These parents allege they were promised the "highest success rate in the field of drug rehabilitation, luxury-leisurely resort accommodations, drug education program, jacuzzi" and more. The complaint is cut off at that point. We can only assume that Narconon did not live up to its promises.
These are documents in which the specific Narconon or Narcon-clone is not specified.
Clark Carr, President of Narconon International, sues personally and on behalf of others he claims were defrauded by Defendants individually and as officers of NAFC. This case is considered by many to be a diversion tactic from NAFC's lawsuit against Carr, Narconon International, ABLE International, Church of Scientology International, Religious Technology Center, David Miscavige and approximately 80+ other defendants on fraud and misuse of trademarks. http://narcononreviews.net/lawsuits/nafc-v-narconon-and-church-of-scientology-many-defendants/
Scientology, drugs, secrecy, theft and bedbugs were the main themes of this respondent's survey. This former client claims that her family found Narconon on the internet; they were lied to from the beginning, about the program and the facility.
This survey respondent claims he was referred to Narconon by Tom Cruise. The program had no medical supervision while he was there, but he was offered the special "Cruise module." He felt bamboozled after realizing the program was scientology, and later relapsed. He eventually went through an accredited program with medical supervision and got clean. He is no longer is in touch with Cruise, who he believes is in need of psychological help or an intervention to get out of scientology.
Complainants allege Narconon informed them that insurance would reimburse 40% of the cost of their son's treatment (total $33,000). This turned out to be inaccurate as the insurance denied the claim. Later, they discovered there were other inconsistencies between what they were told and what actually occurred while their son was at Narconon.
Despite multiple requests to Narconon Southern California to stop sending mail, complainant states that he continues to receive mail about the organization at his address. Wants to be removed from Fresh Start's mailing list. FTC law violation listed as Deception/Misrepresentation.
This is a complaint to FTC about Narconon's use of false success rates in the deception of vulnerable consumers.
A former client disputes Narconon's claim to a 79% success rate and discloses what s/he experienced when they entered the facility as a minor. The client is a former graduate of the program who claims first hand knowledge of half the staff being former clients, dozens of health code violations, and an unreported rape of a 15 y/o girl by a 25 y/o staff member. The client also states his/her Scientologist parents were discouraged by Scientology from sending their child anywhere else, which resulted in the patient learning more about doing drugs inside the program than at home.
This former client was removed from the Narconon Fresh Start program. Narconon agreed in December of 2008 to issue a pro-rated refund of $13,800. No refund received after 9 months.
The consumer in this case never entered the Narconon program after making payment. A complaint was filed with BBB due to a delay in receiving a refund. BBB assisted the consumer in obtaining their refund.
