TRIANGLE RESIDENTIAL OPTIONS FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSERS (TROSA)
TROSA is an innovative, multi-year residential program that enables substance abusers to
be productive, recovering individuals by providing comprehensive treatment, work-based
vocational training, education, and continuing care.
TROSA is a comprehensive, long-term, residential substance abuse recovery program
located in Durham, North Carolina. Founded in 1994, TROSA is now the largest state-
licensed residential therapeutic community in North Carolina and is widely respected for
its innovative entrepreneurial approach to the pervasive issue of substance abuse.
TROSA accepts substance abusers with one condition: they must have a strong desire to
change their lives. The TROSA philosophy is based on principles of self-help and
individual empowerment. Key elements of the program include vocational training,
education, communication, peer counseling/mentoring, leadership training and aftercare.
TROSA's purpose is to help substance abusers overcome their addictions, so there are a
myriad of support groups and structured activities required for residents. By the time they
graduate from the program, residents have a personal savings account, a donated and
refurbished car, transitional housing, and marketable job skills.
Our motto, "Each One, Teach One," makes learning leadership skills part of everyday
life. Our President and staff teach leadership by sharing their own personal experiences
with residents and by being hardworking role models. Residents provide peer counseling
to one another and become examples of success when they graduate and transition into
the larger community.
We believe that people need support as they transition from a structured and supportive
environment to the larger community after a treatment program. We don't just sober
people up and then send them out the door; we assist residents during this time of
transition by providing housing, transportation and support groups.
Housing
Once residents graduate, they can choose to remain connected to TROSA by living in
TROSA-owned subsidized housing. These properties are typically two to three bedroom
apartments with individual or shared rooms. In this way, graduates can save money and
re-enter the community in a safe, supportive environment. Our housing programs house
individuals with other clean and sober graduates. The housing is low-cost, furnished, and
includes all utilities. When graduates move on to their own apartments, TROSA will even
provide them with furnishings for their new home.

                                                                       Chapel Hill and Vicinity


Transportation
An important element of our aftercare program is the transportation component whereby
we either provide free transportation to and from work or allow graduates to purchase a
vehicle from TROSA at an affordable price. Most cars are purchased for between $200
and $500. Have a car to donate? Donate a vehicle.
Graduates have the opportunity to purchase used vehicles donated to the TROSA
program and repaired by residents in the automotive department. Graduates are only
charged the price of the parts needed to repair the vehicle, and TROSA will not charge
graduates for auto repair labor on the vehicle as long as they remain "in good standing".
For individuals who are unable to obtain their drivers license, TROSA will provide
transportation to and from work for up to one year after graduation.
Support Groups
Graduates are encouraged to attend semi-monthly support groups that help make their
transition successful and support their continued recovery. Regular attendance at group
meetings or involvement in other TROSA activities is required for those who wish to
benefit from the full range of aftercare services provided.
Scholars Program
In recent years, TROSA has added a Scholars Program for graduates of the 2-year
program. Residents who have shown an interest in extending their time at TROSA to
continue their education can apply to become a scholar and enroll in a university, a local
college or a training/certificate program. We currently have residents attending
University of North Carolina, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State
University, Wake Tech Community College and Durham Tech Community College.
Peer Support Specialists
Residents who have shown an interest in extending their time at TROSA and becoming a
member of our staff can apply to become a peer support specialist. This is a one year
apprenticeship program. Peer support specialists are a key part of the community at
TROSA and help serve as positive examples to current residents and continue their
treatment while participating actively in our Aftercare program.

   Helping families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem
   drinking of a relative or friend. Similarly, Alateen, is our recovery program for young people.
   Alateen groups are sponsored by Al-Anon members.
   When two or more relatives or friends of alcoholics meet to solve their common problems,
   they may call themselves an Al-Anon family group, provided that, as a group, they are self-
   supporting and have no outside affiliation. A directory listing does not endorse any group or
   its practice of the traditional Al-Anon program. Alateen meetings consist of younger family
   members assisted by an Al-Anon sponsor.

