Our treatment center is a refuge for those who are struggling. Whether clients have a substance use disorder or a mood disorder, our credentialed team helps them to find lasting recovery. Pillars Recovery provides comprehensive, holistic treatment for addiction, mental illness, and chronic pain. Read on to learn more about our dual diagnosis and triple diagnosis programming.

Substance Use Disorder

Substance use disorder is the clinical term for a chronic, relapsing dependence on drugs or alcohol. This reliance is both physical and psychological, which makes it nearly impossible for someone to stop drinking or using on their own. It also worsens over time. Often, substance use begins in a social or casual setting but eventually becomes compulsive. People develop a tolerance for their substance of choice, requiring more and more of it to achieve the same effects. They also begin to experience withdrawal symptoms when they try to abstain.

Drug Addiction

Through a combination of detox, residential programming, and outpatient services, Pillars Recovery treats those dependent on a variety of drugs, including:

  • Prescription opioids (oxycodone, hydrocodone)
  • Illicit opiates (heroin)
  • Prescription stimulants (Adderall, Ritalin)
  • Illicit stimulants (methamphetamine, cocaine, crack)
  • Marijuana
  • Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Klonopin)
  • Inhalants
  • Party drugs
  • Barbiturates (sleeping pills)


Alcohol is legal, but it is also one of the deadliest substances worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that it is a catalyst for more than 200 diseases and injurious conditions. Additionally, each year, more than 3 million deaths are attributed to harmful use of alcohol. This trend is especially pronounced among young adults—within this group, 13.5% of deaths are connected to alcohol. Pillars Recovery recognizes the factors driving alcoholism, including social pressure and chronic stress. Our alcohol treatment center delivers accredited, evidence-based programming for those exhibiting problem drinking behaviors.

Mental Illness: Dual Diagnosis

Addiction rarely occurs on its own; it often presents alongside mental health issues. This combination of conditions is called a dual diagnosis. Common co-occurring conditions include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), schizophrenia, and panic disorder. To successfully resolve cases of dual diagnosis, our accredited treatment center provides simultaneous treatment of substance use disorder and mental illness. We have also crafted a treatment program to aid those with a third diagnosis: chronic pain.

Chronic Pain: Our Triple Diagnosis Program

In our years of operation, we have found that many instances of opioid addiction stem from inadequate treatment of chronic pain. This finding spurred the creation of our triple diagnosis program. Our team addresses substance use disorder, mental illness, and chronic pain. We analyze each person’s experience with these issues and the ways in which they affect one another. By treating the whole person, we lay the groundwork for lasting recovery.
