Who Is Per Wickstrom – Serenity Drug Rehab

Per Wickstrom has a long rap sheet of lawsuits, and staff with criminal records. Although Wickstrom confirms he’s a Scientologist, many of his new websites have no mention of Scientology or Narconon. Scientology’s Narconon and Per Wickstrom, appear to have the worst drug rehab record in recent history, as a whole, for fraud, coercion, illegal confinement, human rights abuses, unqualified staff, deaths inside Narconon – and the list goes on.

WireService.ca Media Release (09/08/2014) details Per Wickstrom’s “lineups of mug shots and threats” –  Per Wickstrom is named in a stunning NAFC trademark violation lawsuit along with Scientology leader, David Miscavige, and 80 other defendants. The lawsuit alleges the centers faked certifications of some of its counselors.

ghost2WHO IS DR. TED ZUNINI? Amber Howe, Chief Operations Officer at Per Wickstrom’s Marne, Michigan Serenity Recovery Says Ted Zunini Is Serenity’s “Consulting Psychiatrist”… But He May Really Be A Ghost!

“Where in the world is Dr. Ted Zunini, described by a Per Wickstrom employee during a March 4, 2015 meeting of Lakeshore Regional Partners’ Substance Abuse Oversight Policy Board as the “consulting psychiatrist” for Wickstrom’s Marne, Michigan’s Serenity Point Rehab center?

After an exhaustive search, Miss Fortune has not been able to locate the elusive shrink and needs your help.”

“I zeroed in on those two doctors too when I first read the minutes of that meeting. Found Dr. Simon in Ludington but could find absolutely nothing on Zunini. I tried variations of the spelling and still came up with nothing.”

“Did a LARA “Verify a license” check on the last name “Zunini” for any profession, any type of license, and got a “No resuls found” response.

So either the last name is spelled wrong, it’s an out of state doctor, or it’s a name pulled out of a hat to be able to say there was a “consulting psychiatrist” on staff.

The LARA folks should be notified, and they should demand an explanation of who this person is. If he actually exists.”

WHO IS DR. TED ZUNINI? Let’s find out, Anons! Night Owl, Today at 3:01 PM

From the minutes of the Lakeshore Regional Partners meeting in Muskegon, Michigan in March 2015:

7) License Applications – Mark Witte
a) Update on District 10 Health Department application
Mark received the formal application and the provider received the license.
b) Application from Serenity Recovery

The board members discuss sending an approval letter to LARA with no comment or not sending in a letter at all. The board members decide to make a motion with a roll call vote.
MOTION – To send a letter to LARA in support of licensure for Serenity Recovery, Inc, but without comment.

Checked here: https://w2.lara.state.mi.us/VAL/License/Search
and while Kerry Mark Simon is licensed in the state of Michigan, no Ted or Theodore Zunini is licensed.

COMPLAINTS:

HORRIBLE communication with family…never return calls! Never notified of a leaving situation. Only seen a counselor once in over 3 weeks. Very under staffed…can not handle the amount of clients and families in need. Trusted them to help, and only made things worse. Very un-professional staff. Laid back security….WOULD NOT RECCOMMEND! There are other places that you will get the help you are promised.
.

09/21/2015Horribly understaffed from kitchen staff to security to classroom facilitators! Inconsistent treatment of clients by the Ethic’s Dept and administration. Program lengths are determined by insurance NOT by the client’s needs. Counseling is limited to 30 minutes per week with little or no family counseling. The majority population is extremely young and juvenile who treat the program more as a summer camp than a safe place to concentrate on recovery. High emphasis on Scientology curriculum. Be forewarned!!

Kind of amazing but the one negative view of this Scienctology based treatment center has been removed from this website,how ironic is that??
