Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pillar team has been continuing to put patient safety at the forefront. We have been following all CDC and state guidelines regarding operations and safe social distancing procedures. We will continue to conduct as much business as possible via phone calls and telehealth, where appropriate. All visitors to our sites are screened and temperature checked before entry. Proper PPE is also utilized by staff and provided for patients. We are continuing with several new studies and appreciate your continued support throughout these challenging times!

Our Mission Is to Provide a Professional & Honest Approach to Clinical Trials

What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials are designed to study the effects of investigational pharmaceutical compounds and devices.  Volunteers that qualify to participate in a clinical trial will be under the supervision of a study physician, also known as a “principal investigator” and other research staff.  The purpose of a typical clinical trial is to evaluate investigational drugs or devices for effectiveness, tolerability, and safety in order to help the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) make a decision on whether the drug or device should be FDA approved.  Learn more about participating in clinical trials by visiting our FAQ page.


Expert Investigators

Our Principal Investigators (physicians) have the experience and expertise in conducting pivotal inpatient & outpatient trials for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, addictions & more.


Inpatient & Outpatient

All of our locations have outpatient as well as inpatient clinical trials capabilities for studies that require post-dose and overnight monitoring, frequent PK’s,  and inpatient hospitalization.


No Insurance Required

Research study related assessments, exams, labs, and procedures are conducted at no cost to you as the volunteer.  Insurance and out-of-pocket payments are not required to participate.


Coordinated Care
