The Narconon program was founded in the United States in 1966.
The Narconon program not only addresses the debilitating effects of drug abuse on the mind and body, but also helps resolve why a person turned to drugs in the first place. As a result, many people have graduated from the Narconon program into new lives free from drug use.
The Narconon program is based on the discoveries and writings of L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of the Scientology religion. However, Narconon is non-religious and a person does not become a Scientologist by doing the program.
Mr. Hubbard began his research into drug abuse in the 1960s.The resulting discoveries provided the means by which we help individuals to 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 over 40 residential rehab centres.
