Consumer alleges that she was falsely told there was no connection between Narconon and the Church of Scientology, and disputes the 86% success rate claim of the program. She states her son was also misled into an internship to work at the Fort Collins facility after he graduated from the program in Warner Springs. He was denied the minimum wage he was promised and only paid $50 a week while doing manual labor work for construction and maintenance tasks. Her son also had other bad experiences that led to his depression and relapse after leaving, which left the mother in fear for his life.
A concerned mother and wife contacted the police about their son/husband's experience at Narconon Colorado and requested standby to collect his belongings. Ultimately, he was placed into protective custody and hospitalized. Physicians informed the family that he was delusional and hallucinating. Poudre Valley Hospital and Mountain Crest Hospital were making reports to the State Board of Health about Narconon.
The complainant received a promise from Narconon to send their son and his girlfriend to separate Narconon facility locations, due to their intimate relationship. Allegedly, Narconon did not live up to this agreement. The son and girlfriend were sent to the same location for detox where the girlfriend allegedly talked their son into leaving after only 4 to 5 days. Narconon refused to provide a refund. This complainant later filed a lawsuit against Narconon, found here.
