    agree but in the end do you really think any of us that were scammed will ever see a penny of our money back! I am doubtful. Each and every Client that has reported that they have suffered by paying such a high amount of money should be compensated for what we had to go through while in one of his Facilities where our health was not taken serious, or we came out on more medication then we went on! Were food the garbage food because there was no money to buy any! False lies that led us to believe we were really going to be helped for the amount we all spent the mind games we had to go through the rules changing everyday in compete staff it does not matter we all suffered and he should be made to pay up for the damage he did to each of any Clients that were at risk while under the care of his so called High Luxury recovery places. many have suffered including myself I witnessed so much that was just not right that it makes me ill to think of it. However most of us were weak at the time trying to get out life together no matter what entered one of his recovery Places for in the end it was all the same we were mislead borrowed money are in debt and some of us are scarred by the events that took place while a Client in his recovery centers. I personally feel that we need to be compensated for our suffering when we went in to get our life back at 57 I totally 100% believed I was going to be helped especially when you want something so bad as gaining a life back and you have to see what I saw hungry at times because you could not eat the food. Many Health hazards and your health was a joke to the so called Doctor he hired! Really all we all want is to see this John Haines pay for what he did! Play with our minds our well being our health and take advantage of us as human beings looking to try and get our life back and start to recover from whatever our addiction was? Ad addiction is an addiction and we wanted help that is all and we paid a high price to get what we thought was an honest man who suffered himself as he has said! in the end he played with us all staff and Clients! so sad! That is all I have to left to say! One Client who really wants to see justice for all of he scammed and maybe if we are blessed enough get out life back after Recovery at AC and be compensated for all out suffering!

    I am new to this site & I want you all to hear my story. My son (& our family) were in crisis mode! We were terrified that our son was not going to make it unless he got into a rehab centre immediatley (This was in December of 2015). We researched Addiction Canada & to us it sounded like an answer to our prayers. We couldnt have been more wrong. An interventionist (Connie Thompson) came to our home. I don't know why I didnt kick her out of our house? The vulgar things she was saying to our son, shaming him. I didnt know, I thought this was how these things worked. To add insult to injury, we paid this woman $2,500.00, non refundable. We finally talked him into going and drove him to Utopia in Barrie about a week later. The cost for a 60 day stay was $20,000.00. We were assured that our son would see a pyscotherapist 3 times a week, this never happened! At our visitation after the first week we could see how poorly run the facility was. Every single day I would get a call reporting of my son's bad behavoiur (swearing, etc). At each "infraction" priviledges were taken away (mostly no phone calls to his son). We got a phone call after about a week and 1/2 that our son had got into an altercation with another patient and that he was being moved to their site at Pickeral Lake. At this time, I was going through radiation treatment for cancer. Connie Thompson called me while I was at the hospital to tell us our son was being moved and I said give me the number for Utopia, I want to speak to my son. She was screaming at me, "NO, I won't give it to you, you are only enabling him!" She finally gave me the number. My husband & I did not know what to do. We agreed with them to move him. We had very limited contact with him. His phone calls were all monitered and we thought let the "experts" do their job to get our son healthy. As usual, every other day I would get a phone call reporting of our son's bad behaviour. He had been at Addiction Canada for 20 days. On the Saturday we were supposed to be visiting as a family to share "a circle of support" with our son. On the Friday night I got a phone call from a councilor "Steve" from Pickerall Lake. He made small talk with me for about 2o minutes, and said he would see me the next day at visitation. I said "oh I am so glad, I thought you were calling with bad news", he then said, I am afraid it is bad news, Your son is being kicked out of the program, he tested positive for drugs, they had tested him that day. Needless to say we "lost it" "What are you talking about? you are supposed to be a secure facility. How did he get drugs?" He proceeded to tell me that he probably swallowed them and then "pooped them out" his words. He also told me our son tested positive 2 previous times (3 total). I asked them how they found it necessary to call me every day to report of my son swearing, but did not find it important enough to call about 3 positive drug tests?? Let me just add that the contract we signed stated that we would get money refunded to us (pro-rated) if our son left the program on his own but, if he got kicked out for testing positive for drugs, absolutely NO REFUND would be given. We went the next morning to Pickeral Lake to pick him up. Security was waiting for us and would not allow us in the building. His bags were outside. We knocked on the door, Penny Burnside opened it a crack but would not let us in. We said we demand a new test right now. Our son was also demanding a test right then. Penny was yelling out the door, "there will be no pee tests!" We were escorted off the property. We IMMEDIATLEY drove to the Huntsville hospital where our son was administered complete blood & urine drug tests. EVERY SINGLE TEST CAME BACK NEGATIVE! We have the results from Addiction Canada from the day before that showed at least 5 drugs that they said he tested positive for (cocaine, barbiturate, benzodiazepine, methadone & maijuana). These drugs will show positive in a blood or urine test for weeks. We then drove straight to the OPP in Huntsville and filed a report. My son was so proud of himself that he had been clean for 3 weeks. He was totally shamed and belittled at Addiction Canada. The "treatment" he recieved there hurt far more than helped him. We visited a lawyer a few days later, and she said we had a strong case to sue to get our money back.

