How long can I stay at Bonfire?
Our staff will work with residents to continually evaluate your needs and progress. A target length of stay is 6-12 months, but we do not impose a minimum or maximum commitment.
Can my family visit?
Yes, family can visit any time and use Glenn's Room (our first-level community space) to do so. Bonfire residents are free to leave our premises at any time outside of mandatory in-house meeting commitments, unless circumstances require that other arrangements are made. Residential areas are not available to family, significant others, or friends outside of our clientele.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not charge insurance for residency. The lab urinalysis testing that we utilize can charge NH Medicaid plans and most private insurance.
What medications can I take?
All prescribed medications must be documented during your intake and changes must be reported to our staff. Medications that are not prescribed to you but are found in your possession or in your urinalysis results are disallowed. Medications other than 200mg ibuprofen and aspirin must be approved by staff on a case-by-case basis. The only workout supplements allowed are protein and must be approved by staff prior to use. Pre-workout drinks, Creatine, supplements, and testosterone boosters are strictly prohibited. All prescribed medications will be self-administered.
Residents may utilize buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) only as prescribed.
Use of CBD oil is allowed provided the product does not contain a traceable level of THC.
What should I bring?
Please see our list of things to bring/not bring to our house.
What if I use or drink during my stay?
We do not allow use of alcohol, illicit substances, or prescription drugs that are not prescribed to you (or at a higher level than you are prescribed). Any resident suspected of drinking or misusing drugs must submit to a breathalyzer and urine analysis test. If recent drinking or drug use is confirmed, the resident may face prompt dismissal from our program and premises. Staff will work to ensure a safe transition to an appropriate care provider, loved one, or local shelter. Discharged residents may re-apply for residency after 90 days from their discharge date.
What if I miss a payment?
We are constantly working to keep financial pressure off of our residents and their families. Our weekly cost to residents reflects the minimum with which we can operate and offer the best possible services. We hold our residents accountable for their personal responsibilities -- after all, accountability is a key component in one's recovery. We may take late payments on a case-by-case basis, but we will not take them lightly or often. We WILL accept credit cards and we encourage residents to pay on a monthly basis to avoid budgeting-related troubles.
Do you accept dually-diagnosed individuals?
Yes, conditionally. Further information will have to be provided and decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis. Though we are not a licensed facility capable of accommodating certain cases, we will refer you to the appropriate care source.
Are you a religious organization?
No. We promote principles and practices that might in some contexts be called “spiritual” (i.e. mindful of self and others).
Are you affiliated with any 12-Step Fellowships?
We are not. However, many residents do utilize a 12-step pathway of recovery and may bandy about references to concepts in 12-step culture and literature.
