Narconon Arrowhead Is the Flagship Narconon Treatment Center
With room for as many as 210 clients at any given time, the Arrowhead center is among the largest in the Narconon network. The center features separate wings to accommodate male and female students, in addition to Executive Suites with WiFi and fax access for professionals and business owners who need to work during their time in recovery. Narconon Arrowhead is the flagship Narconon center, and as such it sets the standards for others to abide by.
It’s Located on a Major Recreational Lake
Narconon is located on the western shores of Lake Eufaula, the largest lake in the state of Oklahoma. Lake Eufaula boasts fully 600 miles of shoreline, and is a major vacation destination for people from throughout the region. People go camping in the forested hills surrounding Lake Eufaula and enjoy sunny days out boating or fishing on the water. The Narconon Arrowhead center is housed in a beautiful lodge that sits on a promontory with views of the lake and the rolling countryside, and is surrounded by the cabins where staff live and are on-site at all times to assist students when they need help. During their free time, students can enjoy a wide range of recreational activities ranging from walking and watching wildlife in the forests, playing volleyball, tennis or basketball, working out and lifting weights, or even going for excursions at the lake.
It’s a Major Employer for the Local Community
Located less than a 10-minute drive from the small town of Canadian, Oklahoma, Narconon Arrowhead is a fixture in the local community. In total, the center employs approximately 160 people who live in and around Canadian, a massive figure in light of the fact that the town is listed by the U.S. Census as having a population of only 239 people. In addition to providing jobs for the people who work at the center, Narconon Arrowhead plays a large role in boosting local economic activity by bringing people from all over the country to receive treatment, to train at the center and attend events.
Narconon Arrowhead Reaches Out
Drug rehab is not all that the team at Narconon Arrowhead does to fight the problems of drug abuse and addiction. They also engage in a wide variety of community outreach programs. One is to teach the Narconon drug prevention curriculum to school children and students in junior high or high school. For example, they average more than 50,000 in terms of students who they reach with an anti-drug message on a yearly basis. The group additionally participates in community events ranging from the prison rodeo to parades, festivals and more. After the devastating tornadoes hit Oklahoma last year, Narconon Arrowhead sent a team of volunteers to one of the stricken communities to lend their help in restoring order to the community.
