Richard and Lori Johnson founded Amicus House, Inc in 1998 after owning and directing Moriah, Inc. an alcohol and drug treatment program, which was comprised of 7 facilities founded by them in 1989. Richard Johnson began his career in the field in 1977 and was an innovator in the area of rehabilitation and the creation of alternatives to incarceration of alcoholics and drug offenders.

Steve began his career in the field of substance abuse treatment in 1984 and has become one of the most highly regarded and well respected professionals in this field.
Over the years, Lori and Steve have established themselves as authorities in the field of addiction and recovery. After Steve’s retirement in 2012, Lori, as the Director of Amicus House, continues to uphold her personal values while maintaining a facility dedicated to helping those in need.
