At a critical time when substance misuse is becoming a national crisis, Pillars is expanding its Addictions Services in the Chicago area. Pillars, the largest nonprofit provider of mental health and social services in the western and southwestern suburbs, has provided Addictions Services since 1975. Clients from any town who could get to Pillars’ Hickory Hills or La Grange Park locations could receive treatment in the past. As of January, the agency is now offering services at its Berwyn location, The Fillmore Center. The expansion means people in the Cicero-Berwyn area will have easier access to care. “Our goal is to get people sober and improve their quality of life—without removing them from the community or their homes,” says Helen Stewart, LCSW, chief clinical officer at Pillars. “By offering services in more areas, we are making it easier for individuals to find help. We’re right here alongside the BNSF tracks, a short walk or ride for those who live in proximity to Berwyn.” Pillars Addictions Services include:
