Nepali Home Minister Commends Narconon International for Saving Lives
Date:9/8/2009

KATHMANDU, Nepal, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- "That Narconon International is producing real, life-saving results I personally saw in the eyes of your graduates in Narconon Nepal," wrote State Minister for Home Affairs Rizwan Ansari to Clark Carr, president of the international Narconon network, in a formal commendation. The Home Ministry presented the document to Mr. Carr at the conclusion of an August 2009 technical and administration inspection visit Narconon International had paid to the new and growing Narconon Nepal drug rehabilitation center in Kathmandu.

"Nepal faces fearsome problems with drugs," continued the Minister. "My ministry is seriously trying to cope with and solve this problem. In this regard, we will expect and appreciate the continuing cooperation of Narconon International."

Nepal's worst drug problem currently, other than hashish and marijuana (which grows wild) is "brown sugar," the distillate left over from heroin manufacture. "This is the scourge of South Asia," said Carr, "including India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, where you can also get the purest heroin from Afghanistan." Brown sugar, although cheap, is as addictive as heroin. Many students at Narconon Nepal, Carr observed, were addicted to pharmaceuticals, as is the case in the United States, and others to a grab bag of chemicals, including cough syrup.

"Drug money," Carr conjectured, "is being used to fund armed rebel groups such as the Maoists and Indian sectarian bands, as it funds terrorism elsewhere. Income being diverted to drugs is the last thing Nepal needs, where personal income falls below 200 dollars per year."

This is why Narconon International has been working with former Kathmandu Superintendent of Police Basanta Kunwar and his wife, Puja, to establish a major residential drug rehabilitation center in Nepal's capital. Kunwar's center already has 60 students, but will expand next year to serve 150 when they move to a new facility on a mountain top outside the city with a magnificent view of the

Himalayas.

Carr and two other staff had been in Kathmandu several weeks, performing a detailed inspection of the Nepali Narconon program. "This is one of our prime functions," said Carr. "It is how we maintain the quality of result Narconon is famous for - 75% of our graduates living drug-free for life."

The Home Minister acknowledged the Narconon program's effectiveness. "I wish also to thank your philosopher, L. Ron Hubbard," he wrote, "for developing such a precious technology to cope with and resolve this terrible problem."
