Scientologists place a lot of stock in their church's drug-treatment program.

But three local addiction specialists said documentation presented to support the detoxification program created by church founder L. Ron Hubbard is full of unsubstantiated conclusions, faulty assumptions and poor methodology.

"The research design is very weak. They don't even follow basic scientific methodology," said Dr. Paul Updike, medical director for chemical dependency at Sisters Hospital. "There is absolutely no way you can draw a correlation from those studies to say they have any relevance to the treatment of chemical dependency."
