Recent studies show drug use in Hawaii is up and the use of narcotics continues to climb. A program recently brought to Hawaii is helping to tackle the problem. Drug abuse and addiction continue to grow by epidemic proportions in Hawaii. “Actually there’s a lot of people coming in for meth,” Bobby Newman Narconon Hawaii executive director said.

Editorial: Secure treatment would allow drug offenders second chance — Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Author(s): Rida Cabanilla

Drug addiction has led to a proliferation of repeat criminal offenders in Hawaii, creating an unsafe environment for our families. Many of the drugs in circulation today, especially methamphetamine - commonly known as "ice" - are highly addictive and can't adequately be treated by community-based methods such as psychotherapy or 12-step programs. This is why I introduced House Bill 358, promoting a secure drug treatment option. As an ex-drug addict testified before the House Committee on Finance, "Drug addicts are stuck ...

John Travolta and his family recently were spotted in Hawaii. Janet Charlton's Hollywood blog reports the reason that Travolta was visiting the Aloha state was for the church of Scientology's Narconon program and a potential fundraiser. Narconon is a four part treatment that is taken in nine steps, which critics and Scientology watchdog groups claim there are major red flags. Some have raised serious safety concerns, while othersclaim it is based on wholly unscientific theories and virtually all are very closely ...

John Travolta and his wife, Kelly Preston, will host a dinner on May 24 to raise money for Narconon Hawaii, an organization that promotes drug education, prevention and rehabilitation. But if you want to dine with the megastars, it will cost you. Individual seating starts at $2,500 per person. All tax-deductible proceeds go to the somewhat controversial nonprofit that the Hawaii-born Preston has actively supported. Narconon has been linked to the Church of Scientology, to which both Travolta and Preston belong. ...

Question: What ever happened to the Narconon anti-drug prevention program interested in holding presentations at Hawaii's public schools? Answer: State Department of Education officials are not allowing Narconon presentations at public schools. In February, state education officials stopped Narconon's drug prevention and education presentations at public schools on Oahu after Narconon received a negative evaluation by the California Department of Education. The California evaluation "found that the program offered inaccurate and unscientific information and was inconsistent with research-based practices." Based on ...

Narconon program has proven success For years an enemy has insidiously attacked us in Hawaii – drugs and drug abuse. Our keiki, neighbors, co-workers, our ohana have been grabbed by this monster and dragged down into the depths of human experience. No one is immune. It is hard to confront. Confronting a family member strung out on meth, I would not wish on anyone. Watching children get lured by advertising into the clutches of "innocent drugs" such as alcohol or marijuana ...

THE ISSUE California schools are being urged by the state superintendent to banish an anti-drug program planned for Hawaii schools. PRIVATE organizations are encouraged to join government agencies in the war against drugs, but their inaccurate or misleading proselytizing can make the problem worse. California's schools are being urged to drop one allegedly faulty program that has plans in Hawaii's schools. The Department of Education should step back and scrutinize that program and others that could add to the credibility problem ...

A former drug addict introduced Preston – who started experimenting with drugs at age 15 – to the program after she abused marijuana, Quaaludes, Ecstasy and cocaine until her mid-20s. Preston stopped using drugs through the program. "I just got off all of them through this," she said. Through Narconon, Preston wants to help drug users in Hawaii combat their ...

The Saturday afternoon church gathering was restful at best. A scriptural reading carried a timely message, warning that when religion declines in society, the state assumes the role as arbiter of public morality, and do we really want that? A little ritual of rapid-fire questions had us focusing on our self-centered tensions as leader Amy Suzuki directed us consciously relax "parts of body that you don't have to police." The setting featured a bust of L. Ron Hubbard, scientist and science ...

Despite a 10-year running battle with the Food and Drug Administration and the American Medical Assn., Scientology appears to have finally arrived on the West Side. Aided by a 1971 federal district court decision, the Church of Scientology is not only a recognized religious science but the largest and fastest-growing pandenominational church in this area. And the greatest concentration of its members may well be here. There are 75,000 Scientologists in Los Angeles, according to the Rev. Glenn A. Malkin, executive ...
