That’s a question almost every addict hates, because the truth is they likely don’t have one—at least not for their personal life. They’re stuck. And although most people think that therapy is the solution, it might not be.
Press play to learn:
The difference between therapy and coaching, and when one should be used over the other Why a ‘process addiction’ is harder to break than an alcohol or drug addiction A common difference between people who prefer “upper” as opposed to “downer” substances Why food addiction is one of the hardest addictions to break Cali Estes, PhD is a psychologist who specializes in addiction and uses a solution-focused approach to coaching and therapy. She’s also known as the “celebrity addictions coach.”
