All technical treatment modalities of the Narconon program, which the cult claims are non-religious, are sold in Scientology organizations as part of their regular religious curriculum they call their Bridge to Total Freedom.
Of particular concern to SPDL is Narconon’s inclusion of the Ups and Downs Course, which is Scientology’s basic indoctrination in the SP doctrine.
The Steps of the Narconon Program
The Narconon program, tested in the fire of three decades of experience, charts the step-by-step recovery of self-control for the addict. The Narconon program is done in the following sequence:
Step One: Drug-Free Withdrawal
Certain drugs such as heroin and alcohol cannot normally be discontinued without considerable physical discomfort. With prior medical evaluation and approval, a Narconon facility provides a safe, 24-hour care procedure.Since its beginnings in the cellblocks of Arizona State Prison, the Narconon program has championed rehabilitation without resort to alternative drugs. However, the early program established by William Benitez did not deal directly with the traumatic throes of drug withdrawal.In response to this need, L. Ron Hubbard researched and developed methods to help addicts through the anguish of withdrawal without the use of potentially addictive drugs. In 1973, Narconon staff adopted this “drug-free withdrawal” procedure, using vitamin and mineral supplements along with special techniques to ease the mental and physical symptoms.
Step Two: Narconon Therapeutic TRs Course
“TRs” are training routines. This course is comprised of drills and other practical steps that enable students to improve their ability to confront situations in life, to communicate and to resolve problems through communication. Narconon students study with the help of a Supervisor who assists them through their courses.
Step Three: The Narconon New Life Detoxification Program
This step of the program removes drug residues and other toxic substances from the body. These residues remain locked in fatty tissues of the body and can be released into the blood stream years after the person has stopped taking drugs.
The residues can cause cravings for more drugs and thus need to be eliminated from the body. This is accomplished through an exact regimen of exercise, sauna and nutritional supplements, ridding the fatty tissues in the body of drug residues.
The Narconon New Life Detoxification program utilizes sweating in a dry sauna to eliminate drug residues from the body.
Step Four: Life Improvement Courses1
A series of Narconon Program life improvement courses are studied to put the individual back in control of his or her life.
A. The Narconon Program Learning Improvement Course gives the student the ability to study and retain knowledge along with the ability to recognize and overcome barriers to study and learn. The student learns data on the three barriers to study.
He learns how to fully understand a word by searching in a dictionary so that it is fully understood, how to do demonstrations of concepts so he can easily grasp them and how to spot and handle any difficulties in his study.
It is a course that enables students to overcome barriers to study and improve their learning skills, comprehension and ability to apply what they study on the following steps of their lives.
B. The Narconon Program Perception and Communication Course gives the student the ability to get into full communication with others and his environment. The student really polishes up his communication skills by redoing the eight Training Routines and then does a series of new exercises which fully extroverts the student and gets his attention off of himself and onto the environment. This greatly raises perception and ability to handle the environment and control over his life. The student also helps another student do the exercises. He takes responsability for helping another, which increases his sense of responsibility and his ability to handle life and help others.
C. The Narconon Program Ups and Downs in Life Course gives the student the ability to spot and handle those influences in his environment that would cause him to lose any gains he has made.2
He learns the characteristics of the social personality as well as those of the anti-social personality so that he can spot the difference and make an educated decision on better choose his friends and associates. Completing this course makes the student less susceptible to those who would influence him to revert to drugs.
D. The Narconon Program Personal Values and Integrity Course gives the student the data he needs to improve his survival potential. It teaches the student the eight survival dynamics, gives him valuable knowledge about personal ethics, honesty and integrity and shows him how to correct contra-survival behavior by ridding himself of past harmful deeds.
E. The Narconon Program Changing Conditions in Life Course gives the student the exact step-by-step technology he needs to improve his life. This ethics technology was developed by L. Ron Hubbard and covers exactly how to apply these steps to improve conditions in life. It also teaches the student how to repair previous bad conditions and how he can apply this knowledge and keep winning.
F. The Narconon Program THE WAY TO HAPPINESS® Course teaches the student a non-sectarian moral code which is a guide to living a happy life based on the book “The Way to Happiness TM”.

If what is attributed to Louis Farrakhan on his site is accurate, his “God Will Send Saviors” speech is an alarmingly grim application of Scientology’s SP doctrine to Caucasians. Caucasians should be alerted that the application of the SP doctrine is a condition of war, that Hubbard called fair game. I am posting the entire article in the public interest.
