U.S. insurance companies are increasingly coming to recognize the Narconon program for its long-term success rate or, to state it more according to the "bottom line," for the low recidivism and drug reversion rate achieved by Narconon graduates. Because of this, health care funders are covering the unique Narconon program in steadily growing numbers.

 Err... I don,t think so. If I use my provider as an example,which by the way is one of the largest in the nation, that provider will NOT in fact cover zip or give ANY money for any service provided by this house of quackery (NarCONon International).

Catholic sisters in Holland are fundraising to help provide student scholarships at Narconon Zutphen.

Well, I guess we will just have to "Fact check" the above NarCONon International claim. I,being Catholic will ask the Archdiocese here in Atlanta if this is in fact true or if they can point me in the right direction to find those who could vet this statement. Are they talking about an order of nun,s within the Catholic church or some lay persons that are sisters (/^I^\)?

Perhaps the Catholic convent would be interested in knowing about "Laura", who died at Narconon Zutphen in 2007.

Splitting this into a thread of its own, since it has nothing to do with legislation in Oklahoma.
