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.

 

 

Complete an Application Online

Once your application is received, we will reach out to you to schedule an interview to 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.

Note: If you or your loved one is in crisis, or experiencing an emergency, please call 9-1-1, or the Georgia Crisis & Access Line at 1-800-715-4225. No Longer Bound is not an Emergency Receiving Facility and thus, we do not conduct emergency or crisis-related admissions.

Our Admissions Department is staffed Monday-Friday from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. Inquiries received outside of business hours and on weekends will be responded to in the order received beginning on the next business day.

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 means insurance companies make length-of-stay and other treatment decisions. Unfortunately, this can lead to a person needing multiple cycles of treatment, increasing the likelihood of relapse. 

We don’t think that this approach has the man’s best interest at heart.  In not accepting insurance, we are not restricted by a third party making treatment decisions. Instead, our program is based on this well-known fact: long-term sobriety is contingent on length of treatment. In other words, people are less likely to relapse when they complete a long-term program. No Longer Bound’s unique industry program, our generous donors, and program admission fees are used to augment the cost of treatment, making one full year affordable.

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 12 months?

Yes. Time is the most critical element of No Longer Bound’s program. Most short-term programs are 30 days, with length of stay decisions made by insurance companies. 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. The Christian faith is woven throughout No Longer Bound’s program curriculum. Almost every assignment has some exploration of faith, whether it’s journaling or digging into their past experience with religion. Once a week, residents attend “house church” where they gather for faith-based discussions, readings, meditation and prayer. Many residents claim this weekly get-together as a significant and impactful way they grow their faith. On Sundays, men attend church.

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 through intimacy 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 new residents have no contact in their first 30 days. As a man is reorienting himself establishing himself in the community, we want him to be present and focused at No Longer Bound. 

As he progresses through the program, campus visits and time off-campus increases. We provide tablets for men to video chat with their families on a regular basis. Families come to campus on Sundays to visit and, after the first 30 days, residents have weekly accountability calls with a family member to help reinforce open communication in recovery.