Everyone who applies the SP doctrine has his or her SPs. As ridiculous as it is, Farrakhan’s SPs are the Caucasians. The doctrine is sick, no matter who applies it and to whom. Hubbard was the sociopath in this paradigm, and not the class he labeled.
Minister Louis Farrakhan
The Lawful Captive Shall Be Delivered
By the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
Updated May 1, 2011 – 12:45:52 PM[Editor’s note: The following article is the third installment of edited excerpts from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan’s keynote address titled “God Will Send Saviours” which he delivered on the occasion of Saviours’ Day held Sunday, February 27, 2011 at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. Click here to order this powerful message in its entirety on CD and DVD.] In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful.Whether you know it or not, this is The Time of War. Black man and woman of America, study the Book of Joel, Chapter 3, because this scripture is really about you, the real “Children of Israel.” It is what has been done to us—that you are willing to forgive, and even to forget after you know—which is bringing on The War of Armageddon.Soon, and very soon, even our blood will be running in the streets. You will call for the end of a world like this.
The ‘lawful captives,’ prey of a wicked oppressor
“Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, and shall the lawful captive be delivered?” (Isaiah 49: 24) What is a “prey”? It is an animal that is hunted and killed by another for food; a “prey” is also a person that is easily injured or taken advantage of.
The Black man and woman of America are the prey in the hands of our wicked oppressors, and now we have become “lawful captives.” You, Black man and woman of America: You are the “prey” in the hands of your wicked enemies. You thought that the 13th Amendment ended “slavery,” but the wording was so deceitful: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”
Anything you do today, they love to call it a “felony”; then they can enslave you lawfully, because you are a criminal. Isn’t that something? Then, in the so-called Reconstruction Era, they quickly set up the Jim Crow laws, making nearly everything we do, or think of doing, a “crime.” They fill the jails and the prisons with us, and then lease us back out to private industry to build the roads, the bridges, the canals, the railroads: Back in slavery again!
The 14th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States made us “lawful captives,” for it states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” They declared us to be “citizens” without the rights of a citizen. And whether you want to believe it or not, you’re still in that ugly position today. They call us “citizens” mockingly. But if you had the rights of citizens, there would be peace in The Valley.
Foolish men and women, who think that because you have money that you’re “free,” who think that because you can put “bling-bling” around your silly neck, diamonds on your wrist, that you’re “free”! You think because you can throw a ball in a hoop, and play great football, that you’re free! You’re just a lawful captive.
Remember The Words of Elijah Muhammad
Wake up Black man and woman, your time of deliverance has come! This people who refuse to give us justice, or let us go and give us a proper sendoff; who, after we built the country, after our hands picked the cotton that made the South rich and fueled the Industrial Revolution in the North, and we fought in all their wars: Who are these people to treat a people like this? It is shameful.
Nevertheless, Allah (God) is fighting now to deliver us in the exact manner that He said He would through the mouth of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Remember his words from the book The Fall of America; that God is going to use the Four Great Judgments of rain, hail, snow and earthquakes: “The Four great judgments that Almighty Allah (God) is bringing upon America are rain, hail, snow and earthquakes… The forces of nature are great weapons as we see them in play upon America… What can you do with a God like that?” This is taking place not only in America, but throughout the world!
In the beginning of this year we have witnessed some of the severest snow in recorded history, and the news called it “Snowmageddon”—a take-off on “Armageddon.” Elijah Muhammad also wrote: “Snow is of the most dreaded plague…it destroys your highways, your cities; your concrete and gravel in towns and cities. It puts a great burden of expense on the cities.” Chicago is already broke, but this winter has sunk the treasuries. Too much snow, you can’t fly your planes! Too much snow, your tractors can’t move; your tanks can’t move! The Bible teaches that God treasured up snow in the North to use it “The Great Day of Battle,” and here comes the snow!
In 2010, more people were killed worldwide by natural disasters than were killed in terrorist attacks in the past 40 years combined! An Associated Press article stated that 2010 was “the year the Earth struck back.” Those of you who read the Holy Qur’an: Read it again. But don’t read it “just to read,” read it because it is a Book that describes what goes on right up to The Day of Judgment. The Qur’an speaks of calamity after calamity, until the enemy is laid low, so now the oceans are rising; and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said he would build nothing on the East coast or the West coast, even in the South because soon the waters will over-flood. Yes, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said the people would be pushed more toward the center of the country.
