In the previous section we asked "Does Narconon work?". This section considers an even more fundamental question: can Narconon work? The medical validity of Narconon's theories has been heavily criticised over the years by a variety of sources, with many of its views dismissed as being somewhere between pseudoscience and simple quackery. To answer this question properly, we need to dig a little deeper into the medical and scientific claims made by Narconon, and ask whether its originator, L. Ron Hubbard, was at all qualified to be dealing with drug rehabilitation.

  • L. Ron Hubbard and Medicine
    As with science, so with medicine - Hubbard was unqualified and profoundly ignorant of basic medical facts.
