I'll update the page as new documents come in.  Don't worry, though, I'll keep updating this thread too.

Yes.  There's nothing that hasn't been posted in this thread at one time or another, but it sure does look massive when they're listed all together, doesn't it.

2 Investigates: Patient death at Georgia Narconon

Quote
State Inspections
During an unannounced inspection in March, eight out of eight patients interviewed by state inspectors said they were in Narconon's "residential program." During a follow-up inspection in April, 21 out of 28 patients told inspectors they were residential. Two of those patients were under court orders and most were from out of state.

Fleischer asked Rieser why those patients would tell state inspectors they were in a residential program, if they were not.

"I wasn't there when they answered the question," Rieser replied. "These are not the most truthful people here.But I can promise you, somebody comes in, they sign several times that they know we're an outpatient (program)."

Now, more than four years after Patrick Desmond's death, Narconon's own website, still refers to the Georgia program as a "long-term residential facility."

"It breaks my heart. You send your child for help, and you think he's going to be cared for. But he wasn't cared for. He was just left to his own devices," Colleen Desmond said. "I feel the whole place was a total fake scam."

((HUGGS)) and thanks to Mrs. Desmond {O\O} for speaking out, painful as I know it must have been.

Lucas, thank you for everything you are doing.  You are a true blue legitimate hero.

Not hardly, but thank you.  I'm only playing one tiny part in the whole scheme of trying to get the truth out there, after many years of having my own eyes and ears closed.

Yes YesYes!

 WSB reporter to Mary Rieser, Ms Rieser have you ever claimed to be a "Residential treatment facility", then a computer screen grab of a Narconon of Georgia website stating that in fact yes, it claims to be a residential treatment facility.

 Then a quick cut to Lisa Mooty of the Brevard Co, FLA drug courts and her video deposition. Quote Ms. Mooty. Yes, Mary Rieser stated that Narconon of Georgia is a "Residential treatment facility".

 Then another quick cut to Randy Taylor of Tennessee whose son was also enrolled in Narconon of Georgia at the time Patrick Desmond passed. In a video deposition, Mr. Taylor stated that YES Mary Rieser claimed Narconon of Georgia was a "Residential treatment facility".

 Who would YOU believe? A Scientologist incapable of telling the truth or a member of the courts or a private citizen looking for help with his sons addiction?

 ::)

 I was very touched by Ms. Desmonds statements. Ms. Desmond you have my greatest respect! Then to watch as the executive director of Narconon of Georgia Mary Rieser belittle those that she claims to be helping.

 I cannot wait to see the state of Georgia,s Department of Community Health taken to task over this whole sad affair. Had the DCH done its duty years ago, IMHO Patrick Desmond would still be with us today!

 Though happy to finally see something happening here, PLEASE REMEMBER AT THIS VERY MOMENT MARY RIESER AND HER LITTLE GANG ARE HOUSING YOUNG VULNERABLE PEOPLE at the BERKLEY LANDING APARTMENT COMPLEX in DULUTH GEORGIA and the states DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHCARE FACILITY REGULATIONS is FULLY AWARE OF THIS FACT AND DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

 God only knows what horrors are transpiring there!

I agree, Luke!  And I wish Allison Riepe would come on the forum and talk to us, too!

I can't wait to "See what happened when we grilled the head of the Department of Community Health about it, and why he's now decided to open a new investigation, Tuesday at 5."  ;D
They brushed complaints aside and hopefully have learned the errors of their ways (publicity hurts when you are not doing a good job).
