Narconon is registered and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), for the regulated activity of accommodation with personal care. The CQC do not regulate the drug rehabilitation programme provided or judge its effectiveness.

Narconon is a private treatment provider, which has declared its regulated activity as dormant with the CQC. The rating for this provider has been suspended while the CQC gather information to determine any next steps. If a provider is found to have failed to notify the CQC that they were undertaking a regulated activity, the CQC would take regulatory action as necessary.
