Over on OCMB the other day, a poster named redcup posted on OCMB the following plea:

"I have an immediate emergency situation. My sons dear friend was dragged to Narconon in Albion MI under false pretenses and duress. Scientology people drove to Delaware and picked her up. She called us crying and she was forced to hang up. Her mother put her in there and we are afraid for her life! Her mother said she is in there under a court order. We cannot find any evidence of a court
order. We looked up our local court records and there is no order for drug treatment. We informed the mother of the dangers and she doesn't care. Please help us. How do we get her out of there legally. She is 18 years of age. I have read of the dangers of the Narconon facilities and the deaths from
their "treatment" . This young lady is 93 pound and 5'. There is no way she could physically tolerate what they are going to put her through..Please help us!

Thank you "

Some back channel work by posters there let to the determination that she was not there by court order and needed help:

Over at Facebook there is a group called SPs 'r' US ( a fun group for critics of scientology who are labeled or would be labeled by Scientology as SPs ( Suppressive Persons ) for offences the church deems bad to them, such as speaking up against the organization and it's front groups, like Narconon). To se the group, one must be logged in : http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/325785144156523/members/

The info regarding the girl at Narconon Freedom Center in Michigan made it's way to that group.

Here is what happened next:

"Call me (818) 588-3044---The person who called said it's awful there, the kid called and wants to get OUT of there. She's 18--and the lady who called has a place for her to go. Let me know, please."

"She's OUT! And the police escorted her out and said: "You're doing the right thing getting out of here!" Good info, Gary. This was not ordered by the court, and SHE asked to leave. ♥ ♥ YAH!"

"I've got a photo of them over on my FB page! I just don't know how to put it here. (Duh!) :) Great photo :) "

"Any Narconon Staff or public who want out, please give me a call: (818) 588-3044. ♥"

Garry Scarff aka Smurf posted on redcap's OMCB thread, the photo and the following comment:

[..] The police officer in Albion reportedly told Ashley, "You are doing the right thing by leaving this place." [..]

Thank you to all who helped. Readers should know that it is important to plan things before one is taken out of a Narconon facility. I hope that this young lady is getting followup care for her addiction and that others contact us here or Tory Christman for help when a similar situation arises.

If there was no court order, and this young lady is legally an adult, I seriously hope Federal (state lines were crossed) kidnapping charges will be filed. NarCONon can't keep getting away with holding people against their will like this.

She also posted a reply to someone asking if they got the girl into rehab:

I won't go into details now, but will tell you as soon as it is
appropriate. It is not yet.

Thanks for all of your care, and concern. She is doing
quite well and is safely out of Narconon with a place to go to.

My best,

Tory/Magoo
