Thanks for those.  I'll add those changes to Narconon Reviews.

Do we have an address for the Santa Cruz locations?  And are the inpatient and outpatient operating from the same address?  Thanks for any help.   :) 

I think they're squirming.

The one big thing missing from CARF's pages is the expiry date of their "three year accreditation". That smells.

Yes, it does help, thanks, 9001. 

Oh, I see, Santa Cruz is the county name, not the town name.   ::)

Attn: DeathHamster: I don't see where this was answered:
A November and December 2015 list? Are they revising that list monthly now? Excellent!

Does anyone have the DHCS parent page that links to their most current list? I'd like to set up a task to check for the latest one every couple days. (I suppose I could just brute force it and request Status_Report_month_year.pdf until it works.)

I'm hoping to start adding automated checking and updating of a lot of stuff to give more real-time notification of changes. Idle CPU cores are the devil's tools.   >:D

The Residential & Outpatient Licensed and/or Certified Facilities List (03/11/16) is available from here:
http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/Pages/SUDS-Compliance.aspx 
That looks like where they put them as they become available.

What a mess! I guess I better just go through the whole Facility Status Report and make notes on names and addresses.  I think I've thought of a better way to keep up with all of the addresses on NR than listing them on the individual location archive pages, but still have some details to work out and implement.  It would be nice to be able to track the allowed capacities and total occupancies according to their state licenses too because people might let us know if they're in violation. 

Any notification of changes would be helpful; so DH, go ahead and put those cores to work!

There's only one narconon location in Santa Cruz showing there and it's still under the name NARCONON REDWOOD CLIFFS:
 
County: SANTA CRUZ
Licence Number: 440009CN
Facility Name: NARCONON REDWOOD CLIFFS
Facility Address: 9c MAREA AVENUE
Facility City: LA SELVA BEACH

Edit: Oops! Should have read ethercat's facilities list before posting as that is much more comprehensive.

Soon. After I finish the connection from the Michigan LARA license info direct to the wiki pages, that's next.

The CHHS API is verra nice. You can set up a query in the URL and get the results back in a variety of formats.
https://dev.socrata.com/foundry/chhs.data.ca.gov/acfs-kwz8

https://chhs.data.ca.gov/resource/acfs-kwz8.json?record_id=090018CN gives json:
Quote
[{"county_code":"9","expiration_date":"2016-09-30T00:00:00.000","facility_address":"586 GLORENE AVENUE","facility_city":"SOUTH LAKE TAHOE","facility_phone":"(800)556-8885","facility_state":"CA","facility_zip":"96150-3907","legal_name":"HALCYON HORIZONS, INCORPORATED","location":{"type":"Point","coordinates":[-120.021243,38.920191]},"location_address":"586 GLORENE AVENUE","location_city":"SOUTH LAKE TAHOE","location_state":"CA","location_zip":"96150-3907","program_name":"ELEVATE ADDICTION SERVICES - SOUTH LAKE TAHOE","record_id":"090018CN","resident_capacity":"70","service_type":"RES-DETOX","target_population":"1.1  CO-ED","total_occupancy":"75"}]

https://chhs.data.ca.gov/resource/acfs-kwz8.csv?legal_name=HALCYON%20HORIZONS,%20INCORPORATED gives the whole set in csv. (There will be a way to use wildcards. I wouldn't depend on an exact name match.)

The first of California tables. This one was by hand to get the infobox class straightened up.

Category:Narconon Emerald Pines

I'll have to see if I can find their list of counties, then I can bung off a wiki function to convert the number to the county name. There's very little glue remaining to let the program do it automatically.

In the CHHS data, Elevate Addiction Services-Santa Cruz (formerly Narconon Redwood Cliffs) has three locations listed under the single 440009CN license. (This is not counting the 440009DN outpatient location.) They also seem to have bumped the capacity of their main 262 GAFFEY ROAD place from 49 to 61 residents.

| facility_address=125 FUCHSIA COURT
| facility_city=FREEDOM
| resident_capacity=6
| service_type=RES-DETOX
| total_occupancy=6

| facility_address=262 GAFFEY ROAD
| facility_city=WATSONVILLE
| resident_capacity=61
| service_type=RES-DETOX
| total_occupancy=61

| facility_address=9C MAREA AVENUE
| facility_city=LA SELVA BEACH
| resident_capacity=6
| service_type=RES-DETOX
| total_occupancy=6

Meh, I was almost done with the CHHS to wiki transfer, and now there's a special case to handle!

Better yet, the 262 GAFFEY ROAD location has this item:

additional_facility_locations: 80 VISTA VERDE CIRCLE AND 65 KING FISHER DRIVE

So, is that five locations under the one license?

Okay, that's multi-location licenses sorted out.

Category:Narconon Redwood Cliffs

Now I just have to move it to the new name and leave a redirect. (Pains me to do it when they'll be changing the name again in a year.)

Of the five locations for Elevate Addiction Services - Santa Cruz, the main one seems to be 262 GAFFEY ROAD (also HQ of Halcyon Horizons). The rest seem to be single-family dwellings (houses) that they're claiming to have 6 residents to go under the inspection radar. 9C MAREA AVENUE might be a condo/townhouse.

If they can get 6 people (or more), 4 times a year, they could pay off the house pretty fast. I wonder what the neighbors think, or how the zoning works for that. They might shuttle them to the main location during the day.

If 65 Kingfisher Dr is located in Watsonville, it's currently zoned single family residential. Which would mean operating a 'residential detox' there would be a zoning violation.
