Several federal lawsuits now target an unlicensed Nevada drug and alcohol rehab center first exposed by the I-Team. Patients and the families say the rehab center isn’t curing addictions; it’s trying to recruit people into Scientology.
The I-Team first reported in Nov. 2012 that former patients at Narconon’s Caliente facility said they underwent ineffective treatments.
“There were times they would throw an ashtray up there and they would say, ‘try to levitate this with your mind. Control this ashtray,’” Justin VanderGriend told the I-Team in 2012 interview.
