Dr. Cali Estes, The Addictions Coach and Founder of The Addictions Academy recently announced they have partnered with a new Addiction professional, JoBeth Evans. Evans is slated to coordinate offering Addiction Recovery Coaching services to large corporations in Arkansas and Missouri to assist staff with increasing their productivity and their bottom line.
Evans’s training and experience allows her to work with clients that are recovering addicts that are living a sober life so they get the information they need to change their thinking and live a life of abundance in recovery. She teaches clients how to change their thinking in order to change their lives.
“By working together closely weekly and biweekly, I find clients are able to see success early on in the coaching process,” Evans explained. “I’m very focused on helping people get the results they want.”
Evans uses something called The Model that allows clients to coach themselves in between sessions. The Model teaches the client to identify thoughts about circumstances that are creating their feelings, actions, and results. From there Evans helps the client identify thoughts that are untrue and replace them with thoughts that are true and serve them as they create the life they desire.
Estes said, “JoBeth has an extraordinary approach to helping those who struggle with addiction and has an especially amazing talent to connect with women. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on our team.”
The nation’s opioid crisis reached new proportions in 2018, continuing to increase from the unbelievable 70,000 deaths we saw in 2017. Overdose deaths are now higher than deaths from H.I.V, car crashes, or gun violence at their peaks.
Fox News reported, “For the first time, odds of dying from opioid overdose higher than dying from a car crash.” The story also noted that a new analysis from the National Safety Council says the odds of dying by an accidental opioid overdose (1 in 96) have now surpassed the odds of dying in a car accident (1 in 103).
A recent report from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, titled “Opioids and Work: A Critical Connection” highlighted the fact that workplace conditions can contribute to or help prevent opioid addiction. And employers and unions can play a vital role in supporting people in recovery.
“Three-quarters of people using opioids are working, and many become addicted because of job-related injuries and stress,” said Joseph Hughes, head of the worker education and training branch of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).
When most people think of opioid addiction, they think of someone who is hungry and homeless, living under an overpass, but that’s often only the end of a long chain of addiction that starts elsewhere. Many workers who have physically demanding jobs, including nurses and construction workers, become addicted after they are prescribed opioids for pain relief.
Explaining the need for workplace addiction recovery programs, Dr. Estes said, “The workplace and employers can provide much-needed support and motivation to help workers in recovery. Good jobs provide not only a paycheck, but also stability, structure, a sense of purpose and identity, and social support for people struggling with substance use disorder and mental health issues.”
“One of the worst things you can do to a person struggling with addiction is to fire them,” she pointed out.
Evans has taught college and high school for a combined 7 years and holds a masters degree in education. She has a knack for working with young women and is very serious about the work she does with her corporate clients. She brings great energy to each session and makes clients feel comfortable allowing them to be vulnerable and receive meaningful feedback
“I believe that every client has the choice to live the life they desire and she gives them the tools and the process to go through to get there,” Evans said recently.
