Narconon "intel dump", evidence gathering list

Discussion in 'Narconon' started by tinfoilhatter, Mar 10, 2014.

    The American Society of Addiction Medicine has released a new definition of addiction, highlighting that it is a chronic brain disorder and not simply a behavioural problem involving too much alcohol, drugs, gambling or sex.

    Four years of work with 80 experts opened the door to ASAM’s first official position that outward behaviours are manifestations of an underlying disease.

    Short Definition of Addiction

    Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviours.

    Addiction is characterised by inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioural control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviours and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death.



    People targeted by a sociopath often respond with self-deprecating comments like “I was stupid”, “what was I thinking” of “I should’ve listened to my gut instinct”. But being involved with a sociopath is like being brainwashed. The sociopath’s superficial charm is usually the means by which s/he conditions people.

    That definition of addiction would explain why a lot of narCONon "students" stay on as underpaid, unqualified staff.

    Just a reminder that the re-branding of narconon is now fully underway, complete with literacy fail:

    A report on Narconon was written in Sacramento by Jim Esterbrook from the State Health Department back in the early 70s which may have led to this 1974 evaluation. Here's Mike McClaughry bragging about how the GO third partied Esterbrook out of the state.

    Makes you really want to find that initial report now :mad:

    This is from Tony Ortega today:

    ...many of you noticed that an attorney in Bloomington, Minnesota suddenly started advertising that he’s looking for plaintiffs to sue Narconon, and he’s even advertising on television nationally.

    Clark Carr - not dead yet...

    (PRWEB) February 17, 2015

    In early February, more than 600 professionals in the addiction treatment field gathered at the Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel to share their expertise. This was The Evolution of Addiction Treatment conference that offered six keynote addresses and dozens of informative workshops to attendees eager to share their different methodologies and learn from each other. On Saturday, the 7th of February, Narconon president Clark Carr was joined by Richard Lennox, PhD, and Marie Sternquist, both research scientists with Chestnut Health Systems of North Carolina, to present workshop attendees with key information related to the Narconon method of teaching recovering addicts ‘learning skills’ and also of instructing counselors in the same.

    Over the course of 90 minutes, Carr provided a cheerful hands-on education in how to help those in recovery improve their focus on the present moment (gather their wits, as you might say), a preliminary step before studying anything. Real-life demonstrations brought this and other practical learning tools to life. Then Carr started addressing what L. Ron Hubbard named “the barriers to study.” The Narconon program is based on the philosophy and works of Mr. Hubbard. From the mid-sixties forward, Hubbard dedicated much research to the problems of learning and how to help individual persons to overcome them.

    Newly published dox, survey responses, and PAGES! Oh, my!

    Written by Ann onMarch 7, 2015

    It’s been a while since new information has been added to the site, but we haven’t been slacking off completely.

    We have just added some important information to the site, which we’ve been working on for a while now. Many people have contacted us for advice on getting their loved one out of Narconon once they discover things about Narconon that they weren’t told by the salesperson. Others have posted similar requests to our sister forum, Reaching for the Tipping Point (which has a new look, by the way).

    We have completed a page that gives the same advice we’d offer anyone through email or on the forum, How to Get Someone Out of Narconon, Best Drug Rehab, or A Forever Recovery. We’ve also added a prominent link at the upper right hand side of every page to make this information easy to find by those who need it. We hope that if any of you are contacted about getting someone out of Narconon (or a Narconon-clone), that you will give the link to them, or just send them to the site where they’ll see the link at the top.

    In addition, we have also created a list of the lawyers who have been or are currently involved in legal actions against Narconon, on our new Attorneys list page. Each attorney has a page of their own, which has their contact information and a photo, a link to their their website (if available), and a link to their cases against Narconon. If there are any that we’ve missed, please let us know.

    Scientology’s IndieGoGo Campaign Raises No Money Whatsoever

    Scientology front group Foundation for a Drug Free World has been trying to raise money for their awards event “8th Annual Drug Free Heroes Awards Gala.” They have been using the crowdfunding site IndieGoGo to solicit contributions since January 20th, 2015, and with less than two days left in their campaign they have raised [drum roll] $0.

    Yeah, it appears that the re-branding of narconon to become the Foundation for a Drug Free World of The Americas has become a total fail.

    Will the deranged dwarf fire the marketing company and hire a new one? Or will the cult start its very own marketing agency?

    Ann has a very large quantity of news just posted at Reaching For The Tipping Point.

    Health Dept. Inspections, and more – Don’t Even Go There!

    Written by Ann on April 16, 2015

    I'll cover the first two entries and leave the rest for visits to the link.

    Calhoun County Health Dept. Inspections

    Some of the most alarming new additions to the site are the inspections by the Calhoun County Health Department in Michigan. These cover Narconon Freedom Center, A Forever Recovery, and Tranquility Detox. Also run by Per Wickstrom, Best Drug Rehab is not included in the inspections we received, but considering the conditions at A Forever Recovery and Tranquility Detox, we think we can safely say that Best Drug Rehab is not likely to be any better.

    Reading over these should be enough to deter anyone from going to these Narconons. Among the problems found are:
    • Bedbugs (Need we say more? Ok, if that’s not enough…)
    • Raw chicken being served
    • Sewage coming up in the sauna
    • Water backflow issues
    • Mouse droppings in food areas (Eek! We believe we’ve said enough now…)
    Read more of the Calhoun County Health Department Inspections here: Calhoun County Health Department Inspections

    Narconon in the Schools

    Narconon has long tried to promote themselves in the schools, as a way of gaining credibility with the public. The best known exposé of this was a series of articles by Nanette Asimov in the San Francisco Chronicle. Her articles resulted in a study by the California Department of Education, and recommendations to prohibit Narconon from teaching children their unscientific views on drug use, but there have been many other articles written throughout the years. Despite the number of times Narconon has been rejected (or ejected) from schools on a similar basis, they have continued to teach the same wrong information. We think this speaks more to an agenda than to a desire to educate.

    Read the articles linked from here: Narconon in the Schools.

    If you find or know of articles we haven’t included, please let us know and we’ll add them.
