I really wish the state level licensing entities would at least include the Federal EIN information in their records for nonprofits. It would make it a lot easier to keep straight who's really who.

For what it's worth, I just checked, and the IRS Pub78 Exempt Organization database last updated 9/9/14 still shows them as:

EIN: 770275827
NARCONON INTERNATIONAL
262 GAFFEY RD
WATSONVILLE CA 95076-9731
GEN: 2595
STATUS: 03 (501(c)3 Exempt)
AFFILIATION: 9 (Subordinate Organization in Group)
RULING DATE: 197501
DBA: NARCONON OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

It will be interesting to see if the name change shows up on their next Form 990. And if so, if they'll still be claiming to be part of the 2595 NN Int Group Exemption.

How bizarre that the new name, Halcyon, is a homonym for a form of benzodiazepine, Halcion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triazolam).  Whatever could they have been thinking??

I'm sure they were thinking about the meaning of the word, but still an odd choice.

“They recently closed one of their three centers, in Placerville, because they were not getting enough business and were starting to lose money. They had also tried to re-brand from ‘Narconon Vista Bay’ to ‘Emerald Pines,’ ‘Pinecone Grove’ and ‘Redwood Cliffs.’ This clearly didn’t work, as they still had the Narconon name. Now word has emerged from multiple sources that they have left the Narconon network altogether to do something different. Their Narconon-branded websites are down in maintenance mode, and their new site is elevaterehab.org.”
elevaterehab.org claims to be Elevate Addiction Services, but that's just a FBN for Halcyon.

What is it about these people that makes them constantly lie and try to hide who they are?? If they had been up front about being a "faith based" program, hadn't made those rediculous success claims, and refunded peoples money if they decided it wasn't right for them, nobody would be looking to bulldoze them into the ground. And a lot of people who died would still be alive.

They're used to the old days when they had a few years of grace hiding behind a new name before the pieces were put together.

Now, with Narconon-tracking sites established, it's not much work to re-lock on the new names.

Thanks, DeathHamster!  I archived the elevaterehab.org site pages before I saw your post, but not the others urls. I have so little time this week to do the others, perhaps someone else can? Archiving helps in lawsuits to isolate what the site claims at time of contact. The Internet Archive is often used as exhibits in legal complaints to capture false statements or omissions.

BTW, Elevate Rehab is a Fictitious Name aka dba, along with other variations, all registered by Halcyon Horizons, Incorporated.  I also checked the state corporate records. There is no name legal change from this Narconon set of programs yet.

In Sept 2015 Halcyon Horizons Inc registered  7 fictitious name registrations using the word Elevate. There is no corporate change for these northern ca facilities. I also received a tip last year that they were closing one of the program locations but it was due to financial and consolidating locations issues. They are still Halcyon Horizons, Inc f/k/a Narconon Northern California, under the same corporation and tax id's, filing same returns with new name Horizon.

They have a variety of different fictitious names and began changing them to new names because of the Vista Bay lawsuits. Last year sometime, they closed and replaced one of the Placerville locations by moving over to and opening a new site ( using their finance building) and calling it Redwood Cliffs. That is one of the DBAs registered

These are filed with the Santa Cruz County business dept where they file fictitious names.  They also operate in other counties in Northern Ca  area, s there are other names of facilities but not registered here in this county database. We have a list of names and locations on Narconon Reviews for those locations that have complaints against them, for which we have a copy posted)

One can search for both names but Halcyon Horizons, Inc is the current registrant for all in Santa Cruz Co

The new elevaterehab.org website shows a program with components that are very different than what a Narconon is allowed to provide, including statements implying real ability to discuss drug issues in group and 1:1 therapy and use of psychiatric medications to help taper one to withdraw from opiates and heroin. 

