Vita Novus New Life Recovery Center / Neglect & False Advertising

Review updated:

I commented on this earlier; this is a follow-up.

I attended an alumni meeting recently and happened to mention these blogs. (My alumni consist of RNs. I am a retired psychiatric nurse). The subject drew interest among some of my colleagues as some of us, earlier in our careers, had worked in a treatment/recovery centre. So a couple of us decided this warranted further research which revealed that these bloggers were not only playing a guessing game but obviously had conjured up these stories and formed their own vindictive conclusions to retaliate because of their own misgivings. In other words, get your facts straight folks before making such stupid, false accusations!!! You need to look at your own lives and see why you went wrong. Firstly, if you’re not an ex employee, then perhaps you are one who was in recovery and should continue with follow-up?? Otherwise, why these vindictive remarks? Let’s clarify some things here: (listen up) Let it be known that Vita Novus has never reneged on any payments whatsoever; the allegations made on this board are completely false! Got it? As a matter of fact and for your information, the first location was on a ‘lease-to-own’ basis in which legitimate monthly payments were being made to the vendor. The second location was purchased (because there was a need for expansion) by another vendor. This vendor purchased the first location for his own abode. This location was also on a ‘lease-to-own’ basis where legitimate monthly payments were continuously met but the final sale didn’t close due to the greedy vendor wanting more, thus taking back his offer. In July 2010 there was a huge deposit made (was never defaulted) and once again, the premises DID NOT close due to any ‘default payments’ whatsoever (the vendor kept the money, close to $500, 000) but he will not get off that easy as this continues to be part of ongoing court proceedings! So, contrary to those false accusations made here (none of which were ever substantiated), Vita Novus NEVER left due to an eviction notice, but rather, moved to a bigger and better facility under the name of Lotus, which, by the way, is a program offered by Vita Novus! Again, get your facts straight!!

If you had all done your homework (research), you might have thought twice about your blogs ... but then again, maybe not! Bloggers like yourself are so vindictive that you’ll stop at nothing in your attempts to degrade someone, anyone! All those other comments made on this board were obviously done by the same disgruntled employees and/or patients who continue to be in denial by blatantly refusing to complete any program or seek further help offered by these programs! Yes, true that AA offers some support but for the most part, these patients need much more. These serious cases cannot be cured by AA alone. Having another drink or another ‘fix’ will only further your own lack of anger management (maybe another area you need help in?). Oh yes, IP identification reveals that these comments have been made by a handful of the same disgruntled people posting over and over again! People like you who try to damage the reputation of their selected victim, turn others against him and his facility and then post false information about him on websites. I’m sure that others have been stalked, harassed, defamed, or flamed by vindictive narcissists like you. Furthermore, research has shown that the person you (& others) are slandering, has never himself denied being in recovery and you all undoubtedly know that! That information has always been made known both on his website and to all prospective clients. I would venture to bet that many of you (the accusers) have been through the courts yourselves and know what we speak of here!! I would think from a healing standpoint, that being in recovery would serve as an ideal person to assist others who desperately seek help (like giving back to the community).

Oh and incidentally, staff turnover was necessary mainly because some were neither qualified nor good enough to help others or they didn’t have the passion required for the position. Consequently, they were replaced and the complainers you see here are venting because they were fired! So bottom line is, from what I understand, all 9 pages of what you see here will soon be removed by a court order already in process. Cowards who slander anyone (for that matter) never acknowledge their identity so obviously they are in denial themselves, hiding behind their computers. Oh and you know with certainty that John is an unethical lying criminal? That is definitely ‘slander’! In addition you have not only publicly mentioned him by name but have gone on to mention his home address! I’m sure you know that from a legal point of view, this would be considered an invasion of privacy and once again, ‘slander’. Do you really think that you can’t be identified by your IP address? Think again; you can easily be traced even though you hide behind your false identities and locations! It’s quite obvious by various comments made on this board that you appear to be the same people complaining over and over again, simply changing your handles etc. Do you really think you’re undermining someone’s intelligence here? Let’s face it, all of you know that what I’ve stated is true but obviously you haven’t thought about your own persona lately (or probably ever)... SO my advice to you is this: Go have another drink (or whatever) and take a good long look in the mirror and don’t forget your own transgressions!! It‘s certainly plain to see by various comments that YOU the accusers have a huge problem to deal with! Oh yes, and research has also shown that there are many recovered and satisfied Vita Novus patients out there who continue to work their programs and are leading normal productive lives!!!

    PLEASE GOOGLE THE WORDS, JOHN HAINES, SEXUAL ASSAULT, MUSKOKA RECOVERY, PICKEREL LAKE RECOVERY, VITA NOVUS, CEASE AND DESIST ORDERS, COURT DATE, ADDICTION CANADA TREATMENT NETWORK, DRUG DEALER, IMPERSONATING A LAWYER. SAME GUY, JOHN HAINES, SAME SCAM!!!

