The funeral is being held today for 28 year old Narconon victim
Patrick W Desmond, who died Wednesday, June 11 at the apartment
complex that houses Narconon GA students.

Condolences to his family and friends from NarCoNon victims
everywhere.

More information is forthcoming. An anonyposse of advocates is hard at
work getting that oppressive program investigated and shut down.

Narconon of Georgia, Inc and officers Robert V. Schmidt DDS, Mary
Rieser and Debra MacIntyre and the landlord of the apartment complex
are in deep doo doo.

Let me guess: no physician resident or on-call, no trained med-techs,
plenty of hot sauna, vitamins, strident statements to the victim that he
was out-ethics and at cause for his own health problem. Very late call
to 911 probable, if at all. Frantic effort to cover up everything
written about the victim. Victim taken to a Scentologist physician or
the dentist.

Drug addicts die regularly.

Regardless of where they are being treated.

Characterizing him as a victim of the program he was involved
in indicates bias and or ignorance on your part.

Except that there aren't Narconon victims everywhere. They
don't have any higher percentage of deaths than any other
drug treatment program.

Oh please. The fact is that you are glad that person died.

It gives you an opportunity to express some more of the hatred
that festers in your sick mind.

I don't know any girls named Patrick. And she said details are
forthcoming. That probably means the family needs some time to grieve.

As to cause of death, who knows. An awful lot of people have reported
that their kids wound up in hospital during their stay at Narconon.
Funny, that. Just hilarious.

NarCONons are so remote, by design, that picketing is worthless. Guise
need to file objections to NarCONon with each state and locality,

This is correct. Once more details are available, I suggest a blast of
faxes and e-mails to the Surgeon General's office demanding that the
make a public statement or put a warning on the website.

Or maybe the FDA? These quacks are prescribing dangerous doses of
vitamins and the cal-mag concoction.

We don't need to physically be outside of a Narconon. Our raids
accomplish something OG was never able to do, the distribution of
thousands of fliers. With Narconon's immense and misleading presence all
over the web; from Narconon hype sites to "informational" sites that
refer you to Narconon, every day someone is running into them while
seeking help for a loved one. And, if we could save ONE person with our
efforts, I think we should do so.

I suggest that if people want to have credibility, they refrain from
jumping to conclusions until more facts are known. This is not to
defend Narconon, but rather, to encourage people to find out what the
evidence is, rather than just angrily react.

In a similar case of a young woman from Greece who was found dead at
Narconon Zutphen in Holland, I got first hand information that she was
already very ill in the evening. Staff decided not to call the doctor
until the morning in an attempt not to disturb the neighbors. (Outside
office hours a doctor in Holland comes straight from the hospital in a
sort of mini ambulance, with horns and flashing lights in case of an
emergency.)
But in the morning she was dead for hours, as she was stone cold.
Autopsy revealed she had used heroin, which was given to her by one of
the other "students". This guy was arrested. Narconon is in no way any
different from other rehabilitation facilities. Accept it uses TRs and
other quackery based on Hubbard's fantasies and is a recruiting tool
for the CULT.

Good plan. It would be very good to do some fliers about Narconon and
all of ITS front groups.

Actually I could see raiding a Narconon facility, no matter how
remote, if a local TV station wanted to send out a newscaster to
cover it and interview somebody on the spot.

Since I'm not really into the hive mind, I have no idea.
Suggestions have been made about a Narconon theme, but Anons decided
to go with the spai vs sci theme for next month.

Sorry for the lag but the information needed to be checked out and
clarified. There was alot of sadness connected to this story, as
Patrick W Desmond was a very popular guy with a very loving family.

Here's what I can tell you:

Patrick Desmond of Viera FL was a returning student/ patient of
Narconon GA. He had been in GA for 6 months and graduated the program,
but came back to Narconon two weeks before his death due to a relapse.
He was probably at the stage of doing the sweat program, although I
don't have all the facts about that yet.