Of course, Narconon is still mentioned at their Redwood Cliffs' sites
http://www.redwoodcliffsrehab.com/
and at NN Int's Narconon . org site
http :// www. narconon .org /drug-rehab/centers/narconon-redwood-cliffs .html )

However, a Google search of keywords Narconon Redwood Cliffs shows a website link and a google maps listing link and advertisement for Elevate Addiction Services at the top. The title is hyperlinked to the elevaterehab .org site. too

Not sure yet what that is all about but it's interesting, lol

I am updating and recaping what we know on Halcyon Horizons Incorporated in this post, as I am linking it to other sites discussing the recent articles by Tony Ortega and whether or not it's really true:

Confirmed- Narconon;s Entire Northern California Network Splits with Scientology
http://tonyortega.org/2015/12/28/confirmed-narconons-entire-northern-california-network-splits-with-scientology/ (http://tonyortega.org/2015/12/28/confirmed-narconons-entire-northern-california-network-splits-with-scientology/)

Narconon is dead, long live Narconon! How Scientology Solved it's drug rehab addiction
http://tonyortega.org/2015/11/10/narconon-is-dead-long-live-narconon-how-scientology-solved-its-drug-rehab-addiction/comment-page-1/ (http://tonyortega.org/2015/11/10/narconon-is-dead-long-live-narconon-how-scientology-solved-its-drug-rehab-addiction/comment-page-1/)

I personally do not believe they have left the network at all.  I don't think it's a different program at all. Just more name changes and Narconon's recent propaganda that they have changed, improved the program because the internet and the lawsuits are killing them one by one. As I have posted elsewhere,

'I have my doubts on this. Big ones. I saw a similar thing back when Per Wickstrom's Narconon Stone Hawk facility in MI had it's license with Narconon Int cancelled. Turns out they were just in cahoots together to stop Per's ex-wife, co-owner Kathleen Wickstrom, from getting her share and other monies he owed her. She sued Per and NN Int when  she figured out the scam they concocted, after he stopped making payments to her per the divorce by claiming he was broke because of the license cancellation.

Meantime, he set up A Forever Recovery, which he also  claimed to not use Narconon when it does. We call these programs unbranded Narconons. Per has 3 of them now, all serving Narconon and Scientology under the cover of supposedly using other methods they never deliver.  Almost all the exec at Halcyon Horizons f/k/a Narconon Northern California are scientologists. They have an org up there they flow people and staff to for services. I suspect they did this to avoid Narconon Int from being included in any more lawsuits. Just another layer of corporate veils.
'

How Narconon Northern California ( doing business as a multitude of names like Vista Bay, then became Halcyon Horizons Incorporated and began using dba's like Redwood Cliffs, and now ELEVATE REHAB and other variations on that name: 

Narconon Northern California changed it's name to Halcyon Horizons Incorporated. Here are some details now not all available which I located at wysk.com regarding the name change from Narconon Northern California to Halcyon Horizons Incorporated and posted back in Nov 2015:

All links to their previous sites, like Redwood Cliffs and vista bay are all being referred to their Elevate domain as previously listed by DeathHamster. I archived their site Elevate.org on the way back machine
https://web.archive.org/web/20151111063704/http://elevaterehab.org/

I am looking further into all this but for now, I am not convinced.  To me it's just another attempt to hide as an unbranded Narconon program like Wickstrom's Best Drug Rehabilitation, A Forever recovery and Serenity Point Rehab.

Your thoughts are appreciated

Title: Re: Narconon Northern California changes name to Halcyon Horizons (was Re: Lawsuits against Narconon
Post by: BigBeard on December 30, 2015, 19:38
A there are several things that have me skeptical of any real change:

1. In Sep 2014 the IRS Form 1023 changing their status from being part of the NN Int Group Exemption (GEN 2595) to a stand alone Exempt Organization (GEN 0000) was finalized. As part of that change, Halcyon/NNNC's Employer Identification Number (EIN) stayed the same, which means there was no change in ownership. And, more importantly, there was no change to their charter with the California Secretary of State. A change to the charter would have triggered a requirement for a new EIN, and I find it hard to believe it wouldn't change if they've completely broken with narCONon.

