Pat Spurlin, Owner/HPS Addiction Services
“I took Cali Estes Intervention training class several years ago and was amazed at the depth of information I received from the class. The class was comprehensive with real life possible scenarios. The class was fun and enjoyable! As I said I took the class several years ago and since then I’ve been helping many families and individuals afflicted from this disease of addiction to their road of awareness, healing and recovery. I also would like to share that in the several years that I have been an interventionist Cali has repeatedly helped in the field by responding to questions in real time not days later but minutes later. I have recommend Cali’s Intervention classes to other people and will continue to do so! Cali is an example of the great people in this industry who really care about helping families recover.” Thanks Cali!!

I along with several former pro football players you’ve seen on the weekly huddle, have recently been in training to become a certified Recovery Coach. You have… therapist to talk to about your past, underlining issues and access mental health. Detox to stabilize you, Rehab to get you emotionally, physically and tools for a sober walk. I have for the last 2 years exposed my problems with addiction. Freedom of the bondage from the disease thru Christ, intervention, detox, inpatient, IOP, and spiritual guidance thru continued education and training. I.e. The Addiction Academy (CEO Cali Estess), Problem Solving Theatre, Psycho Drama (Dr. Meg Givnish). Jesus Christ (King among all Kings)
Whether you are a pro athlete, CEO of a corporation, or in recovery from an addiction, you need a COACH!

“Awesome class! Learned so much and had a great time with all of you! Excellent Class!”
Claudia Rudolph, New Jersey
“One of the best intensives I have taken in a while!”
“I want to thank you again for your help with my first official intervention. Literally almost everything thing you said would happen, HAPPENED. The biggest take aways for me where, ALWAYS make sure the guns are out of the house, trust your gut instinct on what family members should be at the intervention, don’t get disappointed if the person says no at first, and don’t underestimate the power of the bottom line :)”
Eric Peyton, Dallas Texas
“Thanks so much for that. That was awesome. Very informative and helpful. I don’t have much experience in this field professionally so this was monumentally helpful and I’m grateful. Look forward to working together in the future!! Here’s my name for the certificate and I’ll put my address below it for mailing. Thanks again!!”

Gail Steele, Colorado
“I loved the first part of the training today. It seemed very real life and informative”.
Eric Peyton, Dallas Texas
“So I decided to get the national intervention certification. I had been doing 12-step calls and intervening on drug addicts for a while. I wanted the certification but didn’t think I would learn anything in the class. I was wrong! I learned so many things about doing interventions that I never knew. I feel way more confident now when doing an intervention. Thank you Callie Estes! Can’t wait to get back in class soon to get that sober coach certification.”
“If it wasn’t for Reverend Kevin, Barbara Theodosiou, my loving mother, and Cali Estes the CEO of the addictions academy who raised $250,000 worth of scholarships for The Addict’s Mom I would surely be in prison at this time. New Beginning is and has saved my life. The people here have helped me in ways I never could have imagined.”

I called Cali Estes and gave her my vision and she said she could help me become a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach. I took the Intervention class and she was very informative. She had patience with me and told me things to where I can understand them. We did role play. I did Recovery Coaching I and II and Intervention. Today I own my own business. It is called Follow Through Recovery Coaching. Cali and the Addictions Academy has given me the tools that I need so I can live out my dreams in helping out the addict or alcoholic that still suffers. If you are interested give Cali a call."

As the New York Yankees Intervention Coach, attending “The Addictions Academy provided me the opportunity to become a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach. I took the Intervention classes which were very informative. The classes were taught in a manner where I can understand them and were very worthwhile. We did role play. I did Recovery Coaching I and II and Intervention. Taking these classes with Cali and the Addictions Academy has given me the tools that I need to better assist the needs of the New York Yankees’ players, coaches and staff.

Testimonial by Rev Kevin Coughlin
This manual is an excellent resource for the Christian Recovery Coach, and presents a biblical view in a precise manner that gives the reader a firm basis to begin recovery coaching with confidence. It hits all the main points without burdening the reader with irrelevant material. I highly recommend this manual as a resource for anyone entering this field recovery coaching.

