    the law has been voted and they have a little bit more than a year to comply with the new rules or else they have to shut down. Apparently one of those rules require them to hire a psychiatrist...lol

    Quick Google Translation with slight grammar corrections by myself (sorry if any of it is incorrect):

    Intoxicated by the Church of Scientology

    (Quebec) Since coming out of Narconon, David Edgar Love barely sleeps. He has flashbacks of traumatic experiences he says he lived while in the Scientology detox center in Trois-Rivieres, and sometimes he becomes so distressed that he loses his breath.

    In November, a doctor at the Cité de la Santé de Laval, diagnosed him with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Mr. Love now consults a psychiatrist in a hospital in Montreal which was recommended by Mike Kropveld, the director of Info-Cult, and he tries not to seem too sleepy to his new job.

    Seated in a small restaurant in a bleak corner of the district Lachine, Montreal, where he found two pieces and a half, Mr. Love, 57, recounts his experience with Narconon, where he has been a customer of December 2008 to May 2009 and used until the end of October.

    Revealed for the first time in The Sun, his testimony on the detoxification center in Quebec linked to the Church of Scientology adds to a series of disclosures that have shaken the religious organization around the world in recent months.

    Beside him, David Love has placed a briefcase full of documents on which it relied to file a complaint with the Commission on Human Rights and another to the Standards Commission's work, who are investigating his allegations.

    During the 11 months he spent at Narconon, Mr. Love says he was victim of harassment, threats and many other violations of his rights, in addition to not receiving a significant portion of his salary.

    In a letter dated December 21, 2009, the law firm representing Narconon Heenan Blakie, suggested to David Love in $2550.29, provided that inter alia undertakes not to deliver its story to the media. Mr. Love declined the offer.

    "They will not silence me," he said. "I have rights and I intend to use them. "

    The Sun has joined the telephone director of Narconon Trois-Rivieres, Marc Bernard, who declined to give his version of events. "I have nothing to say, I have no comment," he said. "No comment."

    Omerta

    Coming from British Columbia, David Love arrived at Narconon shortly before the holidays in 2008. He was addicted to methadone and cocaine and had decided to follow the rehabilitation program of rehab Trois-Rivieres, where he knew an employee.

    During the first weeks of treatment, Mr. Love said he was surprised by the code of silence that reigned at Narconon about Scientology. He remembers hearing a used interrupt the discussion of a client group to which he belonged and ordered: "You're not allowed to talk about Scientology while you're at Narconon."

    The employee would have further explained that Narconon would avoid the subject to avoid scaring clients, their parents or "sponsors" who pay more than $20,000 for treatment, followed by predominantly English-speaking United States and English Canada.

    On its website Quebec, Narconon is as a "program for non-profit rehabilitation and detoxification" and boasts to have 50 centers in 21 countries. It is nowhere mentioned that Narconon is part of the Church of Scientology.

    For Paul Schofield, who was a member of the Church of Scientology for over 20 years before becoming a "case supervisor" for Narconon centers in Sydney and Melbourne, and Director of Narconon for all Australia, there is no doubt that Narconon is a branch of the Church of Scientology.

    "Apart from the withdrawal part, all courses that you make Narconon are almost identical to the one you made to the church," he said. Except that if you do them at church, they will cost only a quarter or a third the price. "

    While he was a customer at Narconon, David Love says she was forced to memorize excerpts from books by Ron L. Hubbard, author of science fiction who founded the Church of Scientology and has written eight books on which the Narconon program is based.

    "Any book that could interfere with this process of alteration of the mind and brain washing is prohibited and will be confiscated," said David Love.

    In addition to reading the works of Hubbard, David Love was also regularly conduct "training exercises" prescribed by the grand master of Scientology.

    He remembers one of them who was to sit for long hours fixing another customer without saying a word and without moving. Or a similar exercise in which they asked him not to react during a continual bombing of insults.

