Instead of a nice rehabilitation center, professional health care staff and counselors, and round-the-clock medical staffing, as promised by "Joe" the intake counselor at Narconon Freedom Center, when the Plaintiff arrived, she found dilapidated facilities which were cited by the Calhoun County Health Department for violations, a single nurse, and staff who had, for the most part, been recruited from former patients who had recently completed the Narconon program and were frequently "quarantined off" because of their continued use of alcohol and illegal drugs. You must read the entire complaint to get a full picture of life at Narconon Freedom Center.
In addition to the standard complaint of facilities delivering Scientology instead of substance abuse counseling, this lawsuit tells of a difficult withdrawal period with a visit to a hospital emergency room, poor conditions at the facility, lack of medical care, drug use by employees, and improperly cooked food which made the clients sick. The plaintiffs in this lawsuit allege breach of contract, negligence, fraud, and premises liability. Narconon Freedom Center failed to meet their duty to provide a safe environment, they claim. Among other requests, the plaintiffs seek injunctive relief in the form of an immediate suspension of the Niacin and Sauna program via a temporary restraining order.
