Alumni In Action
Our Alumni express the experience, strength and hope that Renewal Lodge holds for the person still suffering.
As the nation’s only Mindfulness In Recovery (MIR)® Program, our clients enjoy the opportunity to create meaningful, life-long bonds. These relationships, formed as a result of life-changing experiences in treatment, are then further cultivated through the experiences shared as alumni.
“We make sure to let everyone know - as soon as they arrive - that this is about way more than sobriety.”
~ Tharin Smith, Director of Alumni
An Interview with Tharin Smith: Director of Alumni
Maintain an attitude of gratitude.
Stay connected to that which changed your life. Renewal Lodge should always remain a sacred place in your heart.
Stay connected to those that impacted positive changes in your life.
Don’t ever ‘settle for less’ again. Live the wonderful life you deserve!
Take nothing for granted…the little things are the big things.
We make sure to let everyone know – as soon as they arrive – that this is about way more than sobriety. If they can invest and be open to all that’s offered – a completely new life awaits them. Sobriety is just the by-product.

...Pretty much every place will promise you a “mind, body, soul” approach to recovery, but this is the only place I’ve been that truly delivers on that promise. Renewal Lodge’s program has a double-emphasis on Buddhist-inspired mindfulness skills and techniques, combined with a traditional Big Book/12 Step education.
...I loved all the scheduled meditations, the staff is fantastic and the food is good. I have never been to treatment before so I was anxious when I arrived. The facility, other patients and environment overall put my nerves at ease. I have had a great experience here and would highly recommend Renewal Lodge to my friends and family or anyone seeking treatment.
...I know that sounds dramatic but I came in here as a hopeless alcoholic with crushing depression and paralyzing anxiety I'm leaving this Sunday and I feel like a completely different person. I can't wait to start my life. They don't just sell sobriety here, but a way into true, meaningful, purposeful, lasting happiness
...Renewal Lodge helped me find that missing piece which was discovered by learning and practicing mindfulness. The MIR programming (Mindfulness in Recovery) was an absolute game changer. Anyone struggling to put the pieces together would benefit greatly from Renewal Lodge.
...the start of my time I was very guarded and scared to open up but I soon learned it was a safe haven with the meditation and mindfulness experience it has by far surpassed any other treatment plan in the past.
