Best Drug Rehab Ripped us off for $18,000.00 S STAY AWAY Manistee Michigan
My husband was in Best Drug Rehab. We spent between $18,000 and $20,000 dollars for him to go there. We were misled by the website. No mention of this being run by Church of Scientology. They promised healthy food. He ate lots of hot dogs. They violated his civil rights. He was allowed to go to a separate church at first. They did give him and some others a ride in a van to a Christian Church a few miles away, since my husband and some others are not interested in Scientology. One day my husband got mad at the bus driver who was texting and driving and told him off. At church, during service one of the "higher-ups" showed up, pulled on my husband's arm and said "lets go" and pulled him out of church. After this, The pastor of the church was not allowed to go up and visit the residents. This pastor is very nice and that is how my husband started going to the little church. It was a big part in his recovery. Another time, my husband was going to go to church and they told him he couldnt and he said he was going anyways. They then told him if he left they would call the police. He said he wasnt doing anything wrong and since he wasnt court ordered to be there, even the police wouldnt stop him. They said he didnt have his ID on him and the cops would arrest him for that. Being on parole, he was intimidated enough not to go. BDR had taken his ID from him upon entry in this program and WOULD NOT give it back. There was a lot of intimidation from some of the Security staff members who were with the NATION OF ISLAM. One in particular who wanted to fight my husband and would get in his face alot. He was treated like an inmate at a prison. He was forced to take weird Scientology courses. If he didnt they threatened to throw him out with only $10.00 and take him to the bus station, which is what they do if you are caught using drugs up there. When I went to pick him up after 3 months of rehab, I was just in the waiting area, when I was told by staff that I had to sign a confidentiality paper where I wouldnt speak out about them or report anything negative about them. I refused to sign!! I wonder if there is any legal recourse to get our money back? My husband had to sign the confidentiality clause to enter the program but his CIVIL LIBERTIES were violated!
