Mrs. Demetrice Way-Watts was born in Atlanta, Georgia and continued her education in Charleston, SC. Although there has always been a passion for substance abuse; she has dedicated her life to helping others live a productive life of sobriety. Her youngest sister was killed in 2008 before surrendering to the disease of addiction. At that point she made a promise to be supportive to the addict who still suffers.

Mrs. Watts has been certified as a substance abuse counselor since July, 2011. Prior to certification she began working in the field of addictions in 1997 at My Sister's House in Atlanta, GA. She served as a Case Manager for Veterans at Mary Hall Freedom House as well as a Primary Counselor before implementing a new Permanent Supportive Housing Program for them. Mrs. Watts facilitated groups such as Codependency, WRAP, How It Works & Why and Balancing Recovery. She also served as the lead facilitator for After Care. Just when she thought she had covered all bases her experience was opened to Methadone Maintenance. She served as a counselor at Woodstock Treatment Center assisting opioid addicted patients manage their addiction with medication. Helping people has always been a passion especially with the focus on addictions and the criminal justice. Her experiences have covered a wide array of services from an officer for Department of Juvenile Justice to opening transitional housing for Katrina victims.

The vision of Center Beyond Solutions was encouraged by combining all the skills acquired through education and work experiences. As Mrs. Watts traveled her journey she began to identify the common themes that made recovery successful as well as the pitfalls. Center Beyond Solutions primary goal is to remove the barriers that go beyond substance abuse.​​
