Our team of Masters’ Level Clinicians, has more than 100 collective years of experience in treating addictive disorders and mental health disorders.

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 and depression. Now with 25+ years of active recovery, 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  and Substance Use Disorders.

This is where both adults and adolescents get expert, caring, effective help Masters’ 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 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 depression and 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.

Why we no longer accept insurance plans. We only accept Private Pay because the insurance companies rarely pay  for what the client really needs and those facilities that are dependent on insurance provider dollars for their operational needs build their programs around 15 to 30 days. We provide the care that our clients need and not what the insurance companies will pay. The goal is and should always be client success.  Our adorable telehealth and teletherpy  – services can be paid for out-of-pocket starting as low as $150 per month.
