What is Addictions Call Center Training?

What is Addictions Call Center Training?

Do you know what role the call center plays in an addiction-related facility? If so, is your call center operating at the top of its ability? Let’s answer these questions and clarify whether or not your call center is where it needs to be in the everyday operation of your addictions related facility and/or business. Let’s start off by saying that your call center is the “voice” and because of this, it is somewhat the “identity” of your business. When struggling addicts are at their lowest and most vulnerable in life, they pick up the phone DESPERATE for the voice on the other end of the phone to be a “lifeline” so to speak. These struggling addicts are counting on the voice on the other end to be compassionate, but stern, in what directions they may give telling the addict what step to take next when it comes to their recovery.
Now, there is so much more to a recovery based call center than just recovering addicts calling in for help. Your call center staff must be customer friendly and cooperate friendly when it comes to products being sold that may be of use to your facility or when it comes to possible future business partners or business propositions that may address you and your facility in order to possibly do future business with you. So when you take all of these factors into consideration, you quickly realize that not only is your call center your “voice” or “identity” of your facility but its also the FIRST IMPRESSION that possible clients, business partners or business propositions will ever get of you and your product or facility. For this reason, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that your call center is operating at the top of its ability. So where can you get the best call center training in the addictions industry today? You can get this call center training through The Addictions Academy. Dr. Cali Estes, founder, and creator of The Addictions Academy has personally been asked to come into many top-level addiction-related rehabilitation facilities and completely revamp and overhaul their call center and call center staff only to see these facilities thrive after her help.
Because of this success, Dr. Estes decided to develop a Call Center Training program where she comes to your facility and evaluates and revamps your call center if needed. Remember, your call center is basically the “first impression” that your product and/or facility will give anyone wanting to connect and/or do business with you, your product or your facility.

How do I become a food addiction coach?

First, let’s take a moment to explain food addiction and who it affects.  Overeating and using food to cope with everyday problems is finally being seriously recognized as an addiction. We have long acknowledged that overeating and other food concerns have caused health issues in our country but it seems as though we are finally ready to classify certain food issues as an addiction.

Just like drugs, sex, alcohol, and gambling (to name a few) food is used to cope with uncomfortable life issues and it is used to hide or mask pain that we might be going through in life. So how do you become a nationally certified food addictions coach? Let me tell you how! You contact the LEADER in all national addictions certifications and that would be The Addictions Academy.

What does a family recovery coach do?

What does a family recovery coach do?

What role does a family play in our recovery? Better yet, can our family and family members contribute to our addiction and possible relapse? We will give you the answers to the following questions over the next few minutes, but lets first look into what exactly a family recovery coach does. First off let me state this, as much as the addict needs a recovery coach, so does the family! Many times the family has “stuck its head” in the sand,  much like an ostrich, to enable the addict all the while “not rocking the boat” in the everyday family dynamic.

Addicts throw tantrums when they don’t get what they want. Addicts steal when they don’t get what they want and addicts lie to get what they want. Family members of addicts are notorious for “turning a blind eye” when these actions occur or giving the addict the idea that it’s OK to act in this manner to get what they want. People this is called ENABLING and it is extremely detrimental to the addicts recovery and well being.

Most of the time family members want the addict’s behavior to change while having absolutely no idea that the family’s behavior is a major contributor to the addict’s drug use. So remember this, addiction is an extremely complicated issue and recovery is even more complicated! It takes an equal amount of knowledge and cooperation from the recovering addict and everyone surrounding the recovering addict.

Addicts in recovery have a much greater success rate when their family enters into some type of family recovery. So where does one learn the skills and gain the knowledge to become a top Nationally Certified Family Recovery Coach?  Dr.Cali Estes and The Addictions Academy has the best Family Recovery Coaching certification in the addictions industry today.

The Addictions Academy is in 23 countries and has certified thousands of the world’s best coaches who are rewriting the success rates in the recovery community. Please take a moment and head over to https://theaddictionsacademy.com to sign up for our live virtual classroom course or get certified at your own pace with our self-study program.

