The Addictions Coach and founder of The Addictions Academy, Dr. Cali Estes, confirmed they are providing free tuition for their Nationally Certified Professional Recovery Coach, Interventionist, and Family Recovery Coach training programs to any parent of a child lost to drug addiction or overdose.
The Interventionist training provides the step-by-step strategies and methods to successfully help people get into rehab or detox, allowing them the opportunity to turn their lives around.
When asked about the Addictions Recovery Coach training, Dr. Estes explained, “Recovery coaching professionals, good ones, are able to delve into the current and existing issues that are holding someone back in life and help them move forward, addiction free. This is about creating the perfect and customized blend of guidance, information, accountability, and oversight.”
Families of an addict are often confused themselves about addiction and where to turn with some of the issues that are going on within the family dynamic system.
The Nationally Certified Family Recovery Coaching course spotlights strategies professionals can use to help families pick up the pieces before, during and after their loved one gets help in a traditional treatment setting.
Dr. Estes recently went on record to say that our current system of addiction and substance-abuse treatment does not always work and that professional coaches and interventionists are needed more than ever.
Explaining the need for an increase in professional Recovery Coaches, Interventionists and Family Recovery Coaches, Estes noted, “The first step towards effective treatment and coaching can be the toughest. And getting the addict to agree to what they see as a giant leap, to accept help, can be a game-changer.”
The Centers for Disease Control reports that drug overdose deaths continue to increase in the United States. From 1999 to 2017 more than 700,000 people have died from a drug overdose. Families are often caught blind-sided by a loved one’s death and are often compelled to help others as a healthy way to deal with their grief. Becoming an Addictions Recovery Coach can be a good fit for some.
Nearly 200 people are succumbing to overdose every day in the United States right now. That’s a lot of parents left to manage the loss which feels pointless to many.
With the incidences of an overdose so high, Dr. Estes’ plan of preventing them in the first place makes sense to many experts.
“We need to start to think differently about when to intervene in the addiction. Waiting until someone is already dead and then trying to revive them with Narcan is not really a plan, it’s a reaction,” Estes declared. “Let’s get them the help they need before that even happens.”
Her goal: to get as many professionally trained recovery interventionists and coaches out there as possible. Structured, professional help from trained and certified professionals can often be the difference between life and death.
Intervention training tends to focus on clinical and detox assessment and family system dynamics because the crisis is not the sole problem of the addict. A Recovery Coach is a person that works with and supports individuals immersed in an addiction, and coaches people in recovery from the abuse of alcohol and drugs, gambling, eating disorders or other addictive behaviors. Family Recovery Coaching uses enhanced methods to help families struggling with their loved one’s addictions challenges.
“We have several different methods of crisis to allow the addict to realize they need help, then we get the addict the proper support to give them another chance at life,” Estes said. “Every situation is different and needs to be customized for the client and their family.”
When asked why she was offering the scholarships for the parents, Dr. Estes asserted, “These are the people who are unfortunately directly affected by this epidemic. They might have other children or have a desire to learn how they could instantly save someone’s life and change the course of history by tapping into some basic, but powerful, skills.”
Dr. Cali Estes and The Addictions Academy have been offering a wide-ranging assortment of advanced training for years in an on-going effort to counteract the growing addiction problem. The Academy has more than 30 faculty teaching over 40 courses in five different languages. Program graduates can be found in 23 countries helping address the addiction problem worldwide.
