Waylon D. Hinson, CPC, ELI-MP - Founder and Owner
Waylon’s vision for Legacy Freedom Treatment Centers is to provide treatment that heals underlying causes and conditions, while also helping clients find their dogma or reason for being. He brings a unique perspective to helping his clients. Waylon believes we all have core issues we need to work on. He says treatment helps people break through all of this to heal and bring the brain back to a normal state. Waylon’s goal is to help every client not only achieve recovery but also find their purpose in life. He focuses on helping people find whatever it is in life that makes them tick.
