This complainant was not sent a contract to sign until after payment had been made and the family member was already at A Forever Recovery. The contract included many clauses the person did not want to sign, but did anyway due to the fact that the family member was already there. The contract included a clause which stated that after a 10-day period there would be no refund. The family member was not allowed to contact the family until the refund grace period had passed. Once they had spoken with the family member at the facility, they did more research and were seeking their money back and an investigation by the Attorney General's office of A Forever Recovery for their "shady practices".
Plaintiff Mr. Teague thought he was going to Narconon Freedom Center but instead he was diverted over to former Narconon Stone Hawk executive Per Wickstrom's other facility, A Forever Recovery (AFR) for 'detox' of abuse of prescribed medications and alcoholism. Soon he was returned to Narconon Freedom Center, where he continued to suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms without any assistance by Narconon.

A detailed complaint with times and dates showing how a patient was turned away after 48 hours due to a pre-existing condition which A Forever Recovery had been aware of. This was after payment had been made for detox. Once the patient had left the A Forever Recovery facility, phone calls were not returned and the complainant feels very mislead.
