Science Doc • 6 hours agoO/T. Went by Narconon Warner Springs several times. Place is still running at ca. 50% of where it was consistently until five or six months ago. I couldn't connect with my best source in the area but talked with someone else I've met before who told me a good story. Some time ago patients at Narconon broke into one of the three wineries within short walking distance looking for a nice bender. The storage room they broke into contained a batch of wine that had gone bad in fairly remarkable way due to some undisclosed processing error. Science Doc suspects some bad microbiology would be necessary for wine to get condemned and locked up for further testing. Anyhow they carted the whole load back to Narconon and reportedly became quite sick. This incident sharply polarized the vintners along highway 79 against Narconon.
There doesn't seem to be a Narconon Fresh Start thread, so I'll leave this here...www.drugrehab.com, which Narconon Fresh Start / Narconon Southern California has owned since 1997 and it's the one on their Form 990s, has sold/transferred the domain to some Florida rehab group. (I'll check them.)That seems very odd. Their next Form 990 should hit at the end of November.Their Rainbow Canyon location's website is gone too: www.rainbowcanyonretreat.org

Hi, I'm so glad I found this forum and I read this thread with interest. I write for a website that has rehab reviews and a rehab directory which provides advertising revenue through purchased "enhanced listings" etc. Recently someone affiliated with Elevate Addiction Services at 262 Gaffey Rd, Watsonville, CA contacted our advertising department and asked that we remove all listings for Narconon at that address. They said that they purchased the facility from a former owner and have absolutely nothing to do with Narconon. They do not use the same methods and want Elevate to be the only listing at that address. Now they want to begin the review process, which is how I got involved. Unlike our advertising department, I was immediately suspicious and started searching and that's how I found this blog. I want to make the case to my boss that if we do a review stating that Elevate is not affiliated with Narconon, we will be misleading people and posting inaccurate and harmful information. I have bookmarked a lot of the links in this thread, but the wysk links never load or they give me errors. I am hoping that what I have will be sufficient. I have the pdf file "statement of information" which shows Halcyon Horizons as the corporation at the Gaffey Rd address (Found here after searching Halcyon Horizons), the Santa Cruz fictitious name statement showing Halcyon as the registrant of Elevate , and the other Santa Cruz statement showing Halcyon Horizons as the registrant of Narconon I'm hoping that will be sufficient, but if anyone has any other more direct ways I could present this evidence, I would appreciate it. Is there any working link that says that Narconon changed its name to Halcyon Horizons? The cached version is not showing up either. I will probably have to keep my explanation as short as possible, but I want to make sure that we either disclose the information or not get involved with them at all. I'm grateful for any advice. Thank you!
Thank you, these are both very helpful. I was hoping for an actual current link that basically says "Halcyon is the new name for Narconon" but I think there's enough info in these links to draw that conclusion. Is the IRS Exempt Organization info available in a database that I could search?
Mary - Thank you, I try. I just wish there was some indication which way the IRS is going to move under the new administration. It sounds strange, but at this point I'm almost afraid to send them anything new.