Last Saviours’ Day, February 28, 2010, at the end of my message to the Believers and the world, I warned the world to “watch the weather” as a sign that Allah would back my words from Him and my father, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. And according to the weather experts, 2010 was considered one of the worst years for severe weather in recorded history.
And the way this year has begun, you have seen nothing yet.
The Reactive Minds of Sociopaths
Nearly a century after the “Slavery Problem” was put on Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President called into his office a delegation of five Washington preachers who were former slaves. And Lincoln said, quote: “…You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. …Your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living amongst us, while our race suffers from your presence. …If this is admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated.” This delegation listened intently to the White Separatist President, but they chose to remain in America to try to achieve the promise they saw in the Emancipation Proclamation.
Even after the horrors of slavery, the great leaders of our people challenged the president and those who advocated our separation as to why we should be expected to leave! Because they knew just how much sweat, blood and tears Black people had expended to make America the leader among the nations of the world. Frederick Douglass, a great champion of our right to remain in America, said: “For 228 years has the colored man toiled over the soil of America, under a burning sun and a driver’s lash—plowing, planting, reaping, that white men might roll in ease, their hands unhardened by labor, and their brows unmoistened by the waters of genial toil; and now that the moral sense of mankind is beginning to revolt at this system of foul treachery and cruel wrong, and is demanding its overthrow, the mean and cowardly oppressor is meditating plans to expel the colored man entirely from the country. Shame upon the guilty wretches that dare propose, and all that countenance such a proposition. We live here—have lived here—have a right to live here, and mean to live here.”
That speech is the sentiment of most; and it is not a “wrong” sentiment, because you are justified by knowing what we gave to America to want to be here! But I ask you this: What do you know about prophecy? Why do you think even to go to a toilet with them, you had to die? Why do you think that after giving them all that you have you’re still suffering in the streets of America?
It is because you don’t know The Time; and therefore, you don’t know what should be done. And in truth, you really don’t know your oppressor.
Have you ever noticed why none of our organizations really reach what they’re supposed to reach? They start, they build up, they empty out; and if you’re still lucky, they come back again—but then they empty out again? Well, what’s wrong with us? What’s wrong in the church that we’re talking about “demons” outside, and the demons that are wrecking the church, the hypocrites wrecking the mosque, are on the inside? It’s a sickness that’s in us. If you ask yourself, in all the years that we’ve been around looking at the suffering of our people, what is it about us that we can’t seem to get together and agree on anything and move forward? And if we do agree on something, and someone gets a “big name” out of the something we agree on, envy comes up, and we break the organization? Well let’s go to the root of it, because the sickness is not somewhere else! It’s right in our minds.
In Scientology, they talk about the type of people who are called “Sociopaths.” The Scientologists believe that a “Sociopath” is a person who has a Suppressive Personality; and once you’ve come under that type of person, you become a Potential Trouble Source. Scientologists also talk of the “Reactive Mind,” and what is considered as “enemies” within the Reactive Mind, called “engrams” (demons). And it is from the Reactive Mind of The Enemy who imposes upon us their Sociopathic Tendencies that now we are Potential Trouble Sources for ourselves and others.
In my study of “Sociopaths,” I learned that these are persons manifesting anti-social behavior or character traits. I said to some of those in Scientology that were sharing their knowledge with me: “You know, we have been living under White people for at least 4,000 years since they emerged from the hillsides and caves of Europe. I am looking at the Caucasian personality as that of a ‘sociopath.’” According to the Scientologists, a “sociopath” is a “dangerous person” to organization. And when you find these people you have to expel them from any organization, because a sociopath is not governed by laws that keep order in a society, nor can they be trusted among groups of people who share one common cause. For if such a person gets into leadership, that person will only be a Suppressive Personality: A cruel, exploitative, brutal personality.
I say, dear Caucasian people, that if you were, by nature, “social beings,” you would have manifested the qualities that produce harmony in societal relationships. But you have manifested a personality disorder that is against the laws of a genuine society.
The Caucasian may have developed some semblance of a society for their people, but what they’ve developed for the benefit of their people never applied to us. Master Fard Muhammad said to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad: “Cast the rotten apple out quick!”—He didn’t say try to coddle somebody that’s rotten! If you leave a rotten person in your society, after a while the whole bunch will become rotten! The whole church will become rotten, the mosque will become rotten, the organization will become rotten because you saw a rotten apple, but you didn’t have the courage to cast it out! This is why Master Fard Muhammad asked the question: “Why isn’t the Devil settled on the Best Part of the Planet Earth?” Answer: “Because knowing that he was wicked, and there would not be any peace among them, [we] put him out!” And that is why today, Caucasian people, you will be put out from all over the Earth if you don’t make a change.