    Where does our story go from here......??? Our son passed away on March 17th, 2016 from an overdose. At our (and his) most vulnerable time, we cried out for help. We thought we were doing the right things, seeking help for our son. Addiction Canada directly, negatively affected my son's rehabilitation with the worst possible outcome any family can bear. They kicked him out after 21 days because he was "hard to handle". They falsified drug tests because a positive test was grounds to kick him out & keep our money. Our family is heartbroken, and our son paid the ultimate price. I will stand beside anyone here and support anyone in any action that will bring Addiction Canada & John Haines to justice for the treatment of our son and everyone else that they have hurt.

    Thank you for listening

    Welcome. SO sorry for your loss. I can't imagine the heat break.
    ALL Scientology's treatment centers should have been shut down YEARS ago.
    They should have never been allowed to open in the first place with their dangerous unproven quack treatments. If you can even call it a" treatment".
    There have MANY deaths in the Arrowhead Narconon location in the US.

    Glad you are joining the fight.
    Be safe and be careful for people who contact you asking for any information.
    Hiring a lawyer was as step in the right direction. Most US cases have been settled out of court. Which is VERY telling.
    Please consider contacting authorities with your story. It can be anonymous.
    Of course it will not bring your son back, but it will greatly help others to not have to endure the pain you are feeling and will help to close their centers.
    My sincere condolences and thank you for your bravery and sharing your story.
  7. I am sorry to hear about your story. Connie Thompson and John Haines are CROOKS. You need to make sure You contact Everyone You Can,..., the Media Contact information is on this site. Contact CTV W5 - CVC Marketplace, All the Newspapers you can!!

    John Haines Addiction Canada was ISSUED A INJUNCTION BY THE ONTARIO SUPERIOR COURT - NOT TO PROVIDE ANY DETOX, OR REHAB RELATED SERVICES IN UTOPIA.

    Yes, we have been in contact with Bev Mackay right from the beginning (when our son was still alive). We are still in contact with her now. I want to get Jason's story out! I don't want those scam artists posing as doctores, councellors, etc to hurt one more vulnerable person or their family member who is crying out for help in a time of crisis. they need to be held accountable. I will contact CTV W5 & CVC Marketplace. thank you

    Our son was moved to Pickeral Lake January 20, 2016. The day before (while he was still at Utopia) 5 patients got kicked out, and that afternoon 5 new people moved in. They needed the beds. They needed the turnover (new $$$)
  12. justice4u Member


    I am so scared that there are people working for John Haines (mostly Connie Thompson, Penny Burnside, councillor Steve) that are masquarading as concerned parents, past clients etc. posting on here, just to find out information. That is something totally dirty & underhanded consistent with their behaviour.
  13. justice4u Member

    I hope Connie Thompson gets arrested immediately! When she came to our home, she did nothing but insult my son. We (as a family) had no clue how interventions worked. She lost complete control of the situation and just ridiculed and shamed our son. She thought this was the way to get him to go to Utopia. Her commission was on the line. Our son told us of a story of a client he met in Utopia. Connie was driving this client to be admitted. The boys father was sitting in the front seat with Connie and the boy was in the back seat. Connie allowed him to smoke crack while she drove for as she put it, "his last horrah". Tells you a lot about her integrity.

