EP 003: Cali Estes, The Addictions Coach talks FBI, addiction recovery coaching and strategies that get results

Dr. Cali Estes and I discuss her short term “career” as an FBI agent and how that lead her to her passion helping addicts in recovery.

We also focus on what is working today versus older approaches which may not be as effective in our current world environment.

Cali and her coaching utilizes many “alternative” techniques to reduce cravings and move people along a recovery path without more drugs. She feels that doctors today are over-prescribing medications for far too many ailments which leads to more addictions and problems.

She really helps people who are ready to commit to change their lives find a life plan that works for them. By utilizing accountability and goal-setting, she sees her clients succeed more rapidly and more reliably.

We also touch on how important it is to also create some accountability from the rest of the family and also help the family adjust their expectations around their loved one’s recovery.

Cali also explains her amazing results from a new way to deal with Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (including special certification and training for professionals) and her new kick-ass, Rock Box music-therapy program.

We also talk about the increasing importance of health, fitness, meditation and more. I also get her to spill the beans about her new, upcoming book. Listen in!
