I was introduced to Renaissance Recovery Center in June of 2020 when my husband decided to join their IOP program. As a spouse of someone who has battled addiction of all sorts for our entire 18yr relationship, I was not very convinced that this program would change anything but he was so sure this was where he needed to be so I agreed to it. I am so thankful that I chose to support my husband and his decision to partake in this program because it completely changed our life for the better. For the first time since we were 18yrs old, I finally saw the man I fell in love with coming back to life. This program, Steve, Dan, Lindsay, Nils and many of the men that my husband met in this group truly saved his life and our family. Ryan just celebrated 8months sober from everything and on 2/17/21 he celebrates 1 yr sober from opiates ( which was his achilles heel) Renaissance took the time to invest in Ryan and Ryan gave his all to Renaissance and the outcome of this relationship is one that changed his course in life for the better. Ryan finally got down to the core of why he did things that he did and learned how to cope in different ways which led him back to a much stronger relationship with God and a core group of men that he continues to grow with and support throughout their individual recoveries. I am forever grateful to Steve and Lindsay especially as they played such a HUGE ROLE in helping Ryan deal with all his trauma and addiction. If you or someone you love struggles with addiction, I highly recommend Renaissance!! I have never seen anyone more genuine in their calling to help others as what Steve and his team are to the individuals in their programs. Thank you for saving my family and showing Ryan what it means to LIVE a full and meaningful life outside of addiction.

"Sick and tired of being sick and tired". "Wanna get clean and sober but don't know how". These were my thoughts to myself before coming to Renaissance in June of 2020. Renaissance was literally a God-Send for me and my family. I had struggled with addiction(s) for almost 20 years and it was destroying my life. I did a lot of research about different programs but ALWAYS kept coming back to Renaissance for some reason. After my initial call with Steve I understood why right away. The team is truly one of a kind and the family atmosphere is felt right away. Steve, Lindsay, Dan, Chad, and Nils all will forever have an impact on my life. The thoughtfulness, caring, genuine emotional support, and knowledge that they provided and gave to me is exactly what I was looking for in a program. Words can't express what their program did for me and the gift of recovery/sobriety that they helped me gain for the 1st time in almost 20 years. I will always be in recovery and with their help and support I have a GREAT foundation and tools to work with to continue what they started from here on out. From the bottom of my heart (My wife and soon to be 4 boys hearts) I/we say THANK YOU for helping me get my life back and so much more!!Ryan Wisniewski

Renaissance is everything and more when it came to my recovery. Steve, Dan, Nils, Chad & Lindsay are the real deal. They care about you, they care about your well being, they care about you untangling and un-rooting what causes us to use.I was a highly functioning alcoholic for the better part of 20+ years and through their guidance I was able to dig deep, self reflect through their teachings to understand that I didn’t have to hold onto my personal shame, turmoil, anger, anxiety and every negative adjective that describes what we go through as addicts and was able to work through and release that pain so I didn’t keep running back to the bottle. They saved my life and I mean that literally. I had the pleasure of making some great friendships and create a brotherhood with some of the men I was in recovery in as well and we are active in our community still and it all stemmed from Renaissance.Thank you Steve for everything. Phenomenal leader who leads with love (but not weak) and truly cares about you and helping you lift every burden that we’ve carried for all those years. I’m forever grateful.

I came to Renaissance bruised and battered by my own doing. Monday, January 4, 2021 is my last day of IOP. I now look back and see how different of a person I am. This is thanks to Chad, Dan, Steve, and Nils (and team). These men are the epitome of compassion, passion, and love (true Agape). I bonded with each and every one of them as they work tirelessly to help bring recovery and peace to us all. I have met amazing brothers in this program. I will never forget speaking to Steve on the morning of September 8, 2020. He immediately took me in as one of his own (he called me "brother", which had such a profound impact on my soul). I could feel his love and I knew immediately that this was my message from God (whom I was without for many years). I look forward to being in the aftercare program. I feel as though these gentlemen are an extension of my family. I am forever grateful for everything they have taught me and for helping me to become the better man I am today.

Steve and Dan and the rest of the crew at RR are the most sincere and caring men I have ever met. They truly cared for me and the other people that I served with! From this group, I have made 8 new brothers and friends for life! We have continued on, after the program, to take care of each other... there is no greater reward than sobriety and the unity of brotherhood which RR has provided me/us.... Forever grateful RobH!!!

