications of their addictions and the necessity to change.

Addiction Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Home visits , Suffolk County, New York

This is an area of treatment where I have seen many miracles. Successfully moving beyond substance dependence and abuse is not a matter of will power and character. Paradoxically, being strong willed and independent can work against recovery; addictions are very 'sticky' and five decades of research and experience confirms that attempting to keep them in check without help does not work. Twelve step programs (AA, NA, CA, etc) are the ‘gold standard’ of recovery, and are tried and true methods of achieving lasting abstinence. I possess a strong 12 Step program background, but know that not everybody can walk into a meeting and feel at home. Come for a consultation and see what is possible.

Addiction Counselor

Gordon Gooding, LCSW, ACSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker / Psychotherapist

147 Main Street, Cold Spring Harbor, New York

Addiction can take many shapes and forms. Addictions to drugs, alcohol, relationships, shopping, gambling, food or sex have become a symptom of a society looking to escape from our pain. Fear of facing these facts can be overwhelming and denying to our addictions will continue to cause pain. Finally facing our addictions is not something that we have to do alone.

Addiction Counselor

Louis Morbillo, LCSW, ACSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

53 E. Main Street, Oyster Bay, New York

Recovery from addiction is the primary focus in my practice. Clients can expect to learn not only the principles of addiction recovery but how they work in real life circumstances. Self help meetings may or may not be suggested. Twelve Step recovery as well as Harm Reduction methodologies may be employed. However restoration of one's life, family and career are the goals pursued in your therapy.

Addiction Counselor

Yudit Maros, LMFT, C.Ht.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Hypnotherapist

100 B Danbury Road, Ridgefield, Connecticut

I view addictions as an extreme way to cope with one's own feelings, by disconnecting from them. I will guide you to safely reconnect with your feelings and trust that just because they hurt, they will still help you to heal. Connection with yourself is where joy is too, not just pain! I will help you to heal any traumas that are often at the bottom of addictions, so you may lose the need for external soothing agents (so to speak), and learn to rely on your Self and other in a healthy way when feeling bad. Addictions teach you bad things, I will teach you how to LOVE yourself, and be free.

Addiction Counselor

John Gerson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

215 Katonah Avenue, Katonah, New York

I began my career in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction, and believe that addictions primarily express difficulties people have in tolerating strong emotions. This is a fundamental issue, and the use of substances often masks it and instead becomes the primary focus of living. I will help you to explore how your "love affair" with your substance of choice brings you anxiety relief in the short term and defeats your interest and ability to grow and develop in the long term. We will also discuss the value of 12 step programs.

Addiction Counselor

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

51 Bedford Road, Katonah, New York

When a person is struggling with addiction, misusing alcohol or substances, they are not well mentally, physically, or spiritually. A person does not have to drink (or use) every day to have a problem. To begin recovery, one must first admit there is a problem, and then be willing to make changes and accept help. People CAN and do recover and improve their lives if recovery is made their number one priority....when it comes to sobriety, "half measures avail (us) nothing" - or at least not enough to fully recover. My addiction treatment approach is Integrative: this means that along w/ individual therapy, we integrate other therapeutic healing modalities and supports for an optimal outcome.

Addiction Counselor

Zalman Nelson, LMSW

Licensed Professional Therapist

Manhasset, New York

Addictions impact so many people in so many forms, including their loved ones, often in Co-Dependent relationships with the addict. But Addictions serve a role and meet a need, and that has to be identified and alternatives found, for treatment to succeed. Many people avoid and hide from pain and suffering in their lives. With support you can face it and get your life, future, and dreams back.

Addiction Counselor

Stacey Chernin, M.A., Psy.D., LMFT, CFT

Licensed Marriage Counselor and Family Therapist

500 Montauk Hwy., West Islip, New York

I provide a thorough therapy approach when it comes to various addictions. Often addictions are an indirect result of other life crises. I make certain that the client and I get to the heart of the addiction through establishing clear-cut short-term and long-term goals and addressing the root of the addiction itself. It is found that once you get to the bottom-line of why a person chose their specific addiction that by focusing on the causes, there can be strength found for working out the issues that may result in a person falling off the wagon- so that an individual will admit the problem, take initial steps for curing the problem, and omit the influences that feed the addiction.

Addiction Counselor

Jaclyn Sullivan, MA, LMFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

21 Greene Ave. Suite #204, Amityville, New York

Anxiety can be a very difficult thing to face. I provide a safe and secure environment for individuals to be able to strengthen their abilities and skills to combat their concerns. I will help to develop and build a plan and goals with you to ensure you feel comfortable. I work on your timeline and go at a pace that you choose. You do not have to face this on your own.

Addiction Counselor

Elana Chasser, LCSW, CSAT, CMAT

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Certified Multiple Addiction Therapist

Merrick Avenue, Merrick, New York

Sexual addiction is painful for both the addict and their partner. It is a process addiction; different from substance addictions like drugs or alcohol. This addiction wreaks havoc in relationships and causes a great deal of fallout (consequences) when it is disclosed to or discovered by the addict's partner. It is painful, even when there was no intention to cause hurt. I specialize in sexual addiction treatment, working with addicts, partners, and couples who want to recover from the effects of this disease. There is great success when people commit themselves to a true and honest recovery.
