The PITA Group Inc. developed the Prevention Certification program for the State of Colorado and has process and bestowed the certificates of Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors to eligable candidates since 1996.

PITA is not nor has it ever been registered as a nonprofit or a general corp in Colorado.  What a bunch of horse crap.

I wish there was a way to get confirmation or denial of all his "credentials' and claims. Starting with his BS degree from University of Houston and this claim in Colorado.

The prosecutors in OK and TX must not care too much about their fellow citizens to be letting this fraud go on.  Around 200 people "certified" by this scam.  Think of how much damage they are doing to these people they are supposed to be helping.  4 people died in OK alone.  1 in Ga.  How many suicides and overdoses could have been prevented?  How many more will it take for someone in authority to act?  Really?

I like that her photo looks like a mug shot.  It's appropriate.  Make no mistake about it, her "counseling" methods are scientology.

The Code of Ethics for a RAS.  I fail to see how she signed it.  All of her clients do scientology based "counseling" and procedures.  Its against her religion to refer clients to evidence based rehabs for traditional counseling.  She and other scientologists believe they know best in this field so refer to nowhere else.  Her brand of treatment included having her clients spend 300-400 hours walking around a room touching things.  She doesnt even watch them do it usually.  Being directly involved is also against her religious beliefs.  How does she get away with running a drug detox "institute" in TX?

Hopefully they are rethinking how they advertise themselves and the way in which they do business.  Im very concerned someone is going to get hurt at their "detox institute".  Helping people come off their prescribed medications and even street drugs in an outpatient setting is a receipe for disaster.  Their hardcore brand of scientology does not help either.  300-400 hours of TR's and Objectives will literally drive one insane.  They run these processes until they "bite".  No ones "bite" is every big enough until they go through some major change.  Terrible to think what the students and staff at Arrowhead and in Tx are going through as a result of these two.

Bandwidth is a measure of the data transferred from the website.  Either they're on a cheap (or possibly free) web hosting server, or someone's really taken a sudden interest in them.

Does anyone have a copy of the Narconon Arrowhead "Meet the Staff" page?  Please post it here if so.  Im assuming they are going to deny, deny, deny any connection to old Kent and Claire pretty soon.  Would be nice to have photographic proof that they were, in fact, advertising their staff having the Pita "credentials".

Thats part of the problem, they took the page off their site.  Its easier to deny if there is no page.  The page you posted is perfect though.  Theres many more that they were advertising, but Mike Otto and DannaSue illustrate that they did have staff that were involved with Pita Group.  DBAE is a designation the group gives out as well as CADC.  CADC is a designation other groups use as well, and Kent using this was done on purpose i believe, but DBAE is particular to the Pita Pocket group.  I could be wrong though and if so, i would LOVE to see the DBAE certificate he was issued and to know who issued it.

Post Script- Danna Sue and Mike are not involved with administering the Narconon program to students.  They work is a Division that is tasked with new students being signed up for the program.

Vicki Smith being a Senior Case Manager is laughable.  She is not a Narconon Case Supervisor or even a church one.  Part of the Code of Ethics of most counselors is being competent in the modality that you are using.  Even by their own standards she does not qualify to sign folders, but i assume its a situation similar to Spring Hill where they need someone with a degree to come in and be a robo-signer.  She wouldn't know how to CS a folder any more than Thomas Garcia would at Spring Hill.  This is something she will need to talk to the OK Board of Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors about though.

I have a pdf print of that webpage. It's from 2011, with about 30 staff photos listing their credentials, if any. I'll email it to you, 10oriocookies

Thanks Colin.  Yes, the bottom right corner of the page.  The marital connection.  Jette McGregor, the Director of Technology, CCDC, wife of Kent McGregor.  I wonder how she got her CCDC cert.  She was in the Sea Org and worked at a Narconon in another country.  She immeditely went to Division 7 and worked in an Executive capacity when she arrived at NN Arrowhead.  More fudging I suspect.
