Campus Work Collaboration Program

Transforming Lives Beyond Sobriety

100% of No Longer Bound Residents Have Job Placement At Graduation

A unique aspect of No Longer Bound is that residents go to work each day. On campus workplace environments foster accountability and build work ethic while providing job skills training. The auto shop, facilities team, culinary team, Development & Marketing department and special projects create opportunities for both personal and professional growth. 

As an added bonus, revenue from our two industries—No Longer Bound Cars and NLB Thrift—covers 88% of our administrative costs, creating a sustainable, affordable recovery model.

“Everything you learn at No Longer Bound, you can use when you leave. Take advantage of this opportunity and look at it as an investment. No Longer Bound not only saved my life, but they made me who I am today. Trust me, you will look back on this time with a smile on your face.”

ANDREW

“I remember it being tough to work everyday at NLB in my industry while examining and processing some of the most painful things of my past. But that prepared me to have the work ethic and work quality I have today.”

ANDREW S.

“I now have the tools to be a good father, a good son, and a good husband.”

BRANDON

“When I walked onto No Longer Bound’s campus, I was a broken, lost and frustrated man. No Longer Bound has been a temporary home to me, where I have been able to physically and mentally heal, but also grow into the man God intended me to be. ”
