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.

Faith Following PTSD


Recently, Larry King interviewed a Vietnam Vet hero, Allen B. Clark, author of Wounded Soldier, Healing Warrior. The interview surrounded the topic of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following wartime. Clark, recently retired from the North Texas VA system, is now an advocate on the behalf of soldiers for better post-war transitioning to VA-treatment and compensation systems. In his book, Clark recalls his personal emotional breakdown due to PTSD that ultimately resulted in an in-patient psychiatric stay. Clark tells that following his in-patient stay he found renewed strength from his faith in God. As a result, Clark now spends much of his time working with other vets in a ministry that helps soldiers with PTSD. The following is an excerpt of an article from the Dallas Observer that discusses Clark’s life and efforts:

On June 17, 1967, Clark was serving as a combat medic in a Special Forces camp in Dak To, a base in the so-called “tri-border” area where South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos met. Before dawn the enemy started shelling the camp with mortars. Running with his rifle in one hand and a radio in the other, Clark felt a “sudden jolting thud” knock him forward. A mortar had exploded about 18 inches behind him, sending shrapnel into his body below the waist.
“Oh, God, my legs, my legs! Help me!” Clark screamed. “Oh, God, I’m dead!”
Clark, a Dallas resident, lived through the attack but lost both legs from the knees down. He struggled through rehabilitation but eventually learned to use prosthetic legs to walk. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD) took Clark much longer to conquer. Now he wants to take the lessons of his subsequent four decades to soldiers who have been wounded in Iraq.
