otwithstanding this century's array of technological wonders--in medicine, transportation, nuclear energy, and electronic communications--we live in a seriously troubled society. Under the triple onslaught of drug abuse, criminality and declining morals much of this world has truly become a wasteland.
Sensing where this world was headed as early as 1950, L. Ron Hubbard began to search out a means by which, as he wrote, "man can recover to himself some of the happiness, some of the sincerity, some of the love and kindness with which he was created."
Although L. Ron Hubbard had long recognized what drugs potentially meant in terms of human misery, it was the so called psychedelic revolution of the 1960's that prompted his most intensive work on the subject. His reasoning was simple--no man can be spiritually free if chained to a chemical substance. Not only did drug abuse endanger one's health, but also one's learning rate, one's attitudes, one's personality and overall spiritual awareness. Indeed, following a 1972 review of what rampant drug use had wrought among youth in New York City, he began to speak of this drug epidemic in terms of a devastating social cataclysm--and given what followed that psychedelic decade, including rampant cocaine and heroin consumption and all attendant violence, he had been correct. The social devastation proved very much a cataclysm. Nor was the problem in any way limited to street drugs among the youth, but with a psychiatric and pharmaceutical establishment intently pumping drugs into society's mainstream, the ramifications were actually cultural.
His solution was a unique drug rehabilitation program that not only addressed what drugs spelled in terms of mental and spiritual debilitation, including scrambled thinking and diminished awareness, but further addressed the problem which led one to take drugs in the first place. For unless that problem was resolved, Mr. Hubbard discovered, the person is forever left with the original condition for which drugs were a "solution." Also unique to Mr. Hubbard's rehabilitation program, and particularly relevant when considering the influence of heroin and cocaine, was his means of eliminating withdrawal pains. Traditionally resolved by simply substituting one addiction for another, e.g., methadone for heroin, the agony of withdrawal had long stood in the way of rehabilitating hard-core addicts. Not, of course, that much had ever been done on behalf of the hard-core addict, for unlike the recreational drug abuser, the addict rarely had the means to pay for what passes for help in the typical drug treatment clinic. In either case, however, with Mr. Hubbard's combination of nutritional supplements and therapeutic drills and exercises, the nightmare of hard-core withdrawal is no more.
To date, L. Ron Hubbard's drug rehabilitation methods are employed in more than 70 nations around the world and have successfully freed more than 100,000 individuals from drug dependence. Mr. Hubbard's methods are further employed exclusively by the international drug rehabilitation network, Narconon.
"You may have noticed that society is rapidly going downhill. Inflation, lack of fuel and even war cast deep shadows over the world. And the most serious part of this is that drugs, both medical and street drugs, have disabled a majority of those who could have handled it, including the political leaders, and have even paralyzed the coming generations."
