Kicked to the curb: Penta vs. Narconon Gulf Coast Inc. and Deborah Ross
Read on for more and see the lawsuit hereIn mid September of 2012, Domenic J. Penta, Jr., age 44, had been at Narconon Gulf Coast for almost 2 months. Counting on the 90% success rate promised by Narconon Gulf Coast, his parents had paid $40,000 for him to attend. But unbeknownst to his parents, Dominic had been wrongfully kicked out of the program and dropped off at a hotel without any funds. He died of a drug overdose in the area shortly thereafter.
On May 12, 2014, the parents of the late Domenic J. Penta, Jr. age 44, filed a lawsuit against Narconon Gulf Coast, Inc. and its Director, Deborah Ross.
The Pentas claim that, through oral representations and its website, Narconon made misrepresentations to the Pentas such as a 90% success rate, that the Narconon treatment program was based on medically accepted addiction treatments, that their son would receive personalized psychotherapy sessions with a licensed mental health counselor, that he would have access to an on-site physician, that there would be weekly phone meetings to advise the Pentas of their son’s progress and that Narconon and Ross made assurances that their son would remain in the Narconon program until he completed the program.
None of these promises were kept, the complaint states.