  TRIANGLE RESIDENTIAL OPTIONS FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSERS (TROSA)
  At TROSA, we believe that vocational training is a cornerstone of the treatment program.
  Our goal is to prepare our residents for life after rehabilitation by helping them develop one
  or more marketable skills and establish a strong work ethic.
  Our operations and businesses are primarily staffed by TROSA residents. This allows us to
  provide services free of charge to our residents and is consistent with our program goals of
  creating a sense of community and allowing our residents to take responsibility for
  themselves and their treatment.
  As part of their treatment program, residents at TROSA participate in either our internal
  operations or our external businesses.
  Businesses
  TROSA maintains business programs that provide the following services: Moving & Storage,
  Holiday Sales, Lawn Care & Maintenance, Business Partnerships/Contract Labor, Frame
  Shop, Ebay Sales, TROSA Furniture..
  Internal Operations
  Besides the business programs that serve customers outside of TROSA, our own campus
  operation also provides real-world, hands-on vocational training for residents. TROSA
  residents provide services such as: Transportation, Building construction, Security, Office
  administration, Vehicle maintenance, Facility maintenance, Accounting, Food service,
  Soliciting product donations, Masonry, Painting, and Job Readiness.
  As residents near the end of the TROSA's 2-year program, they receive training in
  interviewing, resume writing and personal finance skills. They are assisted with job
  placement for employment either within TROSA or with an outside company.

  TRIANGLE RESIDENTIAL OPTIONS FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSERS (TROSA)
  TROSA believes it is important for our organization to stay involved in the community we
  are a part of. We believe that building an individual's self-esteem through learning to care
  about oneself and others is of paramount importance.
  To this end, TROSA residents regularly volunteer at a variety of community sponsored
  events and activities. TROSA residents typically volunteer at events in the following ways:
  set-up/breakdown, clean-up, parking attendants, assisting vendors, traffic flow. Some of the
  recent activities have included: Festival for the Eno, Bimbe Festival, La Fiesta del Pueblo,
  Durham Blues Festival, Town of Chapel Hill Employee Appreciation Day, Twilight at the
  Oasis (Cornucopia House), Centerfest, The Special Olympics, Various Neighborhood,
  Association events, Flood relief cleanup.

  Extracurricular activities
  In addition to GED, Advanced Education and Computer classes, extracurricular activities are
  offered regularly to our residents. These classes are taught by TROSA Staff, volunteers,
  graduates, or residents. Some examples are: creative writing, karate, yoga, jazzercise, art.
  Informal Classes. In addition to regularly scheduled classes, informal classes are often made
  available to our residents. As an example, the Duke Center for Documentary Studies
  previously taught creative writing and art classes, and TROSA has offered a charcoal
  sketching class. Artwork of the residents has been featured at art shows at the Durham Arts
  Council and the Duke Center for Documentary Studies.
  At TROSA, we believe part of the recovery process is to learn to have fun while sober and to
  engage in positive interactions with people inside and outside of your immediate community.
  Internal Activities
  At TROSA, we regularly schedule a variety of activities including: Dances, Camping,
  Picnics, Family Day, Lake Trips.
  External Activities
  Some people have never ordered from a menu, or seen a play before they came to TROSA.
  As a part of the Residency Program here at TROSA, we provide a variety of off-campus
  activities for our residents. Through participation in these activities we help introduce
  residents to safe, structured recreational activities such as those listed: Plays/theatre,
  Restaurants, Movies, and Concerts.

  TRIANGLE RESIDENTIAL OPTIONS FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSERS (TROSA)
  At TROSA, education plays a key role in helping residents to recover and to re-enter the
  workforce. Obtaining a diploma or a higher education degree boosts self-esteem and creates
  new opportunities for life and work after graduation.
  GED and Higher Education
  One in four people who enter TROSA have neither a high school diploma nor a General
  Equivalency Diploma (GED). Of those who have completed high school or some equivalent,
  only a handful has pursued higher education. All TROSA residents who lack a high school
  diploma or GED are required to attend adult literacy or GED classes. Volunteers and local
  educational organizations help TROSA to provide the best possible curriculum for our
  residents as they earn their diplomas.
  Residents who are in good standing in the TROSA program and who have obtained the
  necessary diploma may take college classes at local colleges and universities. Tuition and
  fees are paid by TROSA as part of the recovery program. Some of the program's residents
  have enrolled in college programs including accounting, business, substance abuse, and
  paralegal studies at schools such as Durham Technical College, North Carolina Central
  University, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina, and Wake Forest
  Technical Community College.
  Computer Classes
  TROSA also provides computer skills classes for its residents. In addition, TROSA has two
  computer labs with 36 computers that are available for general use. In the future we hope to
  offer more advanced computer classes and to incorporate interactive computer training and
  teaching aids into our Adult Literacy and GED programs.
