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.

A Biblical Perspective On Anxiety

Despite what some contemporary psychologists say, anxiety is not a new problem brought on by a fast-paced technologically modern society. In fact, anxiety stretches back to biblical times, as Mental Health Grace Alliance point out on their blog.

Heightened anxiety is discussed throughout the bible including passages directly referencing it in Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Matthew, Luke, Phillippians, and Peter. It is also possible to see many biblical figures and their actions as the manifestations of anxiety.

Sometimes, anxiety is a symptom of just being a natural, caring person. It can be healthy when anxiety is an expression of concern for the well being of others, or a response to a threatening situation. But, excessive anxiety is not level.

When fears stop coming from real concern for others or a direct response to danger, anxiety stops being healthy, and can indeed be destructive on a spiritual level as well as a physical one. Excess anxiety can create misconceptions of the figure of God. Those dealing with anxiety disorder often feel as is God is a perfectionist who can never be pleased. They forget how forgiving the savior is.

When ministering or supporting those dealing with anxiety, try not to focus on the punishments that come with living a sinful life, but instead focus on the unconditional love and forgiveness the lord provides us.

Focusing on the punishment side of sin can be destructive anyways, as living a healthy and loving life should come from desire to be a good person first, and pleasing the God second.
