I have person experience with this non-profit. Started by a coupe who's son who took his life due to addiction. Nirvana was started in is memory. After 8 years due to overwork and stress the wife had a breakdown and relapsed after 26 years of sobriety. She was thrown out like a sack of garbage. Rumors were smeared that it was due to embezzlement even though she was to receive 2 years of back pay (prevailing wage) because they both worked for free the first 2 years. The new Director is a second striker who actually stole monies from the company and was given a chance. The directors didn't want to see him get 25-year to life. He has crossed sexual boundaries with female clients. Now he is running Nirvana with one years education. Great choice for leadership/ I would mot sent my dog there for treatment. Someday the truth will all come spilling out and Nirvana will face another leadership crisis.
