The Narconon Program: Producing New Lives Without Drugs

The need for effective drug rehabilitation technology is today greater than ever before, for the scope of the problem is vast. Internationally, the illegal narcotics industry generates estimated annual revenues of $500 billion to $1 trillion.

This astonishing statistic is only one indicator of the many social repercussions of drug abuse. Criminals on drugs, for example, are responsible for the vast majority of all crimes committed. According to US Justice Department studies, three out of four suspects arrested for crimes of violence test positive for illegal drugs.

To meet this crucial need for effective drug rehabilitation, Narconon has expanded greatly in the years since its founding. As the program moved into other countries, Narconon International was formed to direct the drug education and rehabilitation activities and provide assistance and support to Narconon centers and their staffs throughout the world. Narconon International has a goal to achieve a drug-free Earth. It provides effective and complete drug rehabilitation for those enslaved by drugs and works to prevent our future generations from ever becoming addicted. Located in Los Angeles, Narconon International today supervises worldwide drug education and drug rehabilitation programs.

Today, commensurate with the more than a quarter-million drug-free lives achieved through L. Ron Hubbard’s technology has been the expansion of Narconon centers internationally. Narconon centers providing rehabilitation and/or education services are currently administered in 50 centers located in 21 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition, an estimated one million people worldwide have availed themselves of Narconon’s drug education services, including more than 115,000 schoolchildren in 1997 alone.
