Schools bar anti-drug program — Los Angeles Times (California)
Type: Press
Author(s): Duke Helfand, Cara Mia DiMassa
Source: Los Angeles Times (California)
Los Angeles school officials are warning campuses not to use a drug prevention program linked to the Church of Scientology while California's schools chief has ordered an investigation to determine whether the anti-drug presentations are scientifically sound and free from the religion's influence. The target of the district and state actions is Narconon, a drug prevention and rehabilitation program that bases its ideas partly on the research and controversial teachings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Narconon has conducted educational assemblies ...

Backers defend anti-drug program / School board is told the science is sound — San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Type: Press
Author(s): Heather Knight
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Supporters of an anti-drug program with ties to the Church of Scientology addressed the San Francisco Board of Education on Tuesday night in attempt to show the value of keeping the program intact in the city's public schools. Narconon Drug Prevention and Education, created by the late Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, has presented anti-drug lectures in San Francisco's public schools for 13 years. But after stories in The Chronicle raised questions about the science behind the teachings and the presence ...

Type: Press
Author(s): Nanette Asimov
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
School district officials in Los Angeles have ordered a review of an anti-drug program whose teachings are linked with the Church of Scientology and are warning teachers that its instruction "is not based on science." Los Angeles is the second district in the state to scrutinize Narconon Drug Prevention and Education, which reaches thousands of students in at least 20 California districts and has provided lectures in schools across the country for two decades. Earlier this month, San Francisco schools Superintendent ...

Open Forum // The results behind Narconon's 'Truth About Drugs' program — San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Type: Press
Author(s): Clark Carr
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Four of the 25 cities selected by federal Drug Czar John Walters as focal points for a national campaign to reduce demand for and abuse of drugs in the United States are in California. According to a chart on illicit drug use among the 25 cities nationwide (www.whitehousedrugpolicy.gov), San Francisco had the second highest rate of drug-related emergency-room admissions (8,575) and drug-related arrests (14,351). But one does not need to look at a chart. Walking down the street, stepping over homeless ...

Chronicle Editorials // Common sense prevails — San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Type: Press
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
THE CONSEQUENCES of illicit drugs are so dangerous and well- documented it's unnecessary – perhaps even foolish – to embellish on the inevitable outcomes for those reckless enough to abuse them. Drugs can cause immense physical, mental and emotional damage for users, and immeasurable suffering for families and friends, too. Clearly, the best defense against substance abuse is education and examples to illustrate the personal devastation. That's why the uproar over Narconon Drug Prevention and Education, the popular anti-drug program that ...

Probe of antidrug program ordered / State schools chief says he could bar Narconon teachings — San Francisco Chronicle (California)

State schools Superintendent Jack O'Connell said the investigation could lead to an order barring schools from using the program, called Narconon Drug Prevention and Education. The popular program, based in Hollywood, has provided antidrug instruction in schools around the country for more than two decades. Narconon ...

Narconon responds — San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Type: Press
Author(s): G. Megan Shields
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Narconon responds Editor – Your article on the Narconon drug rehabilitation and prevention program correctly describes certain components of this mainstream social-educational model ("Scientology linked to public schools," June 9). However, your interpretation and oversimplification of the science behind this program does addiction medicine a disservice. I was asked to be Narconon International Science Advisory Board medical director as a result of having personally treated thousands of people with the Hubbard body detoxification protocol. Literally thousands of enrolling Narconon clients have ...

Sabotaging drug 'education' in S.F. public schools — San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Type: Press
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Pseudoscience and misinformation plague many efforts to keep young people off drugs. These errors destroy our credibility with teens and sabotage drug-abuse prevention immensely. As Nanette Asimov documented in The Chronicle ("What Narconon tells students," June 9) our children hear outrageous ideas as early as the third grade. My personal favorite: Drugs will store in your fat cells forever but niacin and saunas will release their remnants as colored ooze. Programs that rely on lies such as these make me very ...

Schools put drug program on notice // S.F. tells lecturers linked to Scientology to fix inaccuracies — San Francisco Chronicle (California)

Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
A popular anti-drug program with ties to the Church of Scientology will be ousted after 13 years in the San Francisco schools unless it agrees to stop teaching what the district calls inaccurate and misleading information, Superintendent Arlene Ackerman said Wednesday. The district's ultimatum means that Narconon Drug Prevention & Education has until June 24 to revise parts of its curriculum, said Ackerman, whose health education staff no longer wants the program to make sweeping generalizations about all drugs or claim ...

As early as the third grade, students in S.F. and elsewhere are subtly introduced to church's concepts via anti-drug teachings A popular anti-drug program provided free to schools in San Francisco and elsewhere teaches concepts straight out of the Church of Scientology, including medical theories that some addiction experts described as "irresponsible" and "pseudoscience." As a result, students are being introduced to somebeliefs and methods of Scientology without their knowledge. Anyone listening to a classroom talk by Narconon Drug Prevention & ...

What Narconon tells students — San Francisco Chronicle (California)

Author(s): Nanette Asimov
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
Narconon's school program sends students a strong anti-drug message about alcohol, tobacco and marijuana in grades three to 12 and about harder drugs in the upper grades. The program's instructors tell kids that drugs are poison. But here are some other things they tell kids about addiction, which the medical experts interviewed by The Chronicle rejected as not scientifically based: – Drugs – including ecstasy, LSD and marijuana – accumulate indefinitely in body fat, where they cause recurring drug cravings for ...

Author(s): Don Lattin
Source: San Francisco Chronicle (California)
A former member and longtime critic of the Church of Scientology has been ordered by a Marin County judge to pay the church $500,000 for speaking out against the controversial religious movement. Superior Court Judge Lynn Duryee issued that order in a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Scientology defector Gerald Armstrong. The Church of Scientology had sought $10 million from Armstrong, who joined the church in 1969, left the fold in 1981 and later became one of the movement's harshest critics. He was ...
