Dr. Cali Estes - The Addictions Academy ®

Ask The Expert:

Question: What do your professional students have to say about your classes?

Answer:  Cali Estes says “Let our students speak for themselves.  See our Testimonials Below”




“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.  The two day intensive was so thorough, I plan to insist that any interventionist I work with complete this program before we work together.  Thoughtful and effective! This was the best intervention training of all the programs that I have attended.” Stephen Timmer


“As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has added  life coaching to my private practice , Cali’s Recovery Coaching course provided  additional tools I can use with my clients in recovery.”  Sherry Gaba, LCSW,  author of The Law of Sobriety.  Sherry Gaba, LCSW Psychotherapist and Life Coach  Author of “The Law of Sobriety” To get my free weekly newsletter sign up here.

“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.

I thought the certification  was comprehensive and
dynamic.” Danny Mcquinn
“Cali is a great facilitator as well as a coach who  knows what she’s dealing with.  People who take her certification will be more  equipped to handle the many complications that come with addictions and how we  can better handle those who suffer them.  From the practical issues involved in  handling fees and time management to the clinical mental health issues, she  covers all bases to help us work better to create a winning recovery  team.”

Rob Marchesani, MSSc, LP New York City

“I just wanted to say thank you for the training that  you offered on interventions. The written material is informative, and well organized.  The live webcam offered an interactive experience that was easy to  follow.  As a teacher, I found you to be extremely well informed, patient and  able to answer all questions professionally and effectively as they arose.  Thank  you for a great training experience!”  Debbie Maidman, BA, CASAC, NCIP Lifescape  Solutions Outreach Coordinator C-561.301.2826; 845.304.1586 Fax: 561.265.5673  www.lifescapesolutions.com

“Cali’s clinical knowledge and successful experiences  with interventions makes this course a must! Even if you had prior experiences with interventions, Cali’s intervention course builds confidence and a better  foundation for successful interventions.”

Kevin Schaefer, Milwaukee  WI

“Although I have been a Life Coach for many years, the  Recovery Coach Training that I took with you has opened up new avenues of  approach in helping the addicted client.  You covered every aspect of Recovery Coaching from intake, treatment, and daily contact, to life skills and behavioral  modification.  I am grateful for the knowledge you bestowed upon us and the opportunity to learn.”

“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!”  818.877.9892  www.jmmaddictionrecovery.com

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, 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 ”

“ 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.
