RENEWAL is designed to offer hope and comfort to people suffering from mental health disorders or addiction disorders, and support to the people who love them. Our approach is based on respect for the dignity of the people we serve and the belief that through a faith-based program, life-changing results are possible.

RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery is an optional treatment supplement available through Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Brookhaven, we understand that when you are suffering from an eating disorder, a personality disorder, a behavioral health disorder or chemical dependency, life can seem utterly hopeless. It can cause Christians to feel abandoned and distant from God. However, by strengthening your spirituality, in conjunction with our professional medical services, you can experience results that you never thought were possible.

RENEWAL is based on the belief in:

God who created us and loves us (Genesis 1:26)
Jesus Christ who redeems us (Isaiah 53:5)
The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

When you participate in RENEWAL, you’re part of something much bigger than yourself. Brookhaven clients receive expert care from our team of mental professionals.

Discrimination: Mental health and chemical dependency overlooked in health care reforms

Share

New data suggests that approximately one in four adult Americans that do not have health insurance have a mental illness, chemical dependency problem, or both. Although there are a variety of state funded health care initiatives that intend to aid individuals without private insurance many states are neglecting to cover mental health and chemical dependency problems. “Many states are trying to cover the uninsured but need to do more in these critical areas that affect one in four Americans,” said National Alliance on Mental Illness executive director Michael J. Fitzpatrick.

Mental illness and chemical dependency should not take the back seat to other health conditions; the fact is that mental illness is the leading cause of disability among adults and substance use the second. Commenting about the situation, Linda Rosenberg, President and CEO of the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, said, “It is distressing that there are insurance plans and health care reform initiatives that continue to discriminate.” The following are some major findings of the report from http://healthcareforuninsured.org:

1. People with mental illness, substance use disorders, or both are prevalent among the uninsured. More than one in four adult Americans who lack insurance coverage have a mental illness, substance use disorder, or co-occurring disorder.
2. The scope of the benefit package for mental illness and substance use treatment varies greatly. Some state programs provide a variety of services designed to promote recovery from these disorders. Two state programs provide no coverage for either mental illness or substance use disorders.
3. Approximately 60 percent of the states evaluated had at least equal coverage for serious mental illness or mental illness compared with other health conditions in at least one of their programs for the uninsured.
4. Substance use disorders fare worse than mental illness in many state programs. Roughly 28 percent of the states evaluated have an equal benefit for substance use and other health conditions in at least one of their programs.
