What is Narconon?

Narconon is a highly effective drug-free withdrawal, detoxification and rehabilitation program which utilizes techniques developed by L. Ron Hubbard. Narconon, meaning “no drugs,” began as a grass-roots movement in the mid-1960s when an inmate of the Arizona State Prison solved his own drug problem using principles found in one of L. Ron Hubbard’s books. He then used those same principles to help solve drug-related problems of fellow inmates.

Today, the Narconon drug rehabilitation procedure is at work in over 40 nations. More than a quarter-million are now living drug-free lives through Narconon programs, while an estimated 18 million more have been reached through Narconon drug education services.

With success rates at least four times higher than international averages, Mr. Hubbard’s drug rehab technology has given rise to some 200 Narconon centers and groups. At the hub of the network is Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma where rehab specialists learn to apply the program to handle drug problems other facilities are loath to even touch.
