~ Tommy Kreitz

“ changed my life.”

I stayed 60 days in treatment and it changed my life… I learned how to be a better person through mindfulness and a 12 step program. I would recommend it to anyone looking for their first or last rehab.

4 Steps To Lasting Recovery in Drug Rehab


Mindfulness In Recovery Treatment

Years of addiction have fundamentally altered the way that your brain works. The first step to recovery is understanding–and observing–those changes.

Mindfulness in Recovery (MIR) is designed to help our patients identify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that result from them. This will allow them to (re)build better, more productive pathways throughout their sobriety.


Family Program

Addiction is a family disease. Most inpatient rehabs in the Houston, TX, area only treat a single patient.

Renewal Lodge understands that successful addiction treatment must include help for the family members that have also suffered through years of substance abuse.

Our Family Program will help you and your family reconnect and understand your path toward a sober life.


Emotional Intelligence

Drugs and alcohol are often used to numb or otherwise avoid difficult emotions.

This creates behavioral patterns that can be difficult to break, which is why emotional intelligence and identifying your feelings as they emerge is a cornerstone of treatment at Renewal Lodge.

This awareness will help you identify–and avoid–potential hazards to your sober life.


Discharge & Aftercare

Your addiction treatment doesn’t stop after 30, 60, or even 90 days.

Renewal Lodge will help you develop a plan for continuing your sobriety after discharge. We continue to offer support and assistance for our alumni.

We’ll help you create a customized aftercare plan during your treatment that helps you continue your path to a sober life.

Addiction doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Houston substance abuse statistics show that substance abuse disorder is often accompanied by co-occurring mental health disorders.

This means that successful addiction treatment needs to include mental health interventions as well.

At Renewal Lodge, we take a holistic approach to substance abuse treatment that includes the mind, body, and soul. The foundation of that is diagnosing and treating mental health disorders that exacerbate substance abuse.

Renewal Lodge is more than a drug rehab. We also get to the root cause of addiction to address its causes, enabling our clients to move towards a more stable and sober life after treatment.

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
