What is like to take a class with The Addictions Academy Faculty?

Dr. Cali Estes
Thank you so much for the class. It was informative and a lot of fun. It was an honor learning from someone as successful as yourself, and I will definitely be signing up for more courses as I can afford them! I wish you all the best and much baklava!

Hello Dr. Estes,
Not sure if you remember me, but I took your interventionist class a while back and have been using my certification successfully for a couple of months now!
I have my BS in counseling with an emphasis on addictions and substance abuse and am looking at starting my graduate work to obtain an MSW and eventually my LCSW, but in the meantime, I am looking at more certs from your group.
Thanks so much for taking the time to respond, and thanks again for the NCIP class, it’s been great!
Respectfully,

Hi Cali,
Thank you for the valuable training today. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while with you.

Stephen Sundquist, ALL IN RECOVERY SOLUTIONS

Dr. Cali Estes is an incredibly knowledgeable and resourceful woman that can get any job done. Her straightforward approach gets directly to the problem at hand and addresses it head-on quickly and effectively. Cali’s knowledge and modalities in the field of addiction are endless. She has a multi-facet all-encompassing approach to her coaching style that can cater to anyone or any type of addiction. She also has an incredible school for teaching others what she knows. I have attended many of her Addictions academy courses and I was blown away by the amount of information she had available on each subject. She carefully went over every aspect of the given certification and gave us every tool possible to become successful in that field. Her classes have been the best course certification classes I’ve ever taken thus far. It was the best decision I ever made in my career to give me the tools and resources I needed to be successful. Not only did she teach me, but afterward she hired me to take on clients in my local area, mentoring me every step of the way. I couldn’t have learned from a better mentor and modeled a more knowledgeable addictions specialist. I am so thankful for everything I’ve learned from Dr. Cali Estes. I couldn’t recommend anyone as a person, coach, teacher, or mentor more highly then I do Dr. Cali. She has changed my life for the best and I’ll always be grateful for everything that she has done for me.

Cali Estes, her mentoring style and professional training are a major component to the success of my thriving coaching practice. I have been working with Cali since 2015 and I honestly refer her programs at The Addictions Academy to anyone that asks me how they can get started in the business. In fact, I send coaches to train with Cali and her team before they can be considered as a potential coach within my practice. If you would like a personal review or more information about what to expect feel free to contact me directly at (805)710-2513.

Cali Estes is a dynamic, informed, and energetic instructor who knows her stuff. Rarely am I engaged by a speaker or instructor, but Cali had me sitting on the edge of my seat for two full days of recovery coach training. I also took 26 pages of notes! The class was interactive, included homework, and created a community of individuals previously not connected. Thank you Cali for setting the bar for industry-specific training!

Why Choose The Addictions Academy?

Why Choose The Addictions Academy?

 

The Addictions Academy

What makes The Addictions Academy training different from other training schools and accreditation bodies? Dr. Cali Estes has spearheaded this program since 2013 and has made sure to offer the top classes with the top instructors worldwide. Dr. Cali is an exclusive provider of the OUD education for the state of Nebraska, addiction counseling education provider for the state of Florida, and an addiction counseling and education provider core course for the entire country of Canada. The Addictions Academy holds full accreditation from all providers and bodies, including CACCF (Canadian Board), Florida Certification Board, State of Nebraska, ICF (International Coach Federation), IC&RC (International Addiction Education), ACTPO (Accreditation for coaching schools Internationally), ACT (Christian education accreditation) and more. See Accreditation HERE

In the United States alone there is no governing body, federal or state for intervention training or professional recovery coaching certification. Dr. Cali and several colleagues have been pushing for years to get some standardization of training that is governmentally required. At this time there, is no governmental body that requires a credential for intervention or professional recovery coach training. While the Pennsylvania Certification Board may offer a credential in Intervention, they are a private nonprofit with no state or federal affiliation. They are nothing more than a group to join. Our NCIP, Nationally Certified Intervention Professional accreditation, actually came out a year prior to them releasing the CIP and we have been offering the NCIP since then. We have trained over 15,000 interventionalists, professional, and addictions counselor’s to date. We pride ourselves on the ethics and work environment we create for our students and our staff.

Simply put, The Addictions Academy offers the best International Intervention Professional Certification at 35 hours or 54 hours for the money. We include 10 weeks of supervision in most of our classes, FREE directory listing, access to a job board, two networking groups, and two affiliate ways to make extra income. We also have the only addiction neurotransmitter product on the market, Pro RecoveryRx and you can find that HERE

Some of the other companies have tried to imitate us, a few even took our classes, and then turned around to teach that class. We have also trained 350 top addiction treatment centers and mental health institutions in the United States, Canada, the UK, Costa Rica, India, Venezuela, and more. We are pleased to be exclusive providers to certain countries and certain treatment centers with ongoing addiction training for their staff. If you are looking for the Top addiction training education school and you want the best resources please contact The Addictions Academy.

