Delbert Cole, chairman of the Ponca tribe's business committee, said his tribe's objections to Narconon International's rehabilitation center north of Newkirk have nothing to do with competition for potential patients.

The Ponca facility is for Indians only, while Narconon International's center, located on the grounds of the old Chilocco Indian school, is open to all, Cole said.

Cole said the Ponca tribe, which has operated a substance abuse center for almost 20 years, is upset with Narconon Chilocco New Life Center because it has failed to live up to its lease agreement to adhere to all state, federal and Indian laws.
