Is the State of Oklahoma, with its’ seemingly “turning a blind eye” attitude, in essence, allowing Narconon Arrowhead to continue training and exporting an “Industry of Death” to other regions in the USA and around the globe?
At 2:46 pm this afternoon, I received a text message confirming another patient at Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma has been removed for fear of not being cared for in a professional or safe manner. This follows four client deaths while in this Scientology Rehab center which according to many credible expert physicians in the field of addiction detoxification, the Narconon program is a pseudoscience treatment not scientifically recognized in the current medical literature.
Oklahoma District Attorney’s Office:
Following quote taken from website of Narconon International today – “Recent graduates from the training program at Narconon Arrowhead are now conducting highly successful drug rehabilitation programs in Switzerland, Italy, Sweden, Mexico, Colombia, Australia, Brazil, Taiwan, as well as across the United States.”
Other government jurisdictions have forced Narconon to immediately shut down and transfer all patients out of their facility.
Case in point was in a July 27, 2012 decision by the Quebec College of Physicians, banning the Medical Manager (Physician), of Narconon Trois-Rivieres from ever associating with Narconon again. Then (Trois-Rivières, April 17, 2012) – Marc Lacour, Director of Social Services for the Mauricie and Centre-du-Québec Health and Social Services Agency, gave a briefing about the certification of the Narconon Trois-Rivières center.

“Of the fifty-five criteria required for certification, forty-six were found to require various types of corrections and twenty-six of these criteria were deemed high-risk factors.” Mr. Lacour adds: “The recommendations are mainly related to the organization’s approach, which is not scientifically recognized in Quebec.”
On April 18, 2012, there was disturbing testimony from former Narconon employees, Émilie Marin, Sylvain Bérard, Julie Ann Pagé, Odette Poulin, and Sylvie Houde.
Original Article in French:
Reported from Paule Vermot Desroches of Trois-Rivières daily newspaper Le Nouvelliste – – “Sylvain Bérard, the Ethics Officer, said that Narconon had already been experiencing financial problems for some time, to such an extent that, in recent months, the organization had even been admitting clients with more serious problems of a psychiatric nature.” – – “Some of these cases weren’t admissible to the program because it requires cutting off their medication. But the administration chose to keep them anyway. There were several instances of attempted suicide during the past few months. By law, immediate medical assistance should have been provided, but management decided to keep these persons without calling for an ambulance,” says the former employee.
With another patient death inside Narconon Arrowhead Training Center this month, the center remains in business and is continuing to train more recent graduates of their program to work for this Scientology entity.
The Governor of the great State of Oklahoma, Mary Fallin, is working hard for constituents as stated in her 2011 State of the State Address.
– This is Oklahoma’s roadmap to prosperity:
“That roadmap begins with one goal: to create the very best business climate to retain and expand jobs and investments in Oklahoma. Our actions must send a signal to the rest of the nation: that Oklahoma is ready and open for business.”
“And I told him then: you’re darn right. And you had better watch out because Oklahoma is on the move, and we are dead serious about building a state that’s pro-business, pro-growth and committed to creating more and better jobs for our citizens.”
Most notable, Governor Mary Fallin states:
“We’ve talked now about the health of our economy; it is important that we also turn our attention to the health and welfare of our citizens.”
“Studies now rank Oklahoma 46th in the nation for the health of our citizens. That ranking is unacceptable, and comes hand in hand with lost workforce productivity, hundreds of millions of dollars in medical bills, and thousands of preventable deaths.”
“For Oklahoma to move forward it must get healthier. We can do that by increasing access to affordable health care through free market initiatives, but also by encouraging personal responsibility. These changes can and should come from the people of our state, not Washington.”
Also, Governor Mary Fallin proudly announced “Certification” issues:
“Currently, over 900 private businesses have become “certified.” And I’m excited to see our healthy living initiatives grow to include the Certified Healthy Schools and Certified Healthy Communities programs.
“We’re also asking our citizens to take responsibility for their lifestyles and their wellbeing. It’s no secret that many Oklahomans struggle with addiction issues that can lead to incarceration. As a result, Oklahoma is one of the highest rated states in the nation for female incarceration.”
“As Oklahomans, we must always place a priority on protecting our citizens and keeping our streets safe.”
“That’s why I’m continuing to offer my full support to programs like “Women in Recovery” and other initiatives that address substance abuse, prevent incarceration, and allow more families to stay together. By fighting the hold that substance abuse has on our communities, we can make Oklahoma healthier and safer while working towards reducing our incarceration rates.”
Although many citizens of Oklahoma support Governor Mary Fallin’s agenda, recent events suggest many suffering addicts are falling through the cracks in Oklahoma’s Scientology Rehab center, Narconon Arrowhead. In effect, this training center in is exporting a dangerous product from Oklahoma – – a product which is presented as scientific, but does not adhere to a valid scientific method, lacks supporting evidence or plausibility, and cannot be reliably tested. Pseudoscience is often characterized by the use of vague, exaggerated or improvable claims.
In Governor Mary Fallin’s State of the State 2012 adrress, she states:
“This year, we can do even more. My budget reflects a financial commitment to alternative sentencing for non-violent offenders with substance abuse issues, as well to the “crisis centers” provided by the Department of Mental Health, which offer help and hope to Oklahomans struggling from addiction or other mental health issues.”
“These initiatives are smart, effective at reducing repeat offenses, and will save the state money by treating addicts and helping them to once again become productive citizens, parents and taxpayers.”
The four deaths inside Oklahoma’s Scientology Rehab center are unacceptable to a growing number of the Governor’s constituents, and most certainly should be addressed forthwith to prevent more pain and suffering within this great State and prevent the export of death to other States and Countries.