Either way, you will leave with a National certification giving you the skills and knowledge to change the lives of many.

What does a sober companion do?

What does a sober companion do?

Maybe the easier question would be what doesn’t a sober companion do. Are you interested in a career as a sober companion? The addictions industry is changing and it’s changing rather drastically. The days of checking into a traditional twelve-step residential facility and putting your entire life on hold are coming to an end. Think about it like this. The bills don’t care that you have an addiction problem and they sure aren’t going to stop coming because you need rehab. The local grocery store isn’t going to donate free food to you and your children while you fight off the demons of addiction. And the bank isn’t going to let the mortgage “slide” for three or four months while you kick heroin!

What is social media addiction?

What is social media addiction?

Can people really be addicted to technology like their cell phones, laptops and Playstations/XBOX? Can this really be an addiction? Can this really be as destructive as alcohol, heroin, and cocaine? Well, this may surprise you but the answer is definitely YES! Maybe you yourself could possibly have signs and symptoms that you are spending too much time with your phone checking your Facebook account. Maybe you are familiar with the more intense symptoms like those that create and live an entire fake life through Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Social media addiction has gotten so obvious that restaurants are now putting a small box at the center of tables and encouraging customers to place their phones into the box while eating to also encourage customers to engage with each other and enjoy the dining experience instead of burying their heads into their phone screen to see who “liked” their latest post on Facebook.
Other more serious signs of social media addiction are happening among teens and the younger generation. These young social media addicts are isolating themselves and are becoming harder to interact with on a daily basis. Here is an example, have you noticed that the younger generation of social media addicts will only correspond by text when using the phone? They seldom pick up the phone and talk. It’s usually always through a text. Some may say this is from convenience but I say it is from losing their social skills due to too much time in social media fantasy land.
Don’t get me wrong, social media addiction isn’t just for the younger generation, older adults are getting sucked into social media addiction as well by Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter. In addition to work expecting the adult to always be checking their email and tending to work business. Adults are isolating themselves much like the younger generation. So, just like any other addiction, there is help out there for those whose lives are being negatively affected by social media addiction. The Addictions Coach has a program to help you manage your social media in a healthy manner.
The Addictions Coach offers social media and technology addiction services and if you want to be a social media or technology addiction coach, The Addictions Academy offers classes. We have the class available through our live interactive virtual classroom. You can also call us at 1-800-706-0318 and as always, please head over to our testimonial page and hear from the hundreds of people who have been helped by The Addictions Coach and The Addictions Academy!

What is a top interventionist?

What is a top interventionist?

In the addictions industry and recovery community, a certified top interventionist is one of the most important parts or piece to any program where addiction recovery is a MUST. The top interventionist is on the front lines and is the first person most recovering addicts see and have interaction with at the beginning stages of their recovery. There are basically two types of people that end up in an addiction based recovery program and that is those who come to their senses by themselves and realize that this deadly cycle of addiction is killing them and ruining their lives.
Then there is the second group of people. This group of people usually feel like they have everything under control and that their addiction is hurting no one, including themselves! Usually, this group of people has family, friends and loved ones who have had enough of their loved one killing themselves and tearing their family and relationships to shreds and these family members and loved ones initiate an intervention. This is where the family and loved ones bring a certified top interventionist into the picture to show the addict what they are doing to themselves and losing by abusing drugs and/or alcohol. The certified top interventionist also gives the addict a list of ultimatums that the family or loved ones have listed. These ultimatums usually consist of the addict getting help for their addiction or being cut off from all family functions, relationships, and financial help.
 So as you can see, the certified top interventionist is the one who has the skills, tools, and knowledge to convince the addict, on the family’s behalf, to get help OR ELSE. This usually is always a life or death decision by the addict. Just today the news stated the $15 million dollars worth of fentanyl was seized by US Customs in Texas. If that is not enough to scare you straight I don’t know what is! My point is the certified top interventionist and his or her skills are the only safety net between the addict and that $15 million worth of deadly fentanyl that is flooding the US.
So do you have a need to help people rebuild their shattered lives? Do you want to save lives and make a difference in someone’s recovery? If so, The Addictions Academy has the best Nationally Certified Interventionist Program and Advanced Nationally Certified Interventionist Program in the industry today! Our certified top interventionist is convincing those who are dancing on deaths doorstep to get help on a regular basis. Our program gives you the skills to be demanding, yet be compassionate and understanding, all the while convincing the addict to seek help.
So if you belong on the FRONT LINES of addiction then head over to https://theaddictionsacademy.com to get a listing of our in-person live classes or a listing of our live interactive virtual classroom settings. Yes, you can get certified from the comfort of your own home! Also, feel free to call us at 1-800-706-0318 and as always, head over to our website and its testimonial page to hear from the hundreds of those who have used the Addictions Academy to further their career and open up a whole new life helping others.

