Hi webactivism, sorry for the lag in response. This is terrific news. Do you know what the annual fees for domain & privacy are for renewal on it? I may have someone....

FYI, all the DMCA & fake court order stuff I wrote about earlier and we discussed here are back up at Lumendatabase.org with no notation of being 'under review' as of last mention here. Is there anything I can do to get them removed?


There's no fee involved at all. The domain and hosting is provided by webactivism for no charges. We are reimbursed by nearly a dozen free-speech hosting services and orgs :) http://www.webactivism.com/solutions/ . The website (domain and lifetime hosting) is yours if you want it.

All the fake DMCAs and Court Orders have been reviewed ans rejected already. We worked wiht Eugene Volokh and Paul Alan Levy to ensure that none of the fraudulent DMCAs were accepted. The few that slipped through were for RipoffReport.com which we worked around with the website owner http://www.webactivism.com/ripoff-report-wipes-google-removals-stroke-of-genius/ .

Cheers !

We do not know who ran narcononisscientology.com, but knew that it was important enough for few powerful people to file fake DMCAs against.

So we're keeping it alive as a permanent record on the internet. If you or anyone else wish to (anonymously) take control of the website, plz let us know. Either ways, we'll upload it soon and let it be (ensuring 100% uptime, ofcourse)

[update] - one of our volunteers has put up www.narcononisscientology.com back online again, with as many articles as she could find from archives and cache. It is as close to the original as possibly can.

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...

Michigan licensing just dropped Narconon Freedom Center's Residential Detox from their list of programs. Normally it should have been fine until renewal in July.

No new files added to their record yet.

Hope this is good news :) I'll look into it. Thanks!

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!

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.


BBB page shows that Halcyon is the corporate name of this BBB is states Narconon Northern California is one of the alternate names for the company under one of their Halcyon Horizon, Inc's fictitious names: Elevate Addiction Services

Elevate Addiction Services
BBB File Opened: 08/28/2000
Business Started: 10/01/1990
Business Incorporated: 10/15/1990
https://www.bbb.org/losangelessiliconvalley/business-reviews/rehabilitation-services/elevate-addiction-services-in-watsonville-ca-211464

The blue Website button link refers one to a now dead site, one of their previous fictitious names, Vista Bay .http://www.vistabay.com/

If you search BB for Narconon Northern California, they take you to a link for their Elevate Addiction Services page

The National Center for Charitable Statistics hosted at the Urban League website has the Halcyon Horizons, Inc profile and most current and previously filed & received corporate tax returns       (2002-2014) same EIN at this page. Prior to 2014, the name was Narconon Northern California, which you will see on the p[ast returns available here :

BigBeard!! thank you so much for all you do, to research and keep us and the public informed, regarding Narconon's tax exemption information, etc  You have posted very good information here in this and other threads here.

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.

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.
