The David Miscavige summons, and other dire news for Scientology's drug rehab network - 2014-05-26
We've been reporting on so many problems for Scientology's drug rehab network, Narconon, and they just seem to be getting worse and worse.
For decades, when Scientology itself came under fire for its alleged abuses, odd beliefs, and bullying tactics, it reflexively pointed to its Narconon network as proof that it did good works. "But we get people off drugs!" was the rallying cry that the controversial church could always fall back on.
But increasingly, in the past few years, it's the Narconon network that is getting Scientology more unwanted attention. The deceptions inherent in the rehab model are coming in for exposure in national media (last year's excellent Rock Center episode, for example), as well as in a deluge of lawsuits and government investigations.