The staff is amazing. I don't know what is was that they did exactly, but I have 1 year sober. My life has completely turned around because of renaissance. They create this amazing feeling that we are all in this together, and more like part of a family, than a patient. I would recommend this place to anyone who can't see the light at the end. Anyone who has tried other things before with no success, and thought there wasn't an answer. This place will help you get control over your own life. It will lead you in the right direction.

I've struggled with addiction throughout my entire 20s. Its been a tough journey to say the least! I've been to many treatment centers and Renaissance Recovery is without a doubt the BEST treatment center I've ever been to. Their staff is so genuine and caring it can't be put into words. Steve, Dan, and Lindsey are all amazing people. Looking back I wish I made more use of them while I had them in my life but I just wasn't ready for recovery at that time in my life. Doesn't take anything away from their amazing work. Literally all the other patients were super nice people too and for the first time in years I felt like I wasn't alone. Enough nice things cant be said..these people are great. Id trust them with my loved ones in a heart beat..if you have the option of outpatient for yourself or loved one this is the one. At first I was hesitant to start recovery because I didn’t feel my addiction was as severe and I thought I could overcome Alcoholism on my own. Once I started with Renaissance I immediately felt surrounded by people who genuinely cared about me as a person and wanted to help me along my journey to recovery. I quickly realized that this was the right place to receive the help I needed to recover and that I couldn’t do it on my own. They gave me the necessary support and helped me realize that I couldn’t overcome my addiction by myself. They allowed me to dig deep into what would trigger me to drink and helped me to understand more about myself and the reasons I was drinking. I felt educated about this disease and it made me realize I wasn’t alone in my recovery. I feel like a new person and it gave me power and confidence to move on and be myself again. Steve and Chad helped me to open up and admit that I needed to do this for myself and I couldn’t do it for others. During group meetings I felt comfortable and connected to other people going through the similar situations. It enabled me to express my struggles and feelings about this addiction that I had never shared with anyone. Before coming to Renaissance Recovery, I did not open up or trust people as I do now and it has allowed me to build closer relationships with family and friends. I would highly recommend the Renaissance team because they truly provide an individualized experience and care about every person that comes through their door.

Renaissance is an incredible establishment!! Every single counselor will get to know you, and help you with your own personal struggles. I’ve never met more caring people in any other recovery program. This is the first time that I have truly been confident in my recovery and have began to understand the process! Almost one year sober and the counselors still check in on me! I can’t say thank you enough to Steve, Lindsay, Dan, and Chad! You guys are amazing!!

I have worked for several other treatment providers and renaissance by far is the best treatment facility and is my forever home. I chased this job for years and am glad to be part of such an amazing team. Fundamental to my recovery are qualified counselors especially Steve Brown and treatment centers as effective Renaissance Recovery Center. I am in long term recovery through your efforts!

Finding Renaissance Recovery Center was a Godsend for our family! My daughter was in a safe and supportive environment that helped her succeed in her recovery. The staff are amazing...Chad, Lindsay and Steve, I can't say enough about about what they do. They're a Family, and they treat not only their clients as family but all the rest of us that are involved and going through this our loved ones!!
02:23 14 Nov 19
I would highly recommend Renissance! It’s a family that you never knew you had or needed. They saved my life and I am forever grateful.

I have known Steve Brown for many years and am aware of the work they do at Renaissance. Steve is extremely passionate about what he does and cares a great deal about those he works with. At alumni meetings you can really feel the bond of brother/sisterhood between those who have gone through the program, and the gratitude and love they have for Steve. I would recommend him and his program to anybody!

Exactly what I dreamed for in my life to get me off the path of destruction when I was in desperate need for help, where I thought no one would be able to help me no friends or family could talk me out of my stubbornness to have drugs or alcohol be the resort to fix my problems. I had to be all in when I got to renaissance to want to get better and 9 months later I still believe it to be the greatest blessing in my 19 years of life, the structure the counselors with big hearts but most importantly the people is what made it great my higher power was the group not God but seeing the love at renaissance of staying connected and keeping each others heads up made me glad that Jesus was with us in our time of trouble seeing a man barely holding on about to fall with not just tears but another hurt alcoholic and drug addict on each side keeping him standing and head straight while also hugging to make sure he knows he's not alone, that man I like to believe was an angel and his hurt brothers and sisters was his wings to not only keep him from falling but soon be able to stand on his own.

