Exclusive Interview with The Addictions Coach Cali Estes about Recovery, Addiction, Physical Activity and Marijuana
Every person is different and, therefore, every person’s addiction is different and needs to be treated in a unique way. It’s this philosophy that guides Cali Estes when she helps recovering addicts as The Addictions Coach.
The Addictions Coach company combines yoga, nutrition and fitness, along with traditional talk therapy, all done at a location of their clients’ choosing. Cali has accompanied clients to high risk situations like weddings, worked ‘on set’ of movies and film productions, worked directly with pro athletes, sat in on business meetings, been ‘on tour’ with musicians and has worked directly in the home of clients for a more intensive ‘rehab’ setting.
Unlike traditional rehabilitation centers that convince the addict that they have a disease that is incurable and they must attend meetings, recite prayers and follow steps, Cali tailors her program to fit each client and says every addict needs not just therapy sessions but also a coach.
“People in addiction need to be held accountable for their actions. That is why you will see clients relapse after treatment settings and rehab stays,” Cali says. “They do not have anyone to answer to anymore and go back to their own ways. Rehabs allow people to be ‘in the bubble of safety’ and then dump the client right back in the same environment with minimal therapy. Imagine having a coach to call, text and be present as you go through life. I offer intensive 24/7 services, daily, hourly and then also hourly with unlimited text and email. I instill in the client a sense of being accountable and having help immediately available.”
