A Toronto mother is speaking out about a Quebec treatment facility she sent her drug-addicted son to, which turned out to be run by Scientologists.

"I feel fooled. I really thought they were going to be able to help me. And help him," said Yvonne Keller. "Instead, they just put this kid right back where he started from."

^David Love counters the above mentioned scientology/Narconon PR (many of which were very specific attacks on David Love and Yvonne Keller) with his own release:
Press Release: Narconon True Result Success Rate
Submitted by intelligence on Apr 11, 2012
http://www.wireservice.ca/index.php?mod ... y&sid=7923
The Canadian public must be aware of misleading and deceptive success rates at addiction rehab centers. The Narconon success rate has been a controversial issue for many years and is once again in recent news media reports and publications, questioning the credibility of these outlandish claims. There is simply no independent, verifiable information to be found that can establishe these high success rates of the patients who complete the Narconon rehab program. This fraud is being exposed and investigated by government and health authorities.

WireService.ca Press Release - On May 2, 2002, Brad Melnychuk, director of the Scientology organization, ABLE Canada, made some interesting statements to the Federal 37th PARLIAMENT, 1st SESSION, Special Committee on Non-Medical Use of Drugs, concerning the success rate of Narconon. Brad Melnychuk states as follows:
  • "The point being missed is that there are programs that do work--Narconon, for example. You may think I'm here just to promote my program. It happens to be a program I'm very familiar with, one that does in fact get results, so of course I will talk about it. I'm talking about it because of the results. For example, Narconon gets a 65% success rate of abstinence even at its worst. In fact, the average is 75%. The more experienced, larger, and well-staffed organizations get 90%. Now, when we're talking results, we are talking about being drug-free for life...tracking people for two years after they've completed the program."
Contradicting Melnychuk is Narconon Trois-Rivieres spokesperson, Scientologist, Andre Ahern, interviewed on CBC TV National, April 9, 2012, stating, "....he doesn't track what happens to most people after they leave the Trois-Rivières program."

In one 2009 meeting with Brad Melnychuk at Narconon Trois-Rivieres, in Quebec, Canada we discussed the success rate at Narconon and Brad agreed the rate was below 70% and he was concerned about the misleading advertising and promotions being presented to the public in brochures and web sites.

There is clear evidence that the success rate which Narconon uses to lure unsuspecting and vulnerable patients into their program, is misrepresented and far from the real truth. Governments and health authorities have been investigating these false claims for several months.

According to the Canada Competition Bureau website and the writer's interview with Federal investigators, misleading and false advertising is a very serious offence and states:
  • "The false or misleading representations and deceptive marketing practices provisions of the Competition Act contain a general prohibition against materially false or misleading representations. They also prohibit making performance representations which are not based on adequate and proper tests...The Competition Act provides criminal and civil regimes to address false or misleading representations. Under both regimes, the Act prohibits the making, or the permitting of the making, of a representation to the public, in any form whatever, that is false or misleading in a material respect."
To determine whether a representation is false or misleading, the courts consider the "general impression" it conveys, as well as its literal meaning. Under the criminal regime, certain practices are brought before the criminal courts, requiring proof of each element of the offence beyond a reasonable doubt. On summary conviction, the person is liable to a fine of up to $200,000 and/or imprisonment for up to one year. If convicted on indictment, the person is liable to a fine at the discretion of the court and/or imprisonment for up to 14 years.

Under the civil regime, certain practices may be brought before the Competition Tribunal, the Federal Court or the superior court of a province and require that each element of the conduct be proven on a balance of probabilities. The court may order a person to cease the activity, publish a notice and/or pay an administrative monetary penalty. On first occurrence, individuals are liable to penalties of up to $750,000 and corporations are liable to penalties of up to $10,000,000. For subsequent occurrences, the penalties increase to a maximum of $1,000,000 for individuals and $15,000,000 for corporations.

Not only are vulnerable addicts and their loved ones duped by inflated, misleading and false success, but also must be aware of the Narconon program health risks and dangers.

James J. Kenney, Ph.D., RD, of the National Council Against Health Fraud who said of the NarConon program "Health professionals who subject troubled people (many with psychiatric illnesses and / or severe emotional problems) to this unproven detoxification program are at best unethical and at worst guilty of health fraud."

If you are seeking help for your addiction to drugs or alcohol or seeking help for a loved one, do your research first. Google: Narconon Exposed. Talk to your own personal physician and be open and honest. Inform him that part of the Narconon Program is entering a Sauna at high temperatures for 5 hours every day for weeks on end, taking doses of Niacin as high as 2,600mg to 5,000mg in one single dose.

Narconon is a Scientology organization and has control over all the affairs of every Narconon and Narconon International. It is a convicted criminal organization that has established policies written by L. Ron Hubbard, that it is ok to lie if it furthers the interests of their group.
