    Wired: Trump DOJ Nominee Pushed Scientology-Based Detox Program

    ON SEPTEMBER 15, the Trump administration nominated former criminal investigator and Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association president Jon Adler as the Department of Justice's director of the Bureau of Justice Assistance. In that role, Adler will not only help set national criminal justice policy, he'll also oversee all relevant state and local grant programs. Judging by one of Adler's initiatives, this should make the Church of Scientology very, very happy.

    That's because in addition to his official role at FLEOA, Adler spent a number of years on the advisory board of the Heroes Health Fund, a group that purports to offer support for "firefighters, police, EMTs, veterans, and others harmed by toxic exposures in the line of duty" using a detoxification program developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

    That program has existed under a variety of names over the years, including Purif, the Purification Rundown, Narconon, and the Hubbard Method. It posits that bodies and spirits can be "purified" through a combination of extensive sauna-induced sweat sessions, a niacin-heavy multivitamin, light exercise, and the consumption of pure vegetable oil. Hubbard, of course, had no medical training of any kind, and his detoxification method has been denounced by countless institutions and medical professionals, such as the Los Angeles and San Francisco school districts, the California Medical Association, the National Council Against Health Fraud, and a former Surgeon General of the United States.

    Trump Appointee For DOJ Drug Abuse Efforts Has Strong Ties To Scientology-Based Detox Programs.

    Red State: Trump Appointee For DOJ Drug Abuse Efforts Has Strong Ties To Scientology-Based Detox Programs

    Earlier this month announced several new Trump administration appointments. Trump’s pick to head up the DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Assistance is Jon Adler who previously was president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association. It was reported in WIRED that Adler sat on the advisory board for a controversial detoxification program based on pseudoscience invented by L. Ron Hubbard and pushed by the Scientology cult under various names over the years.


    The potential problems here are two-fold. First, a position of authority is being given to someone who is willing to lend his name and reputation to pseudo-science invented by a known charlatan. Second, that person may be in a position to funnel taxpayer dollars to an organization that is scamming first responders who may be in need of real medical treatment.

    We’ve seen how some Scientology treatments work in recent news.

    Appointing anyone with ties to this cult or who supports its fake treatment programs shows incredibly poor judgement.
