Scientology-linked Narconon center in Quebec shut down for ‘dangerous practices’

The audio portion of this report can also be heard at the website of CBC Montreal.

Narconon treats drug addicts with the ‘purification treatments’ concocted by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Scientology’s medical claims are widely considered to be prime examples of quackery.

Narconon is one of several Scientology front groups. TIME magazine has referred to Narconon as a ‘classic vehicle for drawing addicts into the cult.’

Another Scientology front group, the ironically named Citizens Commission on Human Rights, is engaged in an ongoing hate campaign against psychiatry and psychiatrists.
