What is Narconon?
Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma is the largest residential drug rehabilitation facility in the United States and the premier organization for the Narconon programme.
Though the programme is independent and non-religious, it is avidly supported by Churches of Scientology and their members worldwide — who themselves comprise a 100 percent drug-free community of millions — for its results.
Narconon — meaning literally “no drugs” — was begun in 1966 by Willie Benitez, an addict and inmate in a state penitentiary in Arizona, who found a book by
Narconon Arrowhead graduate Richie Armstead: “Narconon saved not only my life, but my wife Stephanies’ too. Thank you all for my wonderful life.”
2) communication skills to gain focus and self-control
3) restoration of personal ethics and values
4) life skills that provide objective methods of dealing with any situation the drug-free individual may encounter so that they are not compelled to return to drug use.
There are 110 Narconon centres for rehabilitation and/or drug education and prevention in 32 nations. The international Narconon training facility is located in the state of Oklahoma in the United States, and is the single largest residential drug rehab facility in the nation.
The programme is internationally acclaimed by former addicts and their families, validated by drug experts, and supported by governments in several countries for its success rate: an average of 70 percent of students who complete the programme never return to drugs.
