As a Professional Athlete your Needs are Unique.

Cali Estes, The Addictions Coach is NFL Sober Coach

Its that time of the year again where there is a 4 week ‘free’ window in the NFL and the players get to have some freedom. This is the time period when they get into trouble, crash cars, get DUI’s, get arrested, sneak guns into a nightclub and maybe even get arrested for sexual misconduct. This can be avoided by using an anger management or drug and alcohol sober coach.

At The Addictions Coach our specialty is assisting Professional Football Players when partying gets out of hand or anger management issues cause them to lose focus or get arrested. From Sober Companion Services to Recovery Coaching Services to Addiction Therapy, we can handle it all for the Professional Sports Player. We offer gambling addiction coaching, drug and alcohol addiction coaching, sex addiction coaching, Anger Management Coaching, and we offer it on the playing field, off the field, at home and also while the professional football player is traveling.

As a professional athlete your needs are unique.

You need your head in the game both on and off the field. You need to make sure your image is clean and untainted in the papers or you risk getting cut from the team. You read the paper and see the news of all the professional athletes that are arrested for drugs, alcohol, steroids, hiring prostitutes, gambling and of course excessive partying. You watch as other Professional Football Players get cut from the team, dropped from their sponsorships, divorced and smeared in the headlines. They are using both legal and illegal drugs, taking guns into nightclubs, having affairs, getting involved in domestic violence issues and of course gambling their paychecks away. Some professional football players may retire early to avoid the embarrassment, some end up in jail, some broke living with their parents and of course, some end up dead. Don’t let that be YOU. With all the hard work and dedication you have put into professional football, don’t throw it all away for drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling and guns. Hire us before you make the decision to do something you regret. We are your Addiction Coaches. We come to you, on the field and off.

Ray Rice KO’d His Fiancee’ in an Elevator!
Ray Rice….drug and alcohol fueled rage, anger management issues or the ‘Chris Brown‘ syndrome?   When is it OK for a football player or celeb to hit his wife or girlfriend? AND then drag her out of the elevator?   Where is the counseling and coaching for these sports teams? It appears the staff at the Baltimore Ravens need to step up their game and teach their players some better manors and coping skills.  See for yourself.

Anger Management Needed In Sports?

 Anger Management Needed In sports?
Anger management needed in sports?

Marcus Smart of Oklahoma State shoved a Texas Tech fan during a game, thus fueling the debate on whether Anger Management is needed in sports.  Society has dubbed him a ‘thug’ along with Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks for his recent outburst during a sporting game.  When it comes to testosterone and sporting events, you have the players all amped up trying to win the game and fans and other players taunting and harassing the player.  The question is, do the players need Anger Management Training?  Is the case that Anger Management training needs to be given to the coaches, the personal trainers and the handlers of the athletes?  Or do we simply suspend them — like a 5 year old standing in the corner for mouthing off to Mommy? See  facts below.

Will 3 More Months Of Rehab Make A Difference For Chris Brown?

Just when you thought Chris Brown was out…a judge is sending him back in.

Agreeing with the recommendation of the probation department, L.A. Superior Court Judge James Brandlin ordered the singer to spend another three months in a residential treatment facility, submit to drug testing and take medication as prescribed by his doctor.

Brown is also required to complete 24 hours of community service a week during the course of his time in rehab.

His latest round of penance still stems from his 2009 assault conviction for beating up Rihanna. He was sentenced to five years’ probation at the time and has been in and out of court over the past year while authorities investigated various possible violations.

According to the probation department’s latest report, on Nov. 10 Brown was kicked out of the Malibu treatment facility he checked into last month after he angrily threw a rock through his mother’s car window when she came to visit.

On Nov. 13, Brown told authorities that he suffered a “setback, mentally and emotionally, when he was not credited for all the community service hours he initially completed. He had issues with his attention deficit disorder and underwent a period of depression.”

Brown, who was told to check back into rehab today, did not object to Brandlin’s conditions.

He is not allowed to leave the state of California except to appear before a judge in Washington, D.C, this Monday on a misdemeanor assault charge—the incident that seemed to prompt his decision to voluntarily check into rehab for anger management last month.

“His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point,” said Brown’s rep after the Grammy winner was accused of breaking a guy’s nose in the U.S. capital after the man tried to photobomb Brown and some female fans.