    It wouldn't be surprising. They seem to use the same book of dirty tricks as Narconon.

    However, with court cases and law enforcement bearing down on them, I'd think they'd try to be a little careful.

    In the meanwhile, be careful about who you share your personal info with.
  15. Scammed 57 Member

    OMG. I am so sorry for your lost, I am sure you have read my story on here. I am afraid right now that I am going to take my life at 57. I saw more than you will ever know being in Foot Hills for 60 days, yes they took or aided in your son`s suicide, I as well saw someone who was drinking in there and this person was kicked out let me say it would have been so easy to bring and thing in the house when you left on Sunday`s with family that was allowed. Yes you went to pee test upon return but I should not say this but I have to I did not know that if you take the pee test it does not show alcohol you must do a spit test that is what I was told, I left one Sunday with my Husband came back and whey they as asked me for a spit test I asked WHY . reply was the pee test does show if you have been drinking. This was the first time I was asked! All the other times I never had to and they said that was suppose to be done with everyone that left the property. This poor girl maybe she was not back packs , purses, baby diaper bags. The sad thing is everything she told me this girl was true but they had already gotten to me when I was weak coming from detox coming of of benzo`s mental illness on top of it. They played with my head. Said she got me in her black web that she was playing with me. I was so confused I did not know who to believe it was horrible, I had to be good at all times take whatever because I an on Great West Life Long Term Disability and we thought they would help us out with what we paid if I did good and finished the program. Every time I told my husband what was going on in there and how sick I was or there was hardly any food or I would get chest pains and tell they so called Doctor he said it was in my head or withdrawals and he could do nothing for me! I tried suicide in there because he tapered me to fast off benzo`s and said he forgot I suffered from mental illness and was on medication they left me in a the bedroom alone with the object. All I can say Benzo`s are bad and tricky you become the drug it takes over and you must know what you are doing when taking someone of these horrible meds. They did not understand them or mental illness at all. I am in bad shape currently my Doctor is worried and new Psychotherapists is concerned and believes they traumatized me when I tell her about my therapy there! No 3 sessions at all no good food at all yes we believed it would be good at $30,000.00 now I may lose my job Great West Life will only give me after tomorrow which is my 3 visit to her 3 1/2 more I have to pay $90.00 for the rest of the seven sessions to get a full hour they refuse to pay. I have no money to get good help, yes go to the public mental health and get it free OMG do you know the wait list I am so messed up my Family is falling apart they can not see me much longer like this, I am numb I want to self medicate so I do not feel again but this time it is worse cause of what they did to me all the lies John told my husband all my underlying health issues he told us I would be in good hands and taken care off good healthy food. He calls us liars he lied to us and we trusted him so are we stupid I do not think I am but I am so hurt I am no better and when I was there they told me your in a safe place here out there it will be different they will not understated you your friends your family no one. I believed it so much I was scared to leave OMG I feel like I was in a cult my new psychotherapists said I need time to heal from this place I was damaged more. I am scared to death I do not want to die but right now I feel like I was so stupid and my health and mental illness on top of trying to get off benzo`s with my Doctor`s help Great West Life just want me off the books they never helped me through any of this they are just as bad what they did to me and still do to me. I am at the end I have no where to turn I am so tired so tired Going to sleep and no pain just in my sleep I will not know maybe from above I can be better to my family and my granddaughters I am nothing right now Addictions Canada for me I think was my last ray of hope and they took that away and he calls us liars, I think he is a very sad sick man to do this to your son to me and to so may others than have the nerve to want to bring me to Utopia to get me well, I think he wants to finish what he started 60 days was not enough time. I would rather die myself than ever allow anyone of his places to do it for me! I am so sorry for your lost but this has scared me even more because I know you are telling the truth and you had cancer OMG that is horrible and we all all out money hopeless because his places are private and no one will touch him and make him pay us back so we can get real help and save a life I would love to go to a real recovery place but we are broke. Your son is dead no amount of money can ever bring him back I am so sorry but for me it would be nice before I get worse it has only been two months since I left the cult and I am trying to piece stuff together what happened but I was coming off benzo`s I was not in the best of mind and body I went in in bad shape after 3 months of staying in bed and wanting to die so bad. It is coming back again i just want help my family is tired they have been suffering with me for 3 1/2 years of being on so many meds from doctors so may benzos given to me I am just tired now I have been through alot over these 3 1/2 years all political with Great West Life my illness and the anxiety the pain of mental illness being thrown in a detox from Great West life and said yes they could take me off of 7 ativan a day to nothing I thought that wa pain and a nightmare but little did I know there was more to come Addictions Canada I am not asking for pity I allowed my doctor Great West Life to treat me this way because I did not have the courage or the strength to take them on but Renfrew Detox In Calgary almost killed me you cannot take a person off of 7 ativan in one week and expect them to go to Aventa a public place and do a boot camp for 6 weeks with the mind meaning therapy but they did not care they cut off my claim til I had a heart attack they gave it back and continued to give me bad therapy so when we took it into our own hands though a private place may help save me because I wanted my life back and off the benzos that had and still do have a hold on me we trusted John I guess maybe they are all the same Insurance companies private recovery centers we are a number so lets get her off the books and then lets steal her money that is how I feel like a fool sorry this is long but I have no one to talk to my Family is tired Great West Life will not listen my Case Manger that takes care of my Claim at Alberta Health Services will not I went back to work last September 2015 to January 2016 was harnessed bullied humiliated by my Manger for being mentally ill and suffering from anxiety and on medication. Went off again because I could no longer go in and be treated like that so that is when it all went down hill for me for 3 months bad bad drinking and taking benzos cause I wanted out of life and then wanted to live when my granddaughters told me and my daughter that they needed me to fight and be here for them please Mom do not die we need you you know the end Addictions Canada, THE END!
  16. Hey John,

