I would like to know how he ended up in this GA outpatient rehab when he was from Pennsylvania. Was there an out of state DUI involved? Like Patrick, he went in for alcohol rehab and died from an overdose of a much "harder" drug. Investigators need to at least ask Mary Reiser a few tough questions.
They moved him from the berkely landing housing to 'the hotel'which is somewhere near the center.At some other point they took his keys or his car.When people move to the hotel you dont here to much about them anymore.Ron was a superrvisor.He started having more and more problems when he became staff.
Although someone's doc might be informational let's not lose sight of what's really going on here. These people are looking for help and asking for help. Narconon promises them that help. They sell a grand idea to their families and loved ones and then collect the cash ( $15,000 - $30,000 ). How do they plan to "cure" these people? They send them to the sauna to sweat it out and fill them full of Niacin. It's a vitamin right, so it can't be bad for you can it? This cardiologist says otherwise http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/niacin-overdose/AN01644
Who is administering these drugs and checks on the patients afterwards? The side effects of high dosages can be dangerous not to mention very stressful on the body of an addict going through withdrawals. Another Narcanon facility was closed because of these practices."In fact, the Narconon Trois-Rivieres Scientology rehab was shut down by government officials because of dangers to the health and safety of patients. The health agency noted that several patients had been sent to hospital and that the treatments provided at the center were placing patient health at risk. At that time, there had been patient deaths inside Narconon Arrowhead, and the Quebec authorities acted to prevent this from happening in Canada by forcing the rehab to close and immediately remove all patients."http://www.examiner.com/article/big-pharma-blamed-for-troubles-of-scientology-s-narconon-rehabsI only wished authorities cared enough about the other people under going these crackpot treatments to close them all down. There has been death after death throughout the Narconon facilities. How many is it going to take before they see what is really going on here. These patients are given no professional counseling, have been denied medical attention in some cases and then housed together to babysit each other and left to their own demise. How are they still licensed and open to practice anything?
You're singing to the choir, here. Despite numerous complaints and inquiries, state agencies have failed to act in Georgia. Despite the deaths in Oklahoma, Narconon Arrowhead is still open. It is incomprehensible and leads one to believe that those suffering from addiction, just don't rate!
Narconon's lies are killing people and our government is letting them get away with it!!!
In addition to medical management services, the program shall provide the client counseling and support by staffwho are determined qualified by training, education, experience, and who are licensed/certified if required by statepractice acts to provide such services. Such services shall be provided to clients as soon as it is determined thatthey can benefit from such services but no later than within three work days of admission.
In May of 2012 Narconon of Georgia had an inspection and failed miserably on every account of providing evidence that they are operating a legitimate facility. Here is the link to the inspection report.http://184.108.40.206:7001/ORSINV/PDFS_DRUGABUSE/DRUG002034TIR411.pdfWhen questioned about these deficiencies the Executive Director and the Case Supervisor replied with "but we didn't know we needed that". Really?? Narconon has been running this facility for how many years and you are telling me that a person in these high ranked positions has no idea what is required of them? The case studies were pulled for 9 patients. In the beginning of the report it say there were 18 patients enrolled in the program at that time so 50% of the patients files were reviewed and 100% of those failed on EVERY requirement. And they are still licenced and open for business?? It also states in this inspection that it is required that QuoteIn addition to medical management services, the program shall provide the client counseling and support by staffwho are determined qualified by training, education, experience, and who are licensed/certified if required by statepractice acts to provide such services. Such services shall be provided to clients as soon as it is determined thatthey can benefit from such services but no later than within three work days of admission.Were any of the case studies ( or ANY NN patient) given counseling by a licensed and train professional? Of course not. How could they be when their "counselors" are fresh out of rehab themselves. It seems to me that it is very blatantly obvious that these people are just running a big scheme to collect on the unfortunate. The only answers they can seem to provide is that a patient's/staff's death is their own fault and a big shoulder shrug and "we didn't know that" when it comes to questions about state regulated requirements.
This pretty obviously is yet another horrible death directly related to Narconon.My two cents:Any individual with information - including IKnowTheTruth, loriisbored, mefree's "former patient" acquantance, or anyone else - should call the Gwinnett Police at 770.513.5210or go to their Headquarters at 770 Hi Hope Rd, Lawrenceville, GA 30044 and request the opportunity to speak to the detective handling the investigation of Ronald Corona's death. Here is the thing: Police and District Attorneys of the world need actionable information from living, breathing witnesses in order to make cases.While you are at it, please also suggest that Commissioner David Cooke's office at DCH should be contacted since he and the healthcare division inspectors are supposedly actively involved in conducting an investigation. Either that or you yourselves contact DCH directly: 404-656-4507
The Medical Examiner has just announced the toxicology findings and the final opinion as to cause of death.
YOU guys may or may not know this but housing is now run by darrel and dan hall (called discovery course) not the same company as the desmond case.Darrell freakin hall is an adderall munching paranoid freak.dudes nuts
Toxicology tests show a 39-year-old man whose body was found two months ago in a Peachtree Corners office park died of cocaine use, the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner's Office said Tuesday.
I asked the former Narconon of Georgia patient how Narconon dealt with Ronald Corona after his relapse. This is his response:QuoteThey moved him from the berkely landing housing to 'the hotel'which is somewhere near the center.At some other point they took his keys or his car.When people move to the hotel you dont here to much about them anymore.Ron was a superrvisor.He started having more and more problems when he became staff.

It is incomprehensible and leads one to believe that those suffering from addiction, just don't rate!Or Narconon's (along with the whole church of Scientology) pockets are so deep from all the cash they have collected they can pay officials off! I cannot comprehend any other reason why a person would choose to look the other way or write it off as shotty paperwork. They should not be allowed to operate as any kind of rehab in or out patient. Narconon's lies are killing people and our government is letting them get away with it!!!
I use to work in technology park 15 years ago, 1 Technology Park to be exact, back then it was a very nice area we would walk the area on nice days during our lunch hour. The tree lined streets and the perfectly manicured flower gardens were the perfect setting for a spring time walk. However in recent years the area is not so nice, the park still tries to keep the manicured flower beds and Bradford pear trees have split and been replaced in some parts, but the drug activity in the area makes it such that nobody in their right mind would go out for an evening walk in the area. I have relatives that still live in the area just because they can't afford to move out their house is worth much less than they paid for it. So my question is why in the world would NNGas put someone in a living facility right in the middle of a drug infested area with little to no supervision. Oh that's right addiction is NOT a disease and is curable so no need to worry about influences and the ease of the ability to obtain drugs. Let me end by saying, UGH!!!!!
