Interesting that this page says this:

Quote
Niacin stimulates lipid mobilization by triggering the release of free fatty acids into the bloodstream. It has been demonstrated that, while free fatty acid levels drop initially after taking immediate-release niacin, they rise markedly within two hours and continue at high levels for some time. (Sustained-release niacin is not used, as it has been associated with liver dysfunction.)

If I remember correctly, this is the form of niacin that requires a prescription.  While this facility has these doctors (ahem), I wonder if the regular Narconon facilities are using this form.  If so, I think they would fall under a different regulation as far as the licensing agency in Georgia is concerned - I wonder about the other licensing agencies elsewhere.  If not, well, then, they've just admitted that the regular Narconons expose their clients to potential liver-dysfunction.

Do I hear ducks?

This page lists organizations that are viewed as questionable, and gives suggestions on how to tell which groups are reliable and which are not: http://www.quackwatch.org/04ConsumerEducation/nonrecorg.html

Scientology and Narconon, as well as its various other entities, use groups with legitimate-sounding names all the time.  It's important to investigate where you entrust something as important as your health.

You may not hear them, but they sure look to be all in-a-row there!

"When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before."
