VISTA, CALIF.—Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers, Inc. (TROSA), Durham, N.C.—one of the nation’s leading and most respected residential, re-educational centers helping men, women, and young adults with substance abuse problems—will be receiving waterless urinal systems donated by Waterless Co, LLC, for a new facility the organization is building.
TROSA, which treats people free of charge, has been recognized as a leader in drug treatment therapies by Duke University and the Public Broadcasting Service and is a finalist in the Ford Foundation’s Leadership for a Changing World award. The waterless urinals will be installed in the facility’s future gymnasium/community center, now under construction, which will be used by more than 500 patients living at the treatment center.
“With as many individuals as we service, waterless urinals will [help us] save money in utility and water costs,” says Scott Duff, head of TROSA’s In-Kind Department. “And it will allow us to show that we are a good steward of the community through water conservation.”
Duff adds that the realized savings will be reinvested into TROSA as it helps more people “trying to make a change in their lives.”
According to Klaus Reichardt, managing partner of Waterless Co, TROSA has proven that it is not only one of the best but one of the most successful drug treatment facilities in the United States.
“We are proud to help it in any way we can and honor it for its concern about people trying to improve their lives and its efforts toward conserving water, sustainability, and protecting the environment,” he says. “This organization is good news all the way around.”