    Reposted from: http://www.reviewstalk.com/complaints-reviews/pickerel-lake-lodge-recovery-l114/page/14

    Court Date for John Haines: The meeting on Tuesday at Armourtownship was informative. John Haines is Stalling Again, so looks like the December Court Date is put off again. The paper work he did submit to the Town, well, it’s a joke. So, John Haines will continue to operate Illegally for now. We did talk about the name change to Vita Novus, and Addiction Canada Treatment Network.

    *** So, John Haines has opened shop again in York Region, Aurora, Newmarket area. The newer Illegal Rehab Centers are called, Addiction Canada Treatment Network and Vita Novus. He is referring to Pickerel Lake Recovery and Muskoka Recovery as Vita Novus now also. The Rehab Center’s down in Aurora are operating ILLEGALLY. Don’t forget How it Work’s Recovery, also, OPERATING ILLEGALLY!!!

    He tells everyone that they do not dispense Drugs/Medication, but they do. Again, Everyone, you have to call the Town of Aurora and Newmarket and let them know what he is doing and although they know, tell them all about his legal issues going on with Armourtownship, and the ‘THOUSANDS” HE OWES IN BILLS TO CONTRACTORS, ETC…,

    I understand Revenue Canada would like to speak to Former Clients, Contractors, etc…, about John Haines and his ILLEGAL OPERATIONS and the Six Million Dollars that he told Ted Jackson in Treatment Magazine that he has made. ALL HIS CURRENT OPERATIONS ARE ILLEGAL. I know, you are just trying to help people with addictions, right John?

    How about you are a Scam Artist, a Thief, and John, you are a Low Life. The Scum of the Earth! More Name Changes for your ILLEGAL OPERATIONS, Wow!!!

    Hey John, How’s the CARF stuff going. Everyone here is still waiting for you to Post the information. Google Addiction Canada Treatment Network and Vita Novus, Kijiji. Yes, he is saying that his Illegal Rehab Center’s are being certified by CARF in he add. Really John??? So Everyone, make sure to call CARF and let them know about John Haines and his Adds making Claims of being Certified by them!

    As someone said before, the first thing CARF will tell you Mr. BidLaw, is to get Zoned Properly with All your Current Illegal Operations, To pay your bills there Joe, P Eye. You are a Joke Man!

    Minutes from December 11/2012 – I see Gail Smith from Newmarket, John’s buddy and PR Lady was present at the meeting. When you Knowingly work for a Crook…, A Scam Artist, well Gail, you go Go Girl!!!

    Nothing has changed! John Haines is still being taken to Court for the Illegal Operation of Pickerel Lake Recover Center which changed to Muskoka Recovery Center which John Haines now is advertising as Vita Novus. He is stalling going to Court according to the Town of Armour. But don't worry John, the Town and Local Residents are going to Give You Your Day in Court!

    Be advised, HE STILL HAS A CEASE AND DESIST ORDER TO SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN. WHICH HE IS IGNORING!

    I spoke with CARF this week. Vita Novus/Addiction Canada Treatment Network or any of John Haines Illegal Rehab Operations are Not Registered or Accredited by them as John Haines Claims. Call the above number and speak with Judy or June. Also notice the “great review” John Haines gave himself at: http://www.weblocal.ca/user/2vntzkc – Does anyone notice that “Flexman” is the Author of both http://www.weblocal.ca/user/2vntzkc and https://www.naatp.org/facility/vita-novus-inc/ - I know, must be a coincidence, right John??? Wow, saying you are LICENSED BY CARF WHEN YOU ARE NOT? I'm surprised that you would tell a lie John, Shocking!

    Also, please go to: https://www.prbuzz.com/health-a-fitness/89023-vita-novus-treatment-center.html

    Notice the Vita Novus Review link on this and many other adds by john haines. When you click the “Reviews” it just goes back to their website. Funny thing is when you Google Vita Novus Complaints, well, there is a lot out there.

    (Just a Sample)
    https://www.google.ca/#hl=en&tbo=d&sclient=psy-ab&q=vita+novus+recovery+center+complaints&oq=vita+novus+recovery+center+complaints&gs_l=serp.12...0.0.2.22152.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0.les%3B..0.0...1c.ing6eNNL1qo&pbx=1&bav=on.2, or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&fp=ad58aa7848033ec4&biw=1270&bih=641


    Again, this man is still running his Scams. He is Operating Illegally in Aurora and Newmarket also. They have been contacted. Did you get a Cease and Desist from them yet John???

    Hey how is the CARF stuff going??? The answer, IT'S NOT GOING. THIS IS CALLED FALSE ADVERTISING JOHN!

    SO AGAIN, NOTHING HAS CHANGED!!!
