Parents sue SE Oklahoma drug rehab center for negligence in death of their ... - The Republic
27 August 2012, 11:08 pm

McALESTER, Okla. — The parents of a former drug rehabilitation center patient have sued the facility for negligence in their daughter' death.

The McAlester News-Capital (http://bit.ly/NttHXn) reports a lawsuit filed on behalf of Matthew and Suzan Holten alleges Narconon Arrowhead didn't provide adequate medical care for Hillary Holten.

Hillary Holten died April 11, one of three recent deaths at the facility in Canadian, in southeastern Oklahoma.

In the lawsuit, the Holtens said they informed Narconon that their daughter had a condition which limits the adrenal glands' ability to produce enough cortisol, and she needed to take a steroid daily.

The lawsuit says the facility informed the Holtens that a registered nurse and a medical director could manage her condition.

Please keep the Holten's in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Rest in Peace, Suzan  \--O--/


Before she passed away, Suzan bravely was able to give her deposition in the wrongful death lawsuit she and Matt filed against Narconon Arrowhead. 

Narconon caused Hillary's death by withholding her must take medication for a hereditary adrenal condition during the first 2 days she was there, causing immune suppression and pneumonia.

I know that nothing devastates more than when a mother loses her child.  But a wife and a child would have to be brutal.

First addiction, then a hopeful call to a Narconon salesperson.

Then a phone call later with the death of their child.

Then cancer.

I wish her mom could have passed knowing that her daughter actually got clean and sober, that her child was going to have a happy life.  What a neat gift that would have been...

Prayers are going out.
