Thank you. Elevate has opened facilities in San Francisco & San Jose. Wondering if they will close Watsonville to hind who they really are.

Who is in charge of their PR department? That's a terrible move. haha

 ;) Perhaps, it's a result of indoctrination? Scientology doesn't seem to be strong on logic. Someone with more experience could explain better, I'm sure.

I'm so glad I found this site a while back. Olive, thank you for your post. Every word you wrote is the truth about this place.

I sent my daughter to Elevate Addition Services and after the third day speaking to Cassidy, I knew something was off. Too robotic!!!! Started to research. How could there possibly 5-star reviews in every category? 1st RED flag. Then digging further, I found reviews that were removed with info that made the hair on my neck rise. I finally found this site and read all I needed to read. I called them and told them to put my daughter on the phone or I was coming to get her. This is so hard for a parent whose daughter might die on the streets. When we spoke, she said she was fine and I told her it was Scientology.  They lied and took my daughter off medication in a 4-day taper and lied to me again.

Everything about this place is Scientology. The staff, management, and what's with Dr. Stein. This place should not be allowed to stay in business. My daughter and another girl left, and they coerced them back. It's voluntary, so let them leave. My daughter called me the next day and I went and picked her up. She had the number of the other girl's phone number to call her mom to let her know. I called, and we got her daughter out a week later. They lied to her mom as well.

I just wrote a review to BBB and they posted it with Ashly replying with complete falsehood.

Below is my review to BBB.

See below, Shelby. This new lawsuit helps explains why your daughter's dual diagnosis was not addressed appropriately, why Elevate and other Scientology based Narconon programs do not adhere to evidence based medical standards, and why scientologists refuse to apply them to self ( and others)

Holy shit, Megan was just out of interning when I was at RCR and Nicole was my roommate at Warner Springs.

Crazy that the place is "for sale" since I was under the impression that the ranch was leased.

However, I'm pretty sure that they owned the tree houses a few miles down the road from the ranch, or maybe those were the ones that were leased, but the way I remember it, the ranch was leased, and the tree houses (withdraw) had been bought out for $3mil after the developer realized that no one was ever going to want to pay to go to play golf in godforsaken Caliente NV

Belated hello and thanks for posting this, brighterlights7! Former patients' experiences and knowledge is always appreciated, as is yours. It's sad how Narconon some recruits patients to become staff. Sadder yet that some become officers of their corporations. I gather they may well have become scientologists, because it's a big deal for Narconon to to put a name to once of it's corporations, unlike the Sea Org members listed on Scientology corps as trustees. As long as they are loyal, they are used.

I do hope you wil post again, and share more of your knowledge about this facility. Of course, your personal details should be omitted. Just general information on your experiences, and any observations of the place, staff, community, etc, would be helpful. It's up to you, of course. 

On the ownership vs leasing, Narconon has owned the a number of land and properties at this Caliente, NV site for many years. They are still deed registered as owned by Narconon Southern California. They have since taken the property off the market because there were no viable offers. They still need the money to repay the still owed $1.5 Million in IRS audited payroll tax underpayments Narconon Fresh Start failed to report and pay in in recent years.

Perhaps you mean the motel down the road when you refer to 'leased'. For some years, Narconon  leased the apparently then-vermin infested Caliente Hot Springs Motel and Spa, located at Highway 93 N in
Caliente 

The motel has since cleaned up it's act and it receiving very good traveler reviews on Yelp

Here is the Google map of what it located on and near Narconon fresh Start ( Narconon Southern California) property

In 2012, investigative reporter Nathan Baca ( then at CBS Las Vegas NOW station, previously in CA, and noted for his investigations into Scientology there) reported extensively on Narconon in NV, and did report on the motel where many student were housed. The motel was for some time leased by Narconon, at least until these reports by Baca came out.

Quote
Just south of the town, the Narconon lodge is on a hillside surrounded by ranch land.

The I-Team attempted to speak with Narconon management.

At first, a woman named Kate approached the I-Team and declined an interview.

Another manager a day later gave the I-Team a cease-and-desist letter.

The I-Team then headed toward the former Caliente Hot Springs Motel in town.

Narconon leases the motel and keeps patients there.

"There's mold in our room," Justin Vandergriend said. "Within the first two nights, me and my roommate Yann were experiencing bites from bed bugs."

Here is a post from 2013, in a thread titled
 "Getting my son out of a Narconon facility as we speak"
http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php?topic=12670.0

Hi - I wanted to reply to the thread. This is Stacy's husband. I would like to thank all of you for the kindness, support and guidance you showed us while we figured out how to get him out. I was there yesterday,dealt with the "staff", went to the rat hole hotel on the other end of town where our son was living. I have seen this facility first hand. If I can assist please let me know. I am far from done with these people. Thanks again for the support.

You can find more information posted some time back on Narconon Nevada aka Narconon Fresh Start in NV aka Rainbow Canyon Retreat

You can find additional info on the motel, owned (still?) by members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS Church) and previously for for years in performing "Underage "child bride" polygamous marriages"

Take particular note of the Employer Identification Number (EIN). In November 2014 the IRS Exempt Organization database shows EIN 770275827 belonging to Narconon Int, DBA Narconon of Northern California. With a 501(c)3 exemption granted as part of the Narconon Int Group Exemption (GEN 2595). A month later that same EIN is shown belonging to 'Halcyon Horizons Inc', with it's own 501(c)3 exemption (GEN 0000) that is no longer part of a Group Exemption.

The fact the EIN did not change means the corporate structure of the organization did not change, only the name, otherwise a new EIN would have been assigned. It looks like the existing corporate structure was attempting to disassociate itself from the toxic Narconon name by applying for 501(c)3 status in it's own right. Which doesn't change a thing as far as paying licensing fees, etc., "up lines" to $cientology for the use of Hubbard's psuedo-science dren.

I'm behind in getting the following information ( among other things) up at Narconon Reviews site but I thought it best to get it all that I located up onto the internet so that people searching for these new names know they are dealing with a Narconon based program that keeps changing it's names to avoid bad publicity and legal liability.

1) Somehow, they figured out a way to become qualified for The Joint Commission - JCAHO - accreditation
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations is a private, not for profit organization established in 1951 to evaluate health care organizations that voluntarily seek accreditation
https://healthfinder.gov/FindServices/Organizations/Organization.aspx?code=HR1458

 Report a Complaint About a Health Care Organization

2) and most importantly: What was once Narconon Northern California ( too many dba names to list ), which then became Halcyon Horizons Incorporated dba Elevate Addiction Services etc... is now a number of new Limited Liability Corporations under the EnlightiCare, Inc dba Elevate umbrella. Compare names, locations, below

Thank you for replying. Yes, I saw that video and made a copy as well. It's unbelieveable. No words to describe how terrible it is. I cannot believe there are still getting away with this.

Glad you got to watch it!
