Distributing Drug Rehab Booklet
Booklet on drug abuse available
A new and different look at drug abuse rehabilitation facilities is given by the booklet 'A Consumers Guide to Drug Abuse Rehabilitation in L. A. County' which is being distributed throughout L. A. County by Narconon, the controversial private non-profit group that handles drug abuse. The booklet provides an index of rehabilitation facilities in the county giving the individual who is seeking help pertinent data on each facilities philosophy, method, success rate, cooperation with other groups and funding.
Over 2000 of the booklets which list more than 90 facilities in the county are being distributed free to county education boards, government officials and schools.
Narconon, the controversial group distributing the booklet, handles drug abuse without the use of attack therapy, psychiatric intervention or substitute drug therapy such as methadone in working to prevent and reduce drug abuse and drug related crime.
The National President of Narconon, headquartered in L. A., stated "We feel the booklet is a valuable source of data to individuals wanting to find out what type of drug abuse rehabilitation facilities are available in the county. Before this booklet there just has not been any index of this type giving the individual an insight into the types and location of facilities in the county. I hope the booklet is not only circulated throughout the county but also in the schools as it is in the high school age groups that use of drugs often develops into addiction."
