Toronto ON — Narconon, Scientology's drug rehabilitation program, soon will be deprived of a free listing among the emergency numbers inside the front cover of the Metro Toronto telephone directory.

The listing, which has appeared for the past five years, will be replaced by the number of the Addiction Research Foundation because Bell Canada has revised its policy to give precedence to organizations that have been created by government legislation.

Narconon received another setback last week when the Ontario Ministry of Health turned down a request for $256,000. The group was told that any further applications for money should include details about the techniques it uses to help the ministry assess the program's worth.
