Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against L.A. Rehab Center

One80 Center, an A-list Hollywood rehab, has been hit with a lawsuit filed by the parents of Andrew Witkoff who died of an OxyContin overdose at its Sunset Plaza Drive sober living room two years ago. Andrew was 22 years old then.

The parents, Steven Witkoff who is a wealthy Manhattan real estate mogul whose holdings include the Woolworth Building and his wife Lauren, allege wrongful death, negligence, and fraud against the rehab center.

The complaint was filed on August 9 in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by THR for lack of monitoring oversight allowing Andrew to leave its premises unattended, shirk his urine tests and able to buy illicit drugs online while under its care. On the other hand, the Witkoffs accused the center of providing a $1000/day sober companion for their son who was not properly trained as promised and did not supervise him when he left the premises. They have been paying for the sober companion who has no formal training and whose been working previously as a driver at the same rehab center.
