Narconon works

  • Updated

Editor, The Tribune:

The reason the Church of Scientology supports the Narconon

New Life Center at Chilocco is that the Narconon program

works. The church and Narconon have taken over 100,000 people

off drugs. Someone wants to make this a crime.

L. Ron Hubbard, who developed the drug rehabilitation technology

used by Narconon, has received tens of thousands of awards

and recognitions for his work to handle the ravages of drugs

and better mankind.

Your recent (March 9-12) articles should not have attempted

to demean a man who has served his country admirably. Hubbard's

war record includes public records of his many medals which

includes the Purple Heart (Palm) leaf cluster.

Why the official attacks on the Narconon center at Chilocco?

State Rep. Jim Reese, who sits on the House Appropriations

Committee that funds drug rehabilitation programs, is himself

on the board of directors of another drug rehab program

in Oklahoma City (Alpha II).

The Appropriations Committee funds Reese's rehab facility

with some $300,000 a year and approved thousands of dollars

to the Department of Mental Health for its anti-Narconon

litigation. Reese has also introduced legislation designed

to attack Narconon, virtually admitting to the House that

that is its purpose.

The laws of Oklahoma contain provisions to protect citizens

from legislators who misuse the powers of their legislative

office. A member of the Legislature is legally bound to

disclose private interest in any bill before the House and

cannot vote on it. Did Reese disclose his private interest?

Narconon rehabilitates people, it has given them new life.

People who seek to kill workable programs should be investigated.
