Question: “I was thinking of getting into Recovery Coaching, but I don’t know where to start. What are your thoughts?” Jeremy B.
Cali Estes says: “Recovery Coaching is a career on the rise. As insurance fluctuates for what drug and alcohol treatment centers will accept, people still need quality care and they are willing to pay for it. Also the buzz word ‘coach’ is very popular now and a lot of people do not like the stigma of going to a therapist or counselor, but everyone from top executives to the mom next door has a coach.” At The Addictions Academy we offer the only National Certification Program in Recovery Coaching.

MIAMI, FL, January 03, 2014 — Each year, the Miami Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Miami area a great place to live, work and play.
“It is an honor to serve the people of the city of Miami and beyond,” Cali Estes, recipient said. “I know there is a lot of competition here and to be chosen as The Best Of Miami 2013 is really a great acknowledgement of the hard work that I do.”
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2013 Miami Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Miami Award Program and data provided by third parties.
“At The Addictions Coach we work very hard to take care of our clients,” Estes said. “We are very different than any other therapists, drug and alcohol treatment centers or professionals because we do not just focus on the behavior, we get to the root cause of the addiction and work with the client to fix it.”
The Addictions Coach offers addiction therapy, sober companion services, Recovery Coaching Services, Intervention services, and mobile drug and alcohol treatment services. With their sister company, The Addictions Academy, they provide education and classes to professionals.
The Miami Award Program is an annual awards program honoring the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the Miami area. Recognition is given to those companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.
The Miami Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Our organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups. Our mission is to recognize the small business community’s contributions to the U.S. economy.

Question: “What exactly is Recovery Coaching or Sober Coaching and how is that different from therapy?” John S. Austin Texas
Answer: “Recovery Coaching or Sober Coaching is different from therapy because in coaching we move forward and in therapy we move backwards with the clients. In Recovery Coaching we focus on the now behaviors and discuss what results are wanted now and in the future. We then discuss the blocks and obstacles that get in the way of those goals. Together we formulate a plan that will assist the clients in moving forward and meeting those goals. With therapy, it can take years, Recovery Coaching takes weeks to months. I actually look forward to when my clients fire me because they are doing so well. ”
Cali Estes says: “Well Robert, first we are the only evidence based practice model that is approved nationally by NAADAC that offers both Recovery Coaching and Intervention. There are a lot of local certifications that meet local board requirements but nothing national. Also, we have teamed up with Diversified Intervention Group to offer the first and only ISE Endorsement level Intervention Certification that goes above and beyond anything on the market today. We specialize in offering amazing courses that meet all National Requirements and offer the students the best possible education — all classes taught by master level teachers.

QUESTION: As an addiction professional don’t you think it is important if your client has committed a crime to make them pay for it? As in they stole something to get high and got caught and need to go to jail to learn a lesson? ~ submitted by Jay S. Newark, NJ
