Priscilla Presley Reaches Out To Addicts
PRISCILLA PRESLEY shared the pain of her former husband ELVIS PRESLEY's drug problems during the opening of a rehabilitation centre yesterday (03JUN06). The 61-year-old spoke at the Michigan launch of a centre inspired by the teachings of Scientology founder L RON HUBBARD. Presley is a Scientologist. She insisted her own encounters with drug addictions made her delighted to be able to help others, saying, "We have become a drug culture and we need to do something about it. "We all know someone who struggles with the problems of alcohol or substance abuse." In an earlier statement Presley explained the so-called Narconon program is "capable of eliminating the very cravings that drive addicts in recovery back to drugs".
