Complaint / review text:
This business is a front for the church of scientology!!! Please do not let what happened to our family happen to your's! This facility will never disclose that it is part of the church of Scientology. All of their "training materials" are from L Ron Hubbard. They try to isolate your family member and indoctrinate them at their weakest point. They use brainwashing techniques such as repeating phrases back to them for an hour at a time. This is not a drug or alcohol rehabilitation facility! If you mention God in this facility you are immediately separated from the others and sent for 2 hours of manual labor. They call the patients at the facility "students" and begin the Scientology teachings after the first 10 days. There is no one - on-one counseling as they will promise you beforehand.in fact, there are no licensed counselors at this facility. The people working there are all ex-addicts that have converted to Scientology. They will offer to buy your family member a house if they agree to stay on and work at the facility as a counselor after converting to Scientology! These people are brainwashing and building a community of Scientologists in Watsonville. DO NOT BELIEVE ANYTHING THEY TELL YOU!!! They will have you pay upfront and tell you that insurance will cover 40-80% of your loved ones treatment. THIS IS A LIE!!! Insurance companies will not cover a dollar of this because they are aware that all of the money is funneled to the church of Scientology! Please do not let any of your loved ones be fooled by this "treatment center". It is a scam and extremely dangerous. Also, when we told them we were aware of the Scientology practices and were coming to pick up our loved one, they left him at a gas station a half hour away from the facility... After he had to spend the day quarantined. There are people being held there against their will. Keep your loved ones safe and do not use vista bay treatment center!!!
