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)

Pregnant Drinking Increases Child’s Risk of Alcohol Disorder


Rosa Alati, Ph.D, and associates of the University of Queensland, recently published a study on the relatedness of drinking and child risks for Alcohol Disorder. The study found that woman who drink during the first two trimesters of pregnancy increased their chance of giving birth to children that have a greater risk of alcohol disorder. According to the study, three drinks per sitting consumed several times a month elevates the risk of early on set drinking in their children by 50%. Here is an excerpt of the article:

Children of mothers who drink during pregnancy have a greater risk of developing alcohol problems as they grow up, according to Australian researchers.

This is particularly so for mothers who drink during the first two trimesters, reported Rosa Alati, Ph.D., of the University of Queensland here, and colleagues, in the September issue of Archives of General Psychiatry.

There have been many studies on the relatedness of drinking during pregnancy and the genetic predisposition of children to alcohol disorder. This study verifies previous findings from other studies. The importance of this is that the question of “if” drinking during pregnancy will cause developmental problems really doesn’t exist now. Now the issue is publishing the news in layman’s terms to those in need of education. Who better to take on this task than the church?
