A Safe Space

TROSA's Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

TROSA is a recovery program that empowers individuals with substance use disorders to change their lives. TROSA provides a safe, supportive place for residents to realize and affirm their self-worth, and learn to live life in recovery.

TROSA serves a diverse population. We are committed to upholding equity and supporting and promoting a culture of inclusion for our community regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, financial circumstance, sexual orientation, and gender expression.

We believe that change is possible, that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue a better life, and that every member of the TROSA community is a valued agent of change in a resident’s goal towards leading a life in recovery.

  • As a DIVERSE community, TROSA acknowledges and celebrates the balance of bringing together any individual from any background who needs a nonjudgmental and safe place to seek recovery.
  • TROSA is a community that recognizes EQUITY by understanding that different experiences, life circumstances, environments, and past situations and relationships can inform the trajectory of one’s path to recovery and can help to enrich and expand the overall benefit of our community.
  • By being INCLUSIVE, TROSA acknowledges that we must continue to accept individuals for whoever they are and provide a platform for personal and communal growth that promotes recovery.

At TROSA, we believe in the principle of “Each One Teach One” and that we all deserve an opportunity to affect change in our communities and in our own personal lives. We are an organization that grows and changes as we continually strive to ensure that each element or activity of TROSA’s program reinforces the connections to our community.

TROSA has several formal supports for our residents, graduates, and staff, including a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee whose goals are to encourage and provide space for TROSA staff and residents to address any concerns, ideas, or questions about diversity, equity, and inclusion on our campus; and to research and recommend additional resources, training, and workshops to continue to deepen our understanding of each other as a community.
