Former president of Narconon Oklahoma now calls it "watered-down version of introductory Scientology" — Village Voice
Type: Blog
Author(s): Tony Ortega
Source: Village Voice
A week ago, we reported that a former "employee" at Scientology's flagship drug treatment center in Oklahoma – Narconon Arrowhead – told us that the controversial center was delivering Scientology training rather than drug education, and that its officials have been concerned for years that its state certification was "extremely vulnerable." (The center is currently under investigation by local and state agencies for four deaths that have occurred there, three since last October.) We didn't name that source, but now, he's ...

Narconon’s Big Con — The Fix

The Scientology-backed rehab promises addicts they can sweat out their demons in sweltering saunas. But critics charge that the organization is the devil itself. L. Ron Hubbard, the prolific science fiction author and founder of the Church of Scientology, may have been judged “a mental case” (according to the F.B.I.) and “a pathological liar” (according to a Los Angeles Supreme Court judge), but to tens of thousands of his eager followers worldwide, the man discovered an approach to recovery that outclasses ...

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (CN) — A father claims Narconon International and the Association for Living and Education International are fronts for Scientology, and that he paid them $35,500 for "essentially worthless treatment" for his drug-addicted son. He says the groups run rehab programs "to enrich themselves and to provide a recruit base for the Church of Scientology rather than to provide competent treatment for chemical dependency." David Compton sued the two companies, and Narconon Vista, alleging fraud and breach of contract. ...

I worked on the corporate restructuring in the early 80s that lead to the various “ABLE” groups (Narconon, Applied Scholastics, etc.) falling under the “ABLE” umbrella which in turn was 100% controlled by organized scientology’s Sea Organization under different corporate umbrellas (mostly Church of Scientology International “CSI"). I also handled or oversaw the handling of all their main legal matters around the world as part of the Guardian’s Office for some seven years prior to that. Prior to the “corporate sortout” ...

Copyright © 2009 Albuquerque Journal Journal Staff Writer The Second Chance drug rehab program was pitched to lawmakers and the judiciary as the missing link in a broken system that recycled non-violent drug offenders between jails, prisons and the streets. The past year, it has struggled through money problems and accusations that it is housing ineligible inmates. On Saturday, faced with a city-delivered Jan. 31 deadline to vacate, Second Chance officials moved the last of its inmates out. But throughout the ...

TAMPA, Fla. - The Rev. Charles Kennedy travels the country preaching the brilliance of L. Ron Hubbard’s words. Children in his after-school program learn with the Scientology founder’s methods; church members study one of his books. The minister calls Scientologists the kindest people he’s met and their programs the best he’s found. One thing sets Kennedy apart: He and his congregants are not Scientologists. They are Christians. The Glorious Church of God in Christ here is among a number of houses ...
