"If they don't shut it down, in my opinion, I think they're putting their political careers on the line, because if another person dies, you're not just going to have 100 people come from other countries, but from around the world," said Edgar.
Love and Henderson believe if Narconon here in Oklahoma is shut down, facilities across the United States will follow. The protest is Saturday at 1 p.m. in Canadien.
Former Narconon Employee from Canada Wants Oklahoma Facility Shut Down
A former Narconon employee from Canada is in Oklahoma to try and get legislators and public officials to shut down the drug rehab facility in the town of Canadian, Oklahoma. The push to shut down Narconon Arrowhead comes after there were three deaths at drug rehab facility within a nine month period.
Fox 25 first told you about deaths at Narconon Arrowhead back in May. Since then several agencies have launched investigations into the facility, including the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and the Pittsburg County District Attorney's Office. The DA is looking into whether to file criminal charges against the center for the latest death that happened behind its walls.
David Love used to be a patient at Narconon Three Rivers in Quebec. He later went on to work at the facility. After he stopped working for Narconon, David Love says he started working with public officials in Canada to try and close Narconon Three Rivers. The Canadian government shut down that facility in April.
Now Love is in Oklahoma to try and get Oklahoma officials to shut down Narconon Arrowhead.