Derek Gwaltney, VP of Client Services
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.
Carol Carter, CAP Clinical Director Revive Detox
"Thank you for your knowledge, I believe everyone was truly blessed by you and your wisdom in helping people see the need for treatment. We are growing and want to encompass all levels of care for people to have the right continuum of care that truly empowers people to continue on the right path. Being able to mentor and love on each client to help them through the tough times and the good times is very rewarding and I do see a valuable need for a Recovery Coach, my best friend just got certified as a Recovery Coach".
I just want to thank Cali Estes and the team at The Addictions Academy for their professionally run and well developed training program. I signed up for the live Advanced Clinical Intervention Training in South Florida. I have been performing interventions for a while for the facility I work with and I thought I would do the training to get my certificate and that was all I was expecting.
I had always thought you should run an intervention as you see them run on television. In fact, I would try and replicate what I watched as closely as possible. Although I had success performing interventions, I often felt as though I didn’t really have control of the situation and I sometimes felt lost during the intervention. After working with The Addictions Academy I understand that I was not preparing myself of the others involved in the intervention in a manner that was giving us the best possible chance of a successful outcome. Furthermore, I was not working with the person being intervened on in a manner that was going help my goal. In short, I was doing everything I thought was right, but not doing nearly enough to really have a good intervention.
Shortly after completing the training I was approached to do an intervention. It felt great knowing what questions to ask beforehand, during and after the intervention. I simply applied the tools and approaches I was taught and the intervention was a completely different experience. The person that contacted me felt at ease because it was clear to him that I knew what I was doing. I had set up a plan, I had everything prepared in a clear and easy manner and I was able to help them understand how it was going to go.
When it came time for the intervention, we had everything lined up and I felt like I had control of the situation. I didn’t do a lot of the wrong things I had done on past interventions and instead I did things that was going to get us closer to a good result. I imagined I was sitting with Cali in the room playing out one of the many role playing sessions I had done with Cali and the other people present at the training. It was the easiest most comfortable intervention I had ever been a part of and I believe everyone in the room felt comfortable during the session also.
I now feel much more confident going into an intervention because I have the tools and training to know I am offering families and loved ones of addicts a good chance to help their loved ones realize they have a problem and we have a solution.
During the training I scheduled a web training for my admissions director and he also learned a lot during his training.
Patrick Myers, MBA, CEO
Care Connection of Tampa
"Cali, your (clinical intervention) course is definitely working. My friend from NYC called me crying and told me how she had become and addict. I followed what I learned so far and convinced her to go to treatment. She‘s on her way and calling her family for help. You’re the real deal .... I am honored to sit in that chair this week."
Jared Wade Collins
"I have now completed three courses with The Addictions Academy: Nationally Certified Gambling Addiction Coach, Life Coach, and Prevention Professional. My instructor for all three courses was the Program Director, Rev. Kevin T. Coughlin. He made lecturing and teaching the courses seem so effortless. His humor, timing and teaching made it so easy for all of his students to understand and retain the material in each course. I could see and hear that he is a great coach and professional through the experiences that he shared and the techniques of his lectures. Most importantly he makes the classes fun and exciting with interaction and role play. I can’t wait to utilize all the skills and tools that I have already learned, and look forward to learning more. I thank The Addictions Academy, keep up the sensational work! I can’t wait until the next course!"
Jared Wade Collins NCGAC, NCLC, NCAPP, CMT
Cali Estes is a dynamic, captivating and confident speaker and trainer. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and fun to listen to and learn from.

“I found out about you on linkedin. I just wanted to thank you for all the good things you are trying to do. Iwish you every blessing may everything be in your favor. I hope you will have increased ability to help in the best way. I think of the good old days when if a neighbor was building a barn everyone would come and help. I think it is still a good way to do things! So I hope this email helps somehow, and lots of incredibly good things go your way!!!” Joe Lebaron
” Thanks again, Cali! You are a wealth of information, skill, expertise and experience! I’m very happy with my decision to take your courses. I appreciate the real life emphasis intertwined with the theoretical. I especially like the case studies, even though they are very difficult examples, they help to pull the learning all together. I’m usually not one to ask for help (even when I need it), but I may call on you in the future if I run into a problem with a client that I can’t figure out by myself!”
Laurie Fear, Vice President Recovery Coaches International
“Conducted an intervention yesterday, it took 3 hours and produced positive results. Very excited- This intervention was conducted 2 days prior to an additional intervention with another client, that intervention produced the desired results as well, both clients are doing well and haved turned the page in their own personal story, the story of long term recovery. I want to give a shout out to The Addictions Academy NAADAC CEU’s, for making all this possible. It should be noted that I have also begun the process of conducting anger management courses with one of the most highly regarded treatment centers in our area, again, with the credentials I have received with training through the Addictions Academy NAADAC CEU’s.Call Cali Estes 1.800.706.0318 National Certs” Steve Emery NCGAC, NCFRC, NCAMP, NCIP, NCRC- l & ll

