Our Commitment

IMG_0067 (3)Hi, my name is Derrick D. Billingslea, Founder and CEO of HUGS Recovery. U.S. Army Veteran, I was once hopelessly addicted for 23 years until I entered long-term rehab in Atlanta, GA in 1995.

Like others on our interdisciplinary team, I have both a personal and professional commitment to helping veterans and families just like yours who are in need of professional counseling services to help deal with issues like pain, substance use disorders and/or mental health disorders.

At HUGS we really care about our clients and are committed to helping those who are in crisis and seeking alternative drug-free pain management, recovery from the ravages of alcoholism, drug addiction and mental illness.  

I want you to experience the same feeling of success and fulfillment in recovery that I have experienced. My team and I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver the best service in the industry to you and your loved one.

If my family and I can experience freedom and recovery, so can you and yours. We have helped clients with limited insurance benefits and complex financial situations get the treatment they need and you have my personal commitment of helping you as well.

We invite you to join over 3000 other families and make HUGS Recovery, a great health care investment decision, for both you and your loved-ones today. 

Give us a call at 1-888-874-0593 or 404-228-2222