What is a sober companion?

What is a sober companion?

If you are not familiar with the term “sober companion” and you are in the addictions industry or part of the recovery community then I highly suggest that you take a moment and listen as we discuss the true meaning of a sober companion. Long gone are the days of giving up your entire livelihood and personal lives to check yourselves into a 12 step residential rehabilitation facility to be guarded against all true life obstacles and pampered during the duration of your stay only to be released to real-life situations with no protection and no guidance. This is a true recipe for a relapse!
In today’s addictions industry and recovery communities, we are seeing soaring success rates for those struggling addict‘s who are choosing to hire nationally certified sober companions. So again you may ask what is a sober companion? A nationally certified sober companion is a skilled sober coach who comes to you instead of you coming to them. The nationally certified sober companion will infiltrate himself or herself into your everyday life alongside you to help you work through minute by minute, hour by hour and day by day issues and problems that may become triggers that cause you to relapse.
Having a nationally certified sober companion allows you the freedom to continue working, continue providing for your family both financially and emotionally and moving on with your everyday life without losing everything in an attempt to get sober. Be sober companion can stay with you 24 hours a day seven days a week until the sober companion feels you are ready to walk alone during your battle with addiction. Sober companions will accompany you to meetings and sober functions and they will accompany you during some of your favorite hobbies. Sober companions can also accompany you on vacations, cruises, or business trips. One of the True reasons that sober companionship is so successful is that the client, or the struggling addict, must remain accountable to himself or herself and the sober companion 24 hours a day seven days a week!
The Addictions Academy offers a new class called Nationally Certified Sober Companion and their sister company, The Addiction Coach offers sober companions for hire.

How is recovery coaching different from addiction treatment?

How is recovery coaching different from addiction treatment?

Are you stuck in a dead end job? Have you hit your ceiling in both pay scales and advancement opportunities? Do you have the need to help others and motivate struggling addicts to change their lives? If so, becoming a nationally certified recovery coach is the new career choice for you! The days of 12 step inpatient rehabilitation facilities are coming to an end as the new age certified recovery coach is quickly becoming the treatment option of choice for the addictions into street and recovery communities.

What is the major difference between inpatient rehabilitation and recovery coaching? Well, The first major difference would be the fact that recovery coaches come to the client and immerse themselves in the client’s everyday lives, triumphs and struggles to give the recovery process the most like real life action as it can possibly be. The success rate for recovery coaching is extremely high and this is due to the fact that traditional 12 steps based recovery shields the struggling drug addict from most real-life scenarios while they are embedded in the safety of a residential rehab facility.

The recovery coach comes to the client and deals with the drug addicts personal and professional struggles right along with them on an hour to an hour, day to day and week to week basis. The Addictions Academy offers the largest and most successful recovery coaching training program in the addictions industry today and their sister program, The Addictions Coach have sent recovery coaches to the clients in such life surroundings as movie sets, professional sporting events, family cruises and everyday struggles in the Rocky Mountains! There is no personal life structure or professional career structure that a certified and trained recovery coach cannot handle.

Get the top training and education today. Learn to offer services that inpatient treatment is not able to and get better results in the aftercare process.
