I remember reading about scientology purchasing the Larry Hagman Ojai estate over a year ago. There was some speculation at the time about it being a Narconon. Thanks for the pics.

Thanks, Rod. 

None of the Narconons will EVER be ideal until they institute a safe and effective program instead of that L. Ron Hubbard scientology hogwash they currently use.

Scientology is turning Larry Hagman’s house into a drunk tank for celebs

Not very good form from a journalistic perspective. Using an old phrase like " DRUNK TANK" lends itself to something derogatory at the expense of those that may suffer for an addiction!

If they're officially asking for 6, I suspect within a year there will actually be 12 to 18 if this goes through. Note the bit about converting the gym into two saunas. Business as usual.

They are also adding 2 US continental 'Ideal Narconon "  aka training centers. I wrote about one here:
Narconon Trout Run in Maryland ( marketed as in DC but no where near DC)
http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php?topic=12793.0

Back in July 2013, attorney Jeff Harris, of the famous Desmond v Narconon of Georgia  et al case, used this IAS Grant Newsletter page as Exhibit T in the Burgess  et al v. Narconon of Georgia, Narconon Int et al case, listing and detailing each location. There are 9 in total. The one in the photo is of the property they bought for the Narconon DC (Narconon Trout Run) which is in Thurmont, MD, which is in Frederick County. About 130 miles from Washington, DC

Any word on that front, or could that be part of why they are obviously looking at going the "faith based" route? Even though going "faith based" is pretty much going to throw existing NN's with current law suits under the bus for claiming to be "secular".

I think something must have happened to derail the Maryland site, but I don't know what that would be. DM was more hyped up about this than any other Narconon. "In our nation's capital." Which it isn't, but whatever. They need a CNN in EUS to complete this plan. It could be Maryland, it could be Clearwater, or it could be some new location. I doubt it will be Georgia.

Perhaps something did happen. I have to call the state and se if they applied and got turned down. The program certainly doesn't qualify, nor do the counselors in Maryland but they do waive certain exceptions... Will try to do this today or by tomorrow.

Yes, it would be good for medic attention there. Just need to get more details to confirm or not if they are operating. They are certainly promoting it to Scientologists, via the DC OT Committee news.

If I recall right, there's no way they would be able to meet the state licensing requirements for a legitimate rehab. Might be why they're looking at possibly going the "faith based" route down the road.

Yes, I agree. They would never qualify. I think I previously noted that and the requirements.

I and others have been bringing up this faith based possibility for some time now, based upon speculation and later insider tips for over 3 years.  Some states allow faith-based groups to provide these services without  license... like people would 'donate' the fee as insurance would not cover these, to my knowledge.  In June of 2013, Oklahoma, Senator Ivester SB 295 bill was passed and signed by the Gov . It was committee amended 2x before being passed along step by step but Gov approved it. The net result was that faith based programs of 12 or less patients won't need certification. Already in OK anyone can open up a half-way house with 6 max on residents with no certification. See this informative bunch of posts by Communicator I/C posts 23 on down the page and so forth
http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?36134-OKLAHOMA-EMPANELS-GRAND-JURY-TO-INVESTIGATE-SCIENTOLOGY%92S-DRUG-REHAB/page3


So, most don't don't require certification if under a limited # of patients in some states and in others, faith based require none. CA sober living companies have an association that sets acceptable standards on that state industry and do a fairly good job of keeping things professional there, but most state sober living facilities are lacking oversight of any kind.

The bill started out stating this
STATE OF OKLAHOMA
1st Session of the 54th Legislature (2013)
SENATE BILL 295 By: Ivester
AS INTRODUCED
An Act relating to mental health; amending 43A O.S.
2011, Section 3-415, which relates to certification
of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities;
including recovery support facilities in certain
definitions; excluding certain faith-based and
residential recovery facilities from the Oklahoma
Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services Act; and providing an
effective date.
....
http://www.oklegislature.gov/BillInfo.aspx?Bill=sb295&Session=1300

It was amended a couple of times along the way by committees.
http://www.oklegislature.gov/BillInfo.aspx?Bill=sb295&Session=1300

Here is the final bill
http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/cf_pdf/2013-14%20ENR/SB/SB295%20ENR.PDF
http://legiscan.com/OK/bill/SB295/2013

Details of the history and docs can be found at one or both of these links
http://legiscan.com/OK/bill/SB295/2013
http://www.oklegislature.gov/BillInfo.aspx?Bill=sb295&Session=1300

So we can see that Narconon seems to have taken a cue from the Ivester bill and multi-state laws on low number houses instead of regulated facilities...: Some states are more detailed in what can be done at these type of facilities/homes, than others. Narconons, like Spring Hill/Suncoast, are going for 'sober living ' or 'half-way houses'/homes... no licensing or certification required in probably all states...even Arrowhead is doing it 
http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?36134-OKLAHOMA-EMPANELS-GRAND-JURY-TO-INVESTIGATE-SCIENTOLOGY%92S-DRUG-REHAB&p=955990&viewfull=1#post955990

The intention is to become Faith Based, and even call itself a Faith Based Program.   
Quote
But (attorney David) Miller has been watching Hamilton’s lawsuits, and he refers to a recent pleading in which Narconon’s own attorneys referred to it as a “faith-based program.”

Busted.

The problem I see with NN going "faith based" at this point is they would essentially be admitting to committing fraud with the "secular" claims they've been making all along up to this point. Of course it, if they go with the, "They weren't following our directions." claim, it wouldn't be the first time DM & Co. has thrown it's own under the bus.

Which it isn't, but whatever. They need a CNN in EUS to complete this plan. It could be Maryland, it could be Clearwater, or it could be some new location. I doubt it will be Georgia.

Just an update here. I spoke with Ms. Doris Williams of the compliance section of the Maryland the Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene Office of Health Care Quality at the Substance abuse licensing unit. She told me that she wouldn't be able to know if an application was in progress because a different department handles that but she could look up to see if they received a license. I gave her the name and address of the property. She looked on her computer system and stated that there is is definitely no facility licensed under the name Narconon in the state of Maryland. She stated that there is only 1 licensed program in Thurmont, MD, operated by Catoctin Counseling Centers located at 112 E. MAIN St. She said they they have been licensed for many years and deliver only outpatient rehab, as well as a running a licensed DWI Early Intervention Education Class.

I checked out Catoctin Counseling Centers website. They have 4 facilities in MD, Thurmont being their oldest, and have been in business for  '20 years' It's clear to me that they are unrelated to Narconon Trout Run, whose property is located at 12929 CATOCTIN HOLLOW Rd.

I explained to Ms. Williams my concerns that they might be operating illegally, that they are promoting the program to certain people as a new facility. It's not clear from the written informatio if it's upcoming or already operating.  That they bought a $4.5 million dollar property last year to run the program and that they are also calling it Narconon D.C. as well. I stated that they  have purchased some websites that contain the name the name Narconon trout Run but these are currently inactive / parked.  I asked what should one do if it is found that Trout Run is advertising for patients or found to be operating as a facility without a license. She said to definitely report it via the complaint system with as many details as possible. She then gave me the site link where one can file a complaint online, or print out a form and email it or send it in by mail. Here is what the page says:
