Name: Robert Cox

Message: Just want to acknowledge the wonderful, expedient training for my CDCA recertification I received from Joyce Pleasant, of Pleasant People INC. Mrs. Pleasant helped me tremendously, especially considering I waited weeks before my expiration date of my current license. My job was on the line, her workshops made it possible , with her expertise, she was able to accommodate me immediately, even around my busy schedule. That and the fact she showed me how to summit my classes as well as a method of obtaining my license immediately, which is what I valued the most. Not only is she professional, she relieved me of the stress/anxieties I was experiencing, due to my lack of diligence. This was my second recertification with Joyce Pleasant, I highly recommend Pleasant People INC. Again, I thank you..

This film opening my eyes for not drink and drive I don't want that to happen to me.


The instructor has great knowledge on the topic and seems to care about what she is teaching us. A+



Joyce did an excellent job as usual but this seemed to be her specialty. She showed much passion on this topic.



Joyce you touched some areas in my heart that make me want to really try to carry out a sober life. Thank you 



Thank you so much for speaking to us tonight. I'm actually glad that I was able to participate in this class now there have been so many times where I could have ended up where you were, I really don't want to go through that. You have giving me some "true life" to digest and reflect on . Thank you  




I've learned about the differences signs of the long term effects that drinking can do to my body if I continue  to drink. 



I learned what cocaine and Marijuana  (weed)  can do to you, and if you add alcohol  what affects it can have when you mix them . The teacher wad great she shared her experience and what she lost touched my heart . God gave her a calling and she does a great job at teaching. 



The whole class was a blessing to me and I am very thankful for everyone and all the instructors that helped me.
