Narconon Drug Rehabilitation Center Expands in Mexico
|The first Narconon center was established in Mexico in 1998, in the city of Queretero. During the past decade the staff of this center has rehabilitated hundreds of addicts and educated thousands of kids throughout their region. They have always played an active role in their community, working closely with the police and numerous groups.|
|Just recently, the center expanded to a new facility in Celaya, about an hour east of Queretero. Their new premises are spacious, comfortable and have all that is needed to help the individual to overcome his/her addiction to drugs or alcohol. Narconon Mexico also offers drug prevention and education seminars that are delivered in the center itself or in schools, companies, churches or any other group in the community.
Aware of the ongoing drug wars in Mexico and of the high percentage of drug abuse in Celaya, the Narconon Mexico staff began reaching out to their new community to offer their help.
|This past week, Marisela de Espinal, Deputy Director of Narconon Mexico and the President of Narconon International, Clark Carr extended their offer of help to the community through a local TV station, “Canal 16”. Mr. Carr informed listeners of the continued work of bringing the Narconon First Step program to over 100 drug rehab centers in Mexico. He invited them, especially staff of the local drug rehab centers, to the First Step workshop that would be conducted in Celaya that weekend.|
|The workshop was delivered by Clark Carr and Laura Capaceta of Narconon International with the assistance of the Narconon Mexico’s Executive Director, Eduardo Espinal and Assistant Director Marisela de Espinal. The workshop was a big success, and awakened a great interest on the part of the attendees to implement the Narconon First Step drug withdrawal program in their own centers.|
|One of the attendees had this to say: “I am very pleased that there are such marvelous people who care so much for others like them, without expecting any return. We had no idea the things that can be done to make a more peaceful society, but really they were always speaking to us so clearly. Overall, I have no fear for my children, but now a hope seeing a future in which I can use the things that Narconon was pleased to train me in.”|
