Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Adults

Located minutes outside of beautiful Austin, TX, our doors are open to adult men and women struggling with mental health and addiction disorders. As the nation’s only Mindfulness In Recovery (MIR)® Program, Renewal Lodge delivers a holistic recovery experience that helps our clients discover and connect with their values, achieve and sustain long-term recovery, and lead a more authentic life of excellence.

Addiction: A Treatable Mental Health Disorder

Whether it crept in quietly or arrived with a crash, addiction has made its way into your life. This is a difficult realization to process and has likely left you reeling. Perhaps you have spent months or years avoiding it, making excuses, and putting treatment off for another day. Maybe you have known and have tried to overcome it before without success and have given up hope that a treatment program will ever work. You are feeling lost and unsure of your options — you want to get sober and get your life back but taking the first step toward recovery seems overwhelming.

If you are here, reading this and seeing yourself in these words, you are welcome at Renewal Lodge. Our specialty lies in intensive, short-term — 30- to 90-day — programs designed for individuals who are ready to dive deep into the psychological and physical healing required to overcome addiction for good.

Renewal Lodge - Substance Abuse Treatment

Dynamic Short-Term Approach

Renewal Lodge seeks to be the most affordable, dual diagnosis treatment program in the nation. As a 30 to 90-day residential program specializing in mental health and addiction disorders, we emphasize dynamic results over short-term timeframes.

While studies suggest that more time in treatment produces better outcomes, not everyone has the ability to enroll in a long-term residential treatment facility. Fortunately, we have developed a one-of-a-kind program designed exclusively for those who must complete treatment on a short-term basis.

Treating the Unique Individual

We know that everyone experiences addiction and mental health differently. 

At Renewal Lodge, our emphasis is on treating individuals who may be struggling with one or more of the following substances:

Our clinical team members believe in treating our client’s emotional and mental well-being too. Some of the co-occurring disorders we treat are: 

Renewal Lodge provides residential treatment for substance abuse and mental health disorders. Our services include full evaluations, mental health screening, medication management, onsite nursing, addiction medicine, individualized therapy, mindfulness training, discharge planning, family program, and more!

Renewal Lodge - What Makes Us Different

Our Trauma-Informed Approach

The Renewal Lodge program provides trauma-informed care that allows our clients to heal from issues influencing their addiction and mental health.

As studies suggest, many individuals develop substance use disorders due to traumatic events in their life. These events may have caused stress, sadness, isolation or anxiety. While this list is not exhaustive, some traumatic experiences may include the death of a loved one, the loss of an important relationship, a debilitating injury or illness, even an accident or assault. As these hardships go unresolved, an individual may turn to drugs or alcohol to help cope with the various symptoms associated with the traumatic event.

Our commitment at Renewal Lodge is to maintain an environment of safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness and empowerment. We believe trauma-informed care promotes resilience in our clients, and helps them best identify their strengths as they travel down the path to greater healing.

Three-Pronged Healing: Mind, Body, & Spirit

As a holistic program featuring dual diagnosis treatment plans, Renewal Lodge offers a comprehensive method of healing that ensures a longer-lasting recovery. Our primary mission is to deliver a world-class treatment experience that addresses the individual’s entire self: mind, body, and spirit.

To accomplish this, we incorporate evidence-based therapies, addiction medicine, mindfulness, and 12 step immersion as the core of our program. During the course of treatment, Renewal Lodge clients learn how to live an authentic, mindful life that is in alignment with their core values.

If you or someone you love is suffering from addiction or other mental health disorders, please contact our caring, compassionate staff so that we can begin the process of healing.

Dear Renewal Lodge Visitors,

My name is John Bruna, co-founder of the Mindfulness in Recovery® Institute, and more importantly, a grateful member of the recovery community. I am incredibly fortunate to have found my recovery in 1984. Of course, I did not achieve continuous recovery through willpower or my own efforts, but through the guidance and caring support of countless others that selflessly taught me how to live through the 12 Steps.

My journey of recovery brought this once homeless, shame-based, traumatized, insecure young man to a life far beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I discovered self-worth, the joy of helping others, the gifts of parenting and grandparenting, and most importantly the ability to live a meaningful and purposeful life with integrity.

One of the greatest gifts of recovery is that I have the opportunity to give back and help others discover their self-worth, dignity, and the skills to fully live lives that they find truly meaningful. This is the inspiration for developing the skills of Mindfulness in Recovery® (MIR) to meet the needs of new generations struggling with alcohol and other substance use disorders. MIR is a set of evidence-based skills designed to help people fully integrate their tools of recovery in ways that are personalized, practical, and in alignment with their deepest values.

While we train counselors and therapists throughout the United States and abroad, I personally have chosen to work directly with the amazing team and clients at Renewal Lodge to develop the model MIR 12-step program for the nation. I choose Renewal Lodge because of the vision of its mission and the dedication of its team. Renewal Lodge is an extremely rare environment in which the staff embodies the very mindfulness and 12-step practices and skills they offer their clients. The results have been beyond my expectations. It is an honor to be here and I treasure my personal time with every client I meet.

With Gratitude,

John Bruna