But so will you, Black people, because no one is interested in you with this savage behavior that we display! We are Trouble Sources! Wherever we are, we make trouble; if no trouble is there, we’ll create it! We have become “little devils,” and we are now prone to wickedness under the Reactive Mind of our Sociopathic slave master.
A “sociopath” is a sick dude! There’s nothing you can do to correct them; they refuse to even admit that they are wrong! And even when I face some members of the Jewish community, and some Whites, with clear truth, they stand in my face knowing that I’m telling the truth, and deny. That is why Jesus said: “I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.” (John 8:37). These people take their wrong, and put it on me.
They are the haters, not I. They are the real anti-Semites, not I. They are the demons, not I. They are the Satan, not I. I am here to uncover and expose Satan and become an Instrument of God to end their world!
Warning to America: Stay out of Libya
There is trouble that is going on in Libya and in the Middle East. I don’t know what’s going on in Libya because I haven’t been there in a while, but Brother Muammar Gadhafi has always been my friend. People tell me that I should distance myself from my brother, but understand: I am not a punktified Negro.
The last time I sat with my brother, Colonel Muammar Gadhafi, I told him, “Brother Gadhafi, America will never forgive you for what you’ve done. And they’ll come among you only to destroy you and the Revolution that you’ve brought into being.” He patted me on my leg as if to say, “I know, Brother.” He didn’t say a word, he just patted my leg. He didn’t have a problem until he let them in. I was in Iraq three days before the bombs fell in 1991, and there were Muslim Sunni mosques, Shia mosques; there were Christian churches and Jewish temples and synagogues, and even under Saddam Hussein there was peace among them. But when America went in under the guise that he had “weapons of mass destruction,” did they find any? No! So what was “Operation Shock and Awe” about?
You want to bring Gadhafi before the International Criminal Court? What about George Bush? What about Donald Rumsfeld? What about a government that lied to the American people, and caused the lives of hundreds of thousands to be lost? They need to put America out of Iraq, out of Afghanistan, because the trouble didn’t begin until the Trouble Maker came in.
President Obama, if you allow the Zionists to push you to mount a military offensive against Gadhafi, and you go in and kill him and kill his sons, as the United States government did with Saddam Hussein and his sons, I am warning you: This is a Libyan problem.
Let the Libyans solve their problem among themselves.
‘Sedition’ and ‘Treason’: False Charges against God’s Servant
What is “Sedition”? It is “actions or words intended to incite rebellion against government authority.” I can’t tell Black people to fight a war that is Israel’s war! What kind of leader will you be, or should I be, to allow these babies—Black, White and Brown—to fight Israel’s war because Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America, and her banking system?
What is “Treason”? It is “the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign, or, overthrow the government.” I’m not guilty of that! But some are planning that right now.
These are my words for our brother president, Barack Obama: In 1942, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad was sent to prison because President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued an Executive Order to take him off the streets when America was prosecuting a war, and America needed some Black bodies to go and fight a war even though there was no benefit for us in fighting such a war. And now, the Zionists are pushing President Obama to go to war with Iran over some suspected nuclear power that the Israelis have that Iran does not have!
When Carol Moseley Braun was a U.S. Senator, she came and had dinner with me one day. We were talking about things, and I remember how these words rolled out of her mouth: “But you know, Minister, they can arrest you for treason.” I said, “Oh well…”
Do you think that I should stand by quiet if Israel attacks Iran? America is going to come into it, so that means they’re calling us, aged 35-50! The United States government will tell us, “We’ve got trouble over there….your country needs you!” Now you need us? But when we needed a job, we didn’t see one! We need justice, we don’t have any! You’re killing our people in the streets, what about that? You’re taxing the hell out of us; we’re losing our homes because you tricked us! Where’s any relief for us? “Well, don’t worry … just fight this war. And when it’s over, things are gonna get better for you!”
Do you think that they’re afraid of my voice? Yes they are! I don’t have any guns. What I have is something in my mouth that’s more powerful than guns! While most of you with “guns” can’t shoot straight anyway, with The Truth that I speak, I don’t miss a soul! Allah’s Truth finds you wherever you are! If America goes to war, President Obama, like President Roosevelt, may be forced to sign an Executive Order that he’s not fully in agreement with, to take Farrakhan off the streets; and charge him with “sedition” and “treason.”
