The recovery process is a hard and long road and we want every person to get the help they need. However the Nehemiah Men’s Home might not be a good fit for everyone who applies. Please be honest with every question that is asked during the interview process.

If you do not have an ID, you will need to obtain one before you can be fully accepted.

The Interview Process

After your application is reviewed, you will receive a call to set up your phone interview. We will ask you a few more questions to see if Next Step is a good fit for you. From that point, if there is a bed available and under the advisement of the director, we will schedule an in-person interview. After this the director will decide whether or not you have been accepted or denied. Remember, there are many different recovery programs out there and we will do our best to find a fit for you.

Acceptance can be delayed depending on bed availability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions that have been asked by applicants in the past that should help you with the application and your decision to apply to the Nehemiah Men’s Home.

Can I have a girlfriend or companion while I am in the program?

You can only continue a relationship if you are married and it is a relationship that will not hinder your recovery process. Anything else is prohibited. You cannot continue or form a romantic relationship while at the Next Step Men’s Home.

What if I don't have any income?

That is ok. We understand that most will not have any income but we would like to know if you do.

What medications do you allow?

We do not allow any narcotic or psychotropic medications. We do allow any medications you need for blood pressure, diabetes, and/or any non-narcotic medications needed with the exception of psychotropic and behavioral medication.

What if I don't have a trade?

That is ok. We just want to know what you are skilled at, or what you like to do. We do this so that we can plug you in to the right job and/or volunteer position.

How do I know I am a good fit?

If you are willing to accept help at any cost and if you long for a closer relationship with Jesus Christ, then you will be a good fit for the Next Step Men’s Home.

Why is it important for me to dedicate one year?

Statistics say that it takes at least one year for the mind to become clear enough for a person to choose, on their own, to stop using drugs or alcohol. It will take longer than one year to recover but one year of discipleship and accountability will increase your chances of success.
