The Addictions Academy offers training at CoreVision Treatment in Colorado

3 Day Training Intensive in Colorado to include Recovery Coaching Certification and Intervention Training at CoreVision
 

PRLogJune 27, 2015MIAMI
The Addictions Academy announced that they will be offering their signature Nationally Certified Recovery Coach Level I Training and National Intervention Professional Training in a 3 Day Intensive hosted by CoreVision IOP in Colorado.

The event runs July 11-13 2015 in downtown Colorado Springs. The Addictions Academy will offer a 3 day intensive training that covers the art of recovery coaching the individual in addiction and incudes drugs alcohol and gambling addictions. The intervention portion covers both surprise methods of intervention and invitational methods of intervention with focus on the opiate and heroin population.  All materials, documents, legal and ethical needs are covered for you to start your own business and begin brining in clients.

“Our Intervention training is like no other on the market. We offer a proven process that teaches our students how to do intervention in under 8 hours,” Cali Estes, CEO said. “We don’t believe in long drawn out interventions with the family that end up focusing on other issues within the family system. We do not think there should be a nine month process to get someone into treatment and we also teach multiple ways to help the client. We want our students to succeed in each case to the best of their abilities.”

The Addictions Academy offers a unique intervention strategy that focuses on the client and the process of using body language and overcoming objections to get the client into treatment. They have coined it the RAAD model and it is especially effective with the opiate population. Therapists, doctors, those in recovery, moms of addicts, and others wanting to learn how to get someone into treatment have taken their classes.

The Recovery Coaching Class and Certification Level I covers how to coach a client using the core competencies coaching system, employing life skills, coping skills, activities to get the client out of their comfort zone, stress reduction and more. The class also includes all the documents to get a business started, including contracts, HIPAA forms, and marketing and banding to grow your client base.

Designed for therapists that want to take on new clients and branch out into the coaching world and also for those in recovery that want a new career or to simply give back, the courses at The Addictions Academy meet that demand.  .

“People are calling themselves Recovery Coaches, Sober Coaches and Interventionists with little or no training in this industry,” Cali Estes, CEO said.  “The community demanded a new way of standardization and product definition and we stepped up to meet that demand. States are requiring a National Certification and proof that you can offer the services you are charging for and we have been awarded the ability to provide that.”

The location is CoreVision, run by CEO Nathan Hardage. Nathan lost an opportunity to play pro football by using drugs and he has founded The Drug Recovery Network and CoreVision to assist others in getting and staying sober. The location is Colorado Springs and both The Addictions Academy and Core Vision would love to have you out for the classes.

“CoreVision   provides addiction treatment and care while acknowledging the fact that our clients need more than just treatment, but a complete life change,” Nathan Hardage CEO said. “Therefore we must meet them where they are and truly walk beside them through their life transition. We work on the mind, body and spirit.

Certificate in Family Recovery Coaching (CFRC)

Certificate in Family Recovery Coaching

As much as an addict needs a coach, so does the family. The families of the addicts are often confused themselves about addiction and where to turn with some of the issues that are going on within the family dynamic. Often the family has been enabling the addict so long that when the addict goes to treatment they feel lost and confused. Sometimes they even expect the addict to come home after 28 days or so ‘cured’ and ‘fixed’.  As a Family Recovery Coach we will explore all the family roles using Claudia Black’s work and explore the dynamic the family plays in the addict’s life and their own lives.

As a Family Recovery Coach you will learn how to deal with different personalities, educate the family on addiction, work alongside the other therapists and Recovery Coaches that are in the addict’s life and guide the family through the process. Ethics and HIPAA will be covered, Duty to Warn, Confidentiality and all forms and contracts that you would need to start a successful practice as a Family Recovery Coach will be provided. Pharmacology will also be addressed and qualifying the family will be explored. Role play and real live scenarios will be used so that you are ready to tackle any issues or concerns as they arise.

