Admission to Rebound begins with one phone call.


The Primary requirement for admission to the Rebound Men’s Program at the Charlotte Rescue Mission is that the individual seeking admission must call for himself and participate in a telephone screening to determine his appropriateness for the facility. We understand the concern and frustration family members and friends may have regarding the chemically dependent person, however, the chemically dependent person must demonstrate some desire to enter treatment, and calling for admission himself begins the recovery process.

Additional Admission Requirements:

  • Abuse of a mood or mind altering substance within the previous 30 days.
  • Commitment to be compliant upon admission with program structure and policies for the entire 90 day + time period.
  • Must be physically capable of going up and down several flights of stairs.
  • Must not be on intensive probation.   If the individual is on regular probation, then their probation officer must fax a letter stating that they have permission to attend our program.  

For Potential Residents

Admission to Rebound begins with a phone call.

Our admission phone number is 704-333-HOPE ext 501.

You must call for yourself and if you leave a message, it has to include a return number where we can reach you.

When you call or your call is returned, you will participate in a screening interview. During the interview you will be asked about some of the following:

  • Previous admissions to Rebound if you have been here before
  • The last time you used
  • Reason you are seeking treatment at this time
  • Your current legal status
  • Your current medical condition
  • Your current psychiatric condition
  • Your ability to participate in therapeutic work
  • Any anticipated needs beyond what the program offers

Based on the information you provide, an admission appointment will be scheduled. Please understand that the admission date is provisional – meaning that having an appointment is not a guarantee of acceptance into the program. Additional screenings take place once you get here. If you want to get into the program, you have to be honest in the interview process.
In order to be admitted on the day of your appointment, you must:

Be able to pass a breathalyzer and urine drug screen (there are no exceptions for this)
Bring a social security CARD or voucher and  a VALID state ID or driver’s license
Pass a medical screening conducted by a nurse at the facility

Once you are admitted to the program, you will complete paperwork, participate in orientation, participate in group discussions, and attend in-house functions like chapel and 12 Step meetings until a bed becomes available.
