About Narconon

Narconon was established in Santa Cruz County a little over a decade ago. The Narconon program as a whole has existed for over 40 years. The Narconon Program was begun by an inmate in Arizona State Penitentiary in 1967. William Benitez, Narconon Founder, once said he always remembered the addicts most treasured conversation, “one of these days I’m going to quit. . . “. He set out to overcome his own struggles with drug dependency and to help his fellow inmates as well.

The Narconon facility is located on over 28 acres of beautiful mountainside land. We house at any one time around 40 students, and run at close to capacity year round.

The Narconon staff are dedicated to helping those who are faced with the task of learning a new way of life. This is both a personal and professional duty for us, as many of our staff are recovered addicts themselves.

A typical stay at our facility is between 3-5 months. However, when people ask, our philosophy is that, “it takes as long as it takes.” In other words, with each individual client comes a unique set of challenges and life experiences, and in so keeping, every client is different and will face their own hurdles.
