The Addictions Coach selected to present certifications across the country.
Miami, Florida December 5, 2012
Cali Estes, owner of The Addictions Coach, which specializes in drug, alcohol and food addictions, has been chosen to present Recovery Coaching Certifications and Intervention Certifications throughout the nation. Estes teamed up with Diversified Intervention Group of California to be the first dual CADAAC and Florida Certification Board approved course providers.
Diversified Intervention Group is a 501 c 3 nonprofit organization with a mission to assist others in obtaining the services they desire and need even if they do not have the funds to do so. DIG offers services that include interventions, recovery coaching, sober companions, codependency coaching and now offering first class certifications in both recovery coaching and intervention.
“Since the show Intervention has been on television, people have wanted to learn to do what I have been doing for years,” Estes said. “So I decided that I would offer a course that covers exactly what I do and allows others to learn the trade. I teamed up with Diversified Intervention Group and we are offering the first combination courses of this kind in the nation. It is very cutting edge.”
There are a few local programs for intervention certifications, but this is the only course that offers both Intervention Certification and Recovery Certification and meets the need for Continuing Education Credits. All course participants will be able to use the course as a tax deduction and each participant will be fully certified and able to obtain insurance in the industry.
“There are a lot of people in this industry that are not credentialed or certified and simply just in recovery,” Estes said. “The problem is that without proper training a lot of issues can arise in a situation and someone that is not properly trained can’t handle some of the issues that may arise and the client will suffer. That is why we created a comprehensive course that covers all the details and possible scenarios.”
Cali Estes is known as the premier addictions coach in the industry. Cali has consulted in 2 countries and frequently flies between South Florida, New York and Los Angeles to work with her clients. She has clients in the music industry, acting/film, modeling, CEO’s and frequent high stress jobs clients. She is available on an individual basis for clients, more intensive or for speaking engagements. She has accompanied clients to high risk situations like weddings, worked ‘on set’ of movie and film productions, worked directly with pro athletes, sat in on business meetings, been ‘on tour’ with musicians and even will work directly in the home of the client for a more intensive ‘rehab’ setting.
Cali is more than a ‘sober coach’. She has a background in clinical and personality psychology, addictions and forensics. She can get to the root of the addiction quickly and work with the client in building a safe environment in which to make the changes necessary to live a productive lifestyle. Clients in addiction feel powerless, helpless and hopeless and need answers and ways to change their lives. Sometimes family and friends think that everyone should be able to have ‘just one drink’ at a function, but for some clients that is not what happens. That one drink turns them into an unmanageable individual that their family and friends cannot deal with.
