Thanks who me!!

Yes, who me! I get tired of reposting stuff I've already posted on the net. Glad you found all my stuff :)

ethercat, I do have more on that facility but I just don't have time or energy this week to post any. I can tell yoiu that it is owned and run by Narconon Southern California and still operates without licenses. They must have some connections to get away with that.

Hey there everyone, I am new to this site and I came across this particular forum. My ex husband is in this particular Narconon facility right now as I am writing to you. He was transferred to this facility from the Narconon in Colorado. While he was in Colorado he kept on trying to do things to get out of the facility and resorted to drastic measures to do so. He called 911 and threatened to kill himself and others and the police showed up and took him to the hospital for evaluation and was found fit to go back and he didn't want to go back. But he ended up going back there any way against his will. Upon his return he was told of his transfer and they only gave me 6hrs notice to secure the flight and all arrangements to get him to Caliente. Once I got him to the facility in Nevada 2 members from the facility met me at the airport and escorted him to the facility. I went to check things out the following morning and look over the facility and was not impressed with what I had seen. No one at the facility would talk to me they tried everything to push me out the door and did even take a family history. When I left that day I felt uneasy about leaving him there. So I stayed for a few days in case they needed me for anything. The day before I was scheduled to go home I went out to the facility one last time and met with 2 counselors and had a very brief and vague meeting with them. I stressed to the staff all who would listen to me that my ex suffers from sever anxiety and depression and A.D.H.D. A week went by and I was told that they would be in contact with me to give me updates and none was given to me. I find myself chasing them for updates. Then a week and a half ago my ex's depression is really bad he threatened to end his own life again and his anxiety is very severe right now so I took it upon myself to contact a Holistic doctor one that would be within there guidelines in order to get him on some all natural remedies to help control the anxiety and depression. I sent off the med's the doctor recommended all but one medication was approved. The excuse they emailed me on why the one was not approved was because the dosage is to high. So I asked the doctor about it and he informed me its not and I got confirmation from 2 other doctors and I questioned them about it and threatened to go above there heads to get the meds he needs to function properly and start healing and they called me back and told me a whole different story. I have been noticing a lot of things that are making me question whether or not this is a good facility or not. When I tried to call him back that night the phones were conveniently under repairs and no one was aloud to send out calls or receive them and the office was shut down as well. I guess my question to the forum is what is the real deal about this particular facility? Also is there any stories of abuse from this facility or others? My ex is telling me that there is verbal, and sexual abuse going on there. I want to believe him but I also don't want to jump the gun either. I am really upset at the treatment they are giving me right now and the lack of communication with the family. If anyone can help me in any way I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

You are right to question what is is happening with him. Others have reported similar complaints of verbal and sexual abuse, no medical supervision, lengthy hours in sauna and dangerous dosages of vitamins, particularly Niacin. Narconon is Scientology.

Mary McConnell and David Love are good resources
for you on this forum.

Arrange for him to go to a credible facility that is NOT A Narconon. He is in a dangerous situation right now without his meds. One died in TR because of similar scenario. Get him out asap and demand a refund. If they won't give refund and harass, contact media.  I can help you with this and I'm sure Mary would too. David Edgar Love

Hi MyssyG, and welcome to the forum. 

I agree with David on finding a credible facility and getting him into it as soon as you can get him out of Narconon Nevada, Rainbow Ranch, or whatever they're calling it now.  Local hospitals may have one they can refer you to - you would be best off getting a referral over the phone from a credible medical facility rather than looking on the internet because Narconon has dominated the search engines and made it difficult to find other legitimate facilities.

Scientologists (and the people who run all the Narconons are Scientologists) do not believe in mental conditions such as depression, anxiety, and ADHD, so they will not take these things seriously.  A good facility will be able to treat both the addiction and the mental issues as well.  (Of course, Narconon would insist, if asked, that they would treat anything.  Anything to get the money.)

It wouldn't be surprising to those of us who are familiar with Narconon if what your ex husband says about sexual and verbal abuse is true.  There is even one of the courses that deals with accepting verbal abuse without reacting - in Scientology, it is called TR Bullbait, but perhaps David can tell you which "Book" (course) it is in for Narconon.

I know that addicts will often say anything to get out of the facility they are in, but we have seen people express regrets that they didn't believe their loved one when they wanted to leave Narconon.  The fact that the staff will not communicate with you is a huge red flag.

I know you asked about this particular facility, but all of the Narconon branches are run in a similar manner, according to the same principles, and, apparently, with the same degree of knowledge and professionalism (that is, little to NONE).

I will echo that both David (Intelligence) and Mary_McConnell can probably be of help to you.  Both have posted in this thread, and you can send them a PM using the link that looks this: on their profile at the left side of their posts.

Please let us know the outcome with your ex husband.

MyssyG,

It appears that your ex husband has several serious issues other than his addiction, if you want to remove your ex husband from the facilities, the sheriff has a substation in Caliente arrange to have them (sheriff) at the facility when you arrive.

