Woman alleges medical issues stem from Scientology program at drug rehab center - 2015-11-10
A Clinton Township woman alleges she vomits blood and has a swollen abdomen as a result of her forced participation in a sauna program likened to a Church of Scientology ritual at an addiction treatment facility in Albion.
Candice Tyler was eventually in the sauna five hours a day while taking Niacin, also known as vitamin B3 or nicontinic acid, and had an allergic reaction, which lead to headaches. She started coughing blood and was taken in early 2013 to a hospital emergency room, according to a lawsuit filed in March against Narconon Freedom Center.
It is pending in Calhoun County Circuit Court, demands a jury trial, and asks for more than $25,000 in damages.
