Scientology’s “Drug Prevention” Programs Infiltrate Hungarian Schools

According to a new report, published by the HCLU’s Drugreporter on Monday, organisations backed by the Church of Scientology are infiltrating Hungarian schools, in order to increase the Church’s social influence.


The fight against drugs is a popular cause and an easy way to manipulate people. The Church of Scientology has created several organisations claiming to rehabilitate drug addicts or prevent drug use among young people. Narconon, a so-called “drug rehabilitation” program founded by Scientologists in the 60s, uses a pseudo-scientific method based on the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Its residential centres have been the location of several deaths, due to the intensive sauna and vitamin “detoxification” treatment undergone by their clients. Narconon has a very strong presence on the Internet, and their paid google ads help them to recruit thousands of drug-dependent people who are often unaware of the link to Scientology.