 Lincoln County Sheriff Dept Caliente Sub Station
 Caliente, NV 89008
 Tel: 775 726-3111

As you know the facilities is located in a pretty remote area if the ex husband is as serious as you say he needs to be located where there is qualified medical assistance in close proximity.

Hi MyssyG,

I saw your post but needed some time to locate information so I could have it available for you to see. I can see that you are concerned about your boyfriend but I am dismayed that he's still at this facility!

You don't say how long he's been in the program at each facility and what step he's on. Narconon Rainbow Ranch aka Rainbow Canyon Canyon aka Narconon Nevada is unlicensed facility with unlicensed counselors. They are not skilled in dealing with patients with mental health issues, particulary anxiety issues. Who decided to send him there? What were you promised? I am very concerned about your boyfriend's mental health and his human rights. Please read on and then reply when you see what else I have to say.

Colorado allows anyone to be a drug counselor without a license unless they are a licensed social worker or mental ealth counselor. Additionally, it only licenses those residential facilities that provide medicaid paid services or those with licensed social work and medical professionals. It is the worst state to do rehab in, as there just is no regulation for all the rest who are reaping the benefits of being able to open up shop without a license.

You can read about Narconon in Nevada and it's licensing from correpondence I had with the state, here:   
http://www.scribd.com/doc/58524946/Narconon-NV-Licensing-Investigation

For best undersanding, read the emails from the botton on up.

In this correspondence with Wendy Lay, Executive Director of the Nevada Board of Examiners for Alcohol, Drug and Gambling Counselors, I requested she investigate the unlicensed Narconon Nevada aka Narconon Rainbow Canyon counselor who I found promoting on the internet that he is licensed. It turns out that none of the counselors at this facility are licensed by the state, nor is the facility itself licensed. Despite a Cease and Desist Order by Ms Lay, the facility is still operating with unlicensed counselors.

I later found out on my own that Narconon in Nevada managed to get around the facility licensing by stating they are a vocational rehabilitation company to the county dept of labor. NN Rainbow Canyon is one of their largest employers in that small population county. Supposedly they provide life skills that earned them the right to classify under that category. It's all hogwash and does not meet federal Labor standards of that definition. It's a residential rehab facilitity and operating illegally. And getting away with it. Corruption in NV runs deep, I supposed, but their day will come.

Previously, 'who me? ' posted the following link, which will give you and others more information on this facility's  as well as the addresses and contacts of all the agencies that regulate facilities and drug counselor in Nevada.
http://www.scribd.com/doc/17125312/Complaint-vs-Narconon-Nevada-Narconon-Southern-California-2009

Narconon program is the last program to send a dual diagnosis patient, no matter what Narconon reps and staff tell you. They are not equipt to help him, especially because they are ignorant of and  very much hostile to traditional mental health.  They have bno idea what you mean when you tell they of your boyfriend's diagnosis'. I am stymed that you or anyone else would allow this man to be held against his own wishes, not only once but twice, especially when he was forced to resort to threatening suicide in order to try to get out. Do you have any idea what this program is about? Have you read the workbooks? Do you know what it's like to go cold turkey from your addiction and from your medically necessary medications and be force fed vitamins and made to drink tons of Calcium Magnesium with watered down vinegar?

Are you aware that transporting an unwilling person across state lines is a federal offense?

As far as the holistic doctor, I understand your desire to help but Narconon staff do not even know about the things you brought from him. BTW, how could he treat your boyfriend if he never saw him as a patient? I thought that was a fundamental of all doctors.

Have you see the psych waiver he had to sign? You can read one here:
http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php/topic,444.msg2470.html#msg2470

I hope this information is of help. If you need to see the program books,  I can locate them on the internet for you to read. Please do provide more information on what his addiction is to, how he is doing now, and what you have to say to all the above.

Best wishes,

Mary

Hi MyssyG,

Sorry I was rushed and kind of hard on you in my previous reply. I mean you no ill will. I know how hard this must be. I went and reread your post and wanted to add some information that may help you with your questions, some of which have gone unanswered.

Yes, there has been physican and sexual abuse at Narconons across the USA & Canada. It concerns the Bullbaiting, which has been the cubject of multiple lawsuits against Narconons

Here are two big ones that discuss this
The Locatelli case complaint against NN Southern Califoirnia
http://www.scribd.com/doc/17118323/Locatelli-vs-Narconon-Southern-California-Narconon-Joshua-Hills-et-al

And the Mendoza v Narconon Soutehrn California Complaint
http://www.courthousenews.com/2009/03/09/Narconon.pdf

You may have already read about the Narconon in Canada complaints
http://forums.whyweprotest.net/threads/update-3-narconon-psychological-and-sexual-harassment.56381/