I told my followers that when they come that I don’t want you fighting them, because they’re only coming to kill you. But I’ve been expecting them.
I know what I have to go through. And I am going to be The Winner—that I know!

HCOB “Honesty and Case Gain” 1 is an extremely important piece of Hubbard’s scripture, both for Scientologists who practice it, and for wogs who want to understand and deal with the Scientology evil. Hubbard wrote it (and it is definitely his) less than a year after he was declared by Judge Breckenridge in the Scientology v. Armstrong case2 to be a pathological liar, and less than a year before he, or someone else, would end his life.
The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder LRH. The evidence portrays a man who has been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background, and achievements. The writings and documents in evidence additionally reflect his egoism, greed, avarice, lust for power, and vindictiveness and aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be disloyal or hostile.3
“Natter,” as the term is used in Scientology, means telling the critical truth about Hubbard, Scientology Scientologist leaders such as Miscavige or Rathbun, and their victims, the Suppressive Person class. Telling the truth about Hubbard, Scientology, Scientologists such as Miscavige or Rathbun and SPs signals to Scientology execs, OSA, C/Ses, sec checkers or auditors to interrogate the natterers and pull their withholds. The action of pulling natterers’ withholds is intended to introvert them, redirect their attention from the critical truth, or cave them in, and reconvert them into uncritical, compliant subjects. [Ref. Hubbard, L. R. (1961, 21 September). Smoothness of Auditing. Saint Hill Special Briefing Course, (6109C21). East Grinstead, Sussex.]
SPs are almost synonymous with natterers, because SPs are people who tell the truth about Hubbard, Scientology, Scientologists such as Miscavige or Rathbun, but will not stop telling the truth and will not be reconverted by the Scientologists applying the “tech” to them. That’s what it means when Hubbard says in Scientology scripture and Scientologists say that SPs don’t make case gain. These are the people – who tell the truth and won’t stop despite the tech – that Scientology scripture states are to be disposed of quietly and without sorrow.
The withholds these Scientologists seek from the natterers, interrogate them about, and want them to confess to, are the “overts” the natterers have against Hubbard, Scientology or Scientologist leaders. These “overts” include, very significantly, the truth the natterers have told about Hubbard, Scientology, Scientologist leaders, and their SP victims.
A C/S, auditor or sec checker would never ask people for the truth about Hubbard, Scientology or Scientologists leaders. And if a C/S, auditor or sec checker did so, he would be immediately be targeted, and interrogated or sec checked about his own “overts” against Hubbard, Scientology or Scientologist leaders.
The truth is that in Scientology it is virtually impossible for Scientologists to tell the truth about what is really important in their lives – Hubbard, Scientology, Miscavige and SPs if the Scientologists are in DM’s faction; or Hubbard, Scientology, Rathbun and SPs if they’re in Marty’s faction. This can be seen clearly in Marty’s faction by his visible dramatization of prohibiting the truth on his blog, and his labeling of the forums where the truth can be told about Hubbard, Scientology and himself as “natter boards.” Rathbun performed this same function of suppressing the truth, and punishing natterers or SPs who told the truth, while in the Sea Org.
Although Rathbun and Miscavige call each other SPs, neither can possibly be an SP because neither tells the truth about Hubbard, Scientology, themselves and SPs. Both Rathbun and Miscavige interrogate people or have them interrogated or sec checked and use Scientology tech to introvert them, redirect their attention from the critical truth, cave them in, reconvert them and render them uncritical and compliant.
Thus, this HCOB, which Hubbard undoubtedly wrote to cloak the fact that he had just been exposed as a pathological liar, is one hundred eighty degrees diametrically opposed to the truth. “Case gain” depends entirely on the Scientologists’ lying, about Hubbard, Scientology, Scientologists and SPs. OT VII’s and VIII’s, who have progressed to the top of Scientology’s grade chart, got there by consistently never telling the truth about these things.
Hubbard, source of the grade chart, and as OT as OTs come, was perhaps the most dishonest person to have ever walked on planet earth. Does anyone know any other person who told more lies than Hubbard? Can any Scientologist identify any other person who told more lies than Hubbard?
Scientologists, I know, are for the most party able to view the truth about Hubbard, Scientology, their leaders, fellow Scientologists and SPs. But the Scientologists must lie about the truth they view, in order to make case gain, and, of course, to avoid the pain and horror of reconversion or being declared SP.
