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.

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)

Fast food is linked to higher rates of stroke…


According to findings from a study recently revealed at the American Stroke Association International Stroke Conference, fast food is linked to higher rates of stroke. According to the study, areas where there were more fast food restaurants had higher rates of stroke than areas with lower concentrations. In fact, the most dense fast food area in the study showed a 13% higher risk. Lewis B. Morgenstern, M.D., of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, commenting, said, “Where we live and where our kids go to school has a profound effect on our health.” The following is an excerpt of an article from Medpage Today that discusses the issue more:

Although it’s tempting to blame fast food, Brian Silver, M.D., of Henry Ford Hospital in East Lansing, Mich., who was not involved in the study, agreed that fast food might be just another marker for community risk factors.

He also said it’s important to put the modest risk in perspective. “It’s not as important as blood pressure or atrial fibrillation, but if you’re trying to look for all potentially modifiable risk factors, this may be one more thing.”

The analysis was part of the larger ecological Brain Attack Surveillance in Corpus Christi (BASIC) study, which has looked at a wide range of correlates of stroke in Nueces County, Texas.

Active and passive surveillance identified 1,247 ischemic strokes in county residents from January 2000 through June 2003.

When each case was linked to the census tract of residence, the researchers found a significant association (P=0.02) with the number of nearby fast-food restaurants — defined as having two or more of the following characteristics: expedited service, limited wait staff, takeout business, and payment before being served.
