I predict it passes easily.  The folks in OK are sick of this disgrace of an institution infecting their state.

I'm sure, especially since it was unanimous in the Senate first.

Side note - Narconon Arrowhead still has its 21-minute program video on its website (narcononarrowhead[dot]org).  The majority of the staff/students interviewed used for that video that was made in 2001 have either relapsed (some multiple times) and/or are no longer supporters of the program.  At least one died of an overdose.  Just another example how it's all about the PR, not about the truth.  I see they also just put up a new disclaimer last week.

I expect it to pass with ease, but I wouldn't be surprised of an attempt to get it back in committee.

Bill regulating Narconon Arrowhead headed to Gov. Fallins desk - Mcalester News Capital
1 May 2013, 4:16 pm
By Jeanne LeFlore Staff Writer

McALESTER — Legislation regulating Narconon Arrowhead and other drug rehabs is headed to the governors desk and could be signed into law this month.

Senate Bill 295 co-authored by a Senate Democrat Tom Ivester D- Sayer and House Republican Jason Murphey R- Guthrie passed the Senate unopposed with a the final vote at 43-0.

The legislation was written after an investigation into a string of deaths occurred within months of each other at Narconon Arrowhead.

Narconon Arrowhead is a non-profit drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Canadian affiliated with the Church of Scientology.

The bill orginally passed the Senate unopposed in February. Then in April the legislation passed the House Public Health Committee 9 to 1 with an amendment.

 The amended legislation went on to pass the  House 80 to 13. The final Senate vote was today, now it will be presented to Gov. Mary Fallin for signing.

Today Ivester said he wrote the bill because of the number of deaths.

 “It was the repeated deaths,” Ivester said. “That’s what did it for me".

 "That, and that nothing was being done legislatively about it.

He said the legislation will force drug rehabs such as Narconon Arrowhead to be certified by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Heath and Substance Abuse, giving state will have oversight of the facility.

Narconon Arrowhead has faced a number of lawsuits and was under a multi-agency investigation since the July death of Stacy Dawn Murphy, 20, of Owasso.

The case was by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, the Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office and the Department of Mental Health.

 After Murphy’s death the investigation expanded into the 2012 deaths of two others found dead at the facility. All three deaths occurred within months of each other.

Hillary Holten, 21, was found dead in April of 2012 and Gabriel Graves, 32, was found dead at the facility in October of 2011.

Also under investigation is the 2009 death of Kaysie Dianne Werninck, 28.

Werninck died at a local hospital while a patient of Narconon Arrowhead.

Although no charges have been filed in the investigation, Dist. 18 District Attorney Farley Ward said the case is still under review.

Narconon Arrowhead has faced numerous lawsuits with allegations such as wrongful death and employees trading drugs for sex with patients.
