In February of 2012, I was sent by my family to Narconon Gulf Coast. I had spoken with the "intake specialist" (son of the owners of this facility) who assured me that Narconon was NOT affiliated with Scientology. My family and I had never heard of Narconon, knew nothing about it, but we were in a desperate state and looking to quickly get me into a rehab facility. So, taking the word of the intake person, I agreed to go to Narconon.
I was at Narconon Gulf Coast for 75 days. From repeated lying about their affiliation with the Church of Scientology (despite L Ron Hubbard's name being on ALL their course material) to verbal abuse from the CEO of the facility to racist/homophobic comments from staff, allowance of sexual harassment in the "course room", to nothing but Scientology propoganda presented under the guise of "recovery", this place was a complete joke.
It is one of the most expensive "drug rehabs", and you will be hard pressed to get this covered by your insurance. It is 100% affiliated with Scientology - don't believe the lies of the owners. This is NOT a drug treatment program but rather another way for the Church of Scientology to make money and brainwash unsuspecting victims in their worst times of need.
