June 9, 2017 my son went to Fresh start Narconon for what we thought was a medical rehap facility. I had found my son in desperate need of help. I turned to the internet to research help for drug addiction Wisconsn. I found number to call which truned out to be Narconon marketed as Fresh start.

The counselor on the phone told me everything I needed to hear. we where in a very desperate situation. He stated they have the best facility with a 90% success rate. He himself had attended and it is the only facility that has a proven record to help get him clean. They offer a medical detox, professional counseling, education and a potential for some job training o get him back on his feet. Everything I needed to hear.

I researched their web site looked great! They stated I needed to do an intervention someone would contact me to help set this up to get my son to the center in California. So we quickly moved forward since my son was in a very dark place at this time. I paid Fresh start also know as Narconon $33,000 for a approximate 5 month program and the intervention cost around $6,000.

After this all took place and I had more time to research this since I did not get any credentials from the person who came and took my son to California. I began to question my actions. What I found is horrifying NArconon uses bait and switch tactic to prey on families in time of need they offer pseudo-science and potentially dangerous treatment methods. Worst of all I didn't find this out until I paid and my son was their.

I took a flight the next day and removed him from the facility day 4. His grandpa went with me we found a very run down over crowded dirty facility. Drug rehab firms are required by law to engage in medical and scientifically based practices they do not meet that

. I requested a refund since my paper work states if he checked out in less than 7 days he would be eligable for a refund. They are trying to charge me $22,000 for 4 days I lost over $10,000 getting him to and from facility plus my time off work. This company needs to be stopped families need to be aware of the scam.

I found they own several search engines so when you think you are talking to someone local again it turns out to be Narconon.
