I think there is another thread about this. This is Narconon Arrowhead's detox website. The facility was approved provisionally back in Jan 2011.

Colin Henderson did much research on this facility.


here are 2 threads about it

No, not a bad thing to post at all! Just wanted to alert you that the facility was known about.

What did the promo say?

Re: Arrowhead Detox - Closed?

I did some digging this morning and I believe that Arrowhead Medical Detox quietly closed its doors.  It was issued another 6-month temporary permit back in November, which ended in May http://ok.gov/odmhsas/documents/board%20meeting%20attachment%20A-nov%20%2712-revised.pdf

Their site, arrowheaddetox[dot]com is no longer up.  I also recall getting emails from them about their detox and haven't seen any in months. 

As I referenced in my book, the detox center concept was one that was supposed to generate them a lot of money, and they were also pushing it very heavily late last year and early this year since their other numbers were dwindling for the regular program.  Maybe the state denied certification?  Maybe they're trying to bring it onto their main campus instead of having it in McAlester?  Maybe they had to sell the old motel it occupied because they're hurting so bad financially. 

Several executives no longer work there, and they even promoted one senior executive as having opened his own pizza shop nearby.  It's been pretty quiet over there lately, and the press releases from Clark Carr/ NN Int haven't been focusing on Arrowhead in several weeks.  Something is definitely up, and they've managed to slip under the radar on it so far.  We should make some calls and do some digging here.  The state could have potentially taken other action as well that has simply gone unnoticed.

Of course, there is also the possibility that I'm reading too much into this and nothing has changed.

Remember, this was just an observation of things online.  I haven't verified anything yet, though I know some people are looking into it.

Of course it wouldn't be the first time Cof$, or one of it's fronts, has quietly shut something down in the hopes of minimizing potential liability issues either.

Somebody else thinks it's closed.
NARCONON ARROWHEAD MEDICAL DETOX CLOSED; STATE OF OKLAHOMA TEMPORARY PERMIT EXPIRED IN MAY

BREAKING NEWS
Anti-Scientology activist Colin Henderson, currently heading the "Supressa Palooza" tour, reports exclusively to Miss Fortune that Narconon's Arrowhead Medical Detox facility located in McAlester, OK, has closed.

Miss Fortune has contacted Oklahoma's Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services for confirmation of the closing date and any additional action the state is considering regarding the facility. An update on this breaking news is expected shortly, and will appear exclusively on this blog.

Hello. I'm new to your site, but not the struggle against the dangerous and criminal Narconon scam.

Miss Fortune is meticulous and thorough in her research.  I am thus certain Arrowhead has been forced to close it's doors.  Yay.  The question for me is always:  Why are these facilities  able to continue and fly under the radar as long as they do?

Welcome to the Tipping Point, Suppresive Person. I believe only the medical detox portion of Narconon Arrowhead has been closed.

Your question is one that gets asked a lot. Are the state agencies lacking resources and funding? Probably. Are they blinded by the incomprehensibility of it all? Maybe. Denial may play a part. The regulations or lack thereof are another problem.

The fact is that a lot of lives have been lost and many others were harmed.

Welcome, Suppresive Person!

Yes. I spelled my user name wrong.  I'm missing an "s".  (Sigh)  But proud to be an SP by any spelling.

I can fix that for you, if you'd like.   :) 

Regardless, we're delighted to have another suppressive person around, especially one who's another fan of Miss Fortune.

Narconon Arrowhead loses state certification - McAlester News-Capital
By Jeanne LeFlore
Quote
McALESTER — Narconon Arrowhead’s medical detox facility in McAlester has lost its state certification, officials say.

“Their temporary permit has expired and Arrowhead Medical Detox is not certified for medical detox,” said Jeff Desmukes of the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health Substance Abuse Services.

The permit expired May 16 after Narconon Arrowhead failed to correct deficiencies found by the state during earlier inspections, according to Desmukes.

Hello again all.

Yes. I eventually realized it was the medical detox and not the rehab facility - but a closing is a closing and I rejoice.

Yes. Ethercat - could you please fix my spelling?  I would appreciate it.

( I thought I posted this similar reply earlier but I guess it didn't take. I am still learning how your forum site works.  Please forgive if this winds up as a duplicate post)
