Mr. Yohanas is a very special person and a wonderful therapist. He is very patient and willing to listen. he is very knowledgeable about drugs, alcohol, anger issues, relapse traps, and DUI / DWI's. I learned so much from him and I am now on the road to maintaining my sobriety. Thanks so much.


Mr. Yohanas just made me feel so comfortable and I could discuss any topic with him. His knowledge of drugs, alcohol and issues relating to DWI / DUI's are amazing. I am so glad he was my counselor when I needed one. A very good professional.


I was very apprehensive about my latest DUI charge. When I spoke to Mr. Yohanas I could tell that he cared about my situation. He took the time to talk to me about the steps I needed to take and has been very helpful to me and has now involved my entire family as part of my overall treatment. I just want to thank you, Mr. Yohanas, for handling my situation with great professionalism and confidentiality.


Mr. Yohanas help me to recognize and deal with my underlying depression, which came up when I was seeing him for a DUI charge. He explained information to me and helped me along the way. Because of him I have been better able to cope with and learn about my problems. Thank you.
