Pa. rehab CEO accused of selling heroin and fentanyl
A Pennsylvania drug rehab founder and CEO is accused of selling heroin and fentanyl to the addicts the facility was designed to heal.
Federal officials say 65-year-old David Francis was dealing those deadly drugs to clients and throughout McKees Rocks, a borough near Pittsburgh.
The Next Step Foundation that Francis operated is listed as providing recovery housing to drug addicts and alcoholics.
Instead of providing the housing, education, support and services to help them recover from addiction, as the organization’s mission states, federal agents say Francis was acting as their drug dealer.
