According to an AJC report, the treatment facility will avoid potential criminal charges but the investigation against those running the business continues.
The charges stem from allegations that Narconon billed insurance companies for services it did not provide and operating as a residential unit when it was licensed as an outpatient clinic.
District Attorney Danny Porter said in the report that "Narconon as a corporate entity has been relived of criminal liability, but no individual is .... The key now is to identify those individuals, who were submitting the claims."
Narconon, with known ties to the Church of Scientology, will be able to reapply for a license in a year. State investigators said they had uncovered nearly $3 million in alleged insurance fraud by the company.
Editor's note: Narconon has over 120 rehabilitation and drug prevention centers world wide, its headquarters are located in Hollywood, California. According to the company's website, Narconon is supported by the Church of Scientology. More information is available on the company's website.
