Pillars Recovery is proud to announce a partnership with Show Me Your Stethoscope (SMYS).

Our mission is to engage the largest community of medical professionals in the US, provide the best resources available and learn how we can bridge these to industries to help provide better options and outcomes for the vast majority of those with substance use disorder that don’t get the level of help that they need.
The current drug epidemic has now become the leading cause of death for people under 50 years or age in the US, and we believe that the nurses in America can have on of the greatest affects on a grassroots solution.
Per the ANA: “As healthcare providers practicing on the front lines of the opioid epidemic, registered nurses are qualified and well positioned to play a leading role in assessing, diagnosing, and managing patients battling addiction.”
Recovery Community Organizations (RCOs) are actual physical support communities for those seeking help for substance use disorder. Most often these services are entirely free, and do not require insurance. Follow the link to a map of accredited RCOs on Faces and Voices of Recovery.
Those who suffer from SUD often have legal issues ranging from unpaid tickets to active warrants, DUI charges, or other drug related crimes. Facing Addiction is a non-profit advocacy group with resources for those facing legal issues.
Advocacy is an important part of bringing awareness and reform to addiction medicine. Click here to see resources for advocacy.
