Having risen as a leader in the quest to provide the cure for such maladies as, drug addiction, alcoholism and mental health disorders; Grey Matters International is now providing its array of high-end brain science recovery procedures to those living in Phoenix, Arizona.
Owned and operated by Dr. Kevin Fleming, Ph.D., Grey Matters International focuses on utilizing medical advancements in a manner that is showing quantifiable results in reaching a cure by way of reversing the brain’s addictive state. The longstanding belief that addiction and alcoholism are unable to be cured has evolved a great deal over the past decade. While the approaches to addiction recovery have been largely segmented into two specific categories, 12 Step and non 12 Step based, Grey Matters International takes on a unique hybrid stance that does not contradict nor discourage the attendance of 12 Step recoveries for those clients choosing to attend.
The process is termed “Neuroplasticity”
and has to do with actually changing the neural pathways and synapses in the limbic system which is largely responsible for the instinctively-
based, obsessive thought processes common to addicts and alcoholics. In such cases, the obsessive thought patterns driving the sufferer to drink, gamble or engage in drug use will nearly always override the thoughts generated by the upper brain’s logical reasoning that it is a bad idea filled with negative consequences. States Dr Fleming, “The brain wants to feel good; we’re driven by the instinctive need to feel good and get what we want. In the case of the addict or alcoholic, these thoughts become actual obsessions which transcend the stops put in place by the more advanced logical portion of the brain.”
Neuroplasticity as a method of recovery for addicts and alcoholics has been available for nearly a decade, and as is the case with most medical procedures, has seen numerous advancements over the years. Dr. Fleming states, “Over 30,000 procedures have been performed worldwide and with respect to those openly claiming they feel as if their addiction has been cured, the numbers are nothing less than astounding.”
The procedures are performed on an outpatient basis and are even offered on-site for those with special circumstance, such as; corporate executives, actors, professional athletes, etc. While much of Grey Matters’ clientele would fall into higher socioeconomic classes, the cost of services is substantially lower than that of typical higher-end drug rehabs providing less advanced approaches.
