"As Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Substance Abuse, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your organization for the work you have done in fighting substance abuse. Because of the hard-working Narconon program and other similar organizations, the current ideal of a drug-free society may one day become a reality.
The accomplishments of Narconon speak for themselves. The response letters from people who have participated in the program indicate total support for Narconon. Narconon's unique approach in helping addicts off of drug dependence at a more rapid than normal rate is remarkable.
The fight against substance abuse must be a joint project involving both government and the private sector. I am proud to be associated with Narconon and encourage others to join the fight against substance abuse. Research has shown that the most effective deterrent to substance abuse is the result of the work of grass roots organizations such as Narconon. Through the combined efforts of all segments of our community, I am confident that one day we will realize our goal of a drug free society."
John Seymour - State Senator
"I write this letter based upon four years as a prosecutor in drugs for the Federal Department of Justice, and thirteen years on the Provincial Bench of this province.
One of the very few functioning organizations successful in the rehabilitation of heroin addicts, in my opinion, is Narconon.
Any support which this group can obtain from public funding is in my opinion very worthy."
Charles M.Hyde, Judge.
Provincial Court of British Columbia
"The results that you obtain are impressive.... It has been very positive and instructive to have met some of Narconon's earlier clients, people who are free from their addiction and have been able to come back to normal work and family life."
Margareta Fogelberg - Member of Parliment - Sweden
"I have been involved with crime and related activities as a police officer and now Commanding Officer, Vice and Narcotics Squad, Chelsea for about twenty-six years."
I can definitely state that there is a drug problem in existence and this means a lot of related crime which is a direct result of an addict paying for his habit.
The Narconon Program takes addicts off drugs without using any substitute drugs. This means a lot since you have a program that gets rid of drug addicts in the communities, brings families closer together, and handles the crime problem on the streets.
"I support the Narconon Program and urge you to do so as well."
Lt. Francis J. Belanger - Vice Squad Commander
"As a medical doctor who has examined many Narconon clients over the years, I have had a unique opportunity to observe the workability of this program.
Several of these former clients have continued to see me as their personal physician, so I have been able to regularly monitor their conditions over the years since the completion of their treatments.
I can state without reservation that the Narconon program offers the best chance of full recovery for those who have abused drugs or alcohol. The totally drug-free approach and use of sauna and nutritional supplements to detoxify the person from tissue accumulation of drugs and toxins make the program unique in its field."
"I urge that continuing support be given to this most worthwhile rehabilitation service."
Paul Jaconello, M.D.
"Your program has once again helped my company salvage a very valuable employee with a drug or alcohol problem. Rarely does this happen in our company, but when it does, we are glad you're there.
This person was a technician who knew his job well but was starting to destroy his work relationship due to an alcohol and then drug-related problem. Therefore, before quality suffered, we sent him to Narconon. His problem dissolved and his quality and presence of self is there again.
Narconon (on Mr. Hubbard's technology) has consistently been there for over 20 years now. It helped close to 60,000 people get completely free of drugs and countless thousands to never touch them. I appreciate that as I am an old fashioned American. I value man. Unlike many newcomers who seem to be in the field for the buck or status and who are ineffective to this purpose, Narconon really does the job and has saved many companies. I know of key people some of whom were even executives who temporarily needed a little help with drugs or alcohol.
Your value is incredible. I hope you discover more ways you can come in and help their people before it affects the bottom line. The money is always well spent."
"Thank you always."
Chairman of the Board - Northland Purewater
“In the course of my work I have had the opportunity to observe first hand the results of the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program, and have found them to be nothing less than miraculous. The common theme expressed by people who have completed the program is that they are no longer encumbered by chemicals which were shutting off their lives. They express increased mental clarity and new hope for the future. Their lives upon completion of the program are happier, healthier and more productive.”
-Megan Shields, M.D.
“I have acted as Medical consultant to the Narconon program for 15 years. For the past decade I have studied the results obtained through the use of a detoxification method developed by Hubbard, utilizing vitamins, sauna baths, and exercise, which is a part of the Narconon program.”
“While this detox method is strenuous, it is easily and safely accomplished after a medical checkup, when done under standard supervision by trained personnel. “Narconon clients, with histories of moderate to extremely heavy substance abuse, show a marked improvement in alertness, clarity of thought and general health by undergoing this treatment. Most also report a substantial reduction in their craving for drugs or alcohol.”
“Published scientific studies of the technique have shown it to be successful in reducing the concentration in body tissues of a variety of toxins and contaminants, and I highly recommend its continuing use as an effective tool in the treatment of addictions.”
-Kathleen Kerr, M.D.
“It is my pleasure to provide you with my professional opinion of the Narconon drug rehabilitation program. For many years I have dedicated myself with the difficult task of rehabilitating substance abusers. I have studied a variety of systems of rehabilitation and I have concluded that we have in our possession a totally workable program through Narconon.”
“Narconon utilizes a total drug-free approach in ridding a person of chemical dependency.
In a study conducted in Spain by an independent sociological research foundation it was found that 78% of the individuals were still off drugs two years after they completed the program. ”
“The Spanish study also showed that before entering the Narconon program 62.2% committed robberies and 73% sold drugs. After the Narconon program, robberies and drug dealing decreased to 0%. In other words, 100% had no criminal activity after the program.”
“The Spanish study was conducted by a sociological group called Tecnicos Asociados de Investigacion y Marketing (TAIM). They have conducted other studies for the Ministry of Health, the Social Services Department of the Town Hall of Madrid, and the National Institute of Social Services of the Ministry of Labor and Social Security..."
“As a doctor of the medical profession I would highly recommend the Narconon program to you for those addicted to drugs. I have seen over and over drug addicts go to the Narconon program and leave drug free."
- Dr. Juan I. Redondo
“Narconon has a program that works. I know. I did it. It saved my life”

I am pleased to convey my sincere congratulations to all those associated with your outstanding organization as you celebrate 25 years of providing drug prevention and rehabilitation services to those who need them.
The scourge of drugs remains one of the most difficult and vital challenges that our society has yet to overcome. Far too many people have been tragically affected with substance addiction, many in the prime of their lives. This cycle of hopelessness must not continue, and only through the determined efforts of individuals and organizations such as your can we prevail in this struggle.
For the past 25 years, you have been actively involved in helping to prevent drug abuse, and counseling and educating those individuals who have fallen prey to the allure of illicit drugs. Since your founding in 1966, you have expanded to included 24 Narconon Centers in 12 countries worldwide, strong evidence that your programs and methods have proven to be effective.
As your international headquarters are located here in California, it is most appropriate that you have chosen to celebrate your 25th anniversary in the Golden State. Please accept my best wishes for an enjoyable and memorable silver anniversary celebration and every future success.
Sincerely, Pete Wilson
