The following information is being posted to document Best Drug Rehabilitation Center of Michigan as being a scientology based program licensed by Narconon. This info has been shared appropriately with others interested in this connection.

This information supports the many claims by victims of Best Drug rehab center ( BDR) that they were made to study scientology.

Scientology Communication Training Drills/course - BDR is using them
Note the Communications Course components, the use of the word 'drills' and the Narconon copyright and symbol at the midway down. See attached copy

Narconon's Theraputic TRs course book ( the secular book of these drills ) same content, different typeset and cover)

Mary, I am going to break your direct links, so we don't tip them off that we're onto them by leaving TP as a referring site in their server logs.  One thing people do, even if they don't fully analyze their web stats, is to look and see where their hits are coming from. 

Great finds, though!

I had to look at the site.  Per Wickstrom claims to have been a professional boxer now.  He made a hilarious video about his boxing gym in battle creek.  A must see.

Watch out for the product placement.  Theres a dianetics book in the first couple scenes.

Thanks! Yes, it's funny. He sounds like he's been smoking his whole life, and then some. He's a potential throat cancer patient

This Ripoff Report is written by a Nurse Practitioner whose nephew went to BDR. She received replies from others who were having similar problems.

Douglas Wickstrom is more slimy than Per.  Its not the apple falling far from the tree in this one, its the tree falling on the apple and slowly decaying into a rotting pile of bark and moss.

My SIL was asked to transfer her mailing address from home to the above address so they could collect "in=network" benefits for my newphew then kindly told her she wouldn't have to pay any additional monies out of pocket, the facility would cover that with grants and scholarships and they would keep my newphew as long as he wanted to stay? She was dumbfound and in awe which made her so much more vulnerable. First of all, the mailing address change is highy illegal and fraudulent from an insurance perspective (mind you all along I'm under the assumption her Anthem plan is aware of this facility but that it was simply "out-of-network"; I later found out Anthem had nothing to do with helping her find this facility, she did so thru internet search). And sadly from a medical perspective, we providers and many of you know all to well that legimate insurance and hopsital based facilites will never state the person can stay as long as they want..

Using my medical credentials I'd also been able to search with help that BDRs CARF medical accredidation is fraudulent. Their lame photocopy license has 6 digits, a legit license will have 10 with a posted exp date and an embossed/notary. The 2 licensed therapists listed for their faciilty also state they have counseling and therapy educations/certificates/degrees but even the Atty Gen office confirmed no such certificates exist under their names! Again, how would a vulnerable parent even think to consider these things!

After confronting them about the fraudulent medical license, the fraudulent therapists credentials and the fraudulent insurance scheme we were immediately told "we'll call to transport him here as we don't want any trouble."

Good job on the rebuttal, BMF.  You're a gem.
