ABOUT CHARLOTTE RESCUE MISSION – REBOUND
Based in Charlotte, N.C., Charlotte Rescue Mission is a private, non-profit organization that provides comprehensive, long-term treatment for individuals struggling with chemical dependency. Focused on sustained sobriety and self-sufficiency, Rebound is a faith-based, men’s-only program of the Charlotte Rescue Mission. To be admitted, clients must commit to at least 120 days of residential treatment, abused substances within 30 days prior to admittance, and pass an initial drug screening upon intake. Rebound does not provide on-site detoxification services.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Unique to Rebound, clients must call themselves to speak with an intake coordinator, rather than a friend or family member who calls on their behalf. The facility contends that the first step of recovery is for the individual to express their desire to change. Through this initial phone call, clinicians determine if the Rebound program is an appropriate program. Although the residential program is based on the practices of 12-Step, the faith-based program facilities the 12-step model of recovery in the context of Christian principles and philosophies. Clients attend Bible study classes, worship services, and spiritual classes, as well as attend 12-step meetings and perform “step-work.”
The 120-day program is provided in two phases. The first 30 days of residential treatment involves intensive counseling, 12-step work, and educational classes. Once a client completes the 30 days, the following 90 days of treatment also incorporates training and instruction to promote self-sufficiency upon discharge. Although the resident continues to participate in individual therapy, group counseling, and educational classes, clients also receive vocational and life skills training, as well as educational development classes.
Once a client completes the 120-day program, they may choose to continue into a 90-day extended care program for ongoing life skills development and vocational training or transition into Rebound’s sober living facility. While residing in Rebound’s halfway house, clients are required to attend 12-step meetings, participate in group counseling sessions, attend church, and obtain employment.
Led by a program director, Rebound employs a team of licensed substance abuse counselors, nurses, and facility technicians. The facility also operates with the support of volunteers, who may be clergy or individuals familiar with the recovery process and 12-Step.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
According to the facility’s website, Rebound provides food, clothing, and shelter to program participants.
