About Latitude Recovery
Latitude is a Christ-centered, faith-based recovery program for addiction and other behavioral health disorders. We are non-denominational and all-inclusive. Our nationally recognized team of professionals provide clinical and restorative therapies to support spiritual healing and unification with God. We understand behavioral health challenges develop differently from person-to-person, therefore, the design of each recovery plan is unique. A fully Integrated Continuum of Care shows us that long-term recovery success increases when people remain engaged in their recovery process, so our program minimum is 3 months with the average length of engagement of 1 year.
