Something else is also a bit off. Under the 'Reference Data' item #3, "Is the organization a subpart?" is answered 'N', and they have the Legal name as 'Narconon of Georgia' even though they are a subgroup of Narconon International.

Although they do show GEN 2595, they also use 'Narconon of Georgia, Inc' as the "Name of organization", rather than the "Doing business as" on their 2010 990 at: http://207.153.189.83/EINS/421534941/421534941_2010_07d67c1f.PDF

In spite of the fact the IRS EOA database shows NNGA with a legal name of 'Narconon International' DBA 'Narconon of Georgia': 421534941 NARCONON INT 5688 PEACHTREE PKWY NORCROSS GA 30092-2848 2595 03 9 NARCONON OF GEORGIA. '2595' is the Group Exemption number for Narconon Int and it's subordinate organizations. The '9' in front of "Narconon of Georgia" means this organization is subordinate to Narconon International.

And who the H@#*& at NN GA is trained to do Emergency Medicine??

So, I noticed the NN Georgia NPI registration info: http://www.hipaaspace.com/Medical_Billing/Coding/National_Provider_Identifier/Codes/NPI_1972760130.aspx
Their scope of practice is for rehab and emergency services. WTF? ???  The license in this section is their Georgia license 050724.

Just for reference, the codes are at: http://www.wpc-edi.com/reference/

That is very odd. Casey Locarnini, who was last listed as a medical director, has a specialty in Emergency Medicine. This wouldn't qualify Narconon of Georgia as an emergency services provider by any stretch of the imagination.

I imagine he's functioning much like Lisa Robbins did in conducting an initial medical evaluation on potential Narconon clients, or on follow-up for illness after admission. He runs an urgent care center in Dunwoody.

Dr. Locarnini is also mentioned on page 47 of this document:

Narconon wants to keep the records sealed in the Heather Landmeier case in Oklahoma too: http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php/topic,11449.0.html
There are a couple of court documents related to that, linked in that thread.

Nice.

Good to see this! Wilfried Handl is an important critic of Scientology and the front groups in Germany. He was a scientologist for 28 years, beginning at age 20.
http://www.ilsehruby.at/InterviewWilfriedHandlE.html

He's been interviewed by the media extensively in Germany. Here is a recent one in subtitles
[english subbed] Wilfried Handl im Interview über sich, Scientology und Anonymous

Thank you Wilfried.

Here is Mary Reiser accepting "first place outpatient clinic" at Narconon convention
March 2009 at 2:50 minutes on the youTube link below. (Up until her award is given, there are E.D. awards, Gary Smith, etc but the only audio is trumpet fanfare music.)

At 2:50 Mary says

I just want to tell everyone how much I appreciate being here.  I feel very helpful to hear some of these stories, um,  I am proud to be part of this group. Um, I'm not so proud to still be part of "outpatient" - I hope next year I'll be competing in another group like the the other ones, but, um thank you all very very much for all the hard work that everyone is doing.

All those videos, 223 of them from Narconon PSA (aka NN of Ga), between June 2008 and September 2009, and then it just stops.  I wonder why...

Where's BillyBob? The comment sections are open. Unless it's better to let sleeping dogs lie.


Vids begin six days before Patricks death. They run from Jun 5, 2008 to Sep 23, 2009.
The first one is Mary Reiser sending an "I love You" video response to Narconon Arrowhead.
