    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Strong sense of mission. Dozens of caring individuals manage a complex set of programs. Good career training when people choose to take it, including tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Suffers many of the problems endemic to the field: early burnout, crushing paperwork, colleagues relapsing or exhibiting stress, too little focus on dual disorder

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries, attract more qualified people, use social workers in preference to substance abuse counselors, pay attention to people issues.
