Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101

Denise Krochta

Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – The Addictions Coach

What does “going to rehab” mean to you? To most of us it means 28-30 days of residential treatment away from our own environment for a lot of money.

I often think of what rehab type would make the most sense. Yes, everyone is different and responds to different things. There really isn’t a lot “different” out there just yet. It is getting better. More choices. But we have a long way to go.

This week’s show is all about choices and possibilities. How do you think rehab should go? Would being able to stay in your own environment be good or bad? How about going about your work, school, social responsibilities and being able to “bounce off” situations with a therapist/counselor when “stuff” happens, to get immediate tools to use? What about someone being by your side when you relapse or to help you help yourself not to relapse? Denise speaks with Cali Estes, founder of the Addictions Academy and The Addictions Coach, about the different, creative modes of treatment she is discovering to work well with a different “twist”.