2. There's been no mention of the owners, or staff, leaving $cientology, voluntarily or otherwise. If they have broken with narCONon on their own hook, without making some arrangement with Miscavige, he would have had the SP declares hand delivered by the driver of the same truck that came to pick up all the "licensed" materials.

3. All the hoopla seems to be focused on Attorney John Hannon being told there would be no more license fees going to ABLE and NN Int. I'll bet nothing was said about Halcyon Horizons becoming a member company of WISE, or no "donations" going to the IAS. Which would still keep the money flowing to $cientology, while cutting the ABLE/NN Int connection. And keep any SP declares from falling on everyone involved.

4. The same people involved with the unreported death at NN Watsonville back in 2010 Daniel Manson, his wife Angie Manson, and Nathan Tuddernham are still there, and still $cientologists in good standing at last check. http://tonyortega.org/2014/09/11/scientologys-drug-rehab-system-was-investigated-for-a-2011-california-death/

So I'm not joining any parties over this "change", if it really is one, until we've seen some 990's for 2014 and 2014 to see where the money's going. And hopefully getting some current reviews on what's actually happening on the ground since this claimed change.

Your #4 item is what initially had me on the fence, BigBeard.

In some ways, Elevate is reminiscent of Per Wickstrom's unbranded Narconons, which are promoted as holistic, but there are differences if we can believe the advertising.  M-|V|-M  I can't think of a Narconon, branded or unbranded, that has an addictionologist on board.

Keep in mind, no name is provided for said addictionologist.

Quote
The Elevate program is facilitated by our skilled team of nurturing and compassionate staff. Clients are overseen by a medical doctor who is an addictionologist and specialized in addiction medicine for over 30 years. Treatment planning and delivery is guided by state-certified counselors and overseen by a licensed therapist. The program was designed and reviewed by professionals in the addiction field with decades of experience. Newer staff may be currently undergoing education and internships to achieve a credential. Regardless of the role, clients of Elevate Addiction Services can be assured that the utmost care is taken to ensure the highest chance of success.

Other new concepts, if true:

Quote
Discharge Planning and 6 Months of Aftercare

Before you leave our rehab facility, the client and staff will develop a customized relapse prevention and discharge plan which will address challenges and situations that may occur outside the facility and could affect one's sobriety. This plan will revolve around your individual needs and help to overcome triggers, deal with daily life problems and avoid a relapse.

Additionally, our clients who successfully graduate the Elevate program will receive 6 months of aftercare. Prior to leaving, clients will schedule their call-in time where they can talk about any challenges, issues and progress made. These sessions will be held once a week via phone, with both the graduate and staff referring to the discharge plan. This service is provided only to clients who complete the entire program.

Quote
Family Sessions

Whether a husband, wife, partner, mother, father, son or daughter, we encourage all family members to be involved in the recovery of an addict. Family sessions play a key role into helping an individual reach long term sobriety. This is a time which helps and client loved ones to discuss and work through any issues, establish better communication skills and begin to repair the overall relationship. Our counselor will give examples of co-dependency or enabling to ensure these are avoided or that healthy solutions are used to break these unhealthy cycles.

From the moment we begin working the client, we will start to offer support and assistance to everyone involved. Our ultimate goal is to help the client and the family to rebuild their lives in a practical, manageable and successful approach. Family sessions will typically occur 2-4 times per month via phone. However, we also allow family workshop sessions to be held directly held at the Elevate facilities. There is an extra charge for this service; please contact us for more information on this.

Of course, there are similarities dressed up in different language:
Quote
Vocational Training and Internship
Some Graduates are accepted for a Trainee Program at Elevate.

Quote
Nutrition and Supplements
How we restore the body’s natural functions through the healing power of nutrition.

No sauna, unless I missed it!

