The City of Seaside California Issues a Proclamation to Narconon

WHEREAS, the Narconon Program is an International Network of Rehabilitation Centers with 120 Centers in over 44 countries and is a drug-free approach to rehabilitation.

WHEREAS, Narconon Vista Bay has three facilities serving Central and Northern California and has been named the best Narconon Center in the world two years in a row; and
WHEREAS, Narconon Vista Bay has been a huge contributor to our communities bringing forth outreach programs and activities, including the Drug Education Program, with visits to many schools in the Central Coast, including Monterey County; and

NOW, THEREFORE, 1, Ralph Rubio, Mayor of the City of Seaside, on behalf of the City Council, do hereby proclaim September as “Recovery Month” and award this Proclamation to Narconon Vista Bay for their contributions to the Central Coast.
