Scientology drug rehab policy: Get the sexual assaulter out of state before police arrive - 2015-11-22
In the many lawsuits filed against Scientology's drug rehab network Narconon in recent years, the allegation is often made that the facilities are not as safe as advertised. Not only have sexual assaults been reported, but some lawsuits have alleged that Narconon staff — who are often just recent "graduates" of the program themselves — offer drugs for sex in the supposedly drug-free facilities.
Way back in 1991, when Scientology was trying to get its new flagship operation going in Chilocco, Oklahoma (later moved to another part of the state and renamed Narconon Arrowhead, pictured above), the state's Board of Mental Health could see the danger of recent graduates being hired right after they themselves were drying out, and then giving each other unsupervised "touch assists," which essentially amounted to faith healing in the form of massage.
The practice of touch assists between male and female patients who are recovering drug addicts or alcoholics in private rooms renders the program unsafe in this respect.
