Short history of Narconon

Narconon was coined from “no narcotics” and the rehabilitation program is for people who wish to end their drug addiction and lead drug-free lives. The program addresses the debilitating effects of abuse on the body and mind and also why an individual turned to drugs in the first instance.

The program is set on the research and writings of the founder of Scientology as a religion, L. Ron Hubbard. However, the organization is not a religious body, and members are not indoctrinated by joining the program.

The centres use the research to assist members to overcome the physical and emotional causes of the addiction and end their craving for substances that may lead to a relapse.
