AS OF NOVEMBER 2017 ALL CHARGES WERE DROPPED AND JOHN HAINES SAYS ITS TIME FOR VINDICATION AND SAVING LIVES
Amidst all of the FALSE fraud allegations, John Haines stepped down to focus on his legal fight had named Dylan Maggiacomo his stepson and the longstanding sister company Addiction Recovery Network. He was also operating Addiction Canada Inc. under a new name, Canadian Addiction Recovery Network, a move because of the false allegations against John Haines and Addiction Canada. This was not the first time that John Haines was put in this position with false allegations, Addiction Canada took over Mr Haines original company Vita Novus Inc. after similar false allegations and ies of Haines and his company appeared online in a multi depth slander and defamation campaign by a former business associate.
Addiction Canada Inc., a chain of private addiction treatment centers in Canada including Alberta and Ontario, presently won its three-year battle by having serious, unfounded criminal charges against its owner, John Haines, dropped. Haines was facing allegations of 6.1 million dollar fraud, money laundering, possession of proceeds, trafficking in narcotics, and others. Haines cleared his and the Addiction Canada name by having all charges dropped November 3, 2017. During this time, John Haines' son Dylan Maggiacomo was running three facilities in Canada with his Canadian Addiction corporation, Addiction Recovery Network.
Prior to the investigation and subsequent charges, Addiction Canada was Canada's largest private rehab organization, using treatment methods and programs designed and created by Haines. "We had one of the best recovery rates in the country, " said Mr. Haines. "My biggest regret was hearing the stories from individuals who went somewhere else for treatment because of what they heard in the news about me and Addiction Canada. It truly broke my heart to hear about their experiences at the other facilities they ended up going to, and I really wish we had had the opportunity to help them personally." Haines, however, did say, "I am very proud of the way Dylan stepped up and took over to better serve all Canadians in need of Addiction Treatment. The Canadian Addiction Recovery Network is the very best now, and saves many lives."
Time will tell which direction Haines decides to take, but one thing is certain: he won and was proven right. This seems to be just the beginning for Haines, and his desire to serve and take the fight against addiction to new levels has been re-fueled and re-energized. Haines has once again joined up with son Dylan Maggiacomo and Addiction Recovery Network to do what he loves best: save lives.