Here are some extra things we all know that our competitors have never provided. We offer 10 weeks of coaching or Intervention Mentorship with a seasoned and master coach or interventionist, a free 30 day listing in our directory to pick up private clients. We also offer a job board for job placement, two affiliate links for you to make extra money. One of those includes the Pro RecoveryRx signature product line program that helps restore the neurotransmitter imbalances in the brain from using drugs and alcohol that our clients have been experiencing. We pleased to provide work and hiring opportunities for the top 1% of our students upon graduation. You can see our reviews here. You can find our classes here. If you want to see more on our founder who has been on CNN, CBS, ABC, Fox, HBO, NBC, KTLA, People magazine, Dr. Drew show, and more. You can find more about Dr. Cali Estes here. We look forward to having you as a student and potentially hiring you to offer addiction recovery coach services, sober companion services, and intervention services to our clientele population.

Why are clients constantly not engaged in clinical addiction treatment settings and what can you do to stop them from leaving?

Why are clients constantly not engaged in clinical addiction treatment settings and what can you do to stop them from leaving?

addiction treatment

As an addiction treatment center owner or marketing professional you get tired of all the work you do to get the clients into an addiction treatment And then they leave a few days into treatment or before treatment is finished. The problem with this is compounded. First, as a treatment center that accepts insurance this affects your insurance rate, the higher the AMA/APA rate the worse your insurance premiums and reimbursements will be. Second, this affects the clients currently in treatment and when one client leaves treatment against medical advice multiple clients will leave with them. This makes your AMA/APA rate worse and causes a lot of undue stress for your addictions counselors and addiction staff.

Third, when a client decides to leave against medical advice everyone is needed to triage that client. This causes mass chaos within the addiction treatment facility and it causes your staff to be pulled in multiple directions while other clients are not given the proper services. In addition your staff can get compassion fatigue and burn out with constantly dealing with negativity of one or multiple clients leaving. A lot of the AMA APAs occur on a Friday night or Saturday or Sunday when you do not have a primary staff on duty and you have the weekend staff or the BT team. Clients generally will try to do more things they should not be doing like smoking, shopping, gambling, having sex etc. on the weekends because you’re generally have less staff and you have staff that is spread thin. In addition, usually do not have multiple addictions counselors available to triage an AMA/APA or create an AMA block.

The addictions Academy developed the only AMA/APA block training class for all of your staff that is effective. Most of our Addictions treatment centers that have taken the AMA/APA block class have reported a 30% decrease in AMA and APA is within the first 30 days. Our class is available for your entire staff which we recommend you train or individually online at a self study online video series. Below you will find a professional value of our training and you can call for group discount at 1-800-706-0318 extension 2.  You can also check out our website at www.theaddictionscademy.com

AMA/APA

Did you know that The Addictions Academy is the largest online provider of addiction education in the world? We specialize in online classes such as addiction counseling, recovery coaching, intervention professional training, and more. We are pleased to offer our training to addiction treatment centers and Mental Health Institutions looking to increase their service platform and assist clients in receiving the best services possible. One of our most popular classes is AMA/APA blocking and this class assists counselors, techs, and other professionals in stopping clientele from leaving early. AMA/APA blocking (leaving Against Medical Advice, leaving Against Professional Advice) is a critical class that all addiction treatment providers need to have for all staff to reduce clients leaving early from treatment.

If you were looking to increase your retention rate of clients, increase your statistics to help your insurance premium rates and create an overall beneficial experience for your clients this class is a must for your staff. This five hour training can be completed either live online with an instructor or you can have your staff watch the video series which is a five-hour in-depth training. We offer it per student if you watch the video series or one flat rate to train the entire staff live online. We also can come directly to your facility and offer the class live or we can broadcast it if you have multiple locations. Every treatment center that has participated in this training has seen a reduction in AMA/APA with about 30% in the first two weeks. Our training is unparalleled and unduplicated. Click HERE to see the training.

After 20+ years in the industry, Dr Cali Estes created this training specifically to address the need within treatment centers that has not been handled. Click HERE to read her bio and click HERE to see our student and addiction treatment center reviews. Losing clients consistently when you own an addiction treatment center or a mental health facility can be detrimental to your bottom line. Check out the training below and give us a call so we can get you started right away retaining clients, and helping clients become more successful by completing your program. Every successful client to complete your program is worth 3 to 10 referrals. Every client that you lose due to an AMA or APA is worth 40 negative reviews. Can your company withstand 40 negative reviews or lose any more revenue than it already has?

Certified Addictions Counselor or Certified Addictions Recovery Coach? How to Choose?

How to determine if I want to be a Certified Addictions Counselor or a Certified Addictions Recovery Coach. Read on, then decide.

