Locals upset as building work starts on Scientology-backed drug rehab centre - 2018-04-27
Narconon bills itself as a drug rehabilitation therapy linked to the Church of Scientology. It was confirmed at the start of this year that the centre was to open in Ballivor. The multi-million euro development will cater for 34 "students" and 18 staff.
According to its official website, Narconon "uses unique rehabilitation technology that gets to the problem at its source and provides a path for long-term success".
