Patient Testimonials


“Dr Fohrer is professional, private and personal. She understood my individual issues and was dedicated to helping me succeed in sobriety. I am a clinical social worker by profession and highly recommend Dr. Fohrer.”
- Lee Hannan, patient
- O.C., patient“I was at my lowest point, feeling hopeless, deeply depressed and mourning the end of my marriage and loss of my partner. I was using alcohol to treat my anxiety and sadness and became dependent. This dependence started to take its toll on my life in a negative way. I no longer recognized myself. The best phone call I ever made was calling Dr. Fohrer. It saved my life. Life changing.”
“Primarily, my opiate addiction. I was heavily dependent on oxycodone and taking opiates at an increasing rate. I was also abusing a variety of other substances including Adderall (prescribed), cocaine, acid, alcohol, marijuana - really anything I could get my hands on.  Though apprehensive, I voluntarily entered Dr. Fohrer's outpatient detox and follow-up program. Detox was like coming out of a dense fog and rediscovering my true self. Thirty days in, friends and family noticed a change both in disposition and appearance. I was thinking more clearly and communicating better. Color returned to my face and I no longer looked cadaverous.  I felt more like myself; I was "there" again.” - N.B., patient
- Brett C, patient“Needed help coping with life after drinking.  I had another relapse and was ready to try something besides just 12 step meetings. Dr. F has been instrumental in my recovery.  I feel so much less shame and less of a stigma from being an alcoholic and addict. When I visit her, I feel like we're just discussing a condition that I have and ways to treat it.  And I always leave feeling better.”
