Board of Directors
Nicholas Basalyga, Founder // Board President
Nick Basalyga, founder of In The Saddle, is a 2014 graduate of New York University's Master of Social Work program and a 2012 graduate of West Chester University's Bachelor of Social Work program.
Professionally, Nick has worked in a variety of settings with diverse populations. Commonly, he found that drug and alcohol abuse was a variable that contributed to a person's need for services. Most recently, Nick worked as a primary counselor at an inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center where he witnessed the growth that individuals can achieve while in a structured setting, supported by peers in recovery. But, too often he was exposed to the reality of what can happen when structure and support lessens following an inpatient treatment experience - relapse and re-admittance into treatment. By creating In The Saddle, Nick's goal is to provide additional support and structure to individuals in early recovery and beyond.
Nick has been "in the saddle" since May 10th, 2010.
