From the NAFC Lawsuit:
Quote
12. A LIFE WORTH LIVING, INC. d/b/a NARCONON COLORADO - A LIFE WORTH SAVING, a Colorado Non-Profit Corporation;

14. Defendant A Life Worth Living, Inc. d/b/a Narconon Colorado – A Life Worth Saving (“Narconon Colorado”) is a Non-Profit Corporation organized under the laws of the State of Colorado, with its principal place of business in Fort Collins, Colorado.

79. GLEN PETCAVAGE, a citizen of Colorado;

160. Additionally, The Pita Group, Inc.’s company Facebook page continues to falsely advertise: “The PITA Group Inc. developed the Prevention Certification Program for the State of Colorado and has bestowed the certificate of Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor to over two hundred professionals since 1996 in conjunction with the National Association of Forensic Counselors.” https://www.facebook.com /pitaprofessionalconsulting/info?ref=stream.

161. Defendant Kent McGregor, through Defendant The Pita Group, Inc., Defendant Narconon Colorado, and professionally through LinkedIn, falsely advertises himself as C.C.D.C. and as Masters Addictions Social Work Counselor through the National Association of Forensic Counselors, Board of Chemical Dependency Counselors, when in reality NAFC has no record of his certification.

171. Defendant Glen Petcavage owns and operates the website narcononcolorado.org, which promises a call back from a Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor and continues to post the false credentials of Gary Smith as C.C.D.C. despite its revocation in March 2013.

Somebody ought to let the Colorado Licensing agency know about this.

One letter to all the state regulatory agencies who monitor drug treatment for the states who have a Narconon or a Narconon affiliate?

I'm thinking they should all be notified about the NAFC case.

You're so effective at getting agencies to listen to you, you'd be a good one to do it.   :)

We have a list of the state agencies here:
http://narcononreviews.net/resources/for-potential-clients/how-to-choose-a-drug-or-alcohol-rehab/researching-a-rehab-facility/drug-rehab-licensing-state-agencies/

It has links to the agency pages we found when we were building the site, and the states that have a known Narconon in them are annotated with an (N).  Some of the states have mailing addresses and phone numbers.  Few have email addresses, but that should be on their sites somewhere, or at least contact forms for them will be.

Will that help?

Does anyone have a recent picture of Kent McGregor?

I was looking a a site on my list http://www.drug-rehab-colorado.com/aboutus.php

No mention of Narconon, no notes to remind me where it came from. No names of their staff or locations, and one picture Mac.jpg that I think might be McGregor.

It has the usual signs of a Narconon:
Quote
Our counselors have a minimum of a Masters Degree in the alcohol and drug counseling and administration field with years of practical experience. The wisdom from these years of experience is as important as the license and the degrees. It is only from years of experience that our counselors have found that many of the "best" treatment program operate on a philosophy that is highly unsuccessful in curing addiction. Many counselors and rehab centers believe that addiction is an incurable disease. Years of experience and worldly travel and research has proven otherwise to our counselors. We have experience with rehab centers that have over 70% success. In the medical field, any procedure that has an outcome over 70% is considered to be a totally effective treatment approach.
By sniff test, it's probably Narconon-related, but I've found non-Narconons making the similar fraudulent claims. I'd like to nail it one way or another because it hooks into a network of residential rehabs in California that aren't known Narconons.

That's the same pic as the site. He has another one: www.texas-drug-rehabs.org

If he still doing Narconon, or is he somewhat freelance these days? Hopefully NAFC lands on him from a great height.

Biophysical treatment methods get the residue of the drugs out of the body. Through research, it has been found that the human body will store a residue, called a metabolite of the drug, in the dormant fat tissue of the body for many years after drug use/abuse. When a person stops using drugs, this residue of the fat-soluble drugs begins to be released back into the blood stream which causes cravings, anxiety, and depression in the addict who may be trying desperately to stop the cravings and curtail his use.