Renaissance Recovery Center has been a gift for me personally and professionally! There is no other place I would recommend to receive the love, compassion and understanding I experienced while here! Everyone has been a resource for recovery and all understand what addiction truly is! I cannot thank Renaissance Recovery Center, Lindsay and Dan, but especially Steve Brown for the tools to change my life in ways I could not imagine before meeting them. I am truly grateful to God for placing them in my life! Words cannot express how my life has remarkably changed from a seemingly hopeless state of body and mind!Dr. Black

When life became unmanageable, I reached out to Renaissance Recovery and was astonished at the amazing professionalism, attention to detail, great education, and overall quality of service and care. They really do care and have a dynamic I haven't found at several other facilities I've tried. Reaching out for help is the the hardest part. They made it easy and the rest fell into place.Steve, Lindsey, Dan, and Chad are what make this program work. Head and shoulders above the rest. It's changed my life for the better and given me quilty of life that other places didn't deliver. It is always the first place I talk about (really brag about) and recommend if someone is suffering from this terrible affliction of chemical dependency.If you need help and are struggling with addiction... Look no further. 12 step based recovery with one on one and group therapy. It was the best thing I ever did for me and my family. I'm now enjoying a new sober life I never thought possible. Thank you Renaissance for what you do. The place was a Godsend. Eternally grateful. Best luck and be well.

Five years ago I had the opportunity to meet Steve Brown, the owner of Renaissance Recovery. At the time, I was working with a physician who treated dependency with medication, but realized his patients also needed skilled counseling and therapy as a part of their recovery plan if they were to succeed in achieving long-term sobriety. He routinely referred his patients to Renaissance Recovery. I have had numerous occasions to observe Steve and his excellent staff as they interact with clients and their families. There is no condemnation or judgement for any client who walks through the door at Renaissance Recovery, only acceptance and empathy.The staff and the beautiful facility promote a therapeutic environment that fosters restoration of the mind, body,and soul. I encourage anyone seeking help for an addiction for themselves or for a loved one to contact Renaissance Recovery. Your call will be welcomed.
02:42 05 Mar 19
I am a spouse of someone who has been through Renaissance. This was our first rehab rodeo and hopefully our last! This program is full of counselors who love the individuals who are suffering. Renaissance recognizes that not only the addict is suffering, family and close friends may need support as well.During this time, I found the support I needed through the family group and workshops Renaissance puts together. I cannot say enough good things about this program and the process they encourage for healing as a whole. They want what’s best for those in thier program and their families as well. They offer addiction education and support to family members which helped me better understand my spouse and the process he was going through. They offer an after care program and have continued to show support to our family with therapy referrals and counseling suggestions. Steve Brown and his team listens intently to know the needs of who goes through thier program. I am so thankful the impact Renaissance has had on my husband and also myself by encouraging a healing process for the family members as well. I was extended a hand of support from other struggling family members and the comradery of this program is one that can’t be beat. My husband has left this program with friends he will have forever just like I have. You are not alone and you don’t have to suffer alone!

If you are looking for THE place for recovery look no further! These are amazing individuals that have many years helping those who suffer from alcholism and addiction. They are as genuine as they come and I promise you will get the care you need. I've been sober over ten years using this program as a base for my recovery . Steve brown and company continue to touch so many lives and take their profession seriously . You will never regret coming to this special place.

I would absolutely recommend for addiction recovery. The staff is caring, wonderful, and extremely knowledgeable.
12:48 08 Jun 18
My experience with Renaissance Recovery Center was nothing but absolutely wonderful. When I first walked thru the front door, I was greeted by a caring staff. I first met with Dan and knew this was the place for me. Steve and Lindsey provided me with invaluable tools and a mindset to be successful. Renaissance Recovery Center tailored my recovery process to my specific needs which is very important because each person's story and circumstances are different. I have now been sober for over 120 days and I could not have done it without the love and support of the wonderful staff at Renaissance Recovery Center!

