OKLAHOMA EMPANELS GRAND JURY TO INVESTIGATE SCIENTOLOGY'S DRUG REHAB - 2014-06-11
Eric Tenorio The Underground Bunker has learned that a multi-county Oklahoma state grand jury has been empaneled to look into criminal insurance fraud allegations against Scientology's flagship drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead.
Scientology's celebrities — Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Kirstie Alley — have each promoted Scientology's drug rehab network, Narconon, as a model program. But revelations about Narconon's deceptive business model — that it offers Scientology training rather than drug counseling, for example — has resulted in an increasing number of law enforcement investigations and civil lawsuits around the country. The network's flagship facility, Narconon Arrowhead in eastern Oklahoma, has especially been under scrutiny after three patients died in a nine-month period in 2011 and 2012, resulting in county and state investigations of the facility.
Last year, a similar Narconon center in the Atlanta area was shut down following a wrongful death lawsuit and a state and county investigation of insurance and credit card fraud, which is ongoing. Now, we've learned that the state of Oklahoma is also investigating insurance fraud allegations regarding Narconon Arrowhead.