Therapists and Recovery Coaches are usually great at what they do – help the client. BUT when it comes to marking themselves and gaining new business, they falter. A lot of people are simply not sure where to start and how to get the word out about what they are doing. Sometimes it is actually asking for the rate they deserve that is the issue. We cover it all in this course. From what to stay to potential customers and clients to closing the deal, we can help.

The marketing of your new company is paramount. We cover website, social media presence, guerilla marketing, contracts, B2B marketing and even word of mouth referrals. We help you build YOUR unique brand and find your niche in this market. Whether you are just starting out in your business or you want to garner new clients or make the switch from therapist to coach, we cover the steps to take to get new business and keep new business coming in the door.

Samples of contracts, letters and all the steps from the ground up to start a business, and to more importantly, brand your business are taught.  Class size is limited to 6 for individual and personalized experience. Bring your questions and samples of what you have already begun to class. Please note this class is NOT available for NAADAC CEU’s at this time.

 

Anger Management Training and Certificate Program (NCAMP)

Anger Management Training and Certificate Program

Dealing with the angry client can be tough and learning how to help them heal is frustrating. When it comes to addiction, anger from either the client or family is always present in the equation. The client is angry at themselves and the lack of control that they have over the situations that they are in. The family is angry at the client for all of the destructive and embarrassing behavior that he or she has displayed.

Knowing where to start with the client and the family and getting through the anger barrier is what we will cover. Ways to squash the anger, process it and free it will be taught. Coping skills and ways to deal with underlying feelings will be explored. Anger verses rage will be explored. Activities to challenge the client and family will be provided. Emphasis will be on talk therapy but also alternative methods to release the aggression and anger will be investigated and recommendations for clients to explore their own anger and learning transference methodology to block the client’s destructive path will be taught.

Bing able to lead groups, individual sessions and offer your services to both court programs and treatment centers is paramount. We will instruct you on the ways of both.

Life Coach Certificate Program (NCLC)

Life Coach Certificate Program

Our Life Coach Training and Life Coach Certificate Program (NCLC) is available to the addictions field as well as people not in the addiction studies industry.  At The Addictions Academy we specialize in teaching coaching skills to all of our students. Life Coaching is at the forefront of the coaching industry and people are hiring life coaches over therapists for several issues and areas of their lives. It is no longer considered ‘in’ to have a therapist, coaching has taken over. Everyone has a coach.

At The Addictions Academy, our Life Coach Certificate Program will assist you in helping clients make progress in all areas of their lives: relationships, health, career, life balance, spirituality, finances, business, school, etc. You will be valued by your clients and they will love to come and talk with you because you get results.

As a life coach, you’ll get to spend your days helping people on a deep, personal and unique level. You’ll be an instrumental part of helping them find the success and happiness that they’re looking for. You can work from home, from your office, or go to your client’s home or office. You can work via telephone, Skype or in person.

National Certificate in Gambling Addiction Coaching (NCGAC)

National Certificate in Gambling Addiction Coaching

As a Gambling Addiction Coach you will address both problem gambling and compulsive gambling with your clients. Similar to a drug or alcohol addiction, the gambling or gaming becomes a need and a compulsion to not only entertain but remove specific feelings of stress, anger, discord, etc. As a Gambling Addiction Coach we address these feelings, needs and compulsions with our clients and provide new coping skills and ways of structuring their lives that are productive and meaningful.

“Problem gambling” is any gambling behavior that disrupts your client’s life. If you find your client obsessing over the next bet, the next scratch off or the next win, they need some assistance.  Maybe they have gotten the drugs and alcohol addiction under control and now they are playing dice or poker incessantly. Maybe the primary addiction is gambling. As a Gambling Addiction Coach you will be taught about the natural release of endorphins that gambling produces, similar to sex, exercise and happy surprises. Gambling is a process addiction and hard to control. At The Addictions Academy we will teach you tips and tricks on getting a client’s gambling addiction under control.

