Find Lasting Recovery at Renewal Lodge

Alcohol Rehab in the Longview, TX Area

It’s not a rehab. It’s a fresh start.

Lasting Freedom Starts Here

The only Mindfulness in Recovery (MIR)® Program in the Nation

Addiction is a complicated disease that manifests differently in each individual sufferer. Often, alcoholism starts as a method to cope with life, relationships, or work. It’s often accompanied by underlying mental health or behavioral problems.

Substance use disorder affects a person’s emotional and intellectual development as well. This makes addiction treatment difficult. Alcoholics often need a treatment plan unique to their needs, delivered compassionately and with care.

Renewal Lodge has built a recovery program from the ground up to provide that care. We’re the only Mindfulness in Recovery (MIR) program available in the nation, and we intertwined skill building, mindfulness, the 12 steps, and mental health treatment into a single program.

When you leave Renewal Lodge, you won’t just be a newly sober person. You’ll be a newly sober person with the foundational skills you need to stay sober.

A One-Of-A-Kind Approach To Recovery


Drugs and alcohol dull the awareness of your emotions. This is often purposeful. This often means that alcoholics have problems identifying and naming their feelings without judgment. Establishing a mindfulness practice will help you to understand yourself and your emotions better, and it’s a cornerstone of recovery at Renewal Lodge.

The 12 Steps

Twelve-step programs have a reputation as one of the most successful treatment methods currently available. They’re vital to recovery around the globe and have helped millions of people find freedom from addiction. Renewal Lodge incorporates the Twelve Steps with mindfulness and mental health treatment to help our patients recover.

Dual Diagnosis Care

Alcoholism is often a method of coping with mental health disorders, emotional problems, or dysfunctional relationships. Renewal Lodge is a dual-diagnosis facility that offers cognitive behavioral therapy alongside other mental health treatment options. Our counselors will help you treat the root causes of your addiction, laying a foundation for long-term sobriety.

4 Steps To Lasting Recovery


Mindfulness In Recovery Treatment

Alcoholism often begins when a person uses alcohol as their primary coping mechanism for stress or emotional regulation.

Alcohol deadens a person’s feelings, allowing them to ignore them. This leaves them in a developmental void, unable to identify or understand their own mind.

The mindfulness practice at Renewal Lodge is designed to help teach recovering alcoholics how to pay attention to and identify their feelings.

This gives our patients a foundational skillset to aid them throughout the rest of their lives.

It’s an incredibly valuable tool that, when intertwined with the 12 steps, is a powerful means of long-term recovery.


Family Program

Your addiction has undoubtedly affected your family and close relationships. Just like you, your family is suffering from the fallout of addiction.

To fully support you, your family also needs time to heal. Our family program has been designed to provide them with a foundation to help them as you enter early sobriety.

The program will give you and your loved ones the tools you need to build and rebuild relationships that have suffered over the course of your addiction.


Emotional Intelligence

While mindfulness can help identify your emotions, emotional intelligence can help you understand why you’re experiencing them.

Emotional awareness goes hand-in-hand with mindfulness, and at Renewal Lodge, they form a large part of the skillset we impart to our patients.

Renewal Lodge gives our patients the tools they need to understand their feelings and those of people around them, enabling them to build strong relationships.


Discharge & Aftercare

Inpatient alcohol rehab is often a good first step to long-term sobriety. Your next steps are equally important.

Our counselors work with each patient to develop a post-discharge plan that paves the way for successful sobriety–long-term.

We’ll help you find outpatient programs, sober living, and whatever other resources you need to be successful, ensuring you have a plan that caters to your unique needs.

Addiction and Mental Illness are often Intertwined. We Treat Both.

Mental Health & Addiction Treatment Center

Addiction is a disease, and it has a complicated and unique pathology. It manifests differently in everyone who suffers from it.

Addiction is often accompanied by mental health and emotional problems. It causes arrested development, leaving addicts and alcoholics unprepared to handle their own emotions or understand those of the people around them.

We’ve built our program from the ground up to provide our patients with the behavioral and addiction treatment they need for successful long-term sobriety.

We take a holistic approach to recovery that incorporates the mind, body, and spirit, working alongside our patients and their families to give them the skillset they need to live not just a sober life but a fulfilling one as well.

The Right Environment is Vital to Successful Recovery

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
