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. We’re here to provide the guidance and support you need to recover.

Is cyber therapy worth it?

Ubaldo Leli, MD, an analyst in private practice in New York City who is vice president of the China American Psychoanalytic Alliance (CAPA), conducted his first online analysis of a patient in China via Skype in 2004 while stateside. Since then Dr. Leli regularly uses the program to work with clients in China as well as to train clinicians there. Although this method of communication may be seen as inappropriate by many conservative clinicians, cyber therapy is becoming more and more prevalent. However, individuals like Dr. Leli openly admit that there are issues that arise. In particular, difficulties surrounding language barriers as well as cultural interpretation can be difficult in a setting where subtle inflections of voice and changes in body language cannot be as easily observed. “You have to pay more attention to the word the person uses and what exactly they mean by it,” Ralph Fishkin, DO, who is also on CAPA’s board, said. “You have to ask yourself if you’re precisely understanding their feelings.” Perhaps questions defining the debate should be centered around whether inconsistencies in communication during cyber therapy are worth the gains of reaching individuals in remote areas where services are not readily available.
