Programs: Vocational training - this is the cornerstone of trosa's treatment program. Trosa residents receive vocational training through all phases of the operations, which creates a sense of community and shared responsibility for the individual's and the group's success. Importantly, all residents gain a strong work ethic and a wide variety of marketable job skills (customer service, computer, and phone skills) as well as specific skills depending on the resident's vocational training placement (such as moving, lawn care, warehousing, auto mechanics, sales, construction and catering).

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.
