Criminon, meaning “no crime,” is a volunteer criminal rehabilitation program which utilizes technologies developed by L. Ron Hubbard to help convicts recover pride and self-esteem. Today Criminon operates in more than 2,000 prisons, assisting some 100,000 inmates, through correspondence courses or delivering on-site seminars, with remarkable results.
Criminon provides inmates with the knowledge and skills to change their lives and become productive members of society. Inmates who have completed the Criminon program show dramatic improvements in compliance with conditions of probation—including restitution, fine payment and community service. Criminon is further known to cut 80 percent recidivism rates to zero and entirely eradicate cellblock violence. The program is so successful, in many cases it is mandated nationally across entire prison systems.
