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.

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.

they suck. they work you like dogs 16 hours a day and there is no time for therapy. love, dylan emerson

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

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.
