The Addictions Academy Reviews and  Dr.  Cali Estes Reviews of Opiate Use Disorder Training for the state of Nebraska


Cali, Your presentation style was captivating as well as content-rich. The five hours seemed very daunting at 8:45 a.m. when it finally registered on me that the training was that long. Five hours went by so quickly, I could have listened to a couple of hours more.  I really enjoyed it. I will ask Lindsey to invite me to any other presentations or training sessions, you host.

My name is Terrill Jacobsen and I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your presentation today and how insightful I found it. I am a Family Peer Support Specialist for Families CARE In Kearney But have no self-experience with addictions of my own.  I identify very strongly with your story and am a spouse to a recovering long term Addict, I applaud you for sharing your story with all of us. I have often struggled to understand the whys and what for of my Husband addictions and it had led me to a place of self-doubt and struggle. The “sugar with holding” example is the best I have ever heard and goes a long way to describing what they go through in daily life. I am very interested in your Book and would love to have a copy, please let me know how I can obtain one? I think sharing this with the families I peer support would be such a great tool. So many are truly crushed when they find out about a loved one’s addiction and they feel so alone. Thank you so very much for sharing your wisdom and amazing knowledge!

Hi Cali,

That was an excellent OUD training today.  Thanks so much for all of the information you shared and for the work you do to help educate, treat, prevent and support recovery.  I would be interested in the book you referenced as well as more information on the supplement kits you offer, if possible.

Before I began my position with the state, I started the only Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL’s) support group here in Nebraska almost 3 years ago.  I would love to be able to share more information about the different support and education you offer for consumers and their loved ones as appropriate and also with the group of folks I work with directly.

Have a great week Cali.
