Matthys vs Narconon: Complaint

Tony Ortega: Ryan Hamilton adds Colorado in new lawsuits against Scientology’s rehab network

Add Colorado to the states where Las Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton has filed federal fraud lawsuits against Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon.

Two lawsuits were filed by Hamilton this week against Narconon Colorado, which operates a ‘Narconon Fresh Start’ facility in Fort Collins it calls A Life Worth Saving (pictured).

We count these as the sixth and seventh federal lawsuits that Hamilton has filed this year, and they are very much like the detailed legal complaints that have been filed against rehab centers in California and Nevada.
The other lawsuit Hamilton filed this week against A Life Worth Saving involves activity that is surprisingly recent.

Texas resident Charles Matthys went looking for a rehab program for his son, Tyler, just this past February.

After talking to Narconon representatives in Colorado, Charles paid its $31,000 fee, with help from Tyler’s grandmother, Linda Phillips, who took out a bank loan.

The same alleged misrepresentations were made to the Matthys family, and “Tyler left Fresh Start on or about April 2, 2014, because he was not receiving substance abuse counseling and he did not feel safe.”

That’s just a month ago. Narconon may soon get the feeling that Ryan Hamilton is watching them like a hawk.
We’re going to need a score sheet to keep track of all the lawsuits Hamilton has filed against Scientology’s drug rehab racket. Here are links to the previous lawsuits…