Below are the individual links to each of the  8 Narconon books your ex has to go through in the program. The theraputic TRs book 1 and the bullbaiting section within it will give you an idea of what is being done while the sexual harassment is going on. You would not believe what goes on during these routines. And the 'student is suposed to sit there and endure it. As you can read from the lawsuits, it is degrading acceped there and one gets in ethics trouble if they do not comply with doing these drills. The Ethics rules are another timng. You can read about them in book 6, 7, & 7

Book 2 is the : The New Life Detoxification Program Delivery Manual found separately here

The rest can be downloaded directly from megaupload. They come in pdf format. They were uploaded and posted about on this forum last year, as discussed here:

Narcono  program is mentally abusive as well. I have never hear of physical abuse hapening there, per se, but he may be taking about the invasion of personal space by the twin 'bullbaiting'  where physical contact occcurs. The physical abuse he's talking about may be an isolated situation but do not disbelieve him about the sexual abuse. I once corresponded with a doctor who sent their teen daughter to NN because they found an empty bottle of liquor in her room and wanted to nip any problem in the bud. What a mistake, The girl was sexually assaulted in a hallway by a staff member. The parent was do distraught that they got the gorl out and flown back home and because they the family could not  spend several months in CA while the case was investigated, they let it go, although police were called. So stuff happens at Narconon,e specially with the bullbaiting.

I hope this is helpful. Please get back to us on how it's going, unless Narconon already contacted you because of your post, which in that case, we wish you well and hope you'll come back and post or PM us  ( even under a new nic name if you are concerned) about how it's going.

I forget to mention this case, which eventually settle in court:
 
NarConon Survivor's Support Group
Tuesday, January 3rd, 2006 
 
 
Date: 2006-01-03 11:45
Subject: Scientology salesperson raped customer
Security: Public

http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/archive/2004/July/06/local/stories/04local.htm

/WATSONVILLE -- A woman who says she was raped at a drug- treatment center has sued Narconon of Northern California and its parent company, Narconon International, alleging she was assaulted by a staff member while undergoing treatment in November 2003.The suit alleges that when notified of the assault, staff at the Watsonville treatment center failed to respond in an appropriate manner and took the unidentified, out- of-state woman out of treatment. The Sentinel is not identifying the plaintiff because of the nature of the crime.In February, the incident was reported to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office, which investigated and turned it over to the District Attorney's Office. A decision on whether to prosecute has yet to be made, prosecutor Jeff Rosell said.Due to federal privacy laws, Narconon would not confirm that the woman was in their drug-treatment program. "We are taking this very seriously and are conducting an internal investigation," Narconon President Clark Carr said from the company's Los Angeles headquarters.Narconon, which has offered drug-treatment programs in California since 1970, is a subsidiary of the Association for Better Living and Education, founded in 1988. The company runs more than 100 rehabilitation and drug-prevention centers worldwide, including three in California.The suit seeks an unspecified amount in damages for the alleged assault and 15 other charges, including infliction of emotional distress, negligence and breach of contract. If found guilty, punitive damages are awarded based on the wealth of the defendant. Narconon of Northern California and Narconon International reported assets of $1.6 million and $1 million to the IRS in 2002, respectively.

This sucks as many of you know my personal feelings about Narconon . In fairness this must be posted here as it is factual information of which needs to be seen.

A friend of the families son did in fact go to the Narconon facility mentioned in this thread. He is currently doing well. I know, I know, many of you will say BUT BUT, my response to any retorts runs along the lines of, well life ain,t fair and some people do and do not get well within many many various modes of addiction treatment.

No hate. However, please understand that his is one case and we have heard many stories where things turned out differently. David Love and Mary McConnell communicate with Narconon victims on a regular basis who claim to have been harmed physically and/or psychologically.

There are over 40 complaints on The Ripoff Report and many more across the U.S. with state regulatory agencies and in Canada. There are multiple lawsuits against Narconon in several states. These complaints and lawsuits include allegations of physical and psychological harm, deception by NN representatives and staff members, and more.

Sadly, there have been reports of staff members drinking and using with patients, sexual and verbal abuse and even deaths.

Despite this mountain of evidence of potential harms, it's not surprising that one person emerged unscathed, if that's true.

This sucks as many of you know my personal feelings about Narconon . In fairness this must be posted here as it is factual information of which needs to be seen.

A friend of the families son did in fact go to the Narconon facility mentioned in this thread. He is currently doing well. I know, I know, many of you will say BUT BUT, my response to any retorts runs along the lines of, well life ain,t fair and some people do and do not get well within many many various modes of addiction treatment.

Do not hate on the messenger puleeze. O!##!O

Your feiend got well because he wanted to get well and stay well.  If he uses Narconon/Scientology 'tech' and is still affiliated with the program and scientology, watch your back.
I am a volunteer advocate for victims of the Narconon scam. I am a former scientologist. I post anonymously. Mary McConnell is my long time nom de plume. Feel free to contact me for assistance in righting the wrongs.
