sA-10 12:01 AM on 01/01/2013Not even written by Per. Guaranteed. as79669 05:25 PM on 11/27/2012I have read the complaints and none of them were even similar to the experience I had at A Forever Recovery. Mr. Wickstrom’s story motivates me as a recovered addict. I have got my life back together and now I am going to back to school. Congrats to him and everyone who rises above their challenges to do great things! Yu-kai -Chou 10:18 PM on 11/21/2012I don't say this a lot, but Per is one of the people I respect the most. I think it's respectable that he picks himself back up from a rut. I think it's respectable that he is always telling those around him to impact others positively, despite all the bashers out there. He's not perfect, but he tries his best, and the post here is simply to encourage others to try their best too, no matter how low they fall.I've met Per personally before, and I only have good things to say about this man. I'm a regular guest speaker/lecturer at Stanford University and other organizations (look me up). Would you rather listen to the person who's actually met Per and has a real face/reputation, or anonymous people who's never heard a word from Per? Momma2012 09:31 PM on 11/21/2012You all have no idea what you are talking about. These programs are not a Narconon program. If you knew what the programs are you would know they are not a Narconon program. A Forever Recovery and Best Drug Rehabilitation are different from Narconon. You may find some complaints on RipoffReport like Mary said but you will also find more people living today because they are no longer addicted to drugs. I sent my loved ones there Mary. They became drug free from the program. Call and talk to someone there and get educated. You may not like Per...but his desire to be in the treatment industry has saved many lives. I promise you that. Too bad you all can not get to actually know him as a human being instead of sitting in judgment continuously. You might be surprised to find out he is a good person wanting to get people to live their life again. sA-10 07:32 PM on 12/31/2012Per has actually never ran one person through a treatment program. Did you know that? He's the entrepeneur remember? He owns the buildings and websites and his main motivation is $$$$$$. He'd rather keep the money than pay for things like, electricity, food, taxes. He'll blame it on Kate though. check out Vince Daniels.... ComandanteRX 03:09 PM on 01/01/20131. Per is a scientologist.2. Per is in the rehab business for the MONEY ONLY.3. Per does in fact use scientology teachings within his rehabs.4. Per DOES pay ABLE to use scientology teachings wihin his rehabs. JustCallMeMary 08:55 PM on 11/18/2012I don't even know where to begin to review this self promoting baloney. Readers, just google search "Per Wickstrom" and "Narconon Stone Hawk" and go to ripoffreport . com to see the multiple complaints about him, the Narconon program he made a lot of money off of (which many people got ripped off). And how he ran the place into the ground. And while there search for his latest scams, "Best Drug Rehabilitation Services" ( Best Drug Rehab Services) and " A Forever Recovery". These are Narconon programs in disguise. Narconon is Scientology. Many consistent complaints can be found on RipOffReport. You don't want to send your loved one there for sure. Per Wickstrom 05:10 PM on 11/22/2012Thanks for the comment, despite being unnecessarily aggressive. I understand that there are anonymous critics out there that would be delighted if I failed, but the truth is that I have every intent to do my best to save lives.This is a business of making people stop doing what they don't want to stop on. The ones that do stop thank us at the end, but the ones that decide to not go along with our program despite our best efforts get upset and post negatively about my efforts to help the world, as well as me personally.The truth of the matter is my story is real, and I was truly helped by Narconon. It worked for me when nothing else did. However Best Drug Rehabilitation is not a Narconon. It uses many different treatment methods, from all walks of life, all different Religions, and philosophies, which provides a holistic atmosphere meant to help an individual through the unique method that will be most effective.I think it is much more constructive to think of better ways to help addicts if you disagree with my approach instead of criticizing, because the thousands of families that I have help mended is very real, and until the critics come up with something better, I will continue to change lives with the approach that I have seen work again and again.Thank you.- Per Wickstrom JustCallMeMary 10:20 PM on 12/30/2012You are so full of baloney....Readers can get more information and read all the complaints people have about Per Wickstrom and his Narconon based programs by visiting Reaching For The Tipping Point Forum reaching4 (dot) info sA-10 07:35 PM on 12/31/2012If you were so helped by Narconon then why did you continue to use alcohol. How many times did your partner look for you when you were on a binder? Bewareofscams 10:32 AM on 11/18/2012Buyer beware! Narconon is facing several lawsuits, involving a string of deaths and other incidents, in Georgia, Oklahoma, Michigan, California and elsewhere. Narconon is a scientology front group.More info at www.narconon-exposed.org/ and http://www.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/ Addiction Analyst 09:50 AM on 11/16/2012Great Article! I was a leader in the alcohol and other drug field for years before I retired and I reviewed over 150 rehab centers in the US and Europe. I can vouch for what Mr. Wickstrom is saying in his article. Narconon is the most effective treatment modality available. Across the board, their graduates make more significant and positive changes in their lives than any other type of treatment. Alcoholics and drug addicted persons graduate from their program believing in themselves and being able to demonstrate their strength through their work and their higher level of ethics. It is a very functional program and many, including a loved one in my family that was diagnosed by three other centers as being incurable, are doing well and thankful that they found the tools that work in repairing their lives.Mac McGregor LADC, DBAE, IC&RC JustCallMeMary 08:50 PM on 11/18/2012All anyone has to do to know what you do and did in the past, William Kent McGregor. is to Google search your name and your history, especially as a social worker. Never paid that judgement, heh?I see you added the IC&RC as a title. There is no such licensing by that acronym.. IC&RC stands for International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium. They IC&RC sets the internationally recognized standards for seven reciprocal credentials, NONE of which you hold.Alcohol & Drug Counselor (ADC)Advanced Alcohol & Drug Counselor (AADC)Clinical Supervisor (CS)Prevention Specialist (PS)Certified Criminal Justice Addictions Professional (CCJP)Certified Co-Occurring Disorders Professional (CCDP)Certified Co-Occurring Disorders Professional Diplomate (CCDPD)I see you finally stopped using the false licensing MAC title you used on the internet sometimes.

Always good to see another side so one can see the truth of the matter or of the person. Thank you.
I posted 4 comments that didnt get through Oh well, looks like the others did a fine job of exposing his self promoting BS.
He can hire all the PR and SEO companies in the world to try and make him look good and get his sites on the first page of Google. No matter. He cant hide from the police and the insurance fraud investigators.
Trying to get enough posts to go on to the 2nd page. I've begun to hate coming to this thread because of that disgusting photo in the first post.
