Two good stories regarding the matters raised in this thread! Glad to see NArconon Reviews and Reaching For The Tipping Point forum here mentioned. I was not sure whether Mr. Baum had enough for his story trying to tie the Chucrh of Scientology into this. Kudos to all involved, especially to WebActivism, who helped get the ball rolling.

Scientology Anti-Drug Program: Fabricated Court Orders Suggest Attempt to Silence Critics
6:30 AM PDT 8/9/2017 by Gary Baum, The Hollywood Reporter

Quote
Someone appears to be trying to scrub warnings about the church's controversial Narconon program from the internet.
 
Nearly a decade after Scientology prompted a high-profile internet protest movement — sparked when the church attempted to remove a damaging YouTube video of member Tom Cruise speaking about the religion — comes the discovery of a new covert campaign to subvert online criticism of the organization's social work. A series of forged court orders were submitted to Google (and possibly to Yahoo and Bing as well) in 2016 in an attempt to convince the search giant to expunge links to written objections to Scientology's controversial anti-drug program Narconon. The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment when asked whether it is investigating the issue, which involves the bogus signatures of judges from multiple states. [..]

[..]Neither the judges nor the lawyers impersonated in the materials would comment. The search firms also declined to address the matter.

The affected websites themselves, however, were both candid and unsurprised. "We've been dealing with shenanigans like this for a while," explained Mary McConnell, the pseudonym of an activist volunteer with two of them, NarcononReviews.net and ReachingfortheTippingPoint.net. "To go so far as using the name of real judges is what's eye-opening." Adds a weary Ed Magedson, owner of RipoffReport.com, with a more general observation: "It has become far more prevalent in the last year or so to attempt to de-index us with Google, since that's how users find content anyway, and Google appears to almost automatically rubber-stamp [requests], so some people try to take advantage."

Can't confirm if it is a referral site for NN, but it looks like it.

Definitely is. Make a couple more posts Peterstorm and then you can message me privately. I can then provide you with details. I just don't want to post what I know publicly

Actually, no need to message me. It is a Narconon site and I can post these publicly

A February annual survey is now showing on the Michigan site:

https://w2.lara.state.mi.us/VAL/License/Details/2179425

https://w2.lara.state.mi.us/VAL/Files/ViewDocument/38152

It looks like they weren't doing a lot of the required paperwork and posters. It also explains why they residential detox program dropped off their listing in March.
Quote
Additionally, after speaking with the program director, the program advised that they are no longer administering residential detoxification treatment at their facility.  Therefore, failure to no longer provide this service has resulted in removal of residential detox from their license as of February 27, 2017.   
They only have CAIT and Residential there. I assume Wickstrom has another place that does the residential detox, and I assume that Freedom Center did the usual patch-job to meet the requirements to keep their license, since it hasn't dropped.

A FOREVER RECOVERY at 216 St Mary's Lake Rd, Battle Creek also got a survey, no problems. (Ha!)
