NEWKIRK - Response to a series of drug prevention lectures
has been overwhelming, said a spokesman for the Narconon
Chilocco New Life Center, which presents the lectures.
More than 10,000 people have attended the "Truth About
Drugs" lectures at about 200 Oklahoma schools, businesses
and community groups in recent months, said Gary Smith of Narconon.
"We have been especially in demand in public schools as
children are in need of the truth about drugs," Smith said.
Narconon is an international network of drug and alcohol rehabilitation
centers and has been involved in education for 23 years. The group is
renovating the Chilocco Indian School campus for a new center to open in
1990. The site is near Newkirk.
