Narconon is a discredited and dangerous (pseudo medical treatment not supported by evidence) 'drug rehab centre' that is a cash cow for Scientology in Australia.
They have been based in East Warburton for some 13 years - more than 10km from Warburton. In 2014 they applied to relocate into residential Warburton beside Warburton Primary School. A two year campaign by the local community resulted in the Yarra Ranges Council rejecting the application. Narconon appealed to VCAT in 2015 and lost when VCAT upheld the rejection of the application.
Narconon have been repeatedly sued and fined for various unpaid debts and misleading claims. These are all true descriptions, observations and facts found in judgements and news reports, in Australia and overseas, about investigations into the activities of Narconon. The community website built during the campaign remains as a repository of information for future reference.
