Quack medical scams are epidemic around the world. Before handing one's money to any "drug treatment" company, do your homework and find out whether they are legitimate or not. Find out what people who have actually subjected themselves to the program have to say about it. Don't believe anything that the company says. Miracle claims are always hallmarks of financial frauds.

What follows is a redacted and edited email sent to the http://www.Crackpots.Org/ web site, a web site dedicated toward exposing the Scientology Corporation's fake "drug treatment" scam that the notorious Scientology Corporation calls "Narconon."
Crackpots receives emails like this two or three times a week, usually from Scientology victims seeking to recover the money that they were swindled out of once they learn that "Narconon" is actually a Scientology scam that does not work as claimed, a scam without evidence to back up the claims, sold to victims through lies and outright fraud.
Many victims file criminal charges against Scientology only to be told by law enforcement and health officials that such frauds are considered to be civil matters, not criminal, and as such those law enforcement and health regulatory agencies chartered to protect citizens from just such quack medical frauds and scams have abdicated their charters, leaving few victims able to sue the criminals to get their money back.
What keeps the Scientology crime syndicate in business is the lack of the Congressional funding needed to "roll up" the enterprise, something outlined in Lt. Ray Emmons' investigative summary when he was tasked to develop the operational plan to dismantle the Scientology criminal enterprise:
And so the crimes continue, victimizing people who mistakenly refrain from doing the homework before hand to discover what Scientology's "Narconon" is before hand, victims who are shocked and dismayed once they are subjected to Scientology's insane quack medical notions dreamed up by the drug-addled conman L. Ron Hubbard.
Once victims discover that "Narconon" is actually Scientology, they then do the research in to what it was that defrauded them, then the Crackpots web site hears their horror stories, some of which are so horrific and frightening that it's a wonder that Scientology's "Narconon" death rate is not much, much higher than it actually is.
After I read this letter I contacted the victim and asked for permission to share it with others and was granted permission. I have edited the text to correct some spelling and I have reformatted the letter so that it is easier to read than the original however I have not altered the content of the letter at all.
I think it's very courageous for the person to speak out, even if only through a letter to a web site, knowing the notorious history of retaliation and retribution that Scientology engages in when ever any of its victims speak out about what happened to them.
The opinions expressed here are those of their respective authors and only their opinions.
For background in to what this person experienced, check out:
-=- Begin redacted and edited letter -=-
I was in Narconon for 2 months. Believe me, it was well way enough for me.
My family wanted me to get help for my alcohol addiction, and they wanted a long term treatment center for me since 30 day programs in the past wasn't long enough for me.
[Scientology] told my family that there would be one on one counseling, they said there was a lake and some horses (lol) and, they said I could see my family after being there for a week. They also told us that a lot of graduates from Narconon stay and work for them.
This all seemed awesome and we were all excited for a new change and hope for me.
The day my family dropped me off was a day of hell, the day my life truly fell apart. I was put in what they called a detox for 3 days. I was in there with people that were coming off of everything. [Scientology] gave us vitamins  in detox, and some people needed more than that.
The day I got over into the program, I knew and felt like something just wasn't right. The second day I was there we had to go to these 8 hours a day class for 7 days a week.
I thought that I would be learning about drugs, something they told me and my family. Instead what I was learning just totally blew my mind. We would have to say "Do birds fly"  to someone else for hours and days, then after you pass that you would have to sit for 2 hours straight without moving with your eyes open.  If you moved in any kind of way they would flunk you and you would have to start all over.
Once you passed that you would have to do two hours of eyes closed then other days you would have to walk around in a room and for eight hours, I'm talking, "tell your twin to touch that wall."  It was totally crazy.
I would write and call my family often, trying to explain to them what the hell was going on but they just thought that I was making all this shit up just so I could get out.
The program costs 30,000 we gave them [Removed] up front. They set us up on a payment arrangement to take so much out of our checking account. They tried to take the full amount out at one time a few times while I was there.
I was waiting for the "one on one counseling," but there was none available there. The staff that worked there was all [Narconon] graduates, and were talking [sic]
Some were so new they graduated and then started work right away. 
While I was there at the palace (lol) that’s what I called it, I watched 15 staff relapse in their drug of choice.
Not to mention, they pay their staff minimum wage, and they have to live at Narconon for 3 months.
Anyway, I was asked to leave the program at 2 months, because they couldn't get money out of the checking account, probably because they went back on their word on the payment arrangement.
They offered me to do a workbook study to pay off what I owe them. I asked them how long that would take me to do that and they told me it would take over a year.
I don't say this too much, but I would rather be in jail than to be there. I told them "No thanks," I called my family up and told them what had happened. They were amazed on the shit that I told them.
My older sister in the meantime was doing research on Narconon and came down right away to get me.
[Scientology] are all about money. They don't care about anyone that goes into their program. They are not about to help anyone get off drugs.
I would love to go on a talk show someday and tell my story. There's a lot I'm leaving out but I just wanted to voice my word on this.
Someday I hope they go down. They don't deserve to be called a treatment center; they do deserve to be called a scam center.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Do your homework and research, then decide whether you want to hand your money to Scientology.
