Treatment Insights

Treatment at TROSA goes beyond basic sobriety. The residential substance abuse rehab strives to give clients real-life experience through vocational training and education, as well as peer counseling, mentoring, leadership training and aftercare. Once the two-year program is complete, clients are better equipped to handle the pitfalls and challenges of everyday life without turning to alcohol and/or drugs.

Areas of Focus
Individual Therapy

This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Aftercare Support

Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
