Scientology under fire for Narconon drug treatment program
Already shaken by a series of high-level defections, accounts of abuse among its staffers, and the high-profile breakup of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, the Church of Scientology now faces scrutiny over its controversial drug treatment program, Narconon. Four deaths at Narconon’s signature treatment facility in eastern Oklahoma have prompted local law enforcement and health officials to investigate the center and its program.
Here is the Church of Scientology's complete response (pdf). It describes former Narconon client David Love as having a criminal record. Love acknowledges being arrested, but says the charges were later discharged by the Canadian court after he completed specified court programs.
