PONCA CITY - The state of Oklahoma is asking a Kay County district judge to shut down Narconon Chilocco New Life Center, claiming the drug and alcohol treatment center is unregulated and dangerous.

Guy Hurst, an assistant state attorney general, said the state wants to stop Narconon's "outrageous conduct and stop it now. " Narconon's lawyers argue the state lacks jurisdiction because the center, north of Newkirk, is on Indian land.

Harry Woods Jr. of Oklahoma City said Indian tribes sorely need alcohol treatment centers, citing studies that showed a 70 percent addiction rate among Indians, and that afflicted tribal members are dying for lack of available programs.
