Yes. It's mind boggling how Wickstrom  is able to keep at it.

Stonehawk closes  only to open A Forever Recovery, AFR gets bad press and reviews, the property  literally crumbling, so he opens Best Drug Rehab. Then he further confuses the trail of his abuses by  opening Tranquility Detox, which now is planned to be expanded to residential' treatment' as well.

Between this and Arrowhead's plans to re-open it's medical detox in OK - it feels like a never ending game of Wack-a-Mole, as facilities are shut down by an angry, grieving and defrauded public -- only to pop up somewhere else.

The only way it's going to stop is when those profiting from inflicting so much misery on others end up here:

I agree Big Beard.

But I don't think that will happen until Insurance fraud becomes the major issue.

Sad to say, but usually only money can successfully fight money.
And even sadder to say, money is what government cares mostly  about.

People can die, vulnerable families can be cheated and defrauded - but they will only be an insignificant blip on the radar.

Narconon and Wickstom's cloaked enterprises engage in insurance fraud routinely.

THAT will be what will bring them down.

I tend to agree, SP.

Despite all of the lip service to the contrary, individuals with mental health and substance abuse problems don't get much priority, when it comes to oversight of programs from state government.

OTOH, I'm doubtful that much of the insurance fraud has occurred on the government side (Medicaid/Medicare). It is more likely group insurance, provided through employers, that has been defrauded.

Regardless, we all pay the price for healthcare fraud!

I agree, Suppressive Person.  I've heard them compared to the Energizer Bunny.  After all, we only have one lifetime, but they have all eternity, until they become OT enough to get off of this "prison planet" and join their founder in outer space.

IMO, the key is to teach people to recognize the pseudoscience, rather than facility names.  They can change their names, but they can't change their quackery.

Bonnie, in your 2 emails to me, you never mentioned that you could not reach anyone at BDR by phone. In the last email ( sent to me after you wrote the above ) you stated that you spoke with your son while he was there. I already responded to your last email a few minutes ago, not having seen this post of yours.. I am a bit confused.

Sounds like you are already in touch with Mary. Without being completely familiar with your loved one's circumstances, you can call the police. If you are planning on pulling him out of the program, have the police meet you there.

They keep dodging and sliding around what rules there are for rehabs. Sadly, there aren't a lot in most places.

Keep in mind that they like to listen in on phone calls, even if on a pay phone. Don't assume that your plans are a secret to them. Good luck!

Your question is one that has many scratching their heads. The police, the Attorney General and others are apparently aware of the situation, but these scientology-based rehabs remain open.

Glad you're getting him out. Wishing you and your boyfriend the very best! Don't hesitate to have the local police meet you there.

This is a question we ask all the time.  Were you able to get him out, and is he ok?

And the lunatics are running the place.

UPDATE: Kudos and thanks to poster bonniemreese, along with the parents of the loved one and the Battle Creek police dept.  The loved got out of Best Drug Rehabilitation Center's Tranquility Detox in Battle Creek, MI and finally made it home. Getting him home was quite a feat and big amount of juggling, despite BDR's attempts to get him to stay.

More details to follow in the future.  :){}{}{}
