4 Steps To Lasting Recovery


Mindfulness In Recovery Treatment

Addiction is often a copying mechanism people use to try to manage mental health issues and intense emotions.

This hinders people’s ability to process and understand their thoughts and feelings. Our Mindfulness in Recovery (MIR) program is designed to teach essential skills. These skills include assessing one’s feelings, identifying triggers, managing thought patterns, and more.

Mindfulness helps rebuild healthy neural pathways in the brain.


Family Program

Addiction’s effects spread far beyond the individual. Families also are hurt. Most San Antonio substance abuse centers only treat the individual.

Renewal Lodge knows that the family must be involved in the healing process in order for successful addiction treatment.

We offer family programming so your family can understand your disease and help in recovery.


Emotional Intelligence

Drugs are often used as a way to escape difficult emotions. Our drug addiction treatment center helps you identify and understand these emotions.

This is a critical part of long term recovery. We equip you with the tools to work through your emotions and heal.

We teach emotional intelligence along with mindfulness so you can develop healthier coping strategies.


Discharge & Aftercare

Inpatient drug rehab is the first step to healing. Maintaining long-term sobriety takes additional steps.

Renewal Lodge creates an outcare treatment plan customized for you. This is critical to maintaining long-term sobriety.

Our Unique Approach To Recovery


Mindfulness is fundamental for recovery. We help our patients recognize thoughts, emotions and triggers that contribute to emotional distress and relapse. We equip our patients with navigating life beyond rehab.

The 12-Steps

The 12-Step program outlined in Alcoholic Anonymous is clinically proven. It has helped thousands of people achieve successful recovery. This program is the core of recovery at Renewal Lodge.

Dual Diagnosis Care

Addiction is often used to cope with mental health issues. Renewal Lodge offers dual diagnosis treatment which treats mental illness alongside addiction. This helps lead to a more successful recovery.

Serving Patients In The San Antonio Area

Your environment plays a critical role in your recovery. The place you experienced active addiction is full of triggers like people and places. This makes it difficult to get and stay sober.

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