    You must be Proud, there Mr. Rehab. All that Money, You've Scammed!

    ((( You are in Our Prayers, Scammed57))))

    Please I hope everyone out there that has been taken in by this man tell your story! Please I am so hurt and as hard as I try I cannot let it go! I am numb I really am I am back to lying in my bed crying and I do not know what is real any longer. All I know is one thing for sure. I want to live so much, but everyday gets harder.

    I have no idea what to say or what to do! I so wanted to get help at AC! I was taken in hurt, and this man calls us liars. I am the one so empty inside may lose my job I want to self medicate again so bad because I cannot take this pain inside and I have no where to go for help $30,000.00 and damaged all I wanted was to to believe John Haines that my health. coming of benzos I would be helped!

    I still am losing weight cannot eat, my anxiety is bad I shake I was so taken in. I am sick I want help but have no money left! I have no idea where or what is next, just watched Intervention Canada I felt like I could be on there. One difference is they send these addicts to a real Private Recovery Center with real life people who know what they are doing how broken they are, how delicate they are how sick they are and they need help because they do not know how to do it alone anymore.

    I am there but I so want to live to see my Granddaughters grow up I am 57 I was in a bad way addicted to benzos and self medicating and my husband knew if he did not do something fast, because we could not wait for a public place the wait is too long. So because he thought I would die in this room he talked to John Haines, went and took out $30,000.00 line of credit and sent me there. I wanted to get well so bad but here I am sitting here posting this crying in the same pj`s for 2 days scared

    I am not mad at him he is a sick man to do this lie to us damage us play with a human being and they say we lie. This is all I can write and say I am done I have said my peace now I have to try and pray that I will not get so bad like before and do something stupid but every day gets harder where to I go now broke trying to make it i want to live but i cannot sfford a real honest addcition place. I am broke and broken.

    Tuesday, Aug 30, 2016
    By: Kristen Oelschlagel

    Addiction Canada opend up their new facility in Glendon just over a year ago.

    Former staff owed thousands of dollars are speaking up about the Addiction Canada facility in Glendon, and the number of Alberta Labour files against the company keeps growing. Just over a year since the company opened in Glendon, local contractors and former employees are finding themselves at a loss as they try to chase down the money they’re owed.

    One of those former staff members is Annette (who wishes to only be identified by her first name), a healthcare aid who was employed by Addiction Canada in Glendon from Aug. 17 to Nov. 30, 2015. According to Annette, she is still owed two pay cheques totalling around $4,000. “I got laid off on Nov. 30 at the end of a 12-hour shift, effective immediately.

