This website dispels some of the myths and misinformation about the Narconon ® drug rehabilitation program. The Narconon program is a non-traditional program with over 70% of Narconon program graduates remaining drug-free two years after program completion.
The Narconon program was started in 1966 in Arizona State Prison by William Benitez, a sixteen-year heroin addict and inmate who wanted to get and stay clean once and for all. The remarkable success of the program at rehabilitating hard-core criminal drug addicts led Benitez, after his release in 1967, to improve the Narconon program and begin offering it to the general public.
The Narconon® drug rehabilitation program handles all types of drug addictions: heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, prescription medications and alcohol. The Narconon program is not a 12-step program; we believe that an individual is not powerless, and, in fact, must take responsibility for his or her own actions. There is extensive scientific documentation which proves the efficacy of the Narconon program which can be viewed on our flagship website http://www.stopaddiction.com/index.html or by clicking here.
The Narconon drug rehabilitation program is based on the writings and research of author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, who spent many years investigating the causes of, and cures for, drug addiction. The philosophy of the Narconon program is best explained by an article entitled The Life Cycle and Mechanics of Addiction, written by Gary W. Smith, the Executive Director of Narconon Arrowhead. Narconon Arrowhead also has a number of websites dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of many drugs, including:
and prescription drugs such as methadone and anti-depressants
The real effectiveness of the Narconon program, however, is communicated best by the successes of its graduates. Some success stories can be viewed here.
