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.
