McALESTER — Narconon Arrowhead’s CEO says he doesn’t understand why legislators are giving “so much attention” to a bill that gives the state oversight of his facility and others like it.
Narconon Arrowhead CEO Gary Smith said Wednesday his organization has no problems with Senate Bill 295.
“However we do not understand the amount of legislative attention that has been spent on (the bill) when you consider the number of critical issues facing Oklahomans that require legislative solutions,” he said in a statement.
Gary Smith is in glee if he cannot understand what is going on here.
Four individuals have died as inpatients at his facility. But after all, only their bodies died – those thetans didn’t die, right Gary?
They were just wogs, right Gary?
That’s what Scientology taught you, right Gary?
Hey Gary, remember Stacy Dawn Murphy?
Narconon IS a front group for Scientology recruiting and fundraising.
LEAK: Scientology’s Rehab Went from $5,000 to $2.5 Million in Insurance Revenue in One Year | Narconon

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.
BREAKING: National body revokes counseling license of Gary Smith, CEO of Scientology’s flagship drug rehab facility bit.ly/15Aniyo

The Underground Bunker has learned that Gary Smith, CEO of Scientology’s flagship drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead, has been stripped of his drug counselor certification by the National Association of Forensic Counselors.
The NAFC’s CEO and president, Karla Taylor, confirmed today that her organization has sent out letters that suspend or revoke Certified Chemical Dependency Counselor (CCDC) certifications to numerous employees of Narconon programs in Oklahoma and Georgia — two facilities that have been the center of controversy after patient deaths, criminal investigations, and multiple lawsuits. Taylor says she has confirmation that Smith has received his revocation notice.
Mary Rieser has also lost her CCDC, but the former Narconon Georgia executive director may have bigger problems with the state continuing a criminal insurance fraud probe of the facility.
Hey Gary Smith, remember Stacy Dawn Murphy?
Let’s hope this Scientology front group is exposed for what it is: A Cult preying on individuals during a crisis, looking to extract money from them.
