Substance use disorder is a public health crisis. Reports are showing that the rate of substance use disorders among women is increasing. TROSA is an innovative and essential community resource that helps rebuild women’s lives. Our TROSA residents are resilient, courageous, inspiring, and strong…and we have an urgent need to expand our unique Women’s Program today.

Rebuilding Lives

Studies are showing that women are turning to drugs and alcohol to cope with daily life at a greater rate than before. The COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to this increase, heightening anxieties, stress, and financial uncertainties. More women continue to need recovery programs like TROSA.

TROSA’s success is due in large part to the residential nature of our program. We provide a safe community and services at no cost to our residents, allowing them to focus on what’s important—recovery. 

For many years, our female residents lived off-campus in a TROSA-owned building in downtown Durham. They traveled to our main campus for classes, medical appointments, counseling, daily program activities, and special events. The building needed major renovations, had little privacy, and was logistically challenging to coordinate daily travel. As demand for TROSA grows, we decided the time was NOW to enhance and expand our Women’s Program with a dedicated campus. Called TROSA-East (T-East), it is located directly across from our main campus in Durham.

TROSA East (T-East) Women's Campus

On December 2020, we celebrated the opening of our new women’s housing. Our new women’s housing is the first phase in a multi-year project for TROSA’s T-East campus. These new homes provide greater proximity to our daily program activities and increase connection throughout our campus. Connection and community are vitally important for TROSA. They are the key components for rebuilding healthy lives and maintaining recovery.

We eagerly look forward to the next phases of our T-East campus:

  • A new Community Center for our women and additional housing to serve more female residents. The Community Center will be a gathering hub, with space for therapeutic groups and classes, communal dining, and socializing–a space to form the critical friendships and support networks that will help our residents maintain their recovery goals.
  • An additional building that will have new beds for female residents in recovery at TROSA. As substance use and mental health disorders continue to increase in our nation, we must increase our capacity to help rebuild—and save—more lives.

We can only do this with your help.

Please stand with us and donate today to support recovery! Your support today means a healthy tomorrow for our women in recovery.  Contact TROSA’s Development Office to learn how you can help rebuild lives: development@trosainc.org and 919-419-1059 ext 1600.
