Scientology Drug Rehab: Danette Elliott Sues Narconon Vista Bay for $1M, Says She Was Duped Into Church-Sponsored Program - 2011-07-21
In a lawsuit against Narconon Vista Bay, first reported by Courthouse News Service, Elliott claims that the alcohol rehab program doubles as a recruiting tool for the Church of Scientology as well as a way for the Church to make money. Elliott says she forked over $34,000 for treatment.
A Catholic, Elliott says that she was told the program was nondenominational and was offended by the proselytizing on behalf of the Church of Scientology and the dennunciation of mainstream religions. Elliott also accuses the facility of letting unlicensed addiction specialists provide treatment, which in some cases included reading the books of L. Ron Hubbard.
