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.

Poor understanding about one’s condition is most often the barrier to patients taking antipsychotic drugs


Often people with mental illness neglect to take their prescribed antipsychotic medications because of a lack of understanding about their illness, forgetfulness, and simply making a decision to stop. John Kane, MD, when speaking at a workshop sponsored by the American Psychiatric Association, reported that patients with schizophrenia often have difficulty taking their antipsychotic medications as a result of their illness, their illness effecting their ability to make good judgments. “The other thing that can happen is that individuals can be lulled into a false sense of security. When they’re doing particularly well, they think that perhaps they don’t need to take their medication,” according to Dr. Kane. “One can stop taking medication in an illness like schizophrenia and not necessarily notice a change immediately.” The following is an excerpt from medpage today that discusses a pilot study’s findings on the subject:

A total of 3,156 physicians and other clinicians were surveyed, including 134 in the pilot study and 3,022 in the national roll-out.

In all, 61 (46%) of the pilot program physicians returned surveys, and data on 309 patients collected from these physicians revealed that “poor insight into illness” was the most common reason given for nonadherence, reported for 74% of patients.

The same reason was cited most often in the larger analysis, which collected data on 13,538 patients from 1,522 physicians — about a 50% return. “Poor insight into illness” was cited for 68% of patients.

Second most often cited was “previous discontinuation of medication on own,” reported for 68% of patients by physicians in both the pilot and national studies. Forgetting medication was reported for 67% in the pilot study and 66% in the national survey.
