Online PR News – 05-February-2012 – – Clearwater, FL – Narconon ( Eastern US Drug Rehab Executives Yvonne Rodgers and Jeannine Dowdell join other Continental Office Executives from around the world at the annual Narconon International’s Continental Executive’s Conference.

Phil Hart, Executive Director Narconon International welcomed the attendees and delivered a briefing on the network’s unprecedented international expansion including highest ever graduates and admissions into drug rehab centers over the Christmas holidays.

Narconon International President (, Clark Carr, briefed attendees on his continuing efforts to deliver the Narconon First Step program across Latin America. The Narconon First Step drug withdrawal and relapse prevention program includes nutritional help, hands-on pain and anxiety reduction, and distribution of The Way to Happiness, a commonsense guide to better life choices, written by Mr. Hubbard. Existing drug rehab centers outside the Narconon Network and 12 Step programs have asked Mr. Carr to deliver the Narconon First Step program to their staff and participants. Most drug rehab programs in Latin America do not have the nutritional help and hands-on pain and anxiety reduction modalities that Narconon uses and can easily learn how to integrate these into any drug rehab program.

Conference sessions focused on how best to improve upon Narconon’s already unprecedented 75% success rate, best practices for running a Narconon rehab center, and how to implement the successful Narconon First Step Workshops being delivered in Latin America into every continent across the world.

Rodgers, Executive Director Narconon Eastern US. “It’s a very motivating time as we coordinate with our peers, are briefed on the latest news, get further professional training and finalize the year’s expansion plans.
