Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Went manic, and psychotic when taken totally off klonopin. Refused a call to my daughter or attorney. No one qualified to deal with my problem. They shipped me to Alternative to Med Center in Sedona,Arizona after two weeks of suffering; who is affiliated with them. They were also irresponsible to handle my problem. According to Dr. Heather Ashton of Great Btirian it takes 6 months to 3 years to TAPER off benzodiazapines. Worst method; stop " cold turkey " as they did to me, second worst a detox clinic, with massive doses of niacin and vitamins; and " Rocky " told my daughters I would not suffer let alone go manic. Was only able to see the Dr. Wooten once a week if that. Blood Pressure went to over 200 to 110 diastolic. He stated this is normal in withdrawal. He gave me no help; my hands were shaking, and couldn't feed myself. Three people died at this facility in 2011. I came very close till ATMC re-instated a half dose pf klonopin. Currently working with a Psychiatrist to get me balanced, and functional. I havn't worked for nine months and spent roughly $60,000. I was non functional for 7 months after entering Narcanon Arrowhead."

Additional Communication Between Claimant and Narconon Arrowhead Hide
  • Feb 05, 2013, Narconon Arrowhead (responding party) added:

  • Be advised that state and federal privacy laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), prohibit Narconon of Oklahoma, Inc. ("Narconon") from responding to any inquiry or request for information concerning any person who has applied for, participated in, or received counseling or any services provided by Narconon in its substance abuse and alcohol abuse treatment program. Any unauthorized public disclosure, dissemination or posting of such information may subject the person or entity making the disclosure, dissemination or posting to civil or criminal liability. PeopleClaim risks civil or criminal liability should it post information concerning an individual's drug or alcohol abuse treatment without first receiving a HIPAA compliant waiver or release from that individual. We understand that PeopleClaim may not ordinarily verify the "facts" stated in complaints it receives but in this instance, assuming the facts of this matter fall under the purview of applicable non-disclosure laws, PeopleClaim should consider the liability it may be exposing itself to before “publicly posting” anything.

  • Feb 21, 2013, Claiming party added:
  • I have not heard any responses from from anyone that is continuing with the mis-representation going on at both facilities. There is no medically trained staff; only ex- illicit drug users who get free room and board for their compensation. My addiction was to a prescription medication that was prescribed by a Psychiatrist for twenty years. I wanted to lower the dose because it was affecting my short term memory; my Medical Doctor states this was the wrong method to pursue. Narconnon and ATMC do NOT know how to handle prescription meds; especially benzodiazapines. They have to be taper over long periods of time; high doses of Niacin, and vitamins, saunas, etc; will not overcome a COMPROMISED central nervous system in your brain.
