Complaint / review text:
Sun Coast Rehab failed to provide a safe, honest, and clinical drug rehabilitation for my sister. Families affected by drug addiction need honesty to help alleviate the pull of the addiction. Honesty was never apparent in my experience with Sun Coast Rehab.
The facility claimed not to have any "connection" with the church of scientology. The staff sold the notion of a holistic rehab practice prior to admission and down played the Narconon classes and program of Scientology. However, we learned later that the program is formed completely from the pseudo science of Scientology.
The facility failed to provide substantive clinical metrics. At no time during my sister's stay with the Narconon facility Sun Coast Rehab, did she see a doctor, clinician or have any lab reports performed. The staff postponed any such diagnostics until my sister departed the facility.
My sister repeated detoxification steps for non-compliance with the program and for asking to leave the facility. A staff person threw the "Ethics" book at her and shut her in a room after the staff learned she spoke about leaving the facility with her family.
The "Ethics" book is a series of writings from LRH that is used to break contact with the family and past associations of the person in rehab. This is called disassociation.
I called the facility to ask about these issues. I was told that no such incidence was reported. No staff would ever throw a book at another person. I was also told that the "Ethics" book is to help form stronger relationships with friends and family.
The Sun Coast Rehab Center like all Narconon centers appear to be what they claim they are not... A front for the church of scientology. Rehab cost $30,000.00 and is not refundable paid up front.
