Drug treatment centre linked to Scientology opens in Heathfield - 2015-09-18
A CONTROVERSIAL drug treatment centre – linked to the Church of Scientology – has opened in Heathfield.
The centre, run by Narconon, began welcoming the first patients to its new Maynards Green Road headquarters this week.
The group, which up until now has operated mainly out of the United States, bases its recovery programme on the teachings of scientology founder, L Ron Hubbard.
His method involves putting addicts through a programme of cold turkey, forcing them to sweat out toxins in sauna conditions and following the programme up with a course of vitamins.
