Requirements For Admission

An application to the Colony of Mercy may only be obtained by the applicant himself by calling the Intake Office at 848-227-4591 or submitting our online pre-screening test here.

The Intake Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

You can follow the directions for the online pre-screen or call Terri Russomano at 848-227-4591 X1046 for a phone screening to determine eligibility for the program. If the applicant qualifies, the application will be sent/emailed or faxed. The Colony of Mercy does not have a detox facility. Once the man engages in the application process and submits the application to the Colony of Mercy, he will be placed on the waitlist. We look forward to serving you as you pursue a new life in Christ.

Any interested parties are encouraged to call the intake office for information only. You will not be able to apply or request an application for someone else.

Before an individual is accepted into the Colony of Mercy, he must agree to the following requirements:

  • Must be open to the biblical perspective for help, hope, and healing.
  • Must be personally and sincerely seeking help and willing to submit himself to the program authorities.
  • Commit to abstinence from all tobacco products as well as drugs and alcohol. Only life-sustaining medications prescribed by a physician are permitted and are distributed by staff.

The completed application must be returned with a non-refundable application fee of $500. (Please make the check out to America’s Keswick.)

All rules for admission apply equally, without regard to race, color, or national origin. Non-denominational, nonsectarian.
