The Process

Speak to Our Team

We understand that each man’s circumstances are unique. Speak to someone on our admissions team before completing an application to determine if an application is an appropriate step for you. If it isn’t, we can provide alternative treatment resources for you.

Complete an Application Online

Once your application is received, we will reach out to you to schedule and conduct an interview to further determine your eligibility. Typically, this interview happens over the phone but can occur face-to-face on our campus.

Review and Determination

Once our admissions team completes your interview, we will review your information, including any prior treatment records, and make an admissions determination. If accepted into the program, we will contact you and schedule an admission date. If not accepted into the program, we will contact you and offer alternative resources that may better match your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of addictions do you treat?

Alcoholism, prescription opioids, Heroin, Fentanyl, Marijuana, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, and other chemical-based addictions. 

Do you accept insurance?

No, not at this time. Unfortunately, nearly all short-term addiction treatment programs are funded by insurance. This leaves those insurance companies to make length-of-stay and other treatment decisions. Unfortunately, this can lead to a person needing multiple cycles of treatment and increasing the likelihood of relapse. 

We don’t think that this approach has the man’s best interest at heart, and this is how No Longer Bound is different. By not accepting insurance, we are not restricted by a third party making treatment decisions.  

Instead, we have structured our program based on this well-known fact: people are less likely to relapse when they complete a long-term program than a short-term one. No Longer Bound’s unique industry program, our generous donors, and program admission fees are used to fund 100% of each resident’s treatment.

What if I don’t have the money to pay?

During the initial phone conversation, we will discuss your financial situation to figure out the path to covering the cost of treatment. Men pay their admission fees in different ways; some, with the help of family or friends. It is common for people in addiction to have financial challenges, and we understand that. Scholarships are sometimes available to assist applicants with their admission fee.

Do residents have to stay for the entire 9-12 months?

Yes. Time is the most critical element of our residents’ success. Most short-term programs are 30, 60, or 90 days – typically due to the duration of insurance coverage. Our long-term program gives men the opportunity to physically and mentally heal, and progress through the four specific phases of our program. It allows them to build relationships, practice recovery in a safe place, and learn skills to go back to work after program completion.

How is Christianity a part of your program? Is No Longer Bound a certain denomination?

We do not associate with one specific denomination. In the first thirty days, there is no mention of Christianity in our curriculum. After that point, our program encourages men to ask difficult questions and explore their faith.

Christianity is interwoven throughout No Longer Bound’s program curriculum. In fact, every assignment the men complete has some element of faith in it – whether it’s journaling or digging into their past experience with religion.

Once a week, residents attend “house church” where they all gather in one room, read “The Word”, and cover each other in prayers and praises. Many residents claim this weekly get-together is the most substantial and impactful way they grow their faith while they’re in the program.

At No Longer Bound, we know that a simple lifestyle change isn’t going to cut it. Our goal is to transform lives beyond sobriety, which we believe can only be achieved with intimate relationships with God, self, and others. 

Is No Longer Bound a THOR-approved center?

No, we are not a transitional housing program. We are a long-term residential recovery and treatment program.

Can friends and family visit during a resident’s stay? How will we talk?

Friends and family can visit, however, we require that new residents have no contact with anyone off campus in their first 30 days of stay. As he is reorienting himself and getting established with the program, we want him to be completely present and focused on establishing his purpose at No Longer Bound. 

 

As he progresses through the program, visits on campus and time permitted off-campus increase. We also provide tablets for men to video chat with their families on a regular basis throughout the week. Families can also come to campus on Sundays and visit with him for a few hours. Finally, we ask that the men have weekly accountability calls with a family member to help reinforce the communication aspect of recovery.
