Admission to Rebound and Dove’s Nest begins with a phone call.
Rebound provides Christian residential drug and recovery services for homeless men. It has over twice the completion rate of the national average. The program is modeled after the 12-step Alcoholics Anonymous curriculum, but with one significant difference. Charlotte Rescue Mission emphasizes Jesus Christ, without whom life-changing transformation cannot occur.
While we provide food, clothing and shelter, it’s always integrated within a minimum 90-day program. This multi-faceted approach ensures that our residents develop a deep understanding of their problems, including the root causes. In doing so, they learn not only how to cope with the pressures of staying drug and alcohol free, but how to manage the life scenarios that can trigger relapse.
The 90-day program begins with 30 days of intense counseling and education, followed by 60 days of continued group and individual counseling, instruction and training. Homeless men complete the Rebound program at approximately twice the rate of the national average. Click here to learn more about Rebound.
Dove’s Nest, Charlotte Rescue Mission’s women’s recovery program, opened its doors in 1992 with a 12-bed residential home in the heart of historic Dilworth. Now, a new 120-bed facility on the city’s west side provides a structured, yet loving and stable living environment, with a dedicated staff aimed at helping women understand and deal with the core issues of addiction as a disease.
The program provides a loving, highly-structured Christian environment to help women understand and deal with the core issues of their alcohol and/or drug addiction. The intense 120-day program focuses on spiritual, physical, social and psychological recovery. Within each of these areas, issues of shame, isolation, all types of abuse, codependency and lack of boundaries and structure are addressed. After the 120 day intensive program residents may opt for an eight month extension in our continuing care division.
The program is women-specific, with a staff dealing with all women’s issues including mental, emotional, physical and sexual abuse. Our residents come to Dove’s Nest to rest, mend, heal and gain a new direction in their lives. Click here to learn more about Dove’s Nest.
