Scientology's drug rehab system hit with tenth federal fraud lawsuit by Las Vegas attorney - 2014-05-28
On August 30, 2012, Charis Yates and Dean Pugh were looking for a drug rehab facility for their daughter Beret. They were told the usual story by representatives of "Fresh Start" - what some Narconon facilities are calling themselves now. They were told about Fresh Start's 76-percent success rate, that their daughter would receive "extensive substance abuse treatment," and that a sauna program would flush drug toxins from her body, reducing or eliminating her drug cravings.
And, like so many others, the couple was told that their daughter would be under the supervision of medical professionals.
They paid $33,000 for Beret's treatment.
