CARSON CITY — The governor’s office wants nothing to do with a Republican assemblywoman’s plan to have female inmates submit to a drug rehabilitation program developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, a spokesman said Friday.

Greg Bortolin, press secretary to Gov. Kenny Guinn, said the administration is “moving in another direction” in its inmate drug rehabilitation efforts.

He added that neither Corrections Director Jackie Crawford nor any members of her staff will take additional trips to an Ensenada, Mexico, prison to review the controversial drug rehabilitation program that uses sauna and massage treatment.

The Arizona state government rejected the program last year because of its $15,000-per-inmate cost and because program sponsors did not track participants once they left prison.

Crawford said there is merit to the jQuery(document).ready(function( $) { $.post( 'https://www.religionnewsblog.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php', {action: 'mts_view_count', id: '2370'}); });
