In response to NBC’s Rock Center interview with Lucas Catton and Eric Tenorio, Scientology and Narconon have created a website to publicly smear Catton and have published false information. about him It is also a retaliation for Catton’s book “Have You Told All? Inside My Time with Narconon and Scientology.”
The home page to the site (pictured here) has several lies on it.
…The “Success Stories” from when Catton was a student at Narconon were retrieved from his confidential Scientology counseling folders, which reside at Flag in Clearwater and contain information from when he attended Narconon. The videos posted on the site were also taken by Scientology staffers at the Flag church building known as The Oak Cove in Clearwater, yet Narconon and Scientology still try to claim they are separate.
The Narconon/Scientology corporation’s tactics are despicable. They resorted to publishing lies on the internet rather than going on camera to discuss their deceptive practices, thus showing their true colors to the rest of the world once again.

Narconon is a front group for Scientology Inc
Narconon speciously recruits and swindles money for Scientology.
“Narconon preys on vulnerable people. That’s part of the sales techniques,”
said Lucas Catton, who stepped down as President of Narconon’s Arrowhead facility in Oklahoma in 2004.
Tenorio said he believes the deaths at Narconon Arrowhead could have been prevented if qualified addiction counselors had been on staff.
Beyond the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard, he said, staff members do not receive instruction on how to treat people addicted to drugs or alcohol.
And if there is any question whether or not it’s ALL ABOUT THE MONEY, Catton addresses that here:
“You’re willing to either lie to [prospective clients] or misrepresent who you are or take people who aren’t really qualified; anything to bring in the money to keep the facility going, week after week after week,” said Catton.

LEAK: Scientology’s Rehab Went from $5,000 to $2.5 Million in Insurance Revenue in One Year | Narconon
— Tony Ortega (@TonyOrtega94) April 3, 2013
We can hardly keep up with the documents that former Narconon officials Luke Catton and Eric Tenorio have been making public. The most recent is a stunning e-mail that Catton released yesterday, showing how much Scientology’s flagship drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma, has turned to revenue from insurance companies to bolster its bottom line.
Catton gave us a copy of the e-mail, which he says he received from Narconon Arrowhead CEO Gary Smith early in 2010. Catton himself was once the president of Narconon Arrowhead, but he had left by this time and was operating numerous websites that directed new clients to Smith’s facility. It was important for Catton to be kept up on what was happening at the rehab center, he says, and Smith’s update was a crucial one.
Thank you Tony Ortega for exposing the con game of Scientology’s front group Narconon
And thank you to Luke Catton and Eric Tenorio for having the courage to step forward and take action to stop the crimes of the Cult of Scientology and the Sea Organization.
Is Scientology’s Secret Police, the Sea Organization’s Office of Special Affairs (OSA), stalking Luke Catton and his family?
Check out Luke’s comment below and decide for yourself:
Thanks! We’ve definitely hit their radar, as indicated by a suspicious blacked-out car and a blocked phone number silent caller yesterday. It could be nothing, but I’m also not too naive to think it couldn’t be “them”. I’ve also gotten wind of how they’re trying to “Dead Agent” us and secret conference call planning sessions. They should know that the more they try to do shit like that the more they will be exposed = more bad press and less income.

As smoking guns go, this one is high caliber and billowing.
Scientology’s drug rehab program, Narconon, is in serious trouble because of a series of patient deaths, government investigations, and civil lawsuits. And as we’ve pointed out numerous times, former Narconon employees and leaked documents have revealed that nearly every step of Narconon’s business model involves some sort of deception.
Now, another stunning disclosure. Former Narconon employee Eric Tenorio has turned over to the Underground Bunker a remarkable e-mail written by a Narconon International legal affairs officer who admits that “we do not have scientific evidence of” the 70 percent and higher rates of success that the rehab programs advertise.
