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.

The Holy Spirit who guides us (Acts 1:8)

A recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine revealed some intriguing information about the mental health of war veterans. The study found that approximately one quarter of all veterans of the Afghan and Iraq conflicts that were treated at VA hospitals had developed mental health problems. Additionally, almost half of the vets with mental health disorders were diagnosed to have two or more total MH disorders. Among the mental health disorders found in the vets studied, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) was the most common. 52% of patients in the study diagnosed with a mental health disorder were found to have PTSD. Researchers found that vets most susceptible to PTSD were between the ages of 18 to 24. The following is an excerpt of an article from Med Page Today that reviews the study:

A quarter of all veterans treated at VA hospitals after returning home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan brought mental health problems back with them, reported investigators here.

When psychosocial and behavioral problems were thrown into the mix, nearly a third of all veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq who sought care at VA facility had a diagnosis of a mental-health-related disorder, reported Karen H. Seal, M.D., M.P.H., from the University of California San Francisco, and the San Francisco VA, and colleagues.
