My brother recently entered Narconon for drug rehab. How worried should I be?

My brother, after almost 12 years of relatively heavy drug use with periods of "recovery", just shipped off to Narconon. My parents were essentially at wit's end and willing to do anything necessary to help my brother get clean. They did some preliminary internet searching, found an interventionist, and got sucked into the impressive marketing scheme that Narconon put on.
After he'd been there a couple weeks, they started hearing negative things about the program, and we recently realized that it's a front for the Church of Scientology. This is worrying in so many ways I don't even know where to begin. I'm essentially thinking we need to pull him out of the program and find somewhere else for him to be.
The problem is that my parents have paid a LARGE sum of money to them already, and finding more money for another rehab program isn't going to be easy. Plus, he's already out there and he was resistant to going to any rehab at all, so getting him to agree to go elsewhere may not be easy. He's already been through AA/NA-type programs and won't do another 12-step most likely.
I guess my questions are: How worried should we be? Should we find another program? How do we find another program that isn't just another problem?
