I wonder how scripted these success stories are? I noticed several of the students said very similar things. Maybe Cigul could weigh in on this.

Maybe Cigul could weigh in on this.Not Cigul, and I would like to hear what s/he has to say on this too, but in my opinion, when the "students" are being drilled on the same things, in the same way, that is, slowly being turned into a scientology robot, I imagine they would possibly say the similar things without any coaching. They learn from the others what it takes to finish up and get out of the program - unless, of course, it's such a drug paradise there that they don't want to leave. We have heard many times about drug use in the Narconon facilities, seems to be consistent across the board, not limited to one or a few Narconons. There's even court evidence of that in the Desmond case.

I'm not going to repeat everyone's stories Ive read about narconon. Its horrible! Im a very thorough person but when my son came to me and wanted help, I became emotional and against my better judgement let these people snow me. It started with a "referral" site was suppose to be independent of any rehab programs. Long story short as soon as my son got to the center after his non medical detox he was sent to the center in warner springs california, called sunshine summit lodge, narconon fresh start. Everything these people told me on the phone were complete and utter lies!!! the brochure made it look so nice. They said had the best medical staff at this site with the best doctors and nurses. They have NO medical staff there.
It appears that ADP has been busy; Narconon Fresh Start Sunshine Summit got busted for running not one, not two but THREE unlicensed facilities in Sunshine Summit (Warner Springs).I believe the Barn is located on Narconon JLB ranch property, the Big House is west of the general store and the Top House is located on a hill behind the main lodge, maybe Cigul can comment. The Barn 35955 Highway 79 Warner Springs, CA 92086 License Number: Unlicensed Facility Cease and Desist Issued: September 6, 2012 The Big House 35422 Highway 79 Warner Springs, CA 92087 License Number: Unlicensed Facility Cease and Desist Issued: September 6, 2012 The Top House 35025 Highway 79 Warner Springs, CA 92086 License Number: Unlicensed Facility Cease and Desist Issued: September 6, 2012 http://www.adp.cahwnet.gov/Licensing/pdf/Suspended_and_Revoked_Programs.pdf
YES! Oh I have been waiting for them to get busted with those three people mills! You are correct, Sunshine, about the locations. And there are two more in addition. "The Blue House" which is also in the general location of the general store and another directly across the road from the office.
For a fact there were and I'm sure still are students living in the blue house. The house across the street was staff/interns only while I was there. However, they abide by no rules regarding that sort of thing; the house up the hill was also designated staff/interns but had staff/interns/students all living together. So who knows? But again, definitely at the blue house.