    The letter said due to restructuring. I’m a healthcare aid, so I told them (when I got hired) it was out of my scope to do medication administration, but they kept saying they’re a private clinic so they can do whatever they want as long as they train you.”
    After being laid off, she phoned the company numerous times to collect two overdue pay cheques and her final pay.

    “Finally, on Jan. 27 (2016), I phoned and said ‘I’m filing a grievance tomorrow through labour standards.’ On Jan. 28, they phoned me back and said I have one of your cheques signed.”
    Still short $4,000, Annette currently has a judgement against Addiction Canada through Alberta Labour, and she’s not alone. According to a spokesperson for Alberta Labour, since June 2015 they’ve received 41 complaints against Addiction Canada. Of those, 19 are in collections – meaning the employer still owes money and was found to be in the wrong. Another 10 are still under investigation, five have yet to start investigation, and just seven of the 41 complaints have been concluded.

    A privately-owned addiction treatment facility, Addiction Canada was started by John Haines. The Glendon facility is one of five across the country, with three being in Ontario and two in Alberta. Haines overhauled the hospital in Glendon to open a treatment centre locally in May 2015, with a capacity for 32 clients.

    Another former employee of the Glendon Addiction Canada facility, found themselves essentially out on the streets after coming out from Ontario to take the job and is now out close to $6,000. Speaking to the Nouvelle earlier this month, the former employee (who asked to remain anonymous) was with the company for almost a year when health issues caused them to leave.

    “I ended up taking a sick leave in June. They owe me almost $6,000 and I had John Haines send me a text message and ask me to come back, they said they were going to pay me in full. Then the offer was ‘I’ll give you half now and half when you come in to sign the contract’. They gave me $1,000 instead and said they’d rather pay new employees then bother paying the past employees first. I decided not to go back and just take my $1,000 and run.”

    Being from Ontario, during their time working for Addiction Canada in Glendon the former employee was living in staff housing, which they were told would be paid for through the company. In addition to having their electricity cut off, they were given an eviction notice for non-payment.

    “It’s been a rough couple of months,” expressed the former employee, adding that they are still fighting to get the money they’re owed. “My blood pressure has been sky high and it’s just been an emotional roller coaster.”

    Local contractors fighting for payment
    Bonnyville businesses who had been contracted to complete work at the Glendon Addiction Canada facility are also in a battle to get the company to pay the bills. “They gave us the runaround basically. ‘We’ll pay you this’ or ‘we’ll pay you that’, ‘we need more time’, or they’ll send you postdated cheques.

    I got half because I went through debt collection agencies so they finally sent postdated cheques, but after two went through I was informed the bank account was closed,” said Chris Rondeau, co-owner of Bonnyville Water Conditioning.

    Rondeau’s company first did work for Addiction Canada in April 2015, with a job through Horizon Mechanical installing all of the facility’s commercial water softeners, as well as a separate contract on their own, putting in a reverse osmosis system.

    Of the $6,800 it cost for the reverse osmosis system, currently Addiction Canada still owes $3,800 to Bonnyville Water Conditioning according to Rondeau.
    “I’ve tried twice now (to get the money); this guy is so slippery. I have equipment out there, and it needs servicing for the warranty, so I make them come in and pay up front because obviously I can’t let them charge anything anymore.”

    However, Rondeau was quick to note that, on the treatment side of things, patients have expressed to him that it is a good facility. When it comes to the business aspect and finances, that’s another story. Horizon Mechanical was contracted by Addiction Canada to work on the Glendon facility from February to May 2015, prior to its opening.

    While there, owner Kevin Karle said they upgraded the majority of the heating and cooling systems, as well as adding plumbing fixtures.
    According to Karle, Addiction Canada still owes them over $100,000. Like Rondeau, the cheques came but the money didn’t.

