Rehab Programs

Find Lasting Recovery from Drugs & Alcohol Abuse

Repair. Rebuild. Renew

How does Renewal Lodge prepare its clients for sobriety?

We integrate mindfulness and emotional intelligence. Powerful skills they never knew they needed.

Recovery begins in rehab programs, but it continues to be a long-term journey toward wellness. It involves making choices and commitments, managing intense feelings, and establishing healthy relationships.

Rehab programs with holistic treatments address all facets of the individual, preparing them to handle challenges, cope with stress and give themselves the care that they need as they travel down the path of recovery.

The following services are the keystones of our rehab programs and create a foundation for a successful recovery:

Mindfulness in Recovery + 12 Steps
Family Program
Emotional Intelligence Training
Discharge and Aftercare Planning


Start with Mindfulness

The Mindfulness in Recovery(MIR)® treatment program helps clients connect with the parts of themselves that feel lost. This program encourages awareness and nonjudgmental acceptance so that you can build on what you have instead of operating from a place of lack.

People thrive when they integrate their core values, beliefs, and emotions with their actions. The tools that you’ll gain through the Mindfulness in Recovery program will help you maintain this alignment throughout your recovery.


Integrating Family Support

Although many clients have tried to deal with their addiction privately, support is essential to get them through rehab programs and into a fulfilling life after treatment.

Addiction affects everyone who is close to the individual. Therefore, it’s important for those people to access support and resources. Our family program teaches loved ones how to care for themselves and best support the person with the addiction.


Practice Emotional Regulation Skills

Emotional intelligence is a skill that allows you to manage and express your feelings in a healthy, productive way. This skill becomes impaired when you’re struggling with addiction because substance abuse inhibits a healthy relationship with emotions. Moreover, drug or alcohol use may exacerbate negative emotions and present them as triggers that lead to detrimental behaviors.

As you develop your emotional intelligence, you’ll be able to incorporate it into everyday life. Treatment won’t make you stop having strong emotions. However, it will help you identify them and manage them appropriately as they arise.


Leave With Courage

Our rehab programs include aftercare and discharge planning so that you know what to expect as you move forward on the road to recovery.

We tailor the aftercare plans to fit your needs, putting your own wisdom, skills, and resources into your hands so that you can lead a meaningful and fulfilling life.

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
