Narconon Helping Indigenous in Mexico Escape from the Nightmare of Drug Abuse

March 31, 2014

First Step Workshop Attendees in Uruapan Mexico (Narconon)

Indigenous Indians from the jungles of Oaxaca and the mountains of Veracruz, Mexico recently attended Narconon First Step workshops to learn how to use simple, but effective rehab tools such as vitamins and minerals, communication and orientation exercises, and the booklet The Way to Happiness.

The workshops were given in both Spanish and Nahuatl, one of the ancient languages of Mexico. The workshop generated enough excitement that now Gero Antonio Rivera, director of Beneficiencia Amigos, a rehab in Xalapa, Veracruz, is working together with some of these Indians to translate The Way to Happiness into Nahuatl.

“Few people if any reach up into the hinterlands of Mexico to help Indian tribes like these from La Sierra de Zongolica,” says Laura Capaceta, a Narconon International volunteer originally from Mazatlán, Sinaloa. Laura has dedicated herself to working with Narconon to help Mexicans and other Latin Americans learn effective rehab tools.

“These indigenous peoples have been impacted hard by the narcotrafficking wars,” Laura continued. “They’ve told me that hundreds of their village men have been kidnapped into narco gangs. Now they themselves are learning how to help their own young drug addicts to recover not just from drugs, but from criminality and the ways of war.”

Some years ago, when Narconon first delivered workshops to Twelve Step and other centers in the state of Michoacán, the response was huge. Someone was coming to help them.
