David Love, originally from British Columbia, was both a client and a staffer at the Narconon rehabilitation facility in Trois-Rivieres, half way between Montreal and Quebec City. He left in disgust taking with him masses of documentation on fraud and abuse in Narconon (NN) Trois-Rivieres (TR) facility in 2009.
He was befriended by members of Anonymous Quebec, whose right to free speech had been defended by Cardinal Marc Ouellet at his annual press lunch in 2009. Anonymous developed very good relations with the media and government offices.
Love has since then written several petitions and is preparing a lawsuit. As Love has being doing his work preparing his complaints, former Narconon staffers and clients not only from NN TR but US facilities have come forward to share with Love their stories of fraud, abuse, and dangerous detoxification protocols.
Among the most irate are the families of NN clients who have paid $25,000 - $30,000 for Narconon's program only to see their loved ones relapse.
We expect there to be much more reporting in the media over the next several months as Love files his petitions and prepares is lawsuit.
Among the ex-clients to come forth is Robert Vincent Piro, who has recounted his experience of NN TR is his When God Called On My Cellphone, now available at Amazon US and Amazon Canada. Piro writes his eye-opening story from his perspective as a grateful Catholic Christian in recovery.
Piro is the first former client to publish a book exposing Narconon, which contains much evidence that Narconon is nothing but a Church of Scientology operation despite Narconon's protestations that it has nothing to do with David Miscavige's violent and abusive organization.
