Narconon: Deceit and Quakery

Recently I have been researching the Narconon organisation and have visited their website to see if there is any mention of Scientology or L Ron Hubbard. On first arriving at the webpage you are met with many happy pictures of the people who the programme has managed to reform and with small paragraphs on how great the organisation is. This is evidently an advertising technique used by many multi-national corporations so we can't be too hard on them for that, so I had to research more. I clicked on the 'About Narconon' and was directed to a page which told me in great detail about the founder of the Narconon project, William Benitez, and also talked a little about the founder and demi-God of Scientology, L Ron Hubbard. His name was in the form of a hyperlink so I clicked on that and was redirected to a page which gave information on Hubbard and his life. Nowhere on that page was the Church mentioned and it was left to me to do a little research myself. The parent organisation of Narconon is ABLE (Association for Better Living and Education) which was created by The Church of Scientology in 1988 and were known to be involved in the negotiations with the IRS back in the 90's. It's also well known that the teachings and doctrines of the Church are firmly in place in Narconon centres around the world therefore Scientology is a key part of their treatment. I want to learn more about the Narconon organisation, so could any of you tell me more about it? Thanks in advance!

NarCONon is indeed quackery. 'Invented' by Hubbard who was not a doctor, scientist, health care worker and did not have any health care or mental health care accreditation, it has no basis in scientific fact. It has repeatedly been denounced by doctors and other drug addiction organizations.

Wikipedia has a very lengthy entry on this scientology front group. Make no mistake, NarCONon is 100% scientology and by that association, it is built on lies and deceit. How is it organized? It reports back to David Miscavaige in whatever circuitous route it can manage to obfuscate its true nature. Anytime scientology methods, processes and procedures are used by any of its front groups, the cult must get paid.

The scientology brand is so toxic that any mention of it or hubbard is intentionally buried in its literature and web sites. This is proof of it's deceitful nature.

Yes, Narconon is indeed quackery, but it is secular quackery

which must never be confused with the religious quackery of Scientology

which is identical!

I'm about 3/4 of the way through "The Unbreakable Miss Lovely", and when I read this I thought about Paulette and the times she was persuaded to talk about what projects she was involved in and who was asking her about the projects and why. Alexander if you visit Tony Ortega's dot org site you will find many of his daily posts are about Narconon.

It's not secular in reality...

Not even close

The reason for the high levels of niacin and b1 narconon uses is for treating body thetans but they tried to keep that a secret, you can read up on this on wikileaks
