Narconon Counselors Lose Certification

"Gary Smith, the chief executive officer of Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma, and several of the drug and alcohol rehabilitation center’s employees have had their drug counseling certifications revoked.
Karla Taylor, President of the National Association of Forensic Counselors, can not say why the licenses have been revoked."

Narconon is a front for the Church of Scientology. The group uses L. Ron Hubbard's techniques to "cleanse" addicts from drugs. This cleanse involves a lot of exercise and sauna time "sweating out the toxins" from the drugs. They offer a vitamin treatment as well.

These cleanses are hardly safe. Three patients have died at the Arrowhead facility alone since October 2011.
