Celebrating the Narconon Program's 43rd Anniversary
February 19, 2009
The Narconon® program: saving lives for 43 years today!
On this date in 1966, Narconon founder William “Willie” Benitez, Arizona State Prison inmate, convinced prison officials to give him permission to start the first Narconon program inside the prison walls.
So on our 43rd anniversary, Narconon International would like to acknowledge all the dedicated staff who have worked in our drug rehabilitation and prevention centers, all of our volunteers and contributors who have supported our work, and the tens of thousands of graduates who have successfully kicked their habit and give hope to others that a drug-free life is possible.