 

addictions counselor

When it comes to choosing a career path and helping others, the biggest decision a lot of people have to make is, do they want to be a Nationally Certified Recovery Coach (NCRCII) or a state or country Certified Addictions Counselor (CAC or CAP). These are two very different job descriptions, pay rates, and they each come with rules and regulations. An addictions counselor training program runs between 270 and 350 hours. After you complete the hours, you have to also complete a hands-on training program within an approved mental health or addictions treatment facility. Once you complete the hands-on training and pass all the hours of education then you can sit for your state, country, or providence exam. The Addictions Academy is proud to offer the 350 hours that you need for training completely 100% online and at a go-with-your-own pace and your own leisure plan. This training is accredited by the State of Florida, the entire Country of Canada, and several other accreditation bodies including the ICADC. Most states will accept The Addictions Academy’s addiction counselor 350-hour online training and once you have completed all nine domains which include all nine courses, you can then sit for their exam to become either licensed or certified in your respective state. Once you become a certified addictions counselor, you can work for an addictions treatment facility or a mental health facility and you will be able to accept insurance through them. You can also go into private practice and offer addictions counseling to individual clients. We even have a marketing program that will show you how to become an addictions counselor and help a lot of people and also make it a lucrative career at the same time. Click HERE to see the course offerings. Use CODE: SAVE999CAP to get HALF Off the training. Expires Oct 15, 2020.

Our other training, the Nationally Certified Recovery Coach level I and level II is a very different class. This is a 36 hour training program that contains level one, level two, ethics, and 10 weeks of Coach Mentorship. Level one contains life skills, coping skills, defense mechanisms, and how to be a coach as required by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) with the 11 core competencies of coaching. We are accredited with them for CCE. After you complete level one, either by video self-study or online virtual classroom or even live in person, you will complete the level two which contains the DSM-V and all mental health issues and drugs that are prescribed for mental health. We have also included an ethics class that is a six-hour self-study that comes with this platform AND 10 weeks of coaching Mentorship by master coaches that have between 5 and 30 years of experience in the industry of addiction treatment and addiction coaching. This class is accredited and available in 25 to different countries. Click HERE to see the class offerings and use code AC-250-off and expires on October 15, 2020.

Both classes and both career paths are very different. Addictions Counselors make between $28,000 and $60,000 per year depending on where you are located. Certified Recovery Coaches make between $75,000 and $150,000 per year in private practice. Addiction treatment centers will hire both career paths depending on what you would prefer to do. Counselors are required to follow all state requirements and work within a specific jurisdiction, whereas coaches can be more mobile and work easier by phone and Skype. The next recovery coach class coming up is October 8 and 9th.

States Slash the Addiction Budget, While Overdoses Rise. See our Answer to this!

 


addiction, recovery coach, The Addictions Academy

States slash addiction budgets as overdoses and mental health skyrocket. That means free and low-cost services will be a thing of the past. Treatment centers can operate at a 20% fill rate, which means jobs are lost and fewer clients per facility. Those that lost jobs have no insurance and can not pay for the treatment with insurance anymore. That means that qualified and trained mental health and addiction service providers are in-demand. That means that cash pay services will go up and recovery coaches, interventionists and counselors in the field need to be ready to accept clients.

But we have a shortage of qualified, educated and trained individuals. If you are ready to combat the COVID 19 pandemic and utilize your time while in lockdown to help more people and create a nice income for yourself, we at The Addictions Academy are ready to help you succeed. The Addictions Academy is the industry’s top school and training entity who offers training and certifications both in person or through our state of the art virtual classroom settings. Most of us are in “lockdown” mode, curfews, or some type of social restrictions during the COVID 19 pandemic, so this would be the perfect time to enroll in one of The Addictions Academy’s online virtual certification classes. I would also like to mention that Covid-19 has caused a major spike in drug use and addiction in general and, with this being said, there is a high-demand for top nationally certified professional recovery coaches.

YOU are the answer! 

Like I mentioned before, The Addictions Academy has a reputation of turning out and certifying the industry’s best professional recovery coaches and also offers job placement to qualified students. We have now trained over 15,000 individuals in 25 countries and we are translated into 5 languages. Over 350 addiction treatment centers have hired us to train their staff and credential them.

The next virtual online class offered by The Addictions Academy is Nationally Certified Recovery Coaching Level I. This is both an entry-level recovery coaching certification or a way for existing professional recovery coaches to also sharpen their skills. This class is being held July 23-24 from 10-3 EDT. Nationally Certified Recovery Coaching can be taken from the comfort and safety of your own home or office for the low price of $1329. This price also includes our Best Selling Work Book, all credentials and certifications, job placement for qualified students, AND a complimentary class, Recovery Coach II. This is an offer you just can’t refuse while we are restricted to our homes and offices. There is no better way to capitalize on this extra time at home than to sharpen your skills in the addictions industry and become one of the industry’s top nationally certified professional recovery coaches! Register for all of our classes at http://www.theaddictionsacademy.com or by calling 1-800-706-0318 ext 2. Contact us today to reserve your seat for Nationally Certified Recovery Coaching Level 1 on July 23-24.
