Johnny Lewis' Dad Thought Scientology-Approved Treatment Center Was Helping His Son

johnny lewis death father scientology michael lewis failed treatment center

In the weeks and months leading up to his unthinkable murder/suicide, Johnny Lewis' father tried everything he could think of to help his son.

We told you Michael Lewis was a high-level Scientologist and friend to L. Ron Hubbard; it seems he used those connections within the religion to try and help his son through Scientology-approved rehab and treatment centers.

The Sons of Anarchy actor's Dad thought Johnny responded well to the rehab program at Ridgeview, an Altadena, CA drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Ridgeview advises against psychiatric medication for patients — as per the rules of Scientology — and endorses alternative methods toward reaching wellness.

Clearly, the treatment was not successful.

Johnny dropped out of the rehab facility opting instead to finish a jail sentence.

Several days after his release from prison, Johnny murdered his 81-year-old landlady Catherine Davis and her cat.

    Oh, thanks, Ridgeview, for your stance against psychiatric medicine. And I'm sure Altadena thanks you as well.

    Unfortunately Scientology programs are no longer effective in many cases. All their money goes into lawsuits and building up the church coffers. Death of scientologists in the news is almost an everyday affair.

    The 12-Step religious AA/NA cult treatment & Scientology cult treatment programs are 100% PROVEN FAILURES.

    People can quit drugs & alcohol on their own without paying RELIGIOUS CULTS!

    I read that the dad had exhausted his resources trying to get help for this boy. I can't imagine how much the dad and family must be hurting. : {

    Well his Dad is a huge idiot who lost the ability to help his son by following a cult. L Ron lost his own son to suicide because L Ron couldn't even help his own son. Lewis though took the lives of 2 other beings. Sad so sad. I'm tired of hearing people say they "tried" to help him, they were not "shocked" by this. No one did shit, if they had a Judge would have put this guy away for years not days, years . Everybody cut him every break because he was an tv actor.
