Medical detox center loses certification Published: August 8, 2013

McALESTER -- Narconon Arrowhead's medical detox facility in McAlester is no longer state certified.

The McAlester News-Capital reports that the temporary certification issued to the site for medical detox has expired.

Meanwhile, the main non-medical drug rehab center in Canadian remains open.

Officials with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health Substance Abuse Services said the temporary permit for the detox center expired May 16.

They said Narconon Arrowhead failed to correct deficiencies found by the state during earlier inspections, the newspaper reported.

He said the facility at 1500 S. George Nigh Expressway has been open since 2011.

Narconon Arrowhead has two facilities; one is the medical-detox facility in McAlester and the other is a non-medical drug rehab in Canadian.

Both Narconon facilities are non-profit and use the teachings of Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. - See more at:
