Men's Programs

Rebound for Men


Rebound provides free Christian residential drug and recovery services for men who would not otherwise be able to afford such services. The program is modeled after the 12-Step Alcoholics Anonymous curriculum, but with one significant difference; by providing clinical substance abuse counseling within a Christian context, our program completion rates are twice the national average.


While we provide food, clothing and shelter, it’s always integrated within a minimum 120-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 120-day program begins with 30 days of intense counseling and education, followed by 90 days of continued group and individual counseling, instruction and training.


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.

Beginning the Admissions Process

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

You must call for yourself and if you leave a message, you must 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
  • The last time you used drugs or alcohol
  • 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.

Rebound graduates have several opportunities for continued support.


L.E.A.P. (Learning Empowerment Advancement Program) focuses on educational and vocational training programs. Residents work with a counselor to create L.E.A.P. plan which includes long-term and short-term goals. It also includes specific educational/vocational training program requirements and how they will finance their education and training.

Rebound 90-Day Extension

Our 90-day Extension focuses on securing stable employment. Residents work with their counselor and other resources to update their resume, practice job readiness skills, navigate public transportation and obtain appropriate clothing for job interviews.

Rebound Halfway House

Our halfway house serves men who have graduated from Rebound and found employment but still need affordable transitional living accommodations. Rebound Halfway House residents are required to attend a church of their choice in the community, remain active in an AA or NA group, and actively participate in group counseling sessions with the Rebound Halfway House Clinical Substance Abuse Recovery Counselor.