    “He sent me four postdated cheques and as the dates came he kept telling me ‘not yet, not yet’. Finally, enough being enough, I tried to cash them and he had stopped payment of all four cheques.”
    While taken aback that it wasn’t a Government of Canada facility despite its name, Karle said there weren’t any indications that things would go south during his initial meetings with Haines.
    “This is business No. 5 (for Addiction Canada). It seemed like he had his ducks in a row and knew what he was doing. He said the right things and was cautious, to a point, about how we were spending money.” Karle is still pursuing legal action against Addiction Canada.

    Both former staff members expressed that they’re also still fighting to get the money they’re owed, along with several of their colleagues. According to the former employee, some of them have also filed a complaint with the Bonnyville RCMP Detachment. However, the RCMP were unable to comment on the matter at this time.

    Addiction Canada did not return the Nouvelle’s request for an interview.

    BUT, they kept saying they’re a private clinic so they can do whatever they want as long as they train you."




    I HOPE FOR YOUR SAKE, YOU CALLED THE POLICE. BY GIVING THE " DRUGS" TO THE CLIENTS...,WHAT YOU WERE DOING, IS CALLED TRAFFICKING IN DRUGS, BY THE POLICE.

    Anyone who has worked at Addiction Canada and was ASKED TO Administer Drugs, Give Drugs to "Clients" without Being LICENSED, WITHOUT HAVING THE PROPER CREDENTIALS, IS TRAFFICKING IN DRUGS ACCORDING TO CANADIAN LAW, ACCORDING TO THE POLICE, WHICH IS CRIMINAL OFFENCE.

    Yes, by doing what YOU DID, YOU COMMITTED A CRIME. CALL THE POLICE TODAY, TELL THEM YOUR STORY, BECAUSE, IF NOT, YOU CAN BET, THEY WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH ALL OF YOU WHO ' Administer Drugs ON behalf of John Haines, Addiction Canada"

    Yes and his so called Doctor in Foot Hills it clearly states on his Face Book page he started Secondary School in Ontario Aug-11 then He started the University of Windsor in Aug-11 now if I am correct he was administering and prescribing sleep meds to us and pushing them on us when I was there in May-16, this is not even 4 years after he started these schools that only gave him if enough time to be an RN and we were told he was a licensed Medical Doctor!! Now in my case on behalf of our nursing staff whatever they were health care aids they took his instructions and they saved our lives he may have killed us without their help!!
  22. Make sure you call the police and tell them. Remember, the fake doctor scam in ontario. As you know, they are in court again, sept/12.

    What are you peed off about!

    I did last evening the RCMP in Sundre contacted me and took my story and said the calls are flooding in from past Clients in Alberta here but they did say this go go 3 ways 1) they get the Crown to lay charges ASAP (criminal) 2) they say they need more evidence 3) they say no this is not enough to lay criminal charges. OMG my story alone could and should be criminal I am happy I made out alive but it is not over yet I am still suffering from damages mentally and physically if that is not criminal in Alberta Law Courts then there si something real corrupt going on!! All they do is look at what he did he did in Ontario! Is that not enough to believe us here this man is walking around with a loaded gun! Basically and is really if he has not already kill someone and now he is trying real hard to cover up his mistakes here in Alberta. Lying off staff that he hired even when they said they were health care aids and were told do not worry you will get training to administer drugs we are private we can do whatever we want! If Alberta allows this to go with out criminal charges the I have nothing to say except lets go open a center hire anyone cause we are private steal big money from people and we probably will get away with it!! Come on this is Canada not the USA or some third world country I thought the Government cared about what kind of medical care we receive ! private or not are there not laws here about giving Clients medication or caring for Clients that are really in bad shape and detoxing off some pretty bad stuff! They should know what they are doing and have a licence here in Canada or in Alberta, or am I wrong. Tell me am I!
  25. Yes, the Calls are FLOODING IN, and when the RCMP finish Speaking with Everyone, When All is Said is Done, John Haines will BE CHARGED in Alberta, just like he is FACING CHARGES IN ONTARIO NOW!

    I wonder if he is reading this! He is not well in denial and he will continue to laugh but hopefully all of here in Alberta can band together t get a class action lawsuit for out injuries

    Sorry for all this words not being proper in grammar but I am having a hard time these days concentrating and my typing is not the greatest!

    They did not care about anyone. No clients or staff. I realized that over time. I tried my hardest to make changes that desperately needed to be made and I was always lied to myself or just pushed away whenever I brought things up to management. And don't get me started on management there.

