Note
Synanon, founded by Charles Dederich, Sr. in 1958, with headquarters in Santa Monica, CA, evolved into a drug detoxification and rehabilitation center that attracted wealthy drug and alcohol abusers. Eventually the organization became a $30 million nonprofit organization, with chapters in San Francisco, Tulare and Marin Counties, and countries around the world. Dederich declared Synanon a religion in 1974. Dederich was forced to give up control of Synanon in 1979 after pleading no contest to conspiracy to commit murder.
