This former client would like to prevent others from being scammed by Narconon. She claims that Narconon had no qualified staff while she was there; a physician had to google information about high blood pressure and did nothing. She was lied to, but ultimately was motivated by her circumstances to get clean after leaving Narconon.
According to this family, promises of a complete rehabilitation, psychotherapy, and a 96% success rate sold them on Narconon Vista Bay for their loved one. Allegedly, the client was transferred to Placerville, suspended from the program due to a minor disciplinary infraction and dropped off at a homeless shelter where he relapsed within 1 day. A request for a refund allegedly went unanswered by Narconon they say.
