They are so desperate right now- digging up old baloney that went no where scientifically and since it won't impress any professionals!
Many studies, some with control groups, etc.,
Miller’s study found that the small research group did very well with their Narconon program -- 80% being drug abstinent, and although 30% had had criminal histories before Narconon, 0% did at the time of the survey.
“We only had about 20 students then,” says Patty, now Executive Director of Friends of Narconon, International, a drug education support group based in Pasadena, California, which provides drug ed videos to some 8,000 schools across the United States. “Mr. Miller studied the results on 10 of them, primarily teenagers, and found they were doing pretty damn well. Kids are hard to help, as they don’t have drug-free lives prior to addiction to compare their drug abused behavior to.” The New London program was actively supported, reports a March 7, 1978 article from The News of Niantic, Connecticut, by senior and other volunteer groups, providing furniture, curtains, helping with a newsletter, etc.
I was the ED NN CT. Patty O'Neill worked for me. I can attest these numbers were all fabricated.
The link to the studies mentioned there is ......... lolhttp://www.narconon.org/about-narconon/40-years-evidence-recovery.html
Thanks Patty. Welcome!!!!! How did they falsify the numbers?
I took some time to read through the document Narconon International put together and broke it down here:http://www.haveyoutoldall.com/narconon-proves-their-own-claims-fraudulent/

I knew the numbers were awful, I knew they wanted to show great results. Being a Scio I thought oh well, greatest good and all that and so just pulled those numbers right out of my ass. Consider this my confession. I personally fudged all the numbers because I knew it's what they wanted. There was no study. I just made them up.
