Title: Suncoast Rehabilitation Center
Post by: RodKeller on July 31, 2014, 15:57
This location has been in the news since the Tampa Times article on July 25th. http://www.tampabay.com/news/scientology/operators-of-scientology-rehab-center-to-open-clearwater-halfway-house-/2190139 (http://www.tampabay.com/news/scientology/operators-of-scientology-rehab-center-to-open-clearwater-halfway-house-/2190139) Joe Childs writes that the facility is planned as a 60 bed halfway house, and not a Narconon since the plans do not include any saunas. Tony Ortega wrote a follow-up article claiming that the site is the new home of Suncoast Rehabilitation Center, and will be a full Narconon facility. http://tonyortega.org/2014/07/26/scientology-surrenders-at-least-partially-in-seven-lawsuits-against-its-rehab-network/ (http://tonyortega.org/2014/07/26/scientology-surrenders-at-least-partially-in-seven-lawsuits-against-its-rehab-network/)

This is the facility in question: 1390 Sunset Point Road in Clearwater, FL

(http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/6bac398515d841068acfc0f28495a5d8_zpscf3f4432.jpg) (http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/6bac398515d841068acfc0f28495a5d8_zpscf3f4432.jpg)

The site is the former home of Sunset Point Baptist Church, Sunset Point Christian School, and New Beginnings Community Church. This is a photo from Google Earth of the site.

The site is close to four schools.

(http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/map2_zps5e58257a.jpg) (http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/map2_zps5e58257a.jpg)

The property was in foreclosure when it was purchased on May 10, 2013 for $950,000 by Rehabilitation Initiatives LLC, 1230 S. Myrtle Ave in Clearwater.

(http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/unnamed_zpsf9fe8833.png)

The director of Rehabilitation Initiatives is Sean Strickling, who is a former director of Narconon Spring Hill and currently a director of Novus Medical Detox in New Port Richey, FL. The address of Rehabilitation Initiatives is also the offices of Narconon Spring Hill, Toucan Partners LLC, Feshbach Investments, Falcon Research, Carez Corporation, and Addiction Help Services. This chart from CorporationsWiki shows the relationships between these companies. The chart doesn't show that Sean Strickling is the CFO of Toucan Partners, which is the property owner of the Narconon Spring Hill facility.

Narconon Spring Hill offices are listed as 1390 Sunset Point Road on a number of web sites.
http://www.superpages.com/bp/Clearwater-FL/Narconon-Spring-Hill-Inc-L2496245368.htm (http://www.superpages.com/bp/Clearwater-FL/Narconon-Spring-Hill-Inc-L2496245368.htm) Also, the web page for Suncoast Drug Rehabilitation shows that Narconon Spring Hill and Suncoast Drug Rehabilitation are the same thing: "Copyright © 2008-2014 Narconon Spring Hill, Inc. DBA Suncoast Rehabilitation Center." So this facility will be operated by Narconon Spring Hill, but is it the new Narconon facility, or is it a half-way house for patients from either Novus Detox or Narconon Spring Hill?

This is the first page in the City of Clearwater's file for the project.

(http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/DrugRehab_zpsa2772962.png)

"Interior build-out of 2 existing connected buildings as a drug rehabilitation center"

It was suggested that this couldn't be a Narconon because the site lacks saunas.

(http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/saunas_zps012464e8.png)

"Sauna purchase and shipping $18,553.00
Sauna installation $5,800.00"

There are to be 19 sleeping rooms in the facility, of sufficient size to house 60 patients. The patients will be provided with "gang bathrooms."

(http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/19units_zpsc1ce78a8.jpg)

Also, to provide security for the site, and perhaps for the surrounding schools, there is provision for a "6 foot perimeter wall ... and entry gate."

(http://i1349.photobucket.com/albums/p741/RodKeller/Suncoast%20Rehab/6footwall_zps91771ff9.jpg)

There is currently no license from the Department of Children and Families to operate a Drug Rehab program at this location, nor has one been applied for. They can apply once the construction is complete, and they have a Certificate of Occupancy or a Certificate of Completion. The state would then have 30 days to determine if the application meets the state minimum requirments, or not.

Suncoast Rehabilitation Center to relocate to Clearwater after settlement

...
The new facility will have room for up to 60 beds, compared with the current 27. Additionally, the new building will be large enough to offer all elements of the treatment program in a single location, something not possible at the Spring Hill facility. A commercial kitchen is also planned.

New Narconon getting ready to open in Clearwater. This is the one that used to be in Spring Hill and sued the city over expansion. Compared to that facility, this new place is Buckingham Palace.

The fence is newer than May 2014 in Streetview.

They've done some shifting of their agent and manager in their Florida listing.

The current manager is Glen Stilo, FSO Legal. Did he muster out of the Sea Org for this?

The bolded ^^^ facility was never their legal name and they never filed for that corporate name because it was used by another company for many years. They have always been Narconon Spring Hill, Inc dba Suncoast Rehabilitation Center and now changed the Narconon Spring Hill, Inc corporation name to Narconon Suncoast, Inc. They filed an amended change form for the owner of the fictitious name as well to Narconon Suncoast, Inc.
