TROSA is a licensed innovative, multi-year residential therapeutic community. Each day, TROSA gives more than 400 men and women the tools and support they need to be productive, recovering individuals by providing counseling/mentoring, life skills and vocational training, education, and continuing care. We provide these services and housing, food, clothing, and personal care items to every resident at no charge.

The TROSA community relies on its members, both staff and those in the program, as key agents of change. These change agents influence individual attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors associated with drug use. Our motto, “Each One, Teach One,” reflects the importance of peer support in our program and the community’s vital role in achieving and maintaining recovery. Services are provided by program graduates, peer leaders, licensed and certified treatment professionals, and trained peer support specialists.
TROSA residents participate in experiential vocational training through their Community Assignments. Community Assignments, a cornerstone of TROSA, help mimic a successful life outside of TROSA: waking each morning with a purpose and a role to fill. During their Community Assignment, residents not only learn vocational training skills, but they also learn life skills such as communications and time management, how to work as part of a team, and how to contribute to the overall community. Residents will learn specific life and vocational skills by participating in various departments throughout our campus, including our social enterprises. Community assignments boost individual confidence and self esteem; foster a sense of community and shared responsibility for personal and group success; and prepare people for success beyond TROSA’s campus.
Education is a key component of our treatment program. Research shows the more education and training individuals attain, the more successful they will be at gaining and maintaining stable employment allowing them to return to their families and communities and to maintain recovery. After six months in the program, TROSA requires residents without a high school diploma or GED to take an adult literacy or GED class. Other residents have opportunities to take classes on computer skills, relapse prevention, or interview and job skills space and time in the program allow.
Recovery is a life long process; TROSA encourages graduates to stay involved in our community. Our Continuing Care services help program graduates stay in recovery, employed, and crime free as they transition into the community. Services include transportation to and from work; access to safe, low cost housing; and support groups focusing on relapse prevention. The graduates’ engagement in the TROSA community benefits their recovery and helps current residents.
