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 resolves why a person turned to drugs in the first place. As a result, tens of thousands have graduated from the Narconon programme into new lives free from drug use.

The Narconon programme is based on the discoveries and writings of L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of the Scientology religion. Narconon is not part of the Church of Scientology, and you do not have to become a member of the religion to do the programme.

Mr. Hubbard began his research into drug abuse in the 1960s. The resulting discoveries provided the means by which individuals could become free of addiction.

Narconon centres use these discoveries to assist participants to overcome the physical and emotional causes of their addiction and, most importantly for long-term drug-free living, to end the cravings for drugs that can lead to relapse.

Narconon today constitutes a worldwide network of residential rehab centres. Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma is the flagship centre, providing drug rehabilitation services for those seeking freedom from addiction as well as on-site training and apprenticing for drug rehab professionals from all over the world.

Continental Narconon centres serve entire regions as drug rehab and training facilities—in Africa, 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.


Worldwide Network

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 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 withdrawal, detoxification and life skills, with pictorial representation of the detoxification component and a view of the breadth of Narconon rehab centres operating throughout the world, including our 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 realised through the Narconon programme.
