L. Ron Hubbard


L. Ron Hubbard found, though, that people begin taking drugs for a reason: To ease the agony of a physical condition, to numb themselves against certain situations in their lives, to relieve boredom, to feel better. The number of possible reasons is as great as the number of people taking drugs. By taking drugs the person was trying to handle or cure something. At the bottom, then, the drug problem is essentially spiritual. The being, in some way hurt, was led into the false solution that drugs could cure this. The solution, as many learned the hard way, turned out to be a trap from which there was no true escape until the drug-handling technology of L. Ron Hubbard.

A vital part of the Drug Rundown, then, includes finding the pains, emotions, sensations and other unwanted feelings the person was suffering from — and for which drugs became the cure. When these are found, each is addressed in auditing. Unless the reasons a person went onto drugs in the first place are resolved, the person is forever left with the original condition for which drugs were a “solution.”

When the original problem is addressed, the person himself is at last free from any effects of drugs and free from the need to take them.
