On January 18, 2012, the California Board of Psychology suspended Juan C. Perez, Ph.D. for 90 days as part of a seven-year probation of his license due to his relapse into substance abuse.

The Board’s document states that Perez showed up at work on or about April 9, 2010 under the influence of a benzodiazepine and was impaired. Perez admitted that the incident was a relapse into substance abuse. Ten years earlier, Perez pleaded guilty on three occasions to reckless driving, driving under the influence and unlicensed driving. At that time, the Board filed an Accusation against him which concluded in a settlement agreement which placed him on probation for five years with terms and conditions. However, four years later, he relapsed. The Board’s document states that he has a history of showing up to work while under the influence and has been sent home by his superiors for the same.
