Paula Robertson, CAC II
We are so fortunate to have Paula with us at the Atlanta Healing Center. Paula began her career in the field of Nursing in Johnson City, TN. She left nursing to stay home and raise her daughters. In the early 2000s, her family was touched by the disease of addiction and also addiction recovery. This led her into her own journey of self-discovery and self-healing. She became very active in the recovering community of Northeast Georgia.

There she provided Level One DUI treatment groups.
