Scientology boss admits connection to Narconon drug rehab

Yesterday, August 31, 2014, a prominent spokesperson for Scientology, Graeme Wilson, may have put his foot in mouth during an interview in Scotland yesterday.

Wilson admitted to the Herald Scotland reporter, Peter Swindon that Scientology’s “Truth About Drugs” campaign is a precursor to referring people to Scientology’s drug rehab, Narconon.

“Wilson said he would refer addicts in Scotland to Narconon, adding: "If somebody asked us if we know of any good rehabs we would definitely give them that as a referral.”

L. Ron Hubbard instructed and warned Scientologists that, “… it is our experience that interviews are better forgotten and that press releases should not be engaged upon and that reporters should not be granted interviews, whatever they promise.” – L. Ron Hubbard page 990 OEC Volume 7.

Narconon Director of Legal Affairs, Andre Ahern, swallowed his foot in an interview with CBC TV NEWS in Canada when he admitted, “…he is a Scientologist and that Narconon uses the teachings of Scientology in its program.”

Yesterday’s spin-doctoring attempt by Scientology spokesperson, Graeme Wilson, began when the Herald Scotland published a news story with headline: “Scientologists use anti-drugs campaign to target families - An anti-drugs campaign targeting Scotland is funded by the Church of Scientology, the Sunday Herald can reveal.”

(…)

“Dozens of volunteers distributed booklets which are said to be published by the "Foundation for a Drug-Free World", described in the literature as a "non-profit public benefit organisation headquartered in Los Angeles.

Facebook posts by supporters of the Scottish campaign said half a million leaflets were handed out in July and August.

The head of leading drugs charity Addiction, Andrew Horne, has voiced fears that the Scientology-linked literature could undermine other lifesaving work being done.

He said: "I just don't trust people that don't make themselves public.”

(…)

“Hannah claimed dozens of volunteers were approaching young children. He said: "It seemed fairly obvious they were targeting young people and even children who were wandering away from their parents. The whole thing left a bit of a bad taste. There was no attempt to make it clear it was connected to religion and that really bothered me."

Scientology boss then responds in another Herald Scotland story, “… we want to help.

Sunday 31 August 2014: “A leading member of the Church of Scientology has denied that an anti-drugs campaign targeting Scottish cities is aimed at recruiting people.”

(…)

“Wilson, who is originally from North Berwick, said: "We're not promoting Scientology. If people ask, of course we're happy to tell them where we're resourced from [SCIENTOLOGY], but the whole focus is drug education so it really doesn't come up." Hundreds of people in Glasgow and Edinburgh have been targeted by the Drug-Free World campaign.”

“However, Wilson was also keen to distance Drug-Free World from Narconon. He said: "This campaign itself is funded by the International Association of Scientologists. It's a fully secular campaign itself.”

Unfortunately, what is left out from the two Herald Scotland stories is the solid connection with all of the aforementioned Scientology entities. The International Association of Scientologists, Drug-Free World, and Narconon are all Scientology entities with a priority target of making money – huge sums with every Drug-Free World campaign.

The toll free number on the back of the Drug-Free World pamphlets, connects countless, unwary people directly to Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon. For a fee of $30,000.00 - $35,000.00, alcoholics and drug addicts are recruited to Narconon where the cult of Scientology indoctrination begins upon arrival. Many victims are kicked out of Narconon’s program, some have died inside the centers, and many die soon after leaving.

Graeme Wilson’s statement to the Herald Scotland that: “It's a fully secular campaign itself,” is a common contradiction when Scientology tries to distance itself from Narconon and other front group entities.

It has been investigated and proven that Narconon is Scientology, and the only secular aspect, is to hide the so-called, religious Scientology entity connection and present Narconon drug rehab to the ‘SECULAR’ community.

Although L. Ron Hubbard’s warns Scientologists NOT to talk to reporters or give interviews, Hubbard does instruct how to control people.

"THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM. You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them." - L. Ron Hubbard, lecture of June 1952.
