The Addictions Coach Expands Mobile Rehab to Include Sober Companions and Sober Coaches

Sober Coaches and Companions are the key to staying sober post rehab or treatment and Cali Estes, owner of The Addictions Coach is adding them to the arsenal of defense to combat addictions.

Miami, FL, September 27, 2012 --(PR.com)-- The Addictions Coach announced that they are expanding their services to include not only therapy and mobile drug and alcohol rehabilitation services but also Sober Coaches and Sober Companions. At The Addictions Coach they offer traditional one hour talk therapy sessions, 7 day intensive rehab ‘tune ups’, where they bring the idea of drug treatment direct to the client at the client’s home or location and most recently they are offering Sober Coaches and Sober Companions to stay with the client 24/7 and assist the client in remaining sober and learning new life skills.
Traditional rehab centers offer a 28 day stay followed by therapy, if the client will attend the sessions. What about the other 23 hours in the day? The Addictions Coach has found a solution for that and has sober companions and sober coaches on hand to assist the client in remaining drug and alcohol free in their daily work and life environment.
“Having Cali Estes come into our home for 7 days and help our son learn how to deal with his addiction has been amazing,” Nancy F said. “She was on hand to answer all of our questions, included us in the process, and then also gave us a sober companion that stayed with our son for the next 30 days and assisted him in learning how to function sober in the world. They really changed our perception of how to deal with our son’s behaviors.”
Cali’s multidimensional approach focuses on the underlying cause of the addiction and she approaches each client in an original manner. 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 the client. By realizing that each client is unique and their pattern of addiction is unique with a root cause, Cali is able to address the addiction at the core and assist the addict in making the necessary changes and positive steps in their life.
“I tried three different rehabs in a one year period,” Michael J said. “Each time I left I was smoking crack within 24 hours. I didn’t’ know what to do, so I called Cali and she came over and worked with me, at home. She also sent over a sober companion to stay with me 24/7 and he was amazing. He showed me how to work out and go have fun without crack. It had been so long that I didn’t know how to have fun anymore. I highly recommend them to everyone.”
At The Addictions Coach, they have sober coaches and sober companions from all over the nation that are skilled in assisting clients in learning how to have happy, productive lifestyles free from alcohol and drugs. Both male and female sober coaches and companions are available and most have suffered some form of addiction. All of the sober coaches and sober companions at The Addictions Coach utilize fitness and nutrition as a way to combat stressors and assist the client in remaining sober.
“I wanted to combine my skill in addictions with a full program that actually helps people stay sober,” Cali Estes said. “If a client does not come back to me because they are doing well, then I know that I am doing my job properly and that is our goal here. We are not a one size fits all program or a one top shop. We do not do groups or require that you attend meetings or get a sponsor. What we actually do is help you get sober, stay sober and get through all the issues that are really challenging you in the first place. We remove those and teach you how to handle life stressors without all the drugs and alcohol.”
The Addictions Coach is based out of Miami Florida but services clients in all of South Florida, New York City and Los Angeles.
