Sorting through substance abuse treatment options is difficult, with no guarantees, coupled with often high financial impact. Deciding which path to head down can feel like an insurmountable task. Most especially, the treatment requirements of teens and young adults are unique and often do not match up with standardized treatment programs. Our addictions therapist has over seven years experience working with adolescents and families, conducting chemical dependency assessments, and providing treatment in outpatient and inpatient settings. Call today to begin your journey towards a happier, healthier 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 my work with sex addiction treatment, people are often surprised when I tell them sex addiction isn’t about sex. You may wonder yourself, how can that be? When someone is “acting out” from their sexual behaviors and hiding in shame and secrecy, it’s easy to get distracted by the sordid sexual stories of infidelity, prostitution, pornography or other outward acts of indecency. But sex is only the vehicle or means by which the addict uses to achieve his “high”. Sex you see, is the byproduct or end result of a troubled inner condition. If therapists only focus on stopping the behavior, then that would only amount to a modicum of success. What needs to be altered is more than the external ....

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.

Have you ever gone to take a drink and known deep inside you that you don't want it, you're just doing it because it's what you do. There is some sense of compulsion to fill a hole or a need within you to be satisfied. Addiction is about more than alcohol, drugs, sex, food, etc. In a sense, we could "fill in the blank" with anything really that attempts to satisfy the lack of something deeper in our life. Addiction is worth exploring. What are the deeper needs that we are trying to satisfy with any of the things we find ourselves addicted to? Psychotherapy helps uncover those mysteries, to bring us to the core of what we really long for and desire to become.

2200 6th Avenue, Seattle, Washington 98121 | 206 898 3709

Addiction of any kind has a particular hold on the person experiencing it and the people around them. It can be hard to express and even harder to honestly take a look at. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential place to explore the effects of addiction. I am honest and direct but gentle with clients who are seeking help in this area. My approach is harm-reduction. Most often clients have success with cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive therapy and mindfulness. Tackling the effects of addiction and choosing to work hard to get better is a life-changing positive decision that will allow you to free yourself from unwanted behaviors and let you live the life you want.

If you have an addiction and are actively pursuing recovery through an addiction program of your choosing, I am happy to work with you to uncover the roots of your addictive behavior. I am not a good choice for a first line of response to recovery but I'm a good addition to your ongoing recovery work. Addiction is a way to change your emotional and mental state because you are finding it intolerable or distressing. Many addictions are fueled by underlying anxiety. I help clients discover and make sense of the foundations of their addictions in order to help them maximize their recovery process and by replacing harmful coping tools with newer, healthier ones.

I have see and experienced addiction first hand and I know that it is possible to regain your life and create the life you want. I have been on the inside and the outside of addiction and I know that it takes a tremendous amount of will and support to get through it. I have worked with chemically dependent mothers in a treatment facility and the strongest emotion that haunted them daily was shame. With addiction comes shames. I can help you overcome feelings of shame by providing an objective and non-judgmental perspective of the situation that causes you to feel this way.

Addiction, whatever it is, is like "emotional Tylenol" - it provides a temporary escape from whatever it is one wants to avoid feeling or facing. Our work together involves coming to know the many parts of you and your story and the feelings and thoughts that may seem unbearable so have you reaching for your emotional "drug of choice." Through this safe and compassionate process where you can feel supported and understood while challenged to open yourself to new experiences of yourself and your self in relationship to others, hope can be born and goals feel reachable. At first it may feel overwhelming, but over time relief can come.

1900 Dock Place, Suite #3, Seattle, Washington 98107 | 206-274-5889

I do counsel clients that struggle addiction but ask that clients with serious levels of addiction be willing to attend 12-step group while in therapy. I may in fact end therapy with clients who are not wiling to simultaneously seek help from behavioral programs. My reason for this is that therapy will kick up deeper levels of disruption with clients that will further elevate addiction if they are not involved in other forms of recovery. I do believe that relational therapy can heal deeper levels of addiction once stability is achieved in behavior.

You might be in a place of wondering whether you have a substance abuse or dependency problem, or you might already be in a recovery program and need guidance in working the steps or finding a sponsor. I will work to help you in your recovery process whether that means doing a Motivational Interview with you (this is simply a non-judgmental process of helping you look at how your substance or activity is affecting you relationally, physically, spiritually, financially and legally), or helping you heal from early childhood trauma.

For women facing love addiction your relationships can be painful and repetitive and feel at times out of control. I can help you face your pain and recover. For partners the trauma of having a husband or wife or partner addicted to porn or acting out with other people can be devastating. I offer ways to help you set boundaries and recover.

I believe the root of addiction is shame. Shame says I am bad, flawed, a failure, something is permanently broken in me. I don't believe that is true - but I do think that is what underlies your behavior. In treating addictions we will use Shame resilience to start noticing the precursors that lead to the thirst for your addictions. I know this is humbling, and scary - but give yourself a place to receive care. You are not beyond hope. Healthy guilt leads to repair, to ownership of the behaviors you have done and yet no self flagellation. Let's turn over that new leaf together.

I work with drug and alcohol addiction, gambling and sex addiction. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT).

902 Market St. Suite 310, Tacoma, Washington 98402 | 206-317-1898

Uncomfortable, powerful feelings from negative life experiences can cause some people to turn to the use of addictive subtances (alcohol, opiods, etc...) or behaviors (gambling, sexual choices, etc..) to provide relief from these feelings. When the use of these substances or behaviors increases to the point that it becomes a problem, or even unmanageable and paralyzing, then it needs to be addressed. My approach is to provide practical tools to help manage the addiction, while also unpacking the causes for the need for the substances or behaviors in the first place, and finding hope in the restoration of a life without addiction.

To some addiction may be something that they knew was in family and they had to be careful of. To others addiction may have come out of a trauma or life crisis that was too much to handle. For others addiction could have started for any infinite number of reasons. Whether it be a void that is being filled, or an undiscovered reason for use, addiction can improve through a holisitic discussion of one's life and unique strengths.

I work with alcoholism, drug addiction, sexual addiction, spending addiction and compulsive behaviors. I believe that these are coping mechanisms that "worked" at one time. Finding another way to comfort ourselves is key. I like 12 steps and what they have to offer as I believe that the addiction is a force of its own and we need a Power greater than ourselves to get better. I believe that for true recovery to happen, one needs to have a personality change to get away from the dry drunk state that leads them back into addiction. I have a lot of experience with this and have a lot of success stories. This is why I have chosen to specialize in this.
