PER WICKSTROM'S MONROE COUNTY CHARM OFFENSIVE: Just How Offensive Will It Get? And Why Is Wickstrom Bragging About Operating Without A License in South Bend?

STATE OF INDIANA LICENSE APPLICATION PROCESS STALLED, BUT WICKSTROM CLAIMS HE'S ALREADY "OPENED UP" IN SOUTH BEND

Per Wickstrom's Monroe County charm offensive kicked into high gear on September 29 at Ford Field in Detroit when he "interviewed" April Demers, the Community Development Coordinator of Monroe County's Substance Abuse Coalition.

Shown above in a screen capture, Demers spoke with Wickstrom about the epidemic of heroin and prescription drug abuse in Monroe County. In the video, Demers tells Wickstrom that Monroe County has a higher percentage of people being treated for heroin and opiate addiction than any other county in Michigan, a statistic backed up by the Michigan Department of Community Health.

Wickstrom's considering Monroe County as the next stage in the expansion of his addiction empire. In a story posted on Sunday, November 17, I shared Wickstrom's interview with Randy Richardville, the Michigan State Senate Majority Leader. It appears Wickstrom conducted the interview during his tour earlier this month of Frenchtown Township's vacant Boysville facility.

During his discussion with Richardville, Wickstrom spun like a proverbial top--and your girl Miss Fortune has caught him in at least one lie.

After he explained to Richardville that he runs "a holistic program here in Michigan", Wickstrom claimed that he has "an organization in South Bend" that "just opened up there."

Funny, a spokesperson for the State of Indiana's Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) today confirmed exclusively in an email to Miss Fortune that the DMHA has not heard from Wickstrom's representatives since August 27. Indiana's DMHA had requested additional documentation and clarification from Wickstrom, which was due on September 14.

The licensing process for the South Bend facility, which was to be operated under the name "Tranquility Detox", has effectively stalled.

So there's no license, and if Wickstrom claims he "just opened up" in South Bend he's either lying or operating without a license.

Well, what is it?

If you're driving by 3606 E. Jefferson Boulevard in South Bend, slow down and take a look.  

Something tells Miss Fortune it's not so "tranquil" at Tranquility Detox.

Oh, and my favorite part of the video? At the 3:19 mark, Wickstrom terms the abuse of Adderall "prelavent".

That crunching and groaning you hear is the sound of Mrs. Maggie T, my favorite high school English teacher, rolling in her grave!
