McClure v. v. Narconon Fresh Start d/b/a Rainbow Canyon Retreat; ABLE; Narconon International; et. al.

...Plaintiff spoke to Dan Carmichael, who falsely promised him that Rainbow Retreat Canyon was an appropriate facility for his son. He said that he would would be under the care of licensed medical professionals, would receive extensive counseling for substance abuse from highly trained addictions counselors, that the success rate for Fresh Start was over 76%, that Fresh Start’s sauna detoxifying program would reduce or eliminate his drug cravings, and that the program was secular and didn't involve the practice or study of any religion.

Why don’t people research Narconon first, before they go or send someone there?

.... We also think it was very perceptive of Tony to pick up on this, as I did (me being in Georgia myself, I couldn’t miss it): What’s particularly frustrating about this lawsuit is that in April 2013 when the plaintiff, Dan Kelly, fell for Narconon’s come-on and flew to the San Diego facility, he was living in Georgia — yes, right where Narconon was going through one of its worst meltdowns ever.
