Whereas, since its inception in Oklahoma, Narconon has salvaged the lives of more than 3,500 people who were addicted to drugs or alcohol who have now graduated the program, as well as delivered drug education and prevention services to more than 150,000 Oklahoma youth and young adults; and

Whereas, Narconon Arrowhead, provides 48 beds per year for indigent people, from which many Oklahoman’s have benefit by being able to participate in Narconon Arrowhead’s residential drug and alcohol treatment program; and

Whereas, Narconon Arrowhead serves the additional function of being the International Staff Training Center for the Narconon network’s 130 treatment and education centers in 40 countries; and

Whereas, through a partnership effort with the Eastern Oklahoma State College in McAlester, Narconon Arrowhead and Eastern Oklahoma State College staff have developed and deliver a Continuing Education Program specifically designed for professional counselors licensed by the State of Oklahoma;
