After three deaths within a nine month period at an Oklahoma drug treatment program, the former President of Narconon Arrowhead is speaking out for the first time about why he says he left the facility and the Chuch of Scientology. Lucas Catton was President of Narconon Arrowhead around two years. He says he worked at the facility for five years after completing the drug treatment program.
Catton says the courses that are taught at the Narconon Arrowhead drug rehab facility are similar to the courses that are taught in the Church of Scientology. Although Catton does not believe the facility should be shut down, he does think it should be forced into compliance. He also believes Narconon Arrowhead should be more open about its ties to the Church of Scientology.
Catton says most patients (who are called "students") arrive at Narconon Arrowhead, not knowing it is affiliated with the Chuch of Scientology.