California Residential & Outpatient Licensed and/or Certified Facilities List (12/1/15)
http://www.dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/Documents/Status_Report_December_2015.pdf
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

Hubbard admin tech and Narconon "training" are a corporate culture level 4 bio-hazard. They can't just turn it off and decide not to be a Narconon and Scientology any more.

I think the "boutique" idea is someone's outside interpretation of Scientology's actions rather than a real leak of their plans. The smaller scale is easier to try to jam into zoning holes as "group homes", and if they can cut the visible legal ties to the mothership, each one can run until they kill or main someone without dragging down the whole pyramid.

I think this is at most a surface change to slow down the formula lawsuits against Narconon than any real change, and the websites don't mention saunas because they did a search and delete in the text, not because they removed the actual saunas.

This one has changed its address.

In February 2015 it was listed as 262 Gaffey Road, Watsonville, CA. (same as Halcyon)

9C Marea Avenue, La Selva Beach, CA, 95076, USA sure doesn't look like a location that could handle 49 people! Shouldn't there have been a whole new facility review before they could change their location??

Noticed that Daniel Manson has trademarked the name and logo of Elevate Addiction Services, as an individual and not a corporation.
Also another addiction treatment services company name: Your Life is Waiting for You.

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!

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.

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 (http://umbraxenu.no-ip.biz/mediawiki/index.php/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.

Clearly, many of the google reviews of Per Wickstrom's rehabs are fake. When checking a reviewer's history it's common to see their only other reviews are for other Wickstrom rehabs. Of course, they're all favorable.  Nothing new or surprising here. What's interesting is that some of those reviewers also wrote similar reviews for Elevate Addiction Services.  For example, one particular reviewer wrote reviews for four of Wickstrom's Michigan rehabs, one for Elevate Addiction Services in California, and none for any other business. Just thought this link between two similar rehab systems was worth noting.

Ha! Except that they don't seem to have it settled yet.

The latest update changed all the location Total Occupancy numbers to 49, the old number for the whole license. I'm not sure what it means, but the code that's converting from the main db to the CHHS one is probably being tweaked.

Just need to wait and watch, I guess.

"AuxiCare employs one or all of the following evidence-based methods to treat addiction:
 
Assessments and Treatment Planning - Success starts from Day 1 with correct assessments and attainable goals set.
Necessary Medical Treatment - Detoxification and Residential Care to allow a stable withdrawal from drugs and alcohol.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - Assisting the addict in becoming more aware of their role in their environment.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy - Journaling and Reflection that helps stabilize and support positive thoughts and actions.
Individualized One-on-One Counseling Sessions - A certified professional will help address individual issues.
Focused Group Therapy that Empowers People - Non-Judgemental groups help reinforce healthy living.
Complementary Methods - Proper Nutrition and Exercise, Sober Living, Life Planning, Vocational Training, Social Skills and more help complement the medical treatment for a well-rounded approach to overcoming addiction."

The physicians listed are Lance Thompson, Charles Smith and Megan Charles. No physician's license is found for Lance Thompson or Megan Charles in CA. Not surprisingly, there are several listings for the common name of Charles Smith. Nice looking bunch of model types on the website.  O-\eh?

Since Narconon Fresh Start doesn't seem to have rehab licenses for its Huntington Harbor House (possibly closed) and Sunshine Summit Lodge (definitely still open) locations, is it possible that they've found some loophole in California to avoid the need for one?

We know that they've been looking into that (e.g. "halfway houses").

As expected, Sunshine Summit Lodge joined Huntington Harbor House down the license crapper of non-existence. Expired since April and now gone from the CHHS system.

ScienceDoc posted something on The Bunker probably July 2nd (I was camping) that definitely seemed like they were folding that tent.

I guess they realized that the Narconon system doesn't work nad is dangerous, Hubbard was a fraud, a sex and drugs corporate culture were only some of their problems, and they've closed up, quit Scientology, and gone off to do something better with their lives.

