    Don’t ‘say no to drugs’ in Germany! Rehab clinic masks illegal Scientology church

    RT News, July 23, 2016


    Ad stands for rehab facilities with the particular slogan ‘Say no to drugs – say yes to life’ in Germany are under serious suspicion of being nothing more than a Scientology recruitment scheme, police warn. The sect is illegal in Germany.

    The enigmatic group, which believes our human souls have alien beginnings, does not enjoy the same legal status everywhere. In the United States it boasts dozens of Hollywood A-listers among its members and biggest donors.

    Not so in Germany, where the religious sect has been deemed “unconstitutional” since 1997 by domestic security, despite its existence there since the 1970s. This has led to a proliferation of masquerading tactics.

    The group has already been found operating under different names in Germany, and according to the recent statement from the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, Hamburg residents are being warned about particular ad stands featuring the most common anti-drug slogan of all.

    The statement says the campaign is not linked to any drug rehab clinic or counseling service, but instead leads to a conversation with an agent of the Church of Scientology, as it tries to “win over new members.”

    The government body explains that “It is well known that the Scientology organization is observed by us, so it is unlikely that a single passerby would be interested if they openly used the ‘SO’ label." Hence the church uses many leaflets, the most common among them ‘The Truth About Drugs’, recognizable from its slogan and the black-and-green color scheme.

    It also warns people to steer clear of information booths the church is setting up this Saturday in Bergedorf, Hamburg. As with other leaflets in the campaign, it only gives a brief overview of the organization and encourages people to sign up. Back in 2011, Scientologists also used blogs and videos on social networks to promote their fake ‘Say no to drugs’ campaign.

    Scientology ally Drug Free America Foundation, Inc is actually just a rename of Straight, Inc. Straight was a tough-love juvenile reform company descended from the cult Synanon. They also have a lobby group Save Our Society From Drugs.

    No wonder they don't have a problem crawling into bed with Scientology front groups.

    Drug Free America isn't a Scientology group; they just work hand in hand with Scientology groups like Foundation for a Drug-Free World. Fanatic nutbars who should be in jail.
  7. TorontosRoot Member

    They are worse than scientology's front drug-free marshals/drug-free world/narconon!

    Why are they still open until 2018?!?!?!

    Interesting that they're using Narconon in the names.

    The CARF cert has been covered up by the map, but is still on the page:
  12. We inspected Narconon on the 15 August 2016 and the inspection was unannounced. Narconon is registered to provide accommodation with personal care for up to 16 students (adult service users). The purpose of the service is to provide a non-medical detoxification and rehabilitation programme for students who are addicted to alcohol or drugs. Students withdraw from drugs and then take part in a programme of modules with the intention of self-learning. The provider had developed an alternative nonmedical/medicated intervention, rehabilitation and care programme for a variety of legal and illegal drugs and alcohol withdrawal.

    Well shit. (Not that Narconon won't claim that their program has been approved by the Care Quality Commission.)

    They had to put on a play acting game to make it seem like everything was "good" OR they have somebody/a few people "in" on the UK Quality Care Commission to rig it on purpose before the report was submitted. Sabotage.
  16. DeathHamster Member

    And all of that applies only to "accommodation with personal care".

    Not to the Narconon program.
    Not to the Purification Rundown.
    Not to the medical safety of the customers.
  17. DeathHamster Member
    I wonder how much time Narconon had to prepare for the inspection?

    Less than 12 hours, how can they clean the place up if it's a filthy mess and RPFers or clients refuse to do it? Hahahhahaah

    Needs translation. Keep writing.

    Revealed: How thousands of London children are exposed to Scientology group in schools | London Evening Standard

    Tens of thousands of schoolchildren have been exposed to a Scientology organisation through drugs education presentations, the Standard has learned.


    An investigation found increasing numbers of pupils, some as young as 10, at primary and secondary schools have sat through lectures inspired by Scientology and its leader L Ron Hubbard.

    In the past year alone 35,000 children have taken part in the Narconon anti-drugs programme, including more than 16,000 in London.

    Recently it emerged two schools in Camden hosted Narconon talks.

    Narconon, which does not employ doctors, is funded and run by the Church of Scientology.


    Professor David Nutt, who chaired the government’s Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs until 2009, said: “We have known for years that Scientologists have been targeting schools through drugs education packages. They are the main provider of teaching aids to schools, as neither government nor local authorities put any money into this topic. It’s an outrage.”

    Professor David Touretzky of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, who has written extensively about Scientology and Narconon, said the organisation targets pupils “any chance they get”.

    He called Narconon “a money-making scam and a source of potential new Scientologists” adding: “The first step is to get people to see L Ron Hubbard as a benevolent authority figure instead of a sociopathic cult leader. The drug education programme is just about taking that first step.”

    Many schools are seemingly oblivious to the link between Narconon’s programme and Scientology.

    Michigan licensing just dropped Per Wickstrom's Narconon Freedom Center's Residential Detox from their list of programs. Normally it should have been fine until renewal in July.

    No new files added to their record yet.

    California's CHHS database added a new field for each location, "type_of_application", which is Licensed, Certified, or Licensed and Certified.

    Elevate Addiction Services - Santa Cruz (Redwood Cliffs):
    #1 Licensed and Certified
    #2 Licensed and Certified
    #3 Licensed and Certified

    Narconon Huntington Harbor House

    Narconon JLB Ranch

    Getting their licenses and certifications revoked would be grand.
  27. DeathHamster Member

    Knowing why some of their licenses have expired and then suddenly renewed months later would be a nice start.

    Trying to find out what they mean by certified is dead-end so far.
    That tab doesn't have anything useful. It's probably some fluffy crap like CARF certification.

    Here's something:
    Certification seems to only require filing the forms out.

    Here is/was the license requirements:

    Looked into a few of these websites and see Narconon Reviews has some complaints.

    Is there a IRS website to see how much revenue these quack rehabs are conning for? It's easy in Canada,
    if they are a registered non-profit charity to see their financials, but what about the USA?

    In the US, where they're registered as non-profits, they have to submit Form 990s, which show some of what they're up to. (Per Wickstrom plays games with his companies to avoid that.)

    Unfortunately, due to the filing lag, the most current ones are for 2014. I'm hoping that the new ones will be soon because 2015 should have been an interesting year.

    For California, start at Narconon Western US, and work down the three subsidiaries:

    Tax information in on the company, and license info is on the locations under the company.
