What is Addiction Music Camp? Let The Addictions Coach Tell You All About It!


Welcome to “Addiction Camp,” a collaboration between The Addictions Coach and Angel Bartolotta of The Rock Box Music School and Stage.

This one-of-a-kind endeavor seeks to meld the powerful forces derived from the passion of learning and creating music, especially as experienced among those who have for some reason hidden from it or been deprived of it in some capacity. In fact, this powerful new realm of recovery is as much for non-music players as it is the musician extraordinaire!

By now you know Dr. Cali Estes, so please meet Angel Bartolotta (aka: Andrew Bartolotta). From a kid banging on pots and pans, to a studio session drummer and hired-gun, touring the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Angel has devoted his entire life to the art of drumming. Today however, Angel is best known as the drummer for Dope, Genitorturers, Team Cybergeist, PIG, Crossbreed, Switched, The Undead and many other bands, as well as being an Artist on the DW, PDP, Zildjian, Evans and ProMark rosters

The “Addiction Camp” is offered exclusively to those who already have at least a 90-day foundation in sobriety – this is NOT intended to be used in place of detox, treatment or other therapeutic or clinical support service. The Addiction Camp is offered in one-week intervals, four times per year, and takes place in North Port, FL about 10 miles off the Florida Gulf Coast and approximately 50 miles southeast of Sarasota.


In 2016, Angel along with wife and co-owner Sally Bartolotta, opened The Rock Box Music School & Stage; a place where aspiring and growing musicians can learn how to play an instrument, perform live on stage and record in a real studio – The Rock Box offers it all. With over 20 years of drumming experience, world touring and major studio sessions under his belt, Angel offers much more than the average drum instructor!


The week-long Addiction Camp provides many key tools shown to greatly enhance one’s stability and level of passion in life and in sobriety, among which are:

  • Instrumental lessons designed around the client’s passions, likes, etc.
  • Providing in-studio sessions designed to enhance the experience
  • Experience Angel’s proprietary learning method for musical instruments
  • Private therapy sessions with Dr. Cali Estes throughout the week
  • Local lodging with added meal & nutrition services
  • Daily spiritual and holistic support services designed to address the client’s individual needs
  • And so much more!


The Addictions Coach rarely teams up with other professionals or organizations. When we do however, you can be assured that our focus is centered entirely around that which is in the client’s best interests. Our many years of hands-on expertise has shown that there exists a certain x-factor component when it comes to how music can touch the human soul and alter it forever. And within that magic, few people can truly rise as being experts within that scope as Angel has…we are very excited to offer this joint endeavor we call “Addiction Camp.”