National Certificate in Case Management  (NCCM)

National Certificate in Case Management

Case Management has never been more important to a client staying sober and getting the proper services needed. A lot of drug and alcohol treatment facilities expect the therapist to provide their own case management for the client and they simply do not have the time to offer both therapy and proper case management.  If a drug and alcohol treatment facility is large enough to have their own case manager on staff, it is imperative that he or she has the proper training to offer services. The Addictions Academy has developed a comprehensive training program in Case Management with full Certificate Program. We cover all the tools necessary for a stellar case manager to assist their clients in getting the best services possible. Your client’s success rates can be improved by your ability to offer an array of services. The Addictions Academy can show you how to market yourself and bill out both on insurance or cash pay with our case management certificate program.

Recently, a new breed of business is opening with people offering case management services to clients coming out of therapy, drug and alcohol treatment and other facilities because the facilities simply do not have time and drop the ball. That is where The Addictions Academy comes in. We train you properly in case management and how to develop the skills necessary to offer top notch case management services for your clients. If having your own company or adding aftercare provider services to your existing list of services is paramount, we will cover all the items you need to succeed with your clients.

National Certificate in Ethics Training (NCEC)

National Certificate in Ethics Training

The Addictions Academy’s Ethics Training course holds our students to the highest standards in the industry. Our students are professionals; our code of ethics and responsibilities is considered paramount in all of our training courses. Areas to be covered will include fraud related conduct, safety and welfare, confidentiality, professional standards, sexual misconduct, unlawful conduct, record keeping, exploitation, unqualified practice, cooperation during investigation, working in different states, definitions, report writing, dos and don’ts, case management, action plans, and scenarios.

Most people start to yawn when you say the word ethics. The truth is, there is a great deal more to ethics and responsibilities then most professionals ever imagined. Being on solid ground ethically will make all the difference when it comes to success and failure. You don’t ever want to be on the wrong side of ethics. You have boundaries and rules that must be followed and you are responsible to know what they are! The good news is that learning about ethics doesn’t have to be boring! Through role play and student interaction, interjecting different scenarios into the class setting for the students to solve is usually quite fun and entertaining, as well as informative. Remember that knowledge is power.

The local, state, and federal laws are ever changing; it is your responsibility to stay informed. The course is three hours in length and contains 3 continuing education hours. The course is NAADAC approved and you will receive a certificate upon completion and passing the exam. Our instructors are constantly taking seminars themselves to stay current with the latest trends. We hope to see you in the next class this is a must for all serious professionals!

TESTIMONIALS

TESTIMONIALS

“On behalf of myself, and all the attendees from Lakeview Health, we would like to express our gratitude for the training you conducted with us last week. The training was comprehensive, and easy to follow for some employees not as versed in the field of interventions. Following the training, everyone felt confident and comfortable with conducting an intervention. Cali did an excellent job of walking us through the steps, one by one. We now know the importance of the RAAD model and each of it’s components. The phone call and pre-work are just as important as the intervention itself. I would highly recommend Cali and The Addictions Academy to anyone looking to join or excel in the field of Addictions.” Derek Gwaltney Lakeview Health

“The staff and I thought the training was very well done. The book you sent us has a lot of good information that can be used in the future. It was great to cover so many types of interventions, before the training I was only experienced in the Johnston model. Being able to watch the role play was also a great way to see these in action. ”  Danny McQuinn, Owner of Clean Start Interventions. My phone numbers are 765-301-1555 and 765-301-1554.

“After working for several years in Stockholm, Sweden with clients suffering from addiction, dual diagnosis and mental illness, I consider myself very fortunate to have discovered your course(s) while searching for work/clients after relocating to Los Angeles last year. Your training is top notch with practical step by step instruction and course materials on how to set up a coaching practice and insightful sample case study group exercises. I was amazed at the amount of valuable information, helpful strategies and tips that were presented in the relatively short course duration. I warmly recommend your training to anyone working in this field. Thank you!”

Recovery Coaching Certification for Professionals.

