I'm actually a staff member at TROSA so I don't want to misrepresent myself. I moved from California to North Carolina 9 years ago to work here. There is no place on earth like TROSA. While it isn't for everyone and is very strict and rigid, it is a lifesaver for those who really want to change their lives and are willing and able to work hard to obtain a great life for themselves. TROSA is truly one-stop-shopping. We Provide medical, dental and mental health care and treatment. We use a combination of evidence based practices in substance abuse treatment and confrontation and accountability to encourage people to live in the world and become upstanding neighbors, family members and co-workers. While some rehabilitation is practiced, there is an equal amount of habilitation. I've been in this field for many years and am so proud to say I'm part of the staff at TROSA. Sandie Alger

I couldn't even begin to tell you how much this organization has changed my life. From the earliest age I had been surrounded by people with drug and alcohol problems, later I went on to have the same. I had been to prison twice and was on the verge of going back for a third time. I had completely given up hope of ever getting my life together. I am now a graduate of TROSA and it is almost surrealistic at times the quality of life I now have. This is a direct result of my time spent at TROSA.

I have followed this organization for the last 3-4 years, and have been impressed with their model of utilizing businesses as part of the therapeutic process. In addition to offsetting a majority of their operational expenses, these businesses provide valuable work experience for residents that will benefit after graduation. The leadership of the organization is passionate, informed, and engaged in the mission of rehabilitation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

direct observation of changed lives, and the ability of the residents to share their individual experiences with me 1-on-1.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

look for ways to grow / repeate the model, which has exhibited incredibly low recidivism rates vs. other rehabilitation models.

i am still clean and sober to this day, but it was because of my will not TROSA's.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

fire all the staff and hire real counselors to help the residents the right way.