    Purification Rundown
    The fifties also remember the year of the ashtray. "I was screaming at the ashtray: stand!" then "sit!" until he obeys himself, describes it. But since I could not find the right tone, I had to lift the ashtray myself again and again. "After all these training exercises," says Love, "I'm lucky not to have gone mad. "

    To help addicts overcome their addiction, Narconon also requires that they bind themselves to a severe regime of vitamins and sauna that Scientologists call the "Purification Program", also offered to the Church of Scientology of Quebec at cost $2,000.

    For two weeks, David Love said he had to spend almost four hours a day in a sauna and swallow large amounts of vitamins and minerals. He recalls having had inter alia to take a lot of niacin, a vitamin (B3) used to reduce cholesterol.

    In an interview with the Journal de Trois-Rivières July 17, 2004 and published on the website of the detoxification center, the director of Narconon Trois-Rivieres, Marc Bernard, described the virtues of niacin to expel drugs from fat cells.

    "The toxins are trapped in fatty tissues for several years," Mr. Bernard explained. "When released, this is what addicts call flashbacks."

    When asked about the practice, Dr. Lise Archibald Rehabilitation Center Ubald-Villeneuve in Quebec, told the Sun she had never read anything about the benefits of niacin for drug addicts.

    Specialist in Toxicology at the National Institute of Public Health of Quebec, the pharmacist Lyse Lefebvre either never heard that niacin could help fight against substance abuse. However it suggests that consuming too much vitamin B3 may cause digestive problems, aggravate asthma, cause some form of crisis arthritis and cause redness and itching.

    Health Canada recommends a maximum of 500 mg of niacin per day. Clients of Narconon and Scientology after the "Purification Program" to swallow up to 5000 mg per day, said David Love.

    "This regime of vitamins and sauna was far from pleasant for the clients of Narconon," recalls Love. "It was horrible. People were sick, vomiting and had diarrhea."

    "As a military air"
    During his rehabilitation, Mr. Love wanted to leave the detox center trifluvian to return to her family in British Columbia. But he says that Narconon had refused to give him his wallet and his identity papers. He had made the request more than once.

    Except in special cases, the Quebec law prohibits forcing drug addicts to continue treatment, which takes place on a voluntary basis.

    Mr. Love recalled that rather than give him his papers, he was instead sent to the "ethics officer" who made him stay longer.

    "Many students wanted and tried to leave," he said. Some tried walking along the road, but the ethics officer is called and a car is sent to the board and back into the buildings of Narconon. "

    David Love said he never saw a customer being bundled into a car. He argues that rather Narconon called the parents of a student or his sponsor and convinces him not to pay a bus ticket or plane.

    "In everyday life," says Love, "Narconon staff closely monitor the comings and goings of their customers. It's like a military area," he said. "There is security, they have radios. They will count every 20 minutes to know where you are. "

    From customers to employees
    Mr. Love is not the only customer to have worked at Narconon. About 40% of them subsequently become employees, indicated in May 2002 Devinder Luthra, then president of Narconon Canada, at a meeting of the Special Committee on the medical consumption of drugs or medicines in the House of Commons.

    When he was employed, David Love was responsible for contacting former clients of Narconon to compile statistics on the success or failure of the program. He said he received emails from many previous members who had relapsed and still need help, which did not appeared representative of the success rate of 70% which is Narconon boasts on its website.

    Mr. Love said he tried repeatedly to warn his superiors at Narconon Trois-Rivieres, who refused to change their practices.

    It is from this time that David Love said he realized that Narconon was a "hoax" in the service of the Church of Scientology. "Once I understood and I thought it was true," he wrote on a forum of Anonymous, an anti-Scientology movement that originated on the Internet. "My eyes were opened to the reality of the lies that I had died."

    From the day he resigned, November 3, Mr. Love said he received threats Sue Chubbs, the production director of Narconon.

    Supporting Document, David Love shows she has among others listed on his Facebook page the words Enemy and Fair Game. This means, in the jargon of Scientology, "he may be deprived of property or injured by any means and by any Scientologist."
