Escaping from a Scientology drug rehab center: A transcript - 2014-09-12
Recently, we received a message through Facebook from someone we didn't know. She was frantic, worried about getting her cousin out of a drug rehab clinic in Michigan. The clinic, Best Drug Rehabilitation, is one of several Michigan facilities either owned or run by Per Wickstrom or a member of his family, and is modeled on Scientology's drug rehab network, Narconon. Like Narconon centers, Best Drug uses Scientology training rather than drug counseling on its patients, who are not informed ahead of time of that link. We've provided this transcript from actual Facebook messages, with only slight edits for clarity and spelling, and we've changed the name of the woman who contacted us to "Anne."
