New Orleans, Louisiana Proclamation

New Orleans Louisiana Proclamation


City of New Orleans
Office of the Mayor


Moon Landrieu

Whereas, Narconon has been operating programs for eight years in community centers, penal institutions, half way houses, churches and schools in various locations throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico for the purpose of prevention of drug abuse and crime and rehabilitation of those who have become dependent upon drugs or alcohol, as well as academic failures and school “drop outs”; and

Whereas, Narconon has developed a method of withdrawing from heroin and other drug addicts without the use of substitute drugs, in a relatively painless manner; and

Whereas, the development of Narconon’s study technology holds great promise for stemming the failure and drop out rate in our public schools, which has become tragically epidemic; and

Whereas, Narconon Louisiana has been established in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Donaldsonville as a non-profit rehabilitation organization that has extended invitations to everyone to become trained in the Narconon methods to the end that we may eliminate these problems from our midst; and

Whereas, Narconon’s reputation of working well with governmental and private agencies is well established and their desire to share their technology with everyone who is addressing the problems inherent in education and rehabilitation is widely known;

Now, therefore, I, Moon Landrieu, Mayor of the City of New Orleans, do hereby proclaim January 12 through 18, 1975 as

Narconon week

and urge the citizens and officials of the City of New Orleans to become aware of the programs and training offered by Narconon Louisiana.

Given under my hand and the Seal of the City of New Orleans on this the 27th day of November, 1974


Moon Landrieu
