It appears that "Great Lakes Treatment Center" is the new "umbrella" brand for these seven facilities:
1) Forever Recovery, Battle Creek, MI
2) Awakenings Rehabilitation, Albion, MI (formerly Narconon Freedom Center; operating at same location)
3) Behavioral Rehabilitation Services, Harrison, MI
4) Choices Recovery, South Bend, IN
5) Great Lakes Rehabilitation, Manistee, MI (formerly Best Drug Rehabilitation)
6) New Beginnings Recovery, Van Wert, OH
7) Serenity Point Recovery, Grand Rapids, MI (Marne)

Thanks, Miss Fortune! Looks like there are a few that need to be added to Narconon Reviews.

I knew about Great Lakes, just didn't have time to post about it.. glad you did! but I not about Awakenings

Awakenings Rehabilitation must be separate Wickstrom unbranded Narconon. He must have booted NArconon out, lol

Narconon Freedom Center moved to a different location  505 Keefer Dr  Albion, MI 49224 sometime last year. I thought it was around Sept 2017


I appreciate you mentioning the new address for Narconon Freedom Center.  The BBB doesn't always get updated addresses right away.   Back in Sept 2017 I heard from a patient's family the facility was moving to a new location due to money problems, but I didn't know where to.

I checked the MI State Licensing the 505 Keefer Dr address is now listed for them. As well,  that new address is listed on some previous year reports the state provides the public. You may want to read the last 3 of the  2017 reports listed, as they discuss pretty serious violation matters. Last report is dated in Dec 2017. Here is the link:   https://w2.lara.state.mi.us/VAL/License/Details/2179425

It's clear now that it was probably in July or Aug 2017...

I'm going to check with the family member who told me about the financial problems NN Freedom Center, causing them to move. I was under the impression that the patient was there in Sept, just before the move. After seeing the Awakenings initial survey, linked below, I realize that all that had to be going on much earlier in the year if they were still at the 809 West Erie address.

I wish more people would help keep an eye out for these things with the name changes, entity changes.   Appreciate you letting us know, Miss Fortune!

The change of address showed up in LARA in May 2017.

It's not a different location, just a different address for the same place.

I don't know about that, DH....  I confirmed last night, with the relative of the patient who went Narconon Freedom Center in the fall of 2017 at the 505 Keefer Dr location.

That program corporation remains active, It uses a different mailing address for the MI Sec of State...  PO Box 755, Albion, MI.  Not sure if you can see this doc from the LARA MI corp entity search  website: https://cofs.lara.state.mi.us/CorpWeb/CorpSearch/CorpSearchRedirector.aspx?Action=PDF&Path=CORP_LEGACY/D201710\2017282\E0960450.tif

Awakenings Rehabilitation was incorporated in Nevada in Jan 2017 but filed as a foreign corp in MI later in the year. 

In Nevada, iIt's 10/2017 annual report shows most of the officers at the 809 W Erie . This is standard for Per Wickstrom to do, file in MI as a foreign corp out of NV.  Not sure if you can see this NV Officers info doc.

Keep in mind that Narconon Freedom Center has been under the direct management of ABLE ( and previously Narconon WUS, which is now defunct) for some years now. It was a problem Narconon. The family member who contacted me in late 2017 told me that upper management officials came in and took the place over ( direct bypass) after they received that disastrous inspection review.   Most likely is was a financial decision to move.

My experience tells me that the only Narconon programs that transition into unbranded ones are those owned and operated by people who started the program. Like the Mansions in Northern CA

I guess moe research needs to be done on these 2 programs

On the map, 505 Keefer Dr is the side entrance for 809 West Erie Street.

A bit of shuffling in Michigan's reports for Narconon Freedom Center.
  • An Annual Survey of 02-27-2017 was renamed to a Licensure Survey. No biggy.
  • A Settlement Agreement - 10-19-2017 was removed.
  • A Follow Up - 10-19-2017 was added. (Out of order with a Follow up - 12-19-17).
The list of participants for the Follow up include Gwenda Byrne from ABLE. They had ZERO clients on site.

There was supposed have been an unannounced inspection within the next three months, so that should have happened, but there's no record of it yet. Typical.
