Records show that the facility, located in a converted 200 room hotel, received only provisional approval from Oklahoma's Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services in January, 2011.

The facility opened for business on September 1, 2011. An Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services inspection found several significant deficiencies in November 2011, and the state issued a temporary six-month permit January 27, 2012, ordering the facility to correct the deficiencies prior to the next scheduled inspection. 

Additional corrective action was required, and Arrowhead Medical Detox received another 6-month temporary permit in November 2012.  That permit expired on May 16, 2013
 
NOTE: Although Narconon Arrowhead ran the detox center, Pür Detox Inc., a Church of Scientology-affiliate that initially attempted to set up the facility, has a policy of quickly weaning clients off of psychiatric medications. Its controversial "purification rundown" method was first developed by the church’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard.
