Ripoff Report on BDR from June 5, 2015 and it's a doozy.

Best drug rehab They say whatever it takes to get you there battlecreek/manistee, michigan

Quote
Ok to start off with I don't even know they got my phone number but they called me. The girl I spoke to raved about the place how it's like a resort there's physical trainers massage therapists saunas hot tubs ect. They tell me they pay for transportation to and from not to worry. So I get on a plane that night with nothing but a small bag and $25. I get there at 3am and this place is a ramshackle. They have ten bunk beds to a room and I might as well have been laying on a cot for all the comfort there was. They tried to force me to take suboxone which makes me nauseas instead of subutex. Finally got the subutex. But I am on two medications for bipolar depression and insomnia. They refused to allow me either one. Without even talking to my doc they just cut them off.

Sounds like they're practicing medicine without a license, as well as theft, by taking the persons meds away like that.

At times, I'm still amazed at the sheer arrogance it takes for Narconon to discontinue meds like this, without any thought for the potential consequences, despite any evidence in their previous experience as to how harmful the results can be. The rationalization hamster must keep them doing the same things over and over, expecting different results.

Recent PRWeb slime presser (something Wickstrom appears to being doing more often just like Scientology does) shows the name of the South Bend Narconon is Choices Recovery:

http://www.prweb.com/releases/choices-recovery/substance-abuse-seminar/prweb12844643.htm

With another cookie cutter'd rehab website (that matches all his other ones) at crehab dot org

A google news alert on "Wickstrom rehab" is now in order.

Yeah. Narconon, and friends, frequently do these kinds of press releases. Also, they do a lot of free advertising in local online newspapers by promoting free evaluations/assessments on community bulletin boards.

BEST DRUG REHABILITATION SERVICES, 300 Care Center Drive, Manistee, MI 49660 picked up a complaint, February 10th.

https://w2.lara.state.mi.us/VAL/Files/ViewDocument/32494
BDRS: "Oh, THAT insurance money. The check is the mail."
LARA: "Our work here is done. Case closed!"

Also this:
https://w2.lara.state.mi.us/VAL/Files/ViewDocument/32495

That James Hoyt, Regulatory Officer, is like the Flash or something.

February 10th, 2016:
  • The Complaint Investigation was conducted at Best Drug Rehabilitation, 300 Care Center Drive, Manisteeon February 10, 2016.
  • An annual state licensure inspection was conducted on February 10, 2016 at Best Drug Rehabilitation #2, located at 900 Vine Street, Manistee, MI 49660
February 29th, 2016:
  • Best Drug Rehabilitation, SA0510026 COMPLAINT INVESTIGATION
  • Best Drug Rehabilitation #2, SA0510027 State Licensure Inspection Findings for A
    bove-Referenced Agency
Okay, maybe those were just his days to shuffle Manistee paperwork. If someone was capturing all the LARA data, they could put together a pretty good daily schedule of locations that James Hoyt dealt with.

Just a note about Michigan's LARA: the agency has never closed a drug rehabilitation facility here in Michigan...ever!

Hi, Miss Fortune! That's doesn't give one much hope, but LARA has done some good surveys. OTOH, most of the state agencies rubber-stamp the offered plan of correction from the rehabs. I'd like to see the agencies be a bit more assertive. :0L||O

BEST DRUG REHABILITATION SERVICES at 300 Care Center Drive, Manistee, MI 49660 just got their yearly license bump to July 31, 2017.

I expect that the rest will follow soon before July 31, 2016, if not, then it's time to recheck for new names/companies/licenses at the old locations. Same as it ever was.
