Formula Character Max Value - is there a way to break free from the 5K character limit?

A cohort of mine is working on a custom formula in salesforce and is experiencing difficulty as the formula is beyond the scope able to be handled (he believes the limit to be somewhere around 5K). He has tried to break up the formula into separate components, but once again has run into difficulty with it being beyond the scope of things. His actual question to me is:

I think what I want to do is break it up into seperate formulas, but even referencing those formulas makes it too long - is there any way to reference the actual VALUE in a formula field and not the formula itself from another formula?

Has anyone out there in our salesforce universe experienced a similar situation and if so, can you help out with how you implemented the solution? Thanks!

Did you ever find a way around this problem with the 5000 character limit with formulas?   I have a similiar problem.  :(
