Introduction and Basic Services

Pillars Recovery offers detox and gender-specific residential programming in the Orange County communities of Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. The facility was founded by two individuals in recovery themselves. Men and women who seek help through this organization can expect luxury accommodations and individualized treatment that includes dual diagnosis support.

Facility and Meals

The Newport Beach men’s facility maxes out at six beds, with clients sleeping two to a room. The beachside bungalow is literally steps away from the ocean, so clients have beautiful views on a daily basis. There are private balconies and decks and a separate private entrance from the street side. Common areas boast large leather couches and big screen TV along with a ping pong table and laundry on site.

The Laguna Beach women's facility is ideal for the outdoorsy type with over 50 miles of picturesque walking trails and beautiful coastal views. This residence, also limited to six beds, offers spacious and comfortable living quarters, Serta Motion adjustable beds and TVs in every room. Shared areas include a living room with comfortable couches, easy chairs and a big screen TV, in addition to a large dining area and enclosed glass sitting area.

While there is no on site gym in either location, clients are able to receive a gym membership to the local Equinox during their stay. Additionally, clients are permitted to smoke and have their cell phone and computers with them during treatment.

All meals are prepared by an on-site chef who serves three meals daily and sets out snacks.

Treatment Protocol and Team

During the initial intake process clients undergo a psychiatric screening and individualized treatment plan. Those who need detox are medically monitored 24 hours a day to ensure the experience is safe and as comfortable as possible. There are up to 30 hours of group therapy weekly and two individual sessions. Groups address relapse prevention, self esteem, coping and life skills. There are also elements of the 12 steps introduced to the clients and medication management for those with a co-occurring disorder is available as well.

Therapeutic modalities include CBT along with holistic approaches and massage. There is an overall emphasis on physical health and nutrition in conjunction with treatment. The staff includes RNs, MFTs, psychiatrists, LPCs and CADCs.

Aftercare planning takes place during treatment and can include referals to the outpatient program and sober living offered through Pillars Recovery. There are also family and couples counseling offered on an individualized basis.

Bonus Amenities

There are recreational activities clients participate in like beach trips, hiking or biking. Other sober outings can include movie nights, trips to the local theme park and Catalina Island, surf lessons, pilates, yoga, whale watching and jet skiing.


The philosophy behind the treatment provided at Pillars Recovery is that being sober doesn’t mean one’s life stops being fun. The staff shows their clients that not only can they get sober and be healthier, but also enjoy their lives on a different, more fulfilling level. The Pillars network is a solid resource for the Southern California recovery community and certianly a place that’s ideal for setting a foundation in sobriety.
