Utvärderingen av Narconon

This report was written in May 1981 by Peter Gerdman, a social worker hired by Narconon to evaluate its Huddinge facility at Vårby Gård near Stockholm. On his behalf, Narconon staff interviewed persons who had entered the Narconon programme in 1977 to determine what their original problem had been and how they had fared since undergoing Narconon's therapy. The results were strikingly poor - only 23% had completed the programme, with only 6.6% saying that they had stayed totally drug free for one year afterwards. Narconon has, however, presented the results rather differently (see "Does Narconon Work? - Studies").

The report is currently available only in Swedish; an English translation is being prepared.
