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. Treatment is solution-focused and success-oriented. Our goal is to minimize symptoms, help individuals address life problems and live fulfilling lives. Sometimes healing requires a helping hand.

Does childhood bullying influence your mental heath later in life?

It is commonly agreed that being bullied as a child “can” effect one’s emotional health as an adult; just how much of an effect though does bullying have on 13 to 24-year-olds? According to findings from a Finnish study published in the September 7 issue of Archives of General Psychiatry, female victims of bullying were found to be 70% more likely to have received psychiatric medications or to have been hospitalized for psychiatric treatment between the ages of 13 and 24; these numbers remained consistent even after accounting for psychiatric diagnosis at age 8. Boys were 60% more likely to  seek psychiatric care if they were either bulled or a bully themselves, and those that were both bullies and bullied were almost four times as likely. However, these numbers for males became statistically insignificant after adjustment for psychopathology scores at the age of 8. According to Andre Sourander, MD, PhD, of Turku University Hospital, and colleagues, “Bullying behavior should be considered a marker of the risk of a later psychiatric disorder, which if not treated promptly, might develop into a serious problem for those involved and for society as a whole… among girls, frequent childhood victimization may predict later psychiatric problems regardless of psychiatric problems at baseline.” Click here to read an article from Medpage Today that discusses these findings more.
