insulating against block wall

I have a split level in northwestern PA, one of the rooms downstairs has 1" styrofoam insulation laid between furring strips with dry wall overtop. The drywall isn't in that good of shape so I was thinking of putting insulation over the drywall and then redoing the walls. I'm going to cause a problem by doing that or should I take it right down to the block and start over? thanks

What's wrong with the drywall that's there now? Just routine wear & tear from living, or is it water damaged? Is the outside of this wall exposed or earth contact?

The room has a pellet stove with brick veneer and hearth that is going to be removed so that are will have to be drywalled, also I was going to add phone lines and satelite cables behind the new dry wall.

Two of the walls are exposed to earth.
