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)

Physical Activity May Slow Cognitive Decline

It is already known that exercise improves mood, lessens the likelihood of depression, and is generally healthy for you. However, a new study has found a connection between regular exercise and the decline of the mind. According to findings recently presented at the Alzheimer’s 2009 International Conference on Alzheimer’s disease, regular activity can significantly slow cognitive decline. In particular, a simple activity like walking 20 to 30 minutes a day appears to have protective benefits. According to Deborah E. Barnes, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California San Francisco, “What we found with our research is that even if you stop exercising for a while, when you return to regular activity, you really don’t lose much when compared to people who are continually sedentary.” The study was composed of 3,075 men and women, ages 70 to 79, who were enrolled in the Health Aging and Body Composition Study. The researchers assessed level of activity based on self-reports from each participant. The mean rate of decline among those that had sedentary lifestyles was .62 points a year; however, those that walked 20 to 30 minutes a day experienced cognitive decline at .4 points per year, a significant decrease.
