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'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
