13. Defendant, NO, is a corporate sham and illusion, is merely an adjunct, subsidiary, licensee and/or alter ego of Defendant, Nl, and is heavily controlled by Defendant, Nl.14. Defendant, Nl, is a corporate sham and illusion, is merely an adjunct, subsidiary, licensee and/or alter ego of Defendant, ABLE, and is heavily controlled by Defendant, ABLE.... Cut the line about Wooten, aka "Dr. Happy Hands".16. Defendants, NO, Nl and ABLE, all rely exclusively upon the written "technology" of L. Ron Hubbard (''Hubbard"), the founder of the Church of Scientology, to address the drug and alcohol rehabilitation needs of students enrolled in Narconon programs.17. This is despite the fact that Hubbard had no known training or education in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.18. Subsidiary programs like NO implement what they advertise as drug prevention and education programs, based upon the texts of Hubbard, and are forbidden to deviate from these texts. However, none of these programs incorporate known acceptable treatment for drug and/or alcohol addiction.19. In order to use the Hubbard technology, NO must pay a license fee to NI and agree to use the Hubbard technology in a manner that is heavily regulated by NI.20. Part of the Hubbard technology, as regulated by NI, includes the course materials and purification component used by NO to "rehabilitate" students. However, neither the materials nor the purification component are designed to advance alcohol and/or drug rehabilitation. Instead, the materials are comprised of eight different levels that are virtually identical to the course materials promoted by ABLE, none of which specifically address treatment for drug and/or alcohol addiction.21. The purification component of this treatment consists of "The Sauna Program," which is virtually identical to a required component of ABLE training for non-addiction individuals.22. Another significant portion of the program is devoted to requiring students to undergo various "training routines", or "TR's", that focus upon conditioning students to either give or receive orders. The courses are "self taught" by students and overseen by counselors, who have little or no training other than that offered by NO, NI and/or ABLE, in administering the course themselves.23. NO students receive no counseling or education in drug and/or alcohol rehabilitation per se, and therapeutic discussion of drugs and their effects among students and staff is actually discouraged. Instead, NO's proponents believe that strict adherence to the Hubbard technology will address the rehabilitation needs of its students. Nl routinely audits its subsidiaries to insure that the Hubbard technology is being zealously followed.... 26. The NO program operates under strict rules related to the discipline, structure, hierarchy, and training of ABLE and its subsidiaries, none of which are, within themselves, known treatments for drug and/or alcohol addictions. 27. Defendants, NO, Nl and ABLE, fraudulently misrepresented and falsely advertised the Narconon Program as one in which students suffering from alcohol and/or drug addiction would be provided substantive education and rehabilitation in the fields of drug and alcohol abuse. However, instead of providing drug rehabilitation, Defendants concealed, and continue to conceal, the Narconon Program's true relationship with ABLE, by teaching the Hubbard technology and not abuse related education.
VICARIOUS LIABILITY & CIVIL CONSPIRACY...60. Defendants, NO, Nl and ABLE, acted together in concert to unlawfully andtortuously operate a dangerous, unsafe and unsupervised drug and alcohol rehabilitation programat NO, as alleged within the First Cause of Action, supra....

Drug addiction there, isn't treated with drugs, but by teaching communication and life skills, according to Smith."First, realize what problem they were trying to solve by doing drugs or alcohol," said Smith.
