Narconon Salutes Its 1,200 Staff Worldwide on 13,000 Lives Saved This Last Decade

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Numbers are not just statistics. Sometimes they are human lives. In a decade, like so many in the preceding century when lives became daily body counts in televised wars, there have been uncounted lives saved. Narconon is certainly not the only organization whose staff have worked 24/7 year in, year out, to save lives. We congratulate the selfless staffs of all humanitarian groups and those individual human beings who have struggled to raise the standard of civilization where other forces pull it down. Allow us a few moments to celebrate our own.

Narconon drug rehabilitation and education staff have grown to over 1,200 in the last ten years. Many are graduates of the Narconon program, which has never given up and never will on the concept that a recovering alcoholic or other drug addict can achieve a stably drug-free and ethical life. Some others also believe this, not enough. Another hypothesis circulates that addiction is a chronic relapsing disease. This is only a theory, not a law.

The Narconon drug rehab program's 13,373 lives saved just this last decade are a testimony that recovery is possible. Stable, life-enriching, full recovery - it's over, drugs are behind you, you don't have to wake up or fall asleep anymore worried to the bone that drugs will drag you down tomorrow. Why? Because the drugs aren't talking to you anymore. Their voice has been stilled, and your own self has found its own voice.

The Narconon sauna detoxification program through a regimen of exercise, nutrition, and repeated sweating in low-heat, ventilated dry saunas vaporizes the 'drug voice.' Once the residual metabolites are gone, their silent whisper in the back of the head loses the power of its effect. Then the rest of the Narconon life skills program kicks in, and the recovering addict turns himself inside out to become a new person once and for forever. h

To save 13,000 lives since 2000 Narconon needed many new centers, and our staff plus volunteers, some being graduates or their parents, have opened 38 new drug rehab centers, 4 of them out-patient, comprising 1,200 new beds since 1999. Fourteen of our new centers were in the USA, including Narconon Arrowhead, our international training center. The others span from Siberia to South Africa, from Nepal to Egypt.

There are more than drug rehab graduate stories to tell. There are the stories of those persons who did not give up on the addict, who convinced him or her to keep on, keep trying... because it's worth it, you can do it. And they did. Congratulations to the heroes who helped them do so.

Of course, there's more to this ongoing saga. Visit
