Description:

In 1986, a Narconon drug rehabilitation center was opened in Morkov, Denmark, 85 miles from Copenhagen. They are fully licensed by their local authorities to provide drug treatment and alcohol abuse treatment for those suffering from dependence or addiction. The residential treatment center is also fully certified as a non-profit organization, devoted only to saving lives from overdoses and addiction.

The purpose of this long-term, residential treatment program is to give addicts the tools they need to build a new, fully drug-free life. When an addicted person can become drug-free for life, this is far better than providing a substitute drug or practicing "harm reduction" which means trying to teach a person who is abusing drugs and alcohol how to do it more "safely" because it is thought that no effective solution exists.
