Addiction is a symptom of underlying pain and trauma. It's the need separate and self medicate from this pain and people often use substances and impulsive behaviors to escape. Then the vicious cycle begins of getting attached to a negative behavior, becoming compulsive , craving it, and losing everything because of it. It's a vicious cycle of trying to fill the emptiness. Grasping at a moment of pleasure only reinforces the attachment which continues the suffering. Allow me help you help you break the cycle . But first you must have a willingness to surrender your old behaviors and be open to new ideas and strategies. I am here if you want the help. I hope to see you soon!

The cycle of addiction is so devastating and frustrating because those around us do not fully understand. Let's work together to look at what need this addiction is serving in your life. Let's look at family patterns that might be reinforcing this behavior. We can develop an action plan that will assist you in abstinence and recovery. We will explore other options like AA and the 12 Steps to see if they make sense in your recovery. We will also use cognitive behavioral methods to understand your triggers and develop a prevention plan. Let's work together to bring you a drug and/or alcohol free life that is both fulfilling and rewarding!

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 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.

Are you becoming concerned about your drinking or other compulsive behaviors (shopping, pornography, gambling...). If you are concerned - you would be wise to address it now. Addiction and compulsions tends to run in families, but the rate is about 25% vs 10 % in the general population, and there is some debate about addiction as a primarily genetic disorder. Some researchers point out that simply witnessing a parent drink in response to stress increases a child’s likelihood of choosing to drink in response to stress. Addictions and compulsions numb feelings- not just the bad feelings but all feelings. Which is the main reason people develop addictions and compulsions. Counseling Helps

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.

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.

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.

You or a family member or loved one are suffering with addiction. When one person suffers, those who care about that person also suffer. It is rare to find treatment that is caring but also sets limits, and that does not assume an individual needs to "hit bottom", which can be dangerous. Instead, the individual needs to be challenged while being loved. This takes many forms, depending on the individual and the situation. With a lifetime of meditation and training in Eastern awareness, as well as years as a psychotherapist, I have helped bring individuals back from the brink of self-destruction. With connection, the dangers of addiction recede. Find connection and come back to a true life.

North Village Avenue, Rockville Centre, New York 11570 | 516-489-2652

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.

Therapist

30 Hazel Terrace, Suite 11, Woodbridge, Connecticut 06525 | 203-819-7650

Addiction is known to hijack the brain and cause it to accept maladaptive behaviors as normal. The process of addiction can result in consequences such as: low self-esteem, guilt, shame, criminal activity, etc. I will provide a non-judgement and therapeutic environment to begin the recovery process. Together we will begin to identify triggers, coping and social skills to decrease risks and vulnerabilities for relapse. To schedule an appointment with Sheiketha call TR Counseling & Wellness at 203-819-7650.

I truly enjoy working with individuals struggling with addictions. Slowing down and moving the client into a different place and space is an area that I have had positive experiences with in my practice. Individually or in couples counseling or even at an Art and Science of Love Workshop has been a particular interest and area where I have succeeded as a therapist.

Part of my practice is treating substance use disorders and helping those who are struggling achieve sobriety and recovery. My approach focuses on developing and maintaining motivation for change, treatment and abstinence. I also take into account any co-occurring disorders and outside stressors which may be contributing to addiction. Once abstinence is obtained, I believe it is important to regularly set goals in order to implement lasting positive changes.

North Salem, New York 10560 | 914-232-7272

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.

215 Katonah Avenue, Katonah, New York 10536 | 914-232-4702

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.
