These parents became concerned when their 19-year-old son was transferred from Best Drug Rehab to Tranquility Detox, without their knowledge. According to the parents, an intake counselor in Manistee refused to let them speak to their son on the phone. More research about the Narconon program caused alarm. Calls were placed to the Michigan Attorney General's office and Law Enforcement in both counties, where officials assured them the program was dangerous. One or both parents traveled to Michigan to remove son from the program.. On arrival at the facility, their son refused to leave the program, but appeared heavily medicated. He wrote a letter of refusal, on the spot, which the parents believe was coached or coerced.
