Find Lasting Recovery at Renewal Lodge

Alcohol Treatment Near Tyler, TX

It’s not a rehab. It’s a fresh start.

Lasting Freedom Starts Here

Alcoholism is Frequently A Symptom. We Treat the Root Cause.

As a disease, addiction is unique. Alcoholism often begins as a symptom or coping mechanism for mental illness, trauma, or emotional dysregulation. Over time, addiction becomes a separate–but closely related–illness. This means that comprehensive alcohol treatment should also address the underlying causes of the disease.

Renewal Lodge is a drug and alcohol rehab center that offers dual-diagnoses treatment that’s grounded in best practices for substance abuse and behavioral health treatment.

Our Mindfulness in Recovery (MIR) program is the only one like it in the nation. We treat alcoholism as both a disease and a symptom of larger mental health problems.

We’ve built our program to give our patients everything they need for long-term sobriety, mind, body, and spirit.

Recovery is possible. Let us help.

Signs of Alcohol Addiction

Alcohol addiction, also known as alcoholism or alcohol use disorder, manifests in a variety of behavioral, physical, and psychological signs. It’s essential to recognize these signs early to seek timely intervention. Prolonged and excessive alcohol consumption can lead to the development of addiction, making individuals prioritize drinking over other responsibilities and activities. Some of the most common signs include:
  • Increased Tolerance: Needing more alcohol to achieve the same effects or feeling reduced effects when drinking the same amount.
  • Withdrawal Symptoms: Experiencing nausea, sweating, shaking, or anxiety when not drinking.
  • Loss of Control: Drinking more than intended or being unable to cut down despite wanting to.
  • Neglect of Responsibilities: Failing to meet obligations at work, school, or home due to drinking.
  • Social Isolation: Withdrawing from social or recreational activities because of alcohol consumption.
  • Continuous Use: Drinking despite being aware of its harmful consequences on one’s health, relationships, or work.
  • Craving: A strong desire or urge to drink when not consuming alcohol.

The Dangers of Untreated Alcohol Addiction

Untreated addiction, especially to substances like alcohol, poses grave risks not only to the individual’s physical and mental well-being but also to their overall quality of life.

Physically, prolonged addiction can lead to a host of health complications, from liver damage and cardiovascular diseases to weakened immune systems and increased risk of accidents.

Mentally, addiction often coexists with other conditions like depression, anxiety, and increased suicidal tendencies.

Beyond health, untreated addiction can strain personal relationships, leading to isolation, divorce, or estrangement from loved ones.

Moreover, the longer an addiction persists without intervention, the harder the road to recovery becomes, emphasizing the critical importance of timely treatment.

Research indicates that alcohol can act as a precursor to the use of harder-to-control substances.

Research suggests that in East Texas,  drinking alcohol with parents is common, which is cited as an initial step toward the abuse of stronger substances, and is frequently considered normal.

In East Texas, it’s reported that 29.5 percent of students have consumed alcohol in the last 30 days.

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 Alcohol Treatment


Mindfulness In Recovery Treatment

Thoughts and feelings lead to behaviors, and behaviors become habits. It can be difficult to even see this happening after years of doing the same thing.

Our Mindfulness in Recovery (MIR) program will help our patients identify their feelings and how they lead to behaviors, giving them the skills they need to maintain long-term sobriety.


Family Program

Addiction has likely touched almost every person close to you. As you recover, those individuals need to develop the skills to understand your recovery and begin their own.

The Family Program at Renewal Lodge helps give you and those close to you the chance to begin healing and to reforge the bonds that alcoholism has broken.


Emotional Intelligence

Feelings are complicated, and they motivate behaviors and habits. Understanding your emotions and those of other people in your life will help with long-term sobriety and happiness.

Renewal Lodge teaches our patients the skills and awareness they need to understand and control their feelings and how they affect long-term behavior, including sobriety.


Discharge & Aftercare

In-patient alcohol treatment is the first step on the road to recovery. After discharge, you’ll continue to need support.

Renewal Lodge works closely with our patients to help design an aftercare plan that will work for their unique needs. From halfway houses to meetings, we’ll identify the resources that will help you maintain your sobriety.

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
