Criminon has grown out of Narconon, an independent, non-profit corporation. The secular Narconon program has been operating since 1966, from its inception inside a prison in the United States; through its 37 drug education and rehabilitation facilities around the world, tens of thousands of people have benefited from it and are leading drug-free and productive lives.
riminon, an international criminal rehabilitation program, uses methods developed by L. Ron Hubbard. While it is strongly supported by the Church of Scientology, Criminon is independent and non-religious. Its program is open to people of all races and creeds.
