another little tidbit from inside NarCONon of Georgia...they are operating at 50% over their capacity.  they are licensed for 60 patients and they are currently "treating" 90 patients.

Hmm. I wonder what deception led to this many people choosing Narconon? The same as usual or something new, like the "Christian" program?

  If you are talking about actual building capacity,meaning 90 individuals in the narconon of georgia leased space,then they may be in violation of city/county/state/cap occupancy fire code. A call to the county fire marshall would be a first point of contact.

  Yet we must take into account "How" narconon of georgia may be "Juggling" the 90 patients around in order to stay legal per occupancy and fire code laws.

 @ any given time, a large part of those alleged 90 narconon of georgia patients may be @ the "Sauna" location for a large part of the day.

 Any concerned citizen can file a complaint if they feel a building in which a business is operating may in fact be over the limit occupancy wise.

It will be interesting to see what the outcome of this may be.  Wonder if they'll pack up and close down like Narconon Trois Riveres did?
