NeurVana owner's deny allegations

In response to a story published on Castanet last week, the owners of NeurVana Recovery and Wellness Centre have issued a statement through their legal counsel.

The statement begins, “NeurVana Recovery and Wellness Inc. and its owners deny any allegations of wrongdoing.”

It goes on to say that in respect to the claims filed by Doug and Shirley McLachlin, David and Arleen Thordarson, and Cameron and Sandra Colquhoun, they cannot comment as the matters are before the court.

The document also says the Kenney’s deny allegations made by Danielle Downs, stating that Downs was never an employee.

“She was a client who was so pleased with the help she received at NeurVana that she returned as a volunteer.”

The statement ends by saying NeurVana has received “an outpouring of support from several families thanking them for saving their children’s lives.”

The Kenny’s also point to a “recent independent study commissioned by NeurVana” that found 80 per cent of parents were satisfied by the results of youth who had completed or graduated from the NeurVana program. However, no further facts or details are given to back up that claim.
