Mowery v. Narconon: Complaint

Tony Ortega: Another Ryan Hamilton lawsuit against Narconon

In this case, Kenneth Mowery was convinced to send his son Jered to Narconon Redwood Cliffs in Watsonville, California, paying $35,500 plus another $3,000 for a “medical detox.”
Despite Narconon’s representations that Jered would receive extensive counseling, at no point did Narconon staff ever speak to Jered about the specifics of his life or his drug abuse and its causes. In fact, no one at Narconon ever spoke to Jered about his substance abuse at all. Jered received no education about substance abuse, its causes and effects, or methods to deal with his addiction. Instead, Jered received instruction only in Scientology. Jered became extremely scared by the “treatment” he was receiving and the fact that there appeared to be no qualified personnel at Narconon. To escape from Narconon, Jered pretended to have a family emergency.
