Thanks for the response. From Talking to the people at Discovery House I can tell it's definitely not a Narconon operating under a different name - reason number one being that they employ a psychiatrist/psychologist. NN and SCN would never allow that, lmao.

Don - you should have money in your account today.
I'm also wondering about what faith exactly is Discovery House's "faith based" on site meetings supposedly premised and whether such involves any jabbering at ash trays.
The goal of any counseling is to identify the underlying causes of your addiction and help you to handle those issues in order to prevent relapse. This integrated approach to relapse prevention allows you to not only stop using drugs but to stay off drugs permanently.
... I have some level of familiarity with rather infamous Dr. Max Fried. ...
In 2004, when he returned to Georgia, he began practicing with his father, Milton Fried, M.D. Milton Fried was the physician who brought alternative medicine to Georgia many years ago and took many arrows because of it. In addition to his MD degree he had degrees as a Physical Therapist, a DC, an Osteopath, and a Homeopath. Together, they cared for many of the hard patients, often the ones that the conventional doctors could not help. They dealt with cancer patients, stroke patients, MS patients, lupus, diabetics, cardiac and respiratory patients as well as the usual patients one sees in a family practice. The years he spent working with his father were an invaluable experience because he was able to gain an understanding of sickness, health and healing from the Western paradigm as related to his Oriental paradigm.
One of the "off-site independant (sic) service providers", Dana Kuebler, "Naturopath and a Nationally Certified Masters Addiction Counselor", and the owner and founder of Body Cleanse Intensive, is on the list of people who may have discoverable information in the class action lawsuit against Narconon. http://www.scribd.com/doc/157592269/Burgess-Plaintiffs-Initial-Disclosures
Thanks for the response. From Talking to the people at Discovery House I can tell it's definitely not a Narconon operating under a different name - reason number one being that they employ a psychiatrist/psychologist. NN and SCN would never allow that, lmao. Apparently there's 3 different routes you can take at DH. 12-step, faith-based, and eastern philosophy. Along with 1-on-1 counseling with the psych-man, and support group stuff. This is all foreign to me coming from going thru 2 different NN's, as well as working at NNLA for a long time. I wouldn't be completely against going back to a NN - they didn't work for me because I never worked the tech outside of NN... Maybe. Who knows. I'm heading to Discovery House tomorrow... I'll let you guys know what I find.
