Recovery is breaking the cycle of addiction.

We help restore hope and recover lives by supporting people who begin the process of recovery. Our clients improve their self-confidence, self-image, and self respect.

We counsel, educate, advise, guide, and provide a supportive network which is vital to a life of recovery. Renz Center help clients establish a lifestyle which can be free of the entanglements of substance abuse and problem and compulsive gambling.
