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.

Fighting Depression: Prevention and recovery’s religious link

Share

Former president of the American Psychological Association, Martin Seligman, Ph.D., regarding faith and depression stated “religion and spirituality might decrease depression…by fostering positive behaviors and lessening the impact of negative circumstances.” Many clinical professionals have shared Dr. Seligman’s position over the last century. The following article reviews several studies done over the span of approximately one hundred years regarding the relationship between faith and depression. All of the studies cited focus on people of high religious involvement who considered the spiritual aspect of their lives to be a priority. The common finding among these studies was that people of religious involvement were shown to have less instances of depression and more protection from developing a depressed state. Here is an excerpt of the article:

A review of more than 80 studies appearing during the last 100 years found a factor steadily linked with lower rates of depression religious participation. People involved in a religious group and who highly valued their religious faith were at a substantially reduced risk of a depressive disorder, while people with no religious link may raise their risk of major depression by as much as 60 percent, the review found. Lack of organizational religious involvement leads to a 20 to 60 percent increase in the odds of experiencing a major depressive episode, noted review authors Michael McCullough, Ph.D., of Southern Methodist University and David Larson, M.D., MSPH, president of the International Center for the Integration of Health and Spirituality (ICIHS).
