Dr. Cali Estes featured in Real Leaders Magazine on mental health. Executives in the workplace with a drug or alcohol addiction can be hazardous to business and staff alike. Having to deal with a boss or coworker that issuing drugs or habitually drunk and hungover can not only impact new business but also drop morale and create a hostile work environment. Sending an executive to a treatment facility can take 30 plus days and cost upwards of $110,000 and there is no guarantee that the executive will remain sober. This puts a drain on the business and causes other employees to pick up the slack while the executive is gone. Click here to download pdf.
Dr. Cali Estes featured in Real Leaders Magazine on mental health. Firstly, she discusses her signature program, Sober on Demand, that is ripe for executives, CEO, and others that need an immediate, concierge, and private care in the comfort of their personal settings. Her concierge program will triage any issues in real-time and get the executive the help they need immediately.
Secondly, Dr. Cali Estes discussed the unique position of executives that can lead to mental health and addiction issues. Businesses and executives have been challenged to think outside the box and retain solutions that will work in real-time. Sending an executive to a 30-45-day inpatient treatment facility is no longer a viable and sustainable option. Having the treatment team come to the executive at his or her home and completing an intensive 3-5-day intensive therapy session with wrap around sober companion live in, seems to be the faster and more solid route.

I will go against the popular opinion and state that yes, narcissists can change if they want to, or if the stakes are high enough. Very similar to its opposing diagnosis, Borderline Personality Disorder, a person that is diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder can learn to change, if they choose to. One of the reasons they don’t change is that they end up dating or marrying their opposing personality and it feeds into their disorder.
To change, there must be a strong desire and a goal. For example, there has to be something or someone just quite out of reach and all the manipulation, lying, and persuasion won’t get them the thing they want. Their acting out is met with being ignored, or worse yet a turn-off for the person they are trying to woo.
The NPD client then learns that he or she must change their behavior to get the person or object. Not only is it uncomfortable for them, but they learn it can be done and it is now expected that they behave in this new manner.
So yes, the Narcissistic person can change, if they want to. Read more.
There are a lot of reasons why happy people are a lot healthier than most, and one of them is because they’re sick a lot less often. That’s right, happiness has quite an effect on your immune system. When we find ourselves in a good mood, we tend to stress less. “Less stress means that your body is not producing high amounts of cortisol,” clinical psychologist Dr. Cali Estes told Health Digest. This chemical is known to suppress our immune systems, so being happy could just be what prevents you from catching a common cold.
People who are happy may be able to get more out of their workouts too. “You will get more reps in, more steps in or more yoga in,” clinical psychologist Dr. Cali Estes told us. That’s because working out increases the amount of serotonin and dopamine that our brains make, two of the four happy chemicals that our brains constantly crave. This explains why many people claim that exercise quickly becomes addictive.
If thinking about hitting the gym isn’t such a happy thought, Dr. Estes suggests cranking up your favorite tunes as you work on getting toned. “The music makes their serotonin go up and they feel happy,” she said. Read more.
