Kicked to the curb: Penta vs. Narconon Gulf Coast , et al

Post by AnonyMary » Mon Sep 22, 2014 6:52 pm

Important Narconon Reviews report.

Kicked to the curb: Penta vs. Narconon Gulf Coast Inc. and Deborah Ross
In 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.

Thanks, Mary; you've helped organize the anti-Narconon info and made it easier for victims to get the courage to sue. Narconon continues to produce sad victim stories, incompetent lawyers, can't-change-the-tech-so-we-get-more-lawsuits-insanity, and denial by Miscavige. Kudos for keeping us informed.

Yes, they claim 90% success rate. But such high percentage always looks suspicious. I feel sorry for the family, but at the same time they have responsibility to check all available Internet data on Narconon, not just its promotional literature with unrealistic data.

Thank you, Don Carlo. However, Ethercat gets the credit for managing the information and creating the platforms of Narconon Reviews and Reaching For The Tipping Point Forum to reach the broader public. I do some of there writing but my main job is to research, gather information and then promote what gets posted of importance. There are several other unsung heroes helping on all this, though there's never enough time or help for all the info we gather, but we're getting done what we can.

We have a ways to go in getting the public aware of the importance of checking agencies and the internet for reviews and complaints. Getting article out and into Google indexing is important. After we set up the site and got it rolling, we all needed a break.. life and such being a priority. But we are focused now on getting many more articles out in the very near future on stories relayed to us and legal complaints filed and copies obtained across the USA.

Thanks for your much needed support on what's being done :)

Yes, the success rate issue is one of the many points being raised in court cases... it was even discussed and investigated in the the Oklahoma state mental health and facility licensing investigation when looking into shutting down the OK facility (a report now being released only to attorneys, thanks to Gaary Richardson, Esq of OK)

Unfortunately, most rehab referral website people look at and contact on the internet for help are deceptively run by Narconons or FSMs or what we call unbranded programs not using the Narconon name on their site.

At Reaching For The Tipping Point Forum ( http://reaching4.info ) we get many complaints about it. We have many posts reporting this type of internet activity, documenting the deception. In one thread in particular, we try to post links and information on
them. It's no where near complete... just volunteers posting when they have time to update it, but it's growing. Check it out:

Thanks for your support.