I participated in the Intensive Outpatient Program from late September to late December. This program is amazing, run by three people who really know what they're doing! Our group meetings did follow a structure, but there was quite a bit of time for sharing and interacting with peers and staff members. Because of this format, our group became very close. We shared personal thoughts and stories in a very comfortable and responsive setting.The program also includes one-on-one therapy sessions every week, as well as individual help with the first four steps of the 12 step AA program. The combination of treatments and the supportive atmosphere is effective, and leaves many clients wanting more. I am currently enrolled in the aftercare program which meets once a week for two hours. In this group we focus more on strategies for coping and recognizing and diverting signs of relapse in everyday life. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is struggling with addiction.
07:49 02 Mar 18
I spoke with Steve he took the time to generously answer all my questions for my loved one, he even met with us on his day off! All without asking for a dime, he is in this for the recovery of people to get their lives back and not trying to sell spots! Don't second guess this is the place for you!
16:49 16 Nov 17
I cannot say enough good things about renaissance recovery. They really care and truly love everyone who comes in for help. There is a strong spirit that I felt all the way through my treatment. Highly recomended
19:52 10 Aug 17
Renaissance Recovery Center has changed my life forever. I met the founder Steve Brown in 2009, to this day he is a support in recovery to me and my family. When I was lost and had no idea where to turn my wife found Renaissance Recovery Center, today my life is so much better, I am a father to three beautiful girls, I have a super emotionally honest relationship with my wife of 15 years, I just celebrated 6 years of sobriety this month (total miracle). I trust Steve Brown and his staff 100%. Recovery is possible!!!

Personal and individualized care. Gracious and thoughtful staff. The individual sessions were ardent. The group sessions bring a camaraderie and fellowship which instigate everlasting friendships I never thought were possible. A new hope was instilled in me during treatment.

Steve Brown at Renaissance Recovery Center is the most incredibly caring counselor! I called initially to schedule an appointment and ended up talking to him on the phone for at least 30 mins and he was filled with good advice and a listening ear. He followed up the next day with me to see how things were going. Even though his office doesn't treat my specific need, he still spent time helping me find other resources that will help me. I encourage all who are searching to call this office.
18:54 23 Sep 16
Renaissance Recovery has such a unique program and staff who know exactly how to help those of us still suffering. I have come to trust and have complete confidence in the staff, which isn't always easy to find. I owe a big part of my recovery to this program and everything they have done for me!

Common Signs and Symptoms of Drug Addiction
- Sudden difficulties in school, work, or related activities. Slipping grades missed work meetings, and sudden disinterest in hobbies or school-related activities like playing on the soccer team or trying out for a play may all indicate an increase in drug use.
- Abrupt changes in physical appearance. This may include a general lack of interest in normal grooming or wearing dirty or otherwise inappropriate clothing. Bloodshot eyes, thinness, and poor skin tone are all common physical signs of drug addiction.
- Changes in spending habits. Drug users will often stop spending money on things that they used to, such as going to the movies or weekly outings with friends, and instead use whatever money they have to buy drugs. Sudden and continual borrowing of money or an inability to pay bills on time are also often signs of a growing drug problem.
- Sudden isolationism or withdrawal.While it is natural for teenagers and young adults to go through a period where they want more privacy and independence, withdrawing too much from family and friends is often a sign of an underlying issue. Drug abusers will frequently isolate themselves in order to hide their addiction from friends and family members.
Common Signs and Symptoms of Alcohol Addiction
Alcohol addiction has many of the same warning signs as drug addiction. However, alcoholism can often be hard to spot by those who don’t directly live with them as, unlike most drugs, drinking alcohol socially is seen as more of a cultural norm, and abuse can often be waved away as ‘normal use’. Alcoholics can present many different personalities ranging from extreme extroversion to reclusiveness. The following is a look at a few of the more common signs and symptoms that may indicate someone you love is struggling with alcoholism and alcohol addiction:
- Drinking alcohol is dangerous and inappropriate situations. Drinking and driving, mixing alcohol with prescription medication, operating work machinery while drinking, and otherwise drinking at work or at school functions are all signs that a person is struggling with alcoholism.
- Needing to drink to relax or de-stress. American films, books, and other forms of media portray alcohol as a ‘normal’ means of relaxing. However, a person that increasingly needs to drink in order to relax or de-stress treads a dangerous path. Not everyone can drink in moderation and relying too much on alcohol or drugs to relax is a dangerous sign of early alcoholism.
- Continuing to drink even after alcohol use has caused relationship issues. For some, alcohol use can make them more flirty to strangers while for others it can make them more aggressive and still others don’t have issues when drinking but suffer the morning after. In all these situations and others, the abuse of alcohol commonly starts to affect the relationship one has with friends, families, and work colleagues. Those who either refuse to acknowledge this or continue despite this are those most in need of outside help for drug and alcohol addiction.
