Saving Lives from Drugs
Narconon (meaning “no narcotics”) drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme is open to all who desire to end their addiction and lead productive, drug-free lives.
The Narconon programme not only addresses the debilitating effects of drug abuse on the mind and body, but also helps to resolve why a person turned to drugs in the first place. As a result, whilst individual results may vary, tens of thousands have successfully graduated from the Narconon programme into new lives free from drug use.
The Narconon programme is based on the research and writings of L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of the Scientology religion. However, Narconon does not require any religious belief and a person does not become a Scientologist by doing the programme.
Mr. Hubbard began his research into drug abuse in the 1960s. The resulting research provided the means by which many individuals say they have become free of addiction.
Narconon centres use the methodology from Mr. Hubbard to assist participants to overcome the physical and emotional causes of their addiction and, most importantly for long-term drug-free living, to reduce the cravings for drugs that can lead to relapse.
Narconon today constitutes a worldwide network of 45 residential rehab centres. Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma is the Narconon network’s leading drug rehabilitation and international training centre. It provides drug rehabilitation services as well as onsite training and apprenticing for drug rehab professionals from across the globe.
Continental Narconon centres serve entire regions as drug rehab and training facilities—in Africa, Australia, Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom and Latin America.
A unique Narconon facility near Ojai, California, has been established specifically to serve the special needs of prominent individuals in the arts and leaders of society.
Narconon extends its care beyond rehabilitation, reaching out to the wider community to stem drug use before it turns to abuse and addiction. Narconon drug education specialists have provided millions of young people and adults with compelling information about drugs and drug abuse to help steer them away from taking drugs.
This site presents an overview of nearly five decades of operation and accomplishment of the Narconon programme. Here is a description of the programme’s unique components of drug-free withdrawal, New Life Detoxification and life skills, with pictorial representation of the New Life Detoxification component and a view of the breadth of Narconon rehab centres operating throughout the world, including new model Continental Narconon centres designed to provide the rehabilitation programme alongside training and apprenticing of rehab specialists.
Perhaps the most significant perspectives are those of the individuals, families and communities whose lives are transformed when one or many in their midst are rescued from drugs. Programme graduates, their loved ones, and civic, governmental and addiction officials speak to the successful and lasting freedom from addiction they have seen realised through the Narconon programme.
