In Both the U.S. and Mexico, we Must Advance not Retreat From Strategic Government Goals Regarding Drug Addiction and Drug-Related Crime, Says Narconon International
Date:6/4/2009

LOS ANGELES, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is issued by Narconon International. "More drug rehabilitation and broader drug prevention, not less, is needed if we intend long-term reduction in drugs and crime along our border," says Clark Carr, president of Narconon International, a network of over 150 drug rehab and education centers. "The ONDCP, the UNODC, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, in fact, governments everywhere agree that reducing drug demand must parallel military and police interdiction. That includes turning drug addicts' lives around."

Just days ago, gunmen shot and killed five recovering drug addicts, ages 18 to 36 years old, in a Juarez rehab center named "La Vida Sin Adicciones." The day before, in a sweep across northern Mexico 25 police officers had been detained, accused of ties to drug trafficking. Whether there was a direct connection is a moot point. These two incidents are only the latest violence in the drug wars along the US/Mexican border.

"We salute the staff of La Vida," says Carr, "for their dedication and courage. We must also recognize that drug rehab staffs everywhere confront evil daily - helping addicts with more or less unsavory histories revolutionize their lives in order to live ethically and drug-free."

With 24 years working hands-on in drug rehabilitation and delivering drug education, Clark Carr has made a career of promoting the concept of a drug-free society. U.S. Narconon drug rehab centers closest to Mexico are in Georgia, Florida, Texas, Southern California, and Oklahoma. Narconon South Texas in Harlingen delivers in Spanish, as well as the Mexican centers in Queretero, north of Mexico City, and in Navojoa, Sonora.

"Finding the right balance between force and reason has always been the challenge of civilization," says Carr. "If we were to vote for Czars of Anti-Civilization, drug barons and their narcotrafficking bootlickers would be frontrunners." But underneath it all are drugs, he says, and their addictive consequences. This is where drug education and prevention come in, and rehabilitation.

The vicious alternative to an ethical and drug-free society is being dumped on our doorsteps. But those persons might once have been educated, or rehabilitated. Effective drug rehab methods exist. Recovery is possible. Do we have the guts not to quit doing the good work?