    What a joke. I started to get many complaints from clients and families over time. I could not believe some of the things that happened inside Glendon facility and the lack of structure and professionalism.

    John Haines and "his buddies" cared about was making money. They did not care about the harm they were actually causing individuals and their families instead of proper help and treatment that they all deserved! What they did is absolutely disgusting.

    My resignation letter and what I had to take to the board last year was six pages long. No response from John Haines after I sent it in and I am still owed over $3000 from that scum bag too. The hardest thing for me was having to walk out on clients and knowing that they were not all getting proper treatment and helped they all deserved.

    But I am ethical and knew that I had to resign when it was putting my own health in jeopardy. I got very ill from the added stress that place gave me. The work environment was so toxic, far from the way a professional facility should be.

    I believe that all facilities need to be regulated and I hope those who were negatively impacted, get help and are ok. My thoughts are with all of those who are suffering with addictions. If anyone would like to contact me, or have any questions, please feel free.
  29. Remember, WHO you are dealing with. Canadian's,The World, is Learning More and More, about John Haines, Addiction Canada Scams

    Here He is ( JOHN HAINES ) PRETENDING to be a RETIRED PSYCHIATRIC NURSE ( I am a retired psychiatric nurse)

    "So bottom line is, from what I understand, all 9 pages of what you see here will soon be removed by a court order already in process. Cowards who slander anyone (for that matter) never acknowledge their identity so obviously they are in denial themselves, hiding behind their computers. Oh and you know with certainty that John is an unethical lying criminal?

    Yes John, The Police, think, that you are a LYING UNETHICAL CRIMINAL!!!

    That's why they ARRESTED YOU for 6.1 MILLION DOLLAR FRAUD. iF YOU ARE CONFUSED John, LOOK AT YOUR COURT PAPERS.
    ALL the ANSWERS ARE THERE!!!

    You have to be kidding me!! I for one am not hiding behind any computer!! I spent 60 days in Foothills because I did look in the mirror and my lfe, and what benzos were doing to destroy it!! I wanted help I wanted a healthy life my family life back, off these horrible pills. I truly believed this man would help!! His Facility made my life worse not me!! I feel I was brain washed at a time when I was sick thought I was in the hands of A REAL DOCTOR!! I am not in ant way slandering John Haines I am trying to save a life!! He will soon kill someone if he is not stopped, OMG! What is wrong with this world, a court order to stop Clients from standing up to this con man? I am appalled shame on you or whoever is trying to take this thread away!! If it is not true it would not bother you John you would laugh at it. However I feel it is all true I lived it for 60 days I did not run away, I worked hard at getting off those pills and was tapered way too fast, My Pharmacists, Doctor, and Therapist, all are in agreement educated people John that I have been victimized and are all working together to get be back to some quality of life, Yes I was damaged when I entered, but came out worse because once you had your money you did not give a damn about me my health issues mental health issues! Please do not call me a fake or a person that is angry and writing untrue statements on this thread!!

    You are a sick person and I would tell in any Law Court in Canada and to your face if I had the chance! What you did to me and other clients I had the chance to see enter that door so sick in need of help and destroyed if not almost died!! You Mr. Haines need to look in the mirror and ask yourself at what cost will it take you to grow up and take responsibility for your actions? My only mistake in all of this that I truly believed you with my heart and soul. Guess what John karma is a bitch!! You may have stole money from my family lied to me and my husband, placed me under the care of a Doctor who did not know what he was doing with me and benzos, what a joke when a Doctor actually asks a Client a question, about life!! Please if you went to school you would know these simple answers to your questions! LOL, Yes I did get entertained that I must say!! The GONG SHOW we called it!! I will continue on with my recovery and my well being but I am in no way through with you J H!! I will see justice done for me and many others you hurt.
    I will file a law suit against you for the harm you did, and the lies oh so many lies! I will look you in eyes and ask you questions and see if you can even remember talking to me outside one sunny day while you paid a visit to the Beautiful Majestic Lodge!! You see after awhile when you tell so many lies you cannot remember what you told, who, and when!! I remember because I lived it for 60 days!!! Do you??