Narconon GA is only licensed as an outpatient facility , currently
monitoring the compliance and paperwork of the program. In the past
have been sanctioned for opetrating illegally an a residental program,
which I think is the case here. Since they is not licensed to run a
detox center nor the sauna and vitamin part of the program ( requires
a licensed medical professsional to dole out and monitor the effects
of the vitamins), they supposedly farm it out. This may explain why
the facility on Peachtree looks vacant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKyle6fYca0

If anyone knows where the Sauna program is happening, please email me.

Anyway, according to the reports I have received:

Patrick was living in an apt building that also houses the staff
'monitors' who are supposed to be monitoring thre patients. On June
11th, under the watchful eye of 2 monitors, Patrick, a man who
preferred alcohol to drugs, was taken by either another patient or a
staff member ( someone named Brandon,) out to a place called the Bluff
in Atlanta, where he was introduced for the first time to Heroin.
Although 911 was called and he seemed better at one point, it was that
heroin which eventually killed him that night.

Narconon will try to say that Patrick is part of the 30% who don't
make it from the 70% who do but that would be a lie because the
program that 'guarantees' it's help just messed up big time. Illegally
operating as a residential program, selling a residential program to
victims and their loved ones and not providing the care promised is
negligence and fraud. I will keep you updated as the info come in.


Here is link to the obit and

I doubt that. Scientology gets away with kidnapping and murder --
they tied Lisa McPherson to her bed to keep her from escaping and
they murdered her, and not one Scientology crime boss ever went to
trial leave along face the death penalty there in Florida for the
crime. Count on the Scientology crime syndicate getting away scott
free with this one, too.

Maybe, maybe not. This is not a "church" but a "non-profit" private
drug treatment program that already got into some trouble. Scientology
might try to defend them, or it might say they were out tech squirrels
and throw them under the bus.

Yes, or find a judge who sends people to Narconon as a plea bargain
alternative to jail, and demonstrate at the courthouse.

As I understand, this guy went back to Narconon to convince the court
that he was making an honest effort to get cleaned up. I'm only
speculating, but looks as if he may have had a second or third DUI
arrest, and was facing a jail sentence if he didn't go into a rehab
program.

That would be pretty typical for the US.

Sounds less like the cult's "detox program gone wrong" as it does "detox

scandalous refund".

Did Patrick have any contact with someone in the press before his return to
the NarCONon program and subsequent death?

I don't think so, Rev. According to the info I received, he went back
because he flunked a court-mandated breathalizer test.

What Mary posted sounds quite plausible to me, although I don't see
why someone from the facility (student, patient, minder or whatever)
would take him to some low life dive and get him to try heroin for the
first time.

I keep reading about so much drug use at these Narconon facilities,
with complicity of the staff. Pretty sloppy management, wouldn't you
say?

We definately don't have the complete story yet and I have no idea
about Patrick having contacted the press in the past. What I can say
is that I have ben told that he and his family decided that returning
to the program was in his best interests at the time because of he
relapsed to drinking on one occasion.
I have not been contacted by any reporters but certainly anyone with
information on anything related to this matter can contact me and I
can follow up. I have received emails and I am only posting
information I can verify and information that won't spoil the
investigation. Narconon Int is trying to cover this up. They have been
down in Atlanta and some staff have been fired. I and others have
contacts providing information that is filling in the blanks, and for
now the family needs time to grieve.

The big difference here is the victim is not property of the Scientology
organization, rather a customer whose parents paid big bucks and
expected some kind of responsible stewardship on the part of Narconon to
keep their son safe, if not happy.

This is not the first time there's been a death due to Narconon
negligence. The tally is rising. At some point, the death toll from this
program and its unqualified staff members will no longer be ignored.
I hope this death is that final straw.

One of the parents interviewed on the Vince Daniels show claimed that
Kate Wickstrom's brother was dealing drugs inside the stonehawk facility.

It appears that Narconon misrepresents the security of their facilities.
Somewhat...

Surely if the court had been that uninformed, there should be plenty of
evidence to display - at a massive protest on the stes of the court..
