Narconon has been operating for over 40 years, and claims a high success rate. The rehabilitation program for drug and alcohol addiction says that 75% of its graduates have made full and lifetime recoveries. Narconon also offers preventative programs, often given to publicly-funded schools.
But not everyone is singing Narconon's praises.
Touted as a secular program, Christians such as 'Watchman on the Wall' Colin Henderson was shocked to discover that when he was enrolled in the program, he was proslytized with Scientology. And he was also denied his prescribed blood pressure medication.
Human rights and public safety activist David Love says the program is dangerous. He graduated from it and also worked in a Narconon center. After a close friend of his died in March, Dave vowed to get justice.
Damian DeWitt, who earned a Master's in Divinity, will offer his insight.
