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 the best step. If it isn’t, we will provide alternative treatment resources.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Complete an Application Online

Once we receive your application, we will schedule an interview with you to determine your eligibility. This interview typically 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 a determination. If accepted into the program, we will schedule an admission date. If not accepted into the program, we will provide you with alternative resources that may better match your needs.

Note: 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. If you or your loved one is in crisis, please call 9-1-1 or the Georgia Crisis & Access Line at 1-900-715-4225. Because No Longer Bound is not an Emergency Receiving Facility, we do not conduct emergency or crisis-related admissions.

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?

Not at this time. Nearly all short-term addiction treatment programs are funded by insurance, which means insurance companies make  length-of-stay decisions as well as other treatment decisions. Having a third party funder decide how much care a person needs is a primary cause of people in addiction needing multiple cycles of treatment.

In not accepting insurance, No Longer Bound is not restricted by third treatment decisions. Our program is based on the well-known fact that long-term sobriety is dependent on length of treatment. Our unique funding model is driven by our social enterprises (NLB Thrift and No Longer Bound Cars). That combined with support from our generous donor community keep our fees low.

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

During the initial phone conversation, we will discuss your financial situation to determine a means for funding treatment. Men pay  admission fees in different ways; some, with the help of family or friends. We understand it’s common for people in addiction to have financial challenges. 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. Most assignments have some exploration of faith. Once a week residents attend “house church” for faith-based discussions, readings, meditation and prayer. On Sundays, men attend church.

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 after a resident’s first 30 days. As a man is orienting himself and establishing himself in the No Longer Bound 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. After the first 30 days, families come to campus for Sunday visits (including Family Recovery classes). Residents have weekly calls with a family member to help reinforce open communication in recovery. Ultimately, men have passes to go home on the weekends.
