Scientology is a dangerous cult and civic authorities should not cooperate with them in any way!

Scientology's drug prevention program is bogus. Hence, why it has been banned by many schools.

It's extreme, but so are the potential dangers of addiction.
Scientologists have had numerous successes with getting and keeping addicts clean. But, they have also had numerous rumors of deaths from their programs.

Keep your hat on, I believe you. I also said ...and there have been numerous death rumors too.
I have met people who claim to have become clean by this method, but haven't met any who have died. Tho, I have heard enough, anecdotal yes but I believe genuine, people who have spoken of those they have known who have died as a result of these 'treatment' programs. Obviously this is bad and the unacceptability part is added to because they are not 'open' about these death risks,...and of course there is the whole indoctrination aspect.
To balance this out tho, I want to point out that Any drug detox holds risks, and fatalities are not unheard of.

I agree. At the end of the day it's all about money.
They want to establish themselves as a religion. In a way they are going the right way about it, as the established churches of Europe did in the past ...accumulate masses of wealth at the expense of the followers.
If they had any genuine altruism in their beliefs they would offer their 'cures' and 'auditing' free of charge to those in need, without having to pay the money back. Perhaps it's as well they don't tho.
Having said that, doctors and particularly drug companies are very money orientated too. The 'medical model' of health-care is still very much in predominance.

Oh, so the deaths are "rumors"?

Again, RUBBISH

Anecdotal accounts are useless with regard to quantified science. Hence why, Scientology's 'Clear Body Clear Mind(what scientology drug rehab is based upon) has nothing of the way of scientific data and just pages of initialed anecdotals

Funny that, after people that have died due to scientology/narCONon cant speak *after* dying

Again, anyone can make a claim of somethings efficiency. That is why there can never be SCIENCE in scientology

They blatantly lie! I think maybe you should do some research into the ongoing investigations involving fraud, multiple deaths, staff procuring sex for drugs at narCONon centres

I'd be interested what other "drug detox" involves poisonous amounts of niacin being administered in conjunction of sitting in a sauna for hours on end. I'd also be interested in links to "other" detox's deaths that can be attributable directly to them

I'm not actually disputing those deaths. I believe them, personally. I felt I had to say rumors as no official [legal] accusations have been made which makes it bordering on libel.
Deaths from detox do occur by all methods. Not a high percentage but certainly significant enough. Direct attributability is difficult as often the patient has many other contributing factors. For examples, some may be in a weakened state of health resulting in stroke, heart failure etc. Some may have immunity issues, multiple addictions or toxic reactions, etc.
I can't get this post to show up with the links I used. So, had to delete the links. You can search engine them yourself I'm sure. Psychology today was one website...

Again, do some objective research and see multiple lawsuits for multiple deaths at narCONon. I wont bother posting any more links, as I obviously don't even look at their contents
