Pinwheels should fix it!

April is Child Abuse Awareness month and definitely a time to spotlight a problem such as this, making people aware that child trafficking is a huge problem and that everyone, every day of the year, needs to pay attention to Georgia’s future stars. The Church of Scientology in coordination with Interfaith Children’s Movement of Georgia and other like-minded groups and religious organizations utilize beautiful pinwheels to capture attention and bring awareness in order to help victims of abuse. With that in mind, a group of courageous children and young adults helped plant hundreds of pinwheels next to Roswell Rd. in Sandy Springs, Georgia where over 25,000 cars pass by daily. The kids want to get the word out and make Georgia very aware that they care about all the kids, of this great state.

I bet this went over like a lead balloon at Atlanta's Dogwood Festival. Deb Mackay admitted to a reporter that Scientology aims to garner attention through shock tactics.  @u@ooo

Scientology exhibit at Piedmont Park attacks psychiatry - 11alive

"Is there such a thing as ADHD? No," she said, adding that the message behind the exhibit "is of course right in line of the viewpoints of the Church of Scientology,"

ATLANTA -- If you go to Piedmont Park this weekend, you might see the Dogwood Festival. You might also see a rather shocking exhibit separate from the Dogwood Festival that is intended to debunk psychiatry and it’s supported by the Church of Scientology.

You’d have to wander out of the Dogwood Festival and into Magnolia Hall to find an exhibit darkly described as ‘psychiatry – industry of death.”

The exhibit fills the room with mostly vintage photographs of a variety of horrors – from Nazi Germany to images of what used to be called lunatic asylums.

Kimberly Poff is a hero. Although she paid a price, she can look at herself in the mirror every day. There are some OK officials who can't say that, I imagine. That is, if they care at all.

Kim Poff, finally free to speak: ‘I want this story out. I want people to know what Narconon did.’  Tony Ortega

We talked to Kimberly Poff yesterday, the former inspector general who recently won a $200,000 settlement which ended several years of litigation with the state of Oklahoma. We’ve been following Kim’s story since she was fired for acting as a whistleblower when she revealed that Oklahoma’s officials were afraid to take on the Church of Scientology. She had recommended that its flagship drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead, be shut down following three patient deaths in a nine-month period that culminated with the overdose death of 20-year-old Stacy Murphy in July 2012.

Kim filed a lawsuit against the state’s mental health authority for firing her. In the meantime, she got another job with the state’s Department of Human Services. But DHS also fired her after a news story came out about her whistleblowing, and so she filed a second lawsuit against DHS for that firing.

“The mental health lawsuit lasted for over a year, but we lost,” she points out. The settlement she just received was in relation to the second lawsuit, against DHS, which really had nothing directly to do with her Narconon investigation. “They fired me after finding out about my lawsuit against the other, sister agency."

Thanks, mefree :)

I checked out some of the more obvious possibilities ( life solutions program ) but all seem to be legit programs unrelated to Narconon except Elevate Recovery.

Amazing Anons are doing further digging on this... perhaps they will locate another Narconon program on the site

Narconon in Michigan / Re: Best Drug Rehabilitation

Narconon Freedom Center moved to a different location  505 Keefer Dr  Albion, MI 49224 sometime last year. I thought it was around Sept 2017
The change of address showed up in LARA in May 2017.

It's not a different location, just a different address for the same place.

I don't know about that, DH....  I confirmed last night, with the relative of the patient who went Narconon Freedom Center in the fall of 2017 at the 505 Keefer Dr location.

On the map, 505 Keefer Dr is the side entrance for 809 West Erie Street.

That program corporation remains active, It uses a different mailing address for the MI Sec of State...  PO Box 755, Albion, MI.  Not sure if you can see this doc from the LARA MI corp entity search  website: https://cofs.lara.state.mi.us/CorpWeb/CorpSearch/CorpSearchRedirector.aspx?Action=PDF&Path=CORP_LEGACY/D201710\2017282\E0960450.tif

Awakenings Rehabilitation was incorporated in Nevada in Jan 2017 but filed as a foreign corp in MI later in the year. 

In Nevada, iIt's 10/2017 annual report shows most of the officers at the 809 W Erie . This is standard for Per Wickstrom to do, file in MI as a foreign corp out of NV.  Not sure if you can see this NV Officers info doc. Click open.  https://nvsos.gov/sosentitysearch/PrintCorp.aspx?lx8nvq=NO2B2vvhI7KgUHURbpVWaQ%253d%253d

Keep in mind that Narconon Freedom Center has been under the direct management of ABLE ( and previously Narconon WUS, which is now defunct) for some years now. It was a problem Narconon. The family member who contacted me in late 2017 told me that upper management officials came in and took the place over ( direct bypass) after they received that disastrous inspection review.   Most likely is was a financial decision to move.

My experience tells me that the only Narconon programs that transition into unbranded ones are those owned and operated by people who started the program. Like the Mansions in Northern CA

I guess moe research needs to be done on these 2 programs
