"Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma investigated by top notich investigative reporter. The show is in 2 parts. You can read about it here from Colin Henderson aka Patriot75 who posted this over at WhyWeProtest forum:

"I just got the word from the FOX 25 Oklahoma City Primetime Investigative Reporter that they are airing part 1 tonight during the 9pm CST and the second part will air same time tomorrow. I have had to stay quite about this one, but the Reporter ask for help on getting the word out. Part 1 sounds like it will consist of the recent deaths at NN AH with interviews from the families and myself. Part 2 will be, well lets just say, focused on ODMHSAS and ODMH.

Apparently Scientology’s Narconon Arrowhead’s CEO Gary W. Smith declined to be interviewed due to scheduling and distance from OKC. However, Gary W. Smith send a statement to Marisa Mendelson:

Links for Tuesday, May 29th 2012 stories:

NARCONON Statement: Dear Ms. Mendelson, 1. The lawsuit that was filed made some allegations but the matter was fully resolved by the parties involved. 2. Narconon Arrowhead has 24 hour a day nursing staff as part of our drug and alcohol rehabilitation program. 3. Narconon Arrowhead is not an acute medical care facility nor is it a psychiatric hospital. All clients who enroll in Narconon Arrowhead's residential drug and alcohol rehab program receive a full medical assessment upon their arrival to determine if the individual is medically qualified to participate in the Narconon program. If clients that meet our medical qualifications are accepted into the program require prescription medications to manage a medical condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or are in need of antibiotics to fight an infection those medications are prescribed by our medical director and made available to the client. Prescribed medication is not withheld from clients. For those individuals found to have chronic illnesses or severe psychiatric disorders that require medical or psychiatric care at a level of care higher than Narconon Arrowhead can offer a referral is made to a facility that can provide a more appropriate level of care which will better meet their needs. Schedule and distance I am afraid will prohibit me from being able to do an interview. Sincerely, Gary W. Smith, CEO Narconon Arrowhead

Part I

Narconon treatment center

Quote
Three deaths, all connected to the same drug rehab facility in Oklahoma. Narconon Arrowhead is in the town of Canadian, Oklahoma. Some former patients say the facility's drug treatment program is based on Scientology. Some former patients say the center refuses to give them their prescription medication. However, the facility's CEO disagrees.

Our wonderful Narconon investigative reporter,  Marisa Mendelson of Fox 25 in Oklahoma is leaving to pursue her dreams at another TV station, this time in Orlando FL. Send her off with some love.

re:Marisa Mendelson
I have accepted a job at WFTV in Orlando. My last day at Fox 25 in Oklahoma City will be Friday, March 15th. It has been such an honor to meet and work with so many wonderful people. Thank you to everyone who let me share their amazing stories.
Ever since I graduated from the University of Central Florida, it has been my dream to work in Orlando as a professional journalist. My first day at WFTV is Monday, April 1st. (It's a dream come true, but I still feel like I'm dreaming.)
I hope my journalism made a difference while I was in Oklahoma City. While in Orlando, I plan to continue to hold the powerful accountable, fight for answers and dig deep into stories that matter to you. Please email me if you ever have something you want me to look into. https://www.facebook.com/marisamendelsonfanpage
