Dallas Cowboys get a New Coach, but not for Football; Jerry Jones Hires a Life Coach for Players!
Excerpt from below article:
Well, it has happened ladies and gentlemen.
One of the most successful team owners in the National Football League and, quite honestly, one of the most successful human beings on the planet has just found it necessary to hire a professional life coach to take on the role of assistant head coach of the world-famous Dallas Cowboys. Now, there have been plenty of teams that have brought on professional coaches to help players deal with off the field situations that may affect their careers in a negative manner, but this is the first time that a league owner has specifically hired a professional life coach in an attempt to make their players more accountable, pay closer attention to detail and learn to function as a team instead of chasing individual goals. Does “setting goals”, “paying close attention to detail” and “accepting responsibility” sound familiar? Well, it should. These are some of the main characteristics that a top certified professional life coach preaches and teaches along the route to becoming a top nationally certified professional life coach.

In the addictions industry today there are quite a few different addiction education providers. Everyone claims to be an expert and everyone claims to offer the best education for the best price. So when we are trying to pick our addiction education provider we need to really peel back the layers of the program or school and really see what the program has to offer us that sets them apart from all other addiction education providers.
So let’s take The Addictions Academy under the microscope for a few moments and talk about how they separate their addiction education program from all others by taking that extra step in many categories. This puts you in the best spot to succeed after you have received your credentials and certifications.
First of all let’s talk about the wide range and wide variety of the classes you can take at The Addictions Academy. At The Addictions Academy they have over 30 different classes you can take to better yourself in the addictions industry or get yourself into the addictions industry, if you’re not already working in it. Nationally Certified Sober Coaching, Nationally Certified Intervention Professional, sex addiction, gambling addiction and even social media addiction and internet addiction coaching, just names a few of the recovery-related coaching certification programs that The Addictions Academy offers.
The next way that The Addictions Academy separates itself from other addictions education providers is that their certifications are excepted and acknowledged internationally. After becoming certified through The Addictions Academy,it will open the door for you to expand your business throughout the world internationally and work with clients outside of the United States.
The next category has become a hot topic with business people all over the world and that is forming your own brand and attacking the industry with top-level marketing. Here at The Addictions Academy, we teach you how to skillfully brand yourself and company and we also teach you how to stay one step ahead of your competition with new modern state of the art marketing techniques. You will quickly become a top nationally certified professional recovery coach, top nationally certified interventionist or a top nationally certified sober coach, to name a few, once you finish your education with The Addictions Academy and enter into the work force of the addictions industry. Our competition leaves you high and dry once your education is finished, but not at The Addictions Academy.
And last but not least, we really put our money where our mouth is here at The Addictions Academy by offering you the option to learn how to make “six figures in six months”! This almost sounds too good to be true as any one of us would jump at the chance to gain the skills and knowledge to be able to make a six figure income in just six short months. Yes, it can be done, and all you have to do is give The Addictions Academy the opportunity to lead the way! So what are you waiting for?

Why is food addiction so difficult to overcome? Is it harder to overcome than a cocaine or heroin addiction? MAYBE. Click the link to find out as Dr. Cali Estes is interviewed on her expertise in food and other addictions
Food addiction: Why addictions to certain foods can be so difficult to overcome
Addiction therapist breaks down cause, effect of food addictions
We need food to survive, but certain foods — especially those rich in sugar, fat and salt — can trigger chemicals in the brain that make us feel good, such as dopamine. When you feel that, it can make you want to eat those foods again.
The health portion of my life was more about having a stack of Oreo cookies with a glass of milk at 10 o’clock at night while I’m watching TV in bed,” said Don Prince, who struggled with food addiction. “I’d justify the cookies and say, ‘Well, I do like Oreos.’ Or I’d eat oatmeal cookies because they had raisins in them because, ‘That’s got to be healthier than the Oreos or the chocolate chips.’”
Dr. Cali Estes, PhD, an addiction therapist, said there is research-based evidence that suggests foods high in sugar, fat and salt can trigger the pleasure sensors in the brain, creating feelings of pleasure and satisfaction.
“At 10 o’clock at night, when you’re bored, you stick your hand in the bag of Oreos, and that’s when food addiction occurs,” Estes said.
Like drugs and alcohol, food can be used to suppress emotions, Estes said.
“It’s a numbing out effect,” Estes said. “It’s a short window while you’re eating it or thinking about it, but it’s enough serotonin, dopamine to make you happy for a short period.”
When that high is going, Estes said people can go through stages of withdrawal, starting with irritability and fatigue and eventually lead to insomnia, headaches and restless legs.
“All the same symptoms of heroin on a lesser level,” Estes said.

One client’s story: I got a call 4am in the morning from a young lady that her 19-year-old brother was in a paranoid schizophrenic state and he was planning to kill himself and he was worried that people were following him. I picked up the kid In Staten Island and he was in a complete drug induced psychosis. He thought he was being followed by gang members and the FBI. I found out later he smoked an eight ball of crack cocaine. I brought him to Hackettstown, NJ to his mother’s house, where I had hoped he would snap out of his psychotic state. I spent 12 hours with him trying to see if it would go back to normal with no success. I quickly started calling up facilities and no place would take him on a Saturday morning in his mental state. I found a psych ward that would take him, but I had to convince him to trust me and come with me. He thought he was a rocket scientist, Russian mafia, a professional skateboarder, and a tattoo artist. He was trying to call his friends who were also in a gang with him to come get him. I convinced him that his phone was tapped so he took his SIM card out of his phone and snapped it in half. I got him into the place, and they committed him. His father, mother and sister don’t live together, and he was playing each of them against themselves. So, I coached the family separately and together and got them to stop enabling him. When he got out, I flew with him to a rehab facility in Florida where he got clean. Now I’m coaching him in Florida, where he lives with his sister and he’s doing amazing. He hasn’t touched a drug or alcohol since he was released. He got a managerial position job in Walmart and he’s going to church. He’s working out, eating healthier and, for the first time in his crime filled life, he’s actually happy and doing the right thing. The family and him are super grateful for what I did while working with them and I believe I saved his life. This was one of my favorite client turnarounds.
There are quite a few ways to look at training when it comes to becoming a top nationally certified professional coach in the addictions industry today. You can seek the most skilled and knowledgeable instructors to teach you how to become a professional coach or for those of you already in the addictions industry and recovery community, you can also seek the most skilled and knowledgeable professionals to take your thirst for perfection and continuing education to the highest level, so that you are a top nationally certified professional coach.
Whichever the case may be for you, the professional intervention is one of the most serious and sensitive parts to recovery for the sober coach and the recovering addict. The addictions industry and recovery community are FULL of self-proclaimed professional interventionists who are doing way more damage than they are good. There are so many components to a professional intervention and it IS a matter of life and death for those involved in the intervention.
Let’s face it, the professional drug intervention is the fork in the road, so to speak, for the active drug user. The decision he or she makes to except the professional intervention and seek help for his or her addiction will often dictate whether the addict lives or dies, so it is extremely important that the top nationally certified professional interventionist is as skilled and knowledgeable as possible.
We here at The Addictions Academy, have the nations most skilled instructors and we have the addiction industries most modern state of the art intervention certification course. We will teach you how to mix pure honest emotion, modern addiction technology, skill, and human compassion at the highest level, to make you the best and most complete top nationally certified professional interventionist.
