Oklahoma’s State Senate today passed SB 295 with a unanimous vote of 43 to 0, and now the bill — aimed at tightening regulation of drug rehab facilities in the state — will go to Governor Mary Fallin, who is expected to sign it into law.
The new statute is a direct result of recent deaths at Scientology’s flagship drug rehab center, Narconon Arrowhead, which is in the eastern part of the state. Three patients at the facility died between October 2011 and July 2012, resulting in multiple state and county investigations and numerous lawsuits, all of which are still pending.
This is Miscavige’s worst nightmare.
Mary Rieser and anyone else at Narconon Atlanta will likely be thrown under the bus if ONLY because Miscavige figures they are so tainted that ANYTHING done to try to help defend them will blow back on the church and him because this whole Narconocalypse is being watched SO closely by the media.
I suspect his biggest concern right now is that this is a breach in the wall that has held back law enforcement/govt agencies from conducting any criminal prosecutions of anything related to Scientology in the US for decades. Not since the GO raids has anything like this happened. Will this small crack widen and some other government agencies will decide they can get through the breach in what has been an impenetrable fortress for more than 30 years?
Miscavige sits on the horns of a real dilemma — what do you do?
Carry on David Miscavige. You are your own worst enemy.
There’s nothing I can add to what Mike Rinder already said here.
Scientology Inc is already dead. Now the process begins of seeing that the criminals of the Sea Organization are going to be brought to justice.
It’s been a long time coming.

Pete Combs at Atlanta’s WSB Radio announced today that state and county officials entered Scientology’s drug rehab center in the Atlanta area — Narconon Georgia — and confiscated evidence in an ongoing state investigation of insurance fraud.
Narconon IS Scientology. It’s run by the Sea Organization and fees run upward to the Sea Organization licensing front group ABLE
Scientology whistle blower Tory Christman reports on Scientology and Narconon
Scientology likes to pretend they don’t control and oversee Narconon drug rehab centers. Many insiders who have turned whistle blower say this is another lie coming out of the mouths of Scientologists.

McALESTER — Narconon Arrowhead’s CEO says he doesn’t understand why legislators are giving “so much attention” to a bill that gives the state oversight of his facility and others like it.
Narconon Arrowhead CEO Gary Smith said Wednesday his organization has no problems with Senate Bill 295.
“However we do not understand the amount of legislative attention that has been spent on (the bill) when you consider the number of critical issues facing Oklahomans that require legislative solutions,” he said in a statement.
Gary Smith is in glee if he cannot understand what is going on here.
Four individuals have died as inpatients at his facility. But after all, only their bodies died – those thetans didn’t die, right Gary?
They were just wogs, right Gary?
That’s what Scientology taught you, right Gary?
Hey Gary, remember Stacy Dawn Murphy?
Narconon IS a front group for Scientology recruiting and fundraising.

We just spoke with Robert Murphy, whose daughter Stacy died last July at Scientology’s flagship drug rehab center in Oklahoma, known as Narconon Arrowhead. Murphy had just come out of a legislative meeting in Oklahoma City to tell us that the House’s Public Health Committee had passed an amended Senate Bill which should put the Narconon center in some jeopardy.
“It’s a good day,” Murphy told us.
Indeed this is good news. The great State of Oklahoma is not going to allow this cult front group to continue to fleece individuals and families during a time of crisis.

As smoking guns go, this one is high caliber and billowing.
Scientology’s drug rehab program, Narconon, is in serious trouble because of a series of patient deaths, government investigations, and civil lawsuits. And as we’ve pointed out numerous times, former Narconon employees and leaked documents have revealed that nearly every step of Narconon’s business model involves some sort of deception.
Now, another stunning disclosure. Former Narconon employee Eric Tenorio has turned over to the Underground Bunker a remarkable e-mail written by a Narconon International legal affairs officer who admits that “we do not have scientific evidence of” the 70 percent and higher rates of success that the rehab programs advertise.
