For Nearly Two Decades We’ve Been Providing Effective Treatment & Recovery Solutions for Atlanta and America

HUGS Recovery Centers are the skilled leaders in addiction treatment and recovery management. We have the decades of experience to truly understand your situation. We know the best ways to help you. Our team has more than 100 collective years of personal experience in recovery.

I’m Derrick D Billingslea, the founder of HUGS Recovery Centers and a former rehab client as well.  I experienced the full dive to the bottom of active addiction. Now with more than two decades sober, I have the background and first hand experience to deeply understand what you and your family are going through.

We are highly trained professionals with the personal experience that makes a big difference in our approach. We have been licensed by the State of Georgia since 1999. And Internationally Accredited since 2004. We provide a full range of treatment for issues like Alcoholism, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Opioid and other Substance Use Disorders.

This is where both adults and adolescents get expert, caring, effective help. Our team of Master’s Level Clinicians provide affordable care that can give you your life back. This is the next step to help you overcome challenges and move on to a far better experience.

Some other treatment clinics seem to be in it just for the money. You wonder if they really care about you. And you aren’t sure their methods are actually going to help you or your loved one recover.

Because many on our team have been in rehab, some overcoming decades of addiction, we have the personal commitment to give you the respect and effective treatment you deserve. We want you to get well. And do so without breaking the bank.

We accept Most major insurance plans. And because we are centrally located in Atlanta, Georgia – this is a program that is convenient for  many people.
