Looks much older here on his facebook. Cancer can do that. Wonder if he failed to get appropriate medical care in time.... Rest in Peace, Larry.

At Reaching For The Tipping Point Forum, we have DCH documents showing they were busted in Mar 2003, during an inspection of the facility, for illegal group home on the premises but cleared in June 2003! Here's a photo of a news article taken in July 2003 with the caption"......Narconon of Georgia founder Mary Rieser look over material to help RESIDENTS....

I believe Narconon of Georgia was licensed by DCH at ASAM Level 1. They attempted, in 2006, to surreptitiously go to 3.5, but DCH said no, Mary Rieser made excuses as usual, and DCH revoked their license. NN appealed, and won (somehow). Just before the current license was revoked (which is now under appeal, as far as I know), they obtained a license for the sauna part of the program that was ASAM 2-D. This information is in the DCH documents, which I admit are in rather quite a mess, and really should be organized. And they will be, eventually.

If someone wanted to contact Gov. Deal's office and/or DCH Commissioner David Cook's office about the travesty of the early 2007 settlement of the administrative appeal of NNGA's license revocation and suggest that nothing of that sort should happen again, it might be a worthwhile call to make.

Commissioner David Cook was contacted directly via telephone concerning Narconon of Georgia. He and or his personal staff did not have the professional courtesy to reply to questions or concerns! I lost what little respect I had for the State of Georgia,s DCH quite some time ago. My only hope is that local media will embarrass this agency into enforcing current codes and law. That line of thought in of itself is sad in my opinion. The local media has its own agenda. They have to sell those commercial spots you know! I find it rather amusing our local media claimed to have uncovered various things when many of us here on this board know otherwise! But hey, you got to roll with whatever possible positive exposure you can get. Where was the local media years ago when this whole mess could have been exposed? Guess it took a poor young fellows death to make the topic interesting enough for the media to give this sordid affair exposure. To be honest with any of you,had it not been for my involvement with this issue of Narconon, I would have never watched the local media,s coverage. I do not find sensationalism either interesting or good journalism. The DCH treats the citizenry of Georgia rather poorly in my experience. As Gov. Deal has gutted DCH finances via massive budget cuts,I dare say things will only get worse before they get better. Even if Narconon is denied licensing by the DCH,I still do not have much faith in the agency overall. If Narconon is an example in which to gauge the DCH,s effectiveness in enforcement of state law,I shudder to think what other entities under DCH oversight do that may be far worse than anything Narconon has done. Narconon is but a small part of a much bigger problem.
