In the early '60s, Mr. Hubbard was one of the first to
see the long-term consequences of the accelerating drug culture. He responded
warmly to William Benitez's request for help with his fledgling Narconon
program in Arizona State Prison and continued to write up his observations on
the effects of drugs on the individual person, his body, and the society as a
| The Narconon program has from the beginning been founded
on key principles developed by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The
keynote is that an individual is responsible for his own condition and that
anyone can improve his condition if he is given a workable way to do so. It is
based on improved understanding of his fundamental nature: that man is
basically good and it is pain, suffering, and loss that lead him
The Narconon program from its inception promoted an
approach to rehabilitation without recourse to alternative drugs. This early
program did not, however, deal directly with withdrawal symptoms and
difficulties. In 1973, after Mr. Hubbard had conducted further research to aid
Narconon staff to help others through the difficulties of withdrawal discomfort
safely and with minimal discomfort, the Narconon program adopted these
procedures to include drug-free withdrawal, using vitamins and mineral
supplements along with special techniques to ease the mental and physical
| Another truly pioneering innovation researched by Mr.
Hubbard was adopted in 1978 known as the Narconon® New Life Detoxification
Program. This tissue-cleansing regimen of specific vitamin/mineral therapy with
cardiovascular exercise, intensive sweating in low heat saunas, adequate
replacement of fluids and oils, has become immensely valuable for reducing the
long-term physical and mental effects of drug residuals on people who have

or being alive without them. Drugs rob life of the senstions and joys which are
the only reason for living anyhow". --L. Ron Hubbard
Mr. Hubbard noted the scientific evidence behind the
accumulation of drug and other toxic residuals in the human body. He postulated
the influence that these psychoactive toxins might have subliminally and
overtly on the mind and person and developed a safe, healthy, and thorough
method of cleansing the human body of the actual drug residuals.
With this Narconon® New Life Detoxification Program students regularly
report a remarkable increase in clarity of thinking, peace of mind, and well
being. It also greatly reduces or eliminates cravings for drugs that stem from
hidden drug toxins.
More than three decades of scientific studies and
follow-up have validated the theory and practice of this remarkable procedure.
L. Ron Hubbard's innovations to the Narconon program
continued through the years, always designed to facilitate a stable, drug-free
life for individuals. Read more information
