What really happens at a Scientology rehab? Nick Lister dishes on the Narconon experience - 2015-08-05
Hey, we're still recovering from last night's wild time in London. Thankfully, Aaron Smith-Levin has sent over a couple of new videos interview Nick Lister in their series, "Growing Up Scientology." We'll let Aaron introduce them...
In this first clip Nick talks about his time at Scientology's biggest drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead, located two hours east of Oklahoma City. When it's convenient, Scientology claims it has no relationship to or responsibility for the Narcnonon organization. At Scientology events, it's another story — leader David Miscavige openly talks about Narconon as a branch of the church that's intended to expand Scientology's influence.
As Tony has documented many times, Narconon doesn't actually deliver drug counseling, but instead puts its patients through Scientology drills — the same drills you get in the church itself. The rehab program is a sequence of three steps 1) Scientology's "purification rundown" 2) Scientology's communications drills called "Training Routines" and 3) basic Scientology auditing processes called "Objective Processing."
