Tulsa Psychiatrist Named to Evaluate Narconon Facility - 1990-12-14
Dr. John Chelf, a board-certified psychiatrist specializing in addiction, will make the review and report to the State Mental Health Board, said Rosemary Brown, a spokeswoman with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health.
The Narconon Chilocco New Life Center last month successfully blocked board members from reviewing reports from an earlier inspection. They claimed the documents were biased against the facility because of its ties with the Church of Scientology.
Mental health board members last month talked of naming the agency's advocate general, the person who represents complaining patients of mental health and substance abuse facilities but reconsidered after Narconon objected, Brown said.
