OK - Third death at facility in 9 months sparks drug rehab center investigation

Oklahoma drug rehabilitation center under investigation after third death in nine months (Daily Oklahoman)
Quote:
CANADIAN — A Pittsburg County drug rehabilitation center is under investigation after a third patient died in nine months.

The most recent incident at Narconon Arrowhead involves Stacy Dawn Murphy, 20, of Owasso, whose body was found at the center about 9:20 a.m. Thursday, Sheriff Joel Kerns said.

“Due to the number of deaths at the center, an investigation has been opened,” Kerns said. He said the center has about 150 patients.

Her father, Robert Murphy, said: “I want to see a full and complete investigation by the OSBI. I want answers why my daughter didn't receive medical attention, and due to the negligent acts, it is my belief they (Narconon Arrowhead) are unsafe and should be shut down.”

I can't believe this is still happening. Why haven't all Narconon Facilities been shut down.

With it being founded on the beliefs of L. Ron Hubbard I seriously doubt the 85% success rate it is touting. Scientology seems to have it's hands in everything these days. And it always turns out bad.

There are a lot of articles and several videos on this, from past stories and people's experiences. Since they don't believe in medication, no one is getting medication. Not even if it is for blood pressure, etc... I have to say, you cannot just stop drugs or alcohol cold turkey either, if you have a long term habit. All major organs shut down. You need the right medication....

These poor families...If only they knew.

From the article, her dad: "His daughter's stay cost the family $1,500 a day, which insurance paid, he said." Whoa.

You are absolutely correct 21merc7 !

Are there any real MD's there? I don't see how they could deny proper medical treatment to someone withdrawing from drugs or alcohol without losing their license! I don't even know where to begin to address the foolishness of failure to properly treat high blood pressure! Stupid, irresponsible, medical neglect!

Uhmm, so they get paid $ 1,500 a DAY per person for basically providing a bed, since they don't believe in medication OR psychiatry? My God, it seems little more than a flop house designed to make Scientology rich. I understand Scientology pays little mind to burying their dead either.

My opinion only.

Insurance companies pay out for this? Non evidence based detox?? I am appalled... I have worked extensively with detoxing addicts, they need meticulous medical management not saunas and vitamins.

“It appears she brought back with her prescription drugs that she did not have a prescription for,” he said.

I want to make it clear that I do not support the 'rehab' center but from the Sheriff's statement, it looks like she OD'd which could've easily happened anywhere else

and I would think/hope her family investigated the center prior to her going there and knew what they were all about

I don't know anything about the other deaths, except that it appears one family successfully sued

I do hope if there is wrongdoing, they are shut down but I don't see how they can be held responsible for providing what they advertise they will provide

Scientology Drug Program Narconon's Licensing "Extremely Vulnerable" After Oklahoma Deaths, Says Insider (Village Voice)
Quote:
---
But perhaps the most surprising component of the church's recent rise in negative attention seemed to come out of nowhere, and may turn out to be one of the biggest challenges it's facing.

Scientology's drug treatment program, Narconon, is being consumed in a conflagration of its own making.

Daily Mail enters the affray, with many pictures, a video, and a note regarding NBC's The Rock Center with Brian Williams in a segment set to air on Thursday.

Rehab facility linked to Scientology blamed for deaths of three patients
who underwent 'five hours a day in sauna and mega doses of vitamins'
