State Orders O.C. Drug Rehab Provider To Cease Operations
The California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs has ordered Morningside Recovery -- an Orange County drug and alcohol rehabilitation operator -- to stop treating patients while regulators decide whether to revoke its licenses. ADP recently found that the organization had been carless with prescription drugs and was operating beyond the scope of its licenses. The company was ordered to shut down as of Nov. 2, 2011, but Morningside facilities still are treating patients. A licensing hearing has been scheduled for May 21.
