WHEREAS, 25 years ago, inmate William Benitez founded the Narconon Program inside the walls of Arizona State Prison after reading about drug rehabilitation methods developed by American author L. Ron Hubbard and began the successful rehabilitation of himself and other inmates addicted to heroin and other drugs, including alcohol; and
WHEREAS, there are now 24 Narconon Centers located in the United States, Canada, Australia, Denmark, Germany, France, Holland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom treating thousands of individuals addicted to drugs every year; and
WHEREAS, Narconon is fighting the war on drugs on two fronts–through drug education/prevention presentations delivered in schools, juvenile facilities and community organizations, and through rehabilitating those who have become addicted to alcohol and other drugs; and
WHEREAS, Narconon uses the completely drug-free and effective rehabilitation program developed by L. Ron Hubbard and has a staff and numerous volunteers who have dedicated their lives to fighting the war on drugs by preventing future generations from becoming addicted and successfully treating those who need help today; and
WHEREAS, Narconon Centers around the world have saved thousands of lives and each day are saving thousands more.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, THAT I, BRIAN 1. SARAULT, MAYOR OF THE CITY OF PAWTUCKET, DO HEREBY PROCLAIM AUGUST 17, 1991 TO BE
IN THE CITY OF PAWTUCKET AND DO ENCOURAGE ALL OF OUR CITIZENS TO WORK AS NARCONON HAS DONE IN CREATING A MORE DRUG FREE WORLD FOR OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS.
