Drug Education and Drug Prevention

In the late 60's L. Ron Hubbard did extensive research into how drugs affect the being mentally and spiritually.

In an article called "Drug Addiction" he wrote:

"In the absence of workable psychotherapy wide drug addiction is inevitable. When a person is depressed or in pain and where he finds no physical relief from treatment, he will eventually discover for himself that drugs remove his symptoms. In almost all cases of psychosomatic pain, malaise or discomfort the person has sought some cure for the upset.

"When he at last finds that only drugs give him relief he will surrender to them and become dependent upon them often to the point of addiction.

"Years before had there been any other way out most people would have taken it. But when they are told there is no cure, that their pains are “imaginary,” life tends to become insupportable. They then can become chronic drug takers and are in danger of addiction.">>>

Scientology churches are very active in drug prevention and support the Narconon program which is based on the work L. Ron Hubbard did to help persons overcome their drug dependancy.
