Narconon NepalOverlooking the Kathmandu valley, with a spectacular view of the majestic Himalayan Mountains, sits a place of hope and health for individuals in the region who suffer from drug addiction and alcohol addiction. Although official reports are rare, and often contrary, the addiction problem is quite evident throughout Nepal. Basanta Raj Kunwar recognized this problem years ago and brought about an energetic campaign against drugs which ultimately lead to the opening of Narconon Nepal. The current facility is able to house 150 people at a time and has a 70% success rate.

Basanta Kunwar works tirelessly to educate his fellow citizens of the dangers of drugs, but also the hope that is available through the Narconon Nepal program. The once Senior Superintendant for the Chief of Police is now the Executive Director of Narconon Nepal. He and others travel far and wide to offer hope and healing to the many people suffering from drug addiction. Recently, they held a 2 day workshop in Delhi, India. As a result of his efforts, thousands of people have entered the doors of the rehabilitation campus and left drug free.
