Welcome to Renewal, Inc.
Renewal, Inc. is a renowned Pittsburgh-based community corrections organization focused on rebuilding lives affected by wide-spread opioid and other substance and alcohol use disorders.
For more than 40 years, our successful rehabilitation and counseling programs have focused on prevention, early intervention, support services, treatment, and family support to help individuals make positive changes in their lives.
Our multi-faceted approach meets our mission of helping individuals in the general public and the criminal justice system transition back to their families and communities. This is accomplished through counseling, education, community service, and job readiness, partnered with social readjustment to identify immediate and long-term goals.
To further expand our mission, we opened a non-hospital Detox Program, licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs, on July 23, 2018 at our 704 Second Avenue facility. This service is provided to males and females in the community as well as to those with criminal justice involvement. It offers programs such as:
- Housing Assistance
- Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment
- Numerous Reentry Support Services
- Workforce Development
- Family Support and Strengthening
to individuals in various stages of reintegration. Our skilled and professional staff can assist individuals from the beginning of the new chapter in their lives and beyond.
Renewal, Inc. is proud of our role in battling the crises of addiction – and we are winning.
Renewal is proud to be an American Correctional Association (ACA) accredited agency since 1999.

Featured Success Story
What I’d say to others facing similar challenges is that you can achieve your fullest potential but you have to work hard and do more than what’s required of you because you want to, not because you have to. Find something that makes you passionate and gives you purpose in life. If you can do that and be consistent and courteous, especially to others, that’s what true change is all about.