Professional Coaching is Not Peer Coaching!  SAY WHAT?????

Recovery Coaching for professionals.

I have no choice but to believe that successful people think and take action in different ways then other people do.  I believe that people solve problems in different ways.  There are many factors for a person to take into consideration when problem solving: worldview, culture, religion, education, training, peers, intelligence, attitude, patience, and perspective, among many other less remarkable qualities of a person.
Perhaps that’s one reason why people learn in so many different ways. For example, some people are visual learners; some are touch or experience learners.  They are three very different types of students of life.
If a person can’t solve a problem in their life, they indeed have a serious problem. We will assume that the person has tried every method that they know of to try and solve as stated problem. The person realizes that they need some type of external assistance if this problem is ever to be solved.  That takes a reasonable amount of intelligence; for a person to realize their own limitations.  It’s time to reach out!  The dilemma is where or who should they turn to?

The answer comes like lightning in comparison to their last problem.
This is exactly why professional coaching has become such a thriving field.  Everyone needs a little help now and then.  A good professional coach will look at a situation like this one and know without a doubt that there’s a solution for this problem.  The coach will automatically know that the person or client has tried everything that they could think of to solve the problem prior to calling for assistance. A good coach never underestimates the capabilities of the client.
Now it’s time for the coach to do what professional coaches do best, coach!
The coach sets the coaching foundation by establishing trust and ethical standards, establishing an agreement, and co-creating a relationship with the client and establishing an intimate coaching presence.  The coach then opens his tool bag and takes out active listening, powerful questions, paraphrasing, and direct communication.   The coach is a master of body language, tones, and inflections listening for what the client says and doesn’t say. Then the coach is creating awareness, designing actions, planning and goal setting, managing progress and accountability.  The coach uses intuition, using all their senses, taking everything into account.  Certified Recovery Coaches must consider that clients are experts in their own fields.  Recovery Coaches need to be sharp and aware of traps and pitfalls that will block them from success.  In the client’s mind, the goal is not reachable.
The coach knows that if the client has a clear goal, and works a solid action plan, but still has no solution, then there’s a perspective problem.  The coach will help the client work through their block to solution.  They celebrate every victory along the way!  That’s why the coach can’t look at the problem in the same way as the client.  A problem that can’t find a solution has a definition problem!  Obviously the coach doesn’t want to use the same process that the client used.  Through powerful questioning, the coach will help the client to see the problem in a new way.  If the coach continues to listen to the client’s original perspective, the coach can get caught up in the client’s emotions, feelings, and problem thinking.
Every problem has a solution because the problem defines the solution.  Sometimes it’s hard to see!  We all need a little help at times.  Professional Recovery Coaches help us to see through the perspective problem and reach the solution that we knew was there all along!  Coach and client, two successful people working together to reach solutions in new ways.

The natural laws of cause and effect will allow the coach to go deeper in their questions only if the client is at “cause.” At cause the client is taking responsibility for their actions.  At “effect” the client is still blaming the problem on external factors.  The coach knows that the client’s limited beliefs don’t serve them very well.  The coach will need to move the client to a belief that is much more resourceful. If the answer is outside of the client, they think that the problem is happening to them. They are powerless to change.  At cause, the coach can question much deeper and the client has the power to change.

The Recovery Coach must be flexible through the process.  The entire process is client and goal driven.

The action plan must be very specific, with target dates and follow up dates.  The coach holds the client accountable through the process.  The coach is the alpha, even though the process is all about the client.

These well trained professional coaches help save careers, companies, projects, and sometimes even lives!  Don’t be confused, these are not peer recovery  coaches, these are Professional Recovery Coaches!  There are many niches within the field of professional coaching: life coaches, executive coaches, career coaches, recovery coaches, fitness coaches, financial coaches, relationship coaches, Christian coaches, and many more specializations.  There are certified master coaches that go through a rigorous training and certification process.  There are also some Colleges, Universities, Academies, and Seminaries offering degrees in the art of coaching.
