In the episode, Artin shares his professional background in the fields of finance and start-ups and lessons learned in the fields of entrepreneurship and social enterprise. Artin also talks about TROSA’s award-winning treatment model for helping men and women with substance use disorders, with a focus on how the program’s structure prepares individuals for a successful transition to life in recovery.
Some highlights of the conversation include Artin sharing what makes the TROSA community so special:
“Moving towards a common goal…I’ve definitely found that here at TROSA. The common thread that everyone has here is that people want a better life.”
“I’m incredibly thankful for a number of things. Even though we live in a congregate setting, we instituted a lot of really good practices originating back in March 2020 and we have not had any outbreaks at TROSA of COVID. I’m incredibly thankful for that. We also experienced a lot of dedication by our staff…people have had to go above and beyond for the last 18+ months. Everyone stayed very committed to what our mission is here and we are really fortunate for that.”
