Dr. Cali Estes, The Addictions Coach and Founder of The Addictions Academy confirmed they are offering a new Live Advanced Clinical Intervention Training Course and National Certification which will teach how to provide Intervention services for every type of client, not just one specific model or style.
Explaining the need for this course, Estes said, “This is an important course for us. Getting people the help they need early is critical in many cases. And this Advanced Training is held live, not online, for maximum effectiveness and learning.”
The Nationally Certified Advanced Clinical Intervention Course covers both the surprise and invitational models. The course includes an overview of all systems, the pre-qualifying of the client (unique to The Addictions Academy), pre-intervention, intervention, post-intervention.
The Addictions Academy specifically defines body language, when and how to end the intervention, how to read your client (spoken and silent cues), how to use family to your advantage, when to do an Individual versus a Family intervention and more.
For a limited time, The Addictions Academy is offering a special, when anyone signs up with code 250ADV, they receive a $250 discount. Contact The Addictions Academy at (800) 706-0318 ext. 2 for details.
“Our courses include an introduction to the basics of mental health disorders such as Codependency, mood disorders, and other DSM-5 disorders, some problems that you will see when working with families and family members when performing a professional intervention,” Dr. Estes Explained.
She went on, “Our goal is to help you to begin to understand the basic clinical aspects of mental health and commonly seen disorders when working with family members, addicts, alcoholics, and people who suffer from all types of compulsive behaviors.”
The recent advent of the opioid addiction crisis and continued high rates of alcohol abuse are continuing to plague the United States. Nationwide, opioids figured in two-thirds of the 63,632 fatal overdoses reported in 2016.
And alcohol contributes to 88,000 deaths in the U.S. each year, more than double the number of people, 42,000, killed by heroin and opioid prescription drug overdose in 2016. Excessive drinking accounted for one in 10 deaths among working-age adults.
To emphasize the dire nature of the addiction crisis, NBC recently reported that “women addicted to opioids are turning to sex work in West Virginia.” They are out of work and hooked on prescription painkillers, doing whatever they can to maintain their deadly addiction.
And alcohol upstaged opioid abuse in news coverage recently, but only after Rear Adm. Ronny L. Jackson withdrew his name for consideration to head Veterans Affairs, in part because of allegations that he has abused alcohol. Jackson has denied any problem with alcohol.
Estes voiced, “I have seen a dramatic increase in the effectiveness of early intervention by utilizing a variety of the techniques we teach in our Advance Clinical Intervention Course. This is real life, not TV, and we need to employ real strategies that work.”
“Our exclusive RAAD model focuses on body language, client placement, meeting the client at their level and proper placement for continuum care.”
This special edition live training will include Ethics Training, Relapse Prevention Training, Case Management Training, and 10 weeks of Clinical Supervision.
The course is being held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from May 24th to May 26th, 2018.
