Narconon The Worlds Most Successful Drug Rehab.
Emmy Award winning actress, Kirstie Alley, has taken a stand against substance abuse in an effort to stop children from ever experimenting with and becoming addicted to alcohol and other drugs.
Fifteen years ago Kirstie Alley successfully conquered her own dependence to cocaine through the Narconon Program. Today she is Narconon's International Spokesperson.
As Narconon's International Spokesperson, she has taken a very strong stance against drugs and their spread across society. "Through my own experience with Narconon," she said, "I know it is possible to end any dependency upon alcohol and other drugs and to build a new, successful drug-free life for oneself. Addiction need not be a one-way street of no return. Drugs are a hell that our children do not need to go through."
Kirstie Alley takes special pride in presenting the Narconon Drug Free Hero awards each year.
The Drug Free Hero Awards pay special tribute to people whose lives are shining examples of selfless dedication and service to their fellow man, people who work ceaselessly to make the dream of a drug-free America a real future possibility.
Kirstie presented the 1994 awards and spoke of the "Bad Guys" who make drug addicts of children. Still tearful over the death of rock star Kurt Cobain, she quoted a People magazine report that Cobain, who committed suicide, had been a bright and active child who liked to sing Beatles tunes, until he was labeled "hyperactive" and put on the controversial drug Ritalin. He was then given sedatives to counter the side effects. "They set him up for drug addiction when he was in kindergarten" Alley said.
"We are the good guys," Alley told the audience of anti-drug leaders and celebrities attending the awards ceremony. "If we band together, the bad guys who push drugs in the name of help will burn away."
my own experience with Narconon, I know it is possible to end any dependency upon
alcohol and other drugs and to build a new, successful drug-free life for oneself."