“I’m thrilled with your Intervention Training. I took the course in July, and was recently contacted to assist with an intervention. I did my advance work, had screened treatment centers for our client and ready to go, insurance pre-certified. I explained to the family and friends the likely scenarios, and how we would need them to behave at the intervention to insure success. As the young man in need of help was in a hotel, we arrived at the hotel, shared a couple of letters and within 30 minutes he was on his way to a treatment center, and the start of a new life in recovery!” Thanks. 914-837-4233 (mobile) Rick Smith

The question is always the same, how can I, as their criminal DEFENSE attorney, favorably resolve their criminal case, while simultaneously helping them face their abuse issues. I need the assistance of someone who can help me address THEIR SUBSTANCE AB– USE issues. The solution is often A RECOVERY COACH, and no one has ever been of greater support, assistance or had more RECOVERY COACHING knowledge than Cali. She knows the system, she knows the issues and she knows the solutions. I say thank you, but more importantly my clients always say “thank you Cali”.

My head is still spinning!I was really looking forward to it and I know I came away learning so much. Ideally I should have done Recovery 1 first, but I think it will all work out fine in the end. Though, I did feel a bit intimidated by the rest of the class in my lack of knowledge and experience. As far as my professional experience, I’ll just have to be patient and let things happen. At least I have my vast drinking experience to draw from!!!!
You were a fabulous teacher. I loved hearing about all of the clients you have worked with. You made me comfortable in asking questions and not feeling stupid! Looking forward to taking my next course. Thank you. ” Elizabeth Zeolla

“I have completed several other training programs for addiction intervention before the Nationally Certified Interventionist Training (NCIP-1) and your program is the best by far. Not only was it cost effective, but the practical experience and interactive web approach should set the standard for the training.

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!” 818.877.9892 www.jmmaddictionrecovery.com James M. Michie, Owner, Los Angeles, CA
Cali’s Recovery Coach and Intervention trainings were extremely valuable. In two weekends I learned an enormous amount of information both from Cali and from the participants. Cali is charismatic, dynamic, extremely knowledgeable and experienced and she is smart as a whip!! I left the course wanting more which is the best sign of a great training”. www.faulknertherapy.net Ellen Faulkner, Owner, Philadelphia PA
“My name is Debbie Perkins and I took Cali’s Interventionist certification class. I was in addiction all my life and I have been sober for several years. I wanted to start helping people who were in addictive addiction decide to go into treatment. There are several models that a person that is going to do an Intervention can use that I had no clue about. She taught me what I needed to know to be successful in doing an Intervention. I recommend taking her class to anyone who has decided to become an Interventionist! Debbie Perkins www.realintervention.com ” Deb Perkins, Owner, Delray Beach, FL
“ I really enjoyed the training and thought it was very informative. I read through the manual prior to the class and I am happy we didn’t read it work for word. My co workers here were very impressed with my certification and wanted to learn more but I am not sure if they are in the market for something like that at this time. My place of work is called The Granite House in Derry NH” David Megenis, Derry, NH
I took both the Recovery Coach and the Intervention training with Cali and I am extremely pleased that I did. I was skeptical at first of attending a Webinar but it was a great class and I felt like I was in a classroom enviroment. Cali is an outstanding instructor and very personable, no question went unanswered. Cali uses her personal experiences to prepare students for real life situations. I would strongly suggest these courses for anyone who is in the field or wanting to get in the field or recovery coaching and interventions. Joseph R.
