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.

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)

3 Tips on Having a Healthy Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving God

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and while there are many people who feel excited about celebrating Thanksgiving with their families, there are also those who dread this holiday. Experiencing the holiday blues every year can take its toll on a family member. Unfortunately, there are people who dread Thanksgiving due to personal, health and financial problems. Despite these reasons, they should not be used as excuses not to celebrate Thanksgiving. You do not have to forgo Thanksgiving if you feel the holiday blues. There are ways for you to manage holiday blues so that you will be able to have a meaningful holiday with your loved ones.

 #1.  Always Invest In Good Physical and Emotional Health

Remember the saying “you are what you eat.”  Eating proper nutrition is essential in making your body function well and stay healthy. Aside from making your body function properly, the food you take also influences your emotional health. Always make sure that you eat a balanced meal, and that you avoid eating highly processed food. Doing so will help you to have enough strength to combat holiday stress. Click here for more information on proper nutrition.  Aside from proper nutrition, it is also very important that you also get enough rest as well as exercise. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a chart for sleep guidelines.

#2. Set Realistic Goals for the Holiday

Thanksgiving season today is celebrated with commercialism in the background. This is the reason why many people want to celebrate lavishly by cooking more than enough food for the family to consume. In addition, many people also want to buy expensive food for their loved ones during Thanksgiving. It is important that you set realistic goals for yourself as well as for your family during this holiday season. Only buy what is essential for the family. Some families find it helpful to set a budget on how much they can spend on Thanksgiving. My family always delegates different food items so everyone brings something different.    You have to rememberthat Thanksgiving is all about thanking God for the blessings that you have received.  It is not about focusing on what you don’t have.

#3.  Let Go of the Past to Celebrate the Meaning of Thanksgiving

The reason why some people cannot celebrate Thanksgiving properly is that there are some things in their past that they cannot let go. Those who have experienced losing a loved one recently or losing their job might find it difficult to celebrate Thanksgiving. The best solution to this problem is to let go of the past and think about the future. You can do this by seeking the help of your family, church, counselor and God.  Just like what 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 (NIV) says “”My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”

Happy Thanksgiving!
