“The medical care and supervision offered at Narconon Arrowhead is in compliance with all state requirements that govern the level of care Narconon Arrowhead has been authorized by the state to offer. Since Narconon is not a hospital or acute care facility if that level of care becomes necessary for one of our clients an appropriate referral made. When a program participant requires medication for a medical condition that complies with Narconon’s enrollment criteria they are always included as part of the individuals treatment plan.”
Also in an emailed statement from Smith he addressed the lawsuits filed against Narconon Arrowhead he wrote, “In this great nation of ours people bringing law suits seeking money damages are free to make whatever allegations they wish and those are very often not true. In fact more times than not when relevant records and documentation are reviewed in a court of law the actual facts of the case will trump the allegations that are being made. Narconon fully intends to aggressively defend these claims in the courts and let the facts speak for themselves. We cannot be more specific at this time because we believe the appropriate place to address these types of allegations are in a court of law and not the media.”
A decision on whether or not criminal charges will be filed in the deaths at Narconon Arrowhead could be expected this week, according to District 18 District Attorney Farley Ward.
