"Narconon has a unique position in the rehabilitation field. It offers addicts a relatively painless drug-free withdrawal — something that most addicts and professionals consider impossible. It has developed effective programs at no cost to taxpayers, at a time when the [U.S.] governemnt has invested billions of dollars in experimental approaches that have not offered satisfactory solutions."

"I have reviewed and followed the growth of Narconon's program in Oklahoma since its inception in 1990. I have had the opportunity to speak with both recovering addicts and Narconon staff. The most remarkable thing about these encounters has been the overwhelming sense of hope, the certanity that the steps of the Narconon program can return addicts to stable and productive lives."

"I have been associated with the Narconon program for more than twenty years. As a medical doctor practicing a family clinic servicing a broad section of the public, I have seen the increase in persons who damaged themselves and the lives of those around them as a result of alcohol and other drug abuse.

"As a doctor it was evident to me that the long term physical, mental and emotional consequences of drug abuse had something to do with the residual effects of the drugs themselves. Yet customary medical procedures held no solutions to this problem of drug residuals.

"With the advent of the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program, I discovered that a solution was at hand. The common theme expressed by patients who completed it was that they were no longer encumbered by the toxins that were shutting off their lives."

— Megan Shields, M.D.
