What is going on with this place? It is listed as Tranquility Detox now in the A Forever Recovery paperwork we received now that my son is in there. i am trying to find out things like how many nurses they have working there, I could not understand why no one from billing would talk to me but the intake coordinator about billing. Yhey do not list their nursing staff. I am trying to convince family we need him out ofthere but theythink I am over exaggerating .

Thank you, jensting.  When the poster on WWP can convince their family to get the son out, it would be a good idea to contact the police to accompany them.  And between this site (TP) and the Michigan section of Narconon Reviews (http://narcononreviews.net/location/michigan/), there should be plenty to convince them.

Per Wickstrom ran Narconon Stonehawk, got into trouble financially (which Eric, posting as 10oriocookies, can expound on if he sees this), and now runs A Forever Recovery, Best Drug Rehab, Best Choice Rehab, and Tranquility Detox.  I would think the newer facilities are being run in a similar way to the way Stonehawk was run.  Narconon Freedom Center is run by Brian Kuehne, but we have reason to believe patients are transferred amongst the facilities; see the horrifying Teague lawsuit: http://narcononreviews.net/lawsuits/richard-teague-v-narconon-freedom-center-inc-a-forever-recovery-inc-tia-corp/

I noticed this comment by "The Internet" over there and it needs some return comment:

Narconon is non-medical so there really is no need for nurses, who must work under a doctor's order. I think a doctor does a screening exam of patients before they go to the program, but typically Narconon does not have a doctor on site.

Narconon claims to be non-medical, but the condition of withdrawing from drugs and then taking large doses of vitamins can affect people in a negative medical way, particularly people with existing medical conditions, so there really needs to be someone on site who will recognize the difference between withdrawal and a potentially adverse medical situation.  Frequently, the untrained (except for scientology training) Narconon staff take symptoms of physical distress as nothing more than withdrawal symptoms.

The State Licensing (http://narcononreviews.net/resources/for-potential-clients/how-to-choose-a-drug-or-alcohol-rehab/researching-a-rehab-facility/drug-rehab-licensing-state-agencies/) page on NNReviews has links to all of the state agencies that license drug rehabs, who determine whether or not a doctor or nurse is required by law to be present.
