My son was there for about 12 hours! I was promised the world for his addiction! Just to find out it's all bs! Funny they take insurance but my blue cross blue sheild wouldn't cover/ they needed a check for 15,000$ and they would solve all problems! Sick ass people ! The staff are not even state regulated ! Please do not send your worse enemy there! Unless u want them to starve and get bugs' gross'

WARNING: DO NOT GO HERE! IT IS A SCAM! Narconon is a front to raise money and recruit people to the cult of Scientology. Also, don't buy it if they tell you your insurance approved your stay there. I was told my insurance would reimburse me for a large chunk of my costs, only to be told by my insurance company that they "do not recognize [Narconon] as a health care provider". Many members of the staff are only recent graduates of the program themselves, having moved immediately (I mean the same day) from completing the program to being a staff member, all while still living at the facility. How can someone who hasn't even been tested out after rehab in the "real" world help me? Also, many of the staff members are dating eachother, which in my opinion causes a conflict of interest. Do not believe the lies from them. If you still are considering going here, just do an internet search for narconon rip off OR scam OR complaints. If only I had simply researched them online before going there I could have saved a lot of money and wasted time.

Details:

Our son had a positive experience at Albion's Freedom Center. Scientology was not forced on him, counselors were helpful and supportive, my husband and I were able to talk with liason people (of course, they did not tell us everything we wanted to know, but there is a limit to what they can say). Our insurance covered all costs, but we insisted that Freedom Center make all necessary calls to be certain that would happen. I'm sorry others did not have a good experience, especially when so much is at stake.
