Scientology going 'Ideal' with drug rehabs too, and will replace an ailing clinic - 2018-09-30
For a couple of years we've been keeping an eye on the ailing Narconon rehab in the Netherlands, which has served only three patients in two years. Rod Keller tells us that Scientology has plans for a new clinic there.
Joanna Kluessien retired as the Executive Director of Narconon Zutphen in July. The facility is located over 100 Km east of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. This Narconon's future has been in question since 2013 when the Dutch Inspectorate for Health Care (IGZ) put it on "enhanced supervision" following a finding that none of the staff had any medical training, and the patients were being put in danger with unscientific methods based on Scientology. The facility's finances have been unsteady since then and Kluessien's departure could have been the last straw.
Scientology is investing instead in what will be known as Narconon Netherlands, a new name and a new identity as an "Ideal" Narconon. Staff is being recruited to be trained at the Continental Narconon in Helsinge, Denmark. All positions are included, from Executive Director down to Estates, which handles sanitation and repairs.