Ha.

Science Doc • 6 hours ago

O/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.
Since Sunshine Summit Lodge doesn't have a rehab license, I wonder what they're still open as?

Time to check that address again.

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.

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 (https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov) after searching Halcyon Horizons), the Santa Cruz fictitious name statement showing Halcyon as the registrant of Elevate (http://sccounty01.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/clerkrecorder/Asp/FBNDocDetail.asp?DocID=2015-0001713) , and the other Santa Cruz statement showing Halcyon Horizons as the registrant of Narconon (http://sccounty01.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/clerkrecorder/Asp/FBNDocDetail.asp?DocID=2014-0001041)

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!

All of the California rehab licenses for their locations are in the name of HALCYON HORIZONS, INCORPORATED, formerly named Narconon Northern California. The program name is Elevate Addiction Services, but California thankfully insists on the legal name for the corporation.

To add to that, the IRS Exempt Organization listing shows what they did back in December 2014.

This is the November lisiting, showing NN Northern California was a subordinate organization to NN International, and had tax exemption through NN Int's group exemption (GEN: 2595). Note the 'Employer Identification Number (EIN):

11/08/14
EIN: 770275827
NARCONON INTERNATIONAL
262 GAFFEY RD
WATSONVILLE CA 95076-9731
GEN: 2595 (Part of NN Int Group Exemption)
03 (501c3 Tax Exempt)
9 (Subordinate Organization)
DBA: NARCONON OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

In December 2014 they were approved for a tax emption in their own right, and dropped out of the NN Int group exemption. Which is why the GEN changed to '0000'. They also changed the corporate name to 'Halcyon Horizons', but note the EIN stayed exactly the same. This means the corporation stayed exactly the same, but with a new name. If 'Halcyon Horizons' was a completely new corporation, a new EIN would have been assigned. EIN's are never transferred from one corporation to another. All that happened here is a corporate name change when they received their own tax exempt status.

12/08/14
EIN: 770275827
HALCYON HORIZONS INCORPORATED
262 GAFFEY RD

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?

Yes. The Exempt Organizations Business Master File Extract (EO BMF) is available here: https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/exempt-organizations-business-master-file-extract-eo-bmf  This is to download the current files. I've been downloading and saving them for several years now. Which is how I was able to provide the historical information.

You can also access historical information on their IRS Form 990 filings using their EIN on the Economic Research Institute 'Advance Search' page: http://www.eri-nonprofit-salaries.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=NPO.Search&SearchType=Advanced&CobrandID=0

Which brings you here: http://www.eri-nonprofit-salaries.com/index.cfm?FuseAction=NPO.Summary&EIN=770275827&BMF=1&Cobrandid=0&Syndicate=No  Note the aliases listed with the IRS.

As I mentioned earlier, the key is EIN's are unique to a corporation. The IRS never changes the EIN of an existing corporation, even if it changes names. If "Halcyon Horizons" really was a completely new corporation, never affiliated with narCONon, they would have been assigned a new, and different, EIN.

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 (https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov) after searching Halcyon Horizons), the Santa Cruz fictitious name statement showing Halcyon as the registrant of Elevate (http://sccounty01.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/clerkrecorder/Asp/FBNDocDetail.asp?DocID=2015-0001713) , and the other Santa Cruz statement showing Halcyon Horizons as the registrant of Narconon (http://sccounty01.co.santa-cruz.ca.us/clerkrecorder/Asp/FBNDocDetail.asp?DocID=2014-0001041)

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!

Welcome!! See my reply below

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?

Hi mia_s! Thanks for asking this. BigBeard is correct. They are using the same Employer Tax Identification (EIN) number.

The best resource links to use to support this connection are the at BBB & Narconon Reviews.

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.

Sorry for the belated reply. You are welcome, BigBeard! And yes, I wish we knew more on that, as well. But don't fear reporting anything... Truth prevails...
