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.

Loneliness Weighs Heavily on the Heart

Hebrews 10:25 says “Do not… forsake the assembling of yourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhort one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. ” There is accountability, exhortation and encouragement when we are in life-giving relationships with other people. As a Pastor, keeping your congregates connected to the body of the church is vital. When a person is socially isolated they can become depressed, their health can deteriorate and ultimately they can become suicidal. The following article discusses a clinical study on the negative affects of loneliness:

“Loneliness may be as bad for the heart as being overweight or inactive, researchers here suggested.
Middle-age and older adults reporting the greatest degree of loneliness had blood pressure levels 10 mm Hg to 30 mm/Hg higher on average than those who were least lonely, found psychologist Louise C. Hawkley, Ph.D., of the University of Chicago, and colleagues.

The magnitude of the effect of loneliness on blood pressure is comparable to the magnitude of reduction that can be achieved through weight loss and exercise, said Dr. Hawkley and Jarett D. Berry, M.D., a cardiology fellow at Northwestern, in the March issue of Psychology and Aging.
For example, they noted, other studies have shown that losing 10 kg of excess weight reduces blood pressure by 5 mm Hg to 20 mm Hg and that regular physical activity can lower blood pressure by 4 mm Hg to 9 mm Hg.”
