Beginning the Admission Process
The primary requirement for admission to both the Rebound Men’s Program and the Dove’s Nest Women’s Program at the Charlotte Rescue Mission is that the individual seeking admission must call for themselves and participate in a telephone screening to determine their appropriateness for the facility. We understand the concern and frustration family members and friends may have regarding their loved opens, however, that individual must demonstrate some desire to enter treatment and call for admission themselves to begin the recovery process.
Our admission phone number is 704-333-HOPE ext. 501
Please call for yourself and include a return number where we can reach you when leaving a message. When speaking with admissions staff, you will participate in a screening interview. During the interview you will be asked about some of the following:
- Previous admissions to programs
- The last time you used drugs or alcohol
- The reason you are seeking treatment currently
- 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; you will be notified of any additional steps that need to be taken or given an admission date. 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. Being honest in your pre-screening interview will be helpful in successful admission on your admission date.
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)
- Have a 30-day supply of current medications with two refills
- Pass a medical screening conducted by a nurse at the facility
Once you are admitted to the program, you will be given information about the requirements of the program.
Charlotte Rescue Mission is a leader in providing free Christian-based residential recovery programs that help people struggling with the disease of addiction achieve long-term sobriety, find employment and stable housing, and restore and build healthy relationships.
In the 120-day structured program, residents will experience weekly individual counseling, group therapy, education classes, life skills training, Biblical application for emotional wounds, and sober support group development. Our multi-faceted approach ensures that our residents develop a deep understanding of the root causes of their addiction. In doing so, they learn not only how to cope with the pressures of staying drug and alcohol-free, but how to manage life scenarios that can trigger a relapse.
Located in the shadow of the Panther’s stadium, Rebound is our program for men. Rebound provides a faith-based, free, residential recovery program 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.
Located in West Charlotte, Dove’s Nest serves women and their children, ages 3-11. We realize addiction is a family disease and it touches every aspect of the family, including children. While at Dove’s Nest, children also receive clinical care to begin their healing process. We strive to help mothers gain the tools necessary to achieve long-term sobriety while preserving and strengthening bonds with their children. We do this with credentialed counselors working in tandem with the mother and child.
