Loved the classes!

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I took a class with Kevin and loved it. The Addictions Academy has 30 plus classes, all accredited and they even helped me get a job at a treatment center as a coach. I am looking forward to more classes. Since they have so many different instructors, my next class is scheduled with Dr. Weiss to learn sex addiction. I saw him on Good Morning America and I wanted to learn from him.

Don't waste your money

I've been in the recovery industry for 16 years. I know of 3 individuals who took Cali's and TAA's intervention training and were bilked out of their money. They were led to believe that they were Certified Intervention Professionals after completing her class. NOTHING could have been further from the truth. They were given a nice looking certificate with a nice looking seal but credentialed by no one but her. There is no governing body for Cali's training's. The Pennsylvania Certification Board is the governing body for legitimate interventionists. NAADAC does not recognize her classes any longer. She is a scam and most reputable treatment centers know about her.

I see that neither Cali nor The Addictions Academy has no response to this review.

Dr. Cali & The Addictions Academy

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I had an outstanding experience as a student of Dr. Cali Estes and The Addictions Academy. I enrolled in both the Recovery Coach & Intervention online courses. The classes were very educational and I took away a lot of knowledge and skill sets from both classes. My only complaint would be the cruel negative comments that have circulated about TAA and Dr. Estes by a disturbed individual who should seek the services and help Dr. Estes offers. Services and courses that have positively impaced the lives of countless people, struggling with addiction and mental health issues. I hope anyone who is considering becoming an addictions recovery coach, take a moment of time to check out the addictions academy student testimonial videos on youtube as well as the taa website. Thank you Dr. Estes and TAA for your fantastic progroms!

Paid for review, this is a scam artist. These certifications are not recognized anywhere in the US

Know of 3 individuals who took TAA & Cali's interventionist training. Cali led them to believe that they were Certified Interventionists with a governing certification board.

NOT TRUE....all they had was a piece of paper from her. The governing body for Certified Intervention Professionals in the Pennsylvania Certification Board......All the legitimate intervention trainings work towards certification thru that governing body.

I also read on NADAC's website that Cali's courses are no longer being recognized by them. so NO CEU's from her classes either.

Excellent Academy

The guy making these accusations is a competitor trying to discredit The Addictions Academy. He is already part of a lawsuit with a cease and desist order against him. I have been working with The Addictions Academy for over 4 years and I have only experienced the highest quality and integrity from its instructors. There have been several past students that took their materials and started their own companies also trying to discredit the original Addictions Academy. It's a shame that in today's world anyone can say whatever they please and there seems to be no recourse or punishment for the offending individual or individuals. If the academy was a fake, why is it constantly in the news? Every large and many small news outlets have featured many stories and interviews. Check your facts and stop believing all of this fiction.

Dr. Cali & TAA are outstanding.

Their educational training program for Addiction Recovery is exceptional. I would highly recommend checking out the addictions academy youtube channel and view the student testimonials.

Did you put the cease and desist order because you lacked the courage to accept what was coming from the person?? Or did you put it because you were afraid of the truth, a truth you lacked the adequate courage to tell yourself?
