Darren Orloff founded Pillars Recovery in 2014 on three guiding principles: (1) to incorporate the model under which he got sober; (2) to take advantage of the advances in modern medicine and technology to create an even more effective program; and (3) to meet people where they are in their own personal journey. His ambitions stem from his own personal journey.
A California native, Darren moved to New Jersey at a young age. He grew up in the suburbs and excelled at athletics. Baseball soon became his passion and he dreamed of playing professional sports. This passion led Darren to head off to college for what he thought would be an amazing collegiate athletic and academic experience. However, like so many before and after him, Darren was not ready for college; and his dreams and aspirations were quickly taken over by drugs and alcohol. He spent the next decade moving up and down the east coast burning bridges and destroying relationships with anyone in his path before he made a decision to come to California to begin his road to recovery. It changed his life forever.
Today, Darren supports those who have found themselves on a similar path. Dismayed with the âcookie cutterâ approach often used by treatment facilities, Darren and his partners set out to put together a top-quality clinical team. Together, they combine the most advanced therapeutic techniques to help clients on their road to recovery. The product of their experience, along with the three guiding principles, has since led Pillars Recovery to become one of the finest treatment centers in all of Southern California.
