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.

Is Prescription Drug Addiction Reaching Epidemic Levels Within The Church?


One of the biggest hurdles Christians face in dealing with substance abuse of any kind is shame. This is especially true for the latest addiction epidemic that is gradually overtaking the country.

Despite the swiftly growing rates of prescription drug abuse, it is common to feel isolated and ashamed for developing an addiction. Last year more people died from opiate overdose than those who died in car accidents, and yet the very nature of the issue keeps it from being readily visible.

Our churches may seem safe from issues like mental health and addiction, but we all struggle in our own paths and these obstacles are just as prevalent in the pews as they are in the secular world.

One individual who knows this better than most is Dove Award-nominated artist Joseph Habedank. Habedank has seen his own trials and tribulations with prescription drug addiction and he agrees that this form of addiction is potentially at epidemic levels within church. As such, he has committed himself to helping those who are silently suffering from substance abuse in the church.

Habedank discussed his addiction and new dedication to helping those who are struggling with addiction in a recent interview with Christian Post. It provides insight into just how prevalent prescription drug abuse is within the church and how we might think differently about those who struggle with it.
