Good afternoon . My name's Michael Leroux . I have a matter that needs legal representation . This past January 25 , 2018 I went to a rehabilitation center called The Discovery House in Reseda , California . It's an accredited rehab . I was cleared with my insurance/Optum Health to stay until the end of April . However , I got into a bicycle accident under the care of The Discovery House that required seven stitches to my head injury on March 6th , 2018 . The Discovery House did not issue helmets along with the bicycles at the time . The very next day on 3/7/18 I was notified by the Councilor George that my insurance needed me to go to a rehabilitation center closer to my residence in New York . This was completely false as I found out from my insurance case manager Melony Cleveland with Optum Health . I was given just two days notice with nothing set up back in my home area like a new rehab center or even AA meetings to attend . Also , while under the care of The Discovery House , I was told by their coordinator Mary , that while in treatment my rent back home was being taken care of . This too was entirely false . When I flew back home on March 10 , 2018 , I had no place to stay
