Quebec's health agency has shut down Narconon in Trois-Rivieres. Earlier this month, a Toronto mom went public after her son was rejected by the drug rehab centre. The day after our story aired, the agency sent a letter to Narconon ordering it to remove the patients from the facility immediately, claiming its practices were a danger to the health and security of its patients.
Meanwhile the Toronto mom, Yvonne Keller, who lost $10,000 after her son was kicked out of the facility and sent back to Toronto on a bus alone, has received offers of help from two other drug programs.
"I just can't believe this. I extend the biggest warmest hug to you and the CBC right now. Truly, thank you."
