Dr Jemail understands addiction from a developmental and relational perspective. Understanding it’s function is important. In some cases, coordinating care with a medical doctor or 12 Step Support groups is quite useful. Working with addictions is an opportunity for in-depth work as well as the healing of others affected by the addict.

Avoidance of certain issues and feelings can be a major motivator for an addiction. Exploring what may be driving your addiction as a way of coping can help family members to know the best way to support their loved ones . Having years of experience with treating individuals and families address the issues surrounding addiction, I have seen people successfully address this issue and learn how to live meaningful lives as they entered the process of therapy and as they began building on their recovery supports.

Addiction is an insidious disease; substances promise solace. but provide utter wreckage.

Licensed Psychologist

1528 Walnut Street, Suite 1702, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102 | 646-666-3108

I show people who are misusing substances that overcoming an addiction is quite possible. I emphasize work and practice at coping skills. I first help the individual to judge only their self-defeating behavior but never to put themselves down as a person for being addicted. This helps reduce guilt, shame, anxiety and denial. We focus on developing coping skills to handle problems and change behavior. I show the individual how to develop emotional and behavioral control even when life is difficult and stressful. I teach how to increase frustration tolerance. I lay out a specific plan for coping with temptation. I build and maintain motivation for staying with the recovery process.

Substance abuse and substance dependence are similar, but not the same. As your addictions coach, we will work together to determine if you or a loved one is experiencing substance abuse, or suffering from substance dependence, the more serious of the two. Substance abuse can often precede a more dangerous substance dependence problem. But there are other factors to consider, including mental health problems such as depression or anxiety. If addressed immediately, substance abuse may not lead to substance dependence. Contact me today to discuss your concerns. Working together, we may be able to end your substance abuse problem before it gets out of hand.

Most counseling sessions are conducted outdoors while walking on the Pennypack, Neshaminy or Core Creek hike & bike trail. Scientists have long known a workout can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows that exercise can have a deeper and more lasting effect, and thus allows me another avenue in which to provide a unique experience for my clients.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

168 West Ridge Pike, Suite 208, Limerick, Pennsylvania 19468 | 610-308-4523

Letting go of an addiction is hard work – but living with addiction isn't really living, is it? Our cravings and obsessions can run our lives. But how to take charge again? I believe that addiction serves an important purpose. In some way, it allows you to survive and cope with stressors, helps you to calm down, or wake up, or feel better, at least for awhile. We will work to understand the why of your addiction - what deep longing the addictive behavior is trying to fill so desperately, but unsuccessfully. You can learn healthier ways to comfort yourself, ways that bring you closer to people you love, instead of distancing them. You will take back the power to run your own life!!!

We have the solution utilizing a new cutting edge neuroscience-centered brain rebalancing system. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or call 877-606-6161.

Although not an addictions counselor, I help clients who struggle with others in their lives that struggle with an addiction. I often instruct clients on way to identify unhealthy vs. healthy boundaries in relating to their addicted loved one. I teach clients about codependency and specific techniques on handling the "traps" of being close to someone with an addiction. If help clients determine if they have an addiction and give them resources on best treatment options. Family therapy helps client families better relate to one another and deal with addiction in a more healthy way.
