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. Treatment is solution-focused and success-oriented. Our goal is to minimize symptoms, help individuals address life problems and live fulfilling lives. Sometimes healing requires a helping hand. We’re here to provide the guidance and support you need to recover.

A Good Bad Thing

by Rev. Tom Gray

Pain is a good bad thing. Try to think of life without any pain. While you’d feel comparatively good, it wouldn’t last. In an imperfect world pain is necessary to warn us if something in our bodies is going wrong.

While a life without pain seems like heaven on earth, it would bring forth some hellish things. For example, the failure of pain sensors is one symptom of leprosy.  A person with leprosy will not feel the pain of an infected part. This is why many of them lose body parts, like fingers and toes.

I hesitate to call pain a good thing, but it can lead to good. The pain we feel is meant to lead us to healing. Lest you think I am glib about this, I feel pain almost constantly from a severe form of arthritis.  We live in an imperfect world and need signals to seek healing.

I’m not sure if this also applies to emotional pain, like grief, but it does apply to things like fear, which can help us escape dangerous situations. Pain can, at times, seem overwhelming. That’s a reason to seek out your doctor and to seek God in prayer.

Because my initial pain drove me to the doctor some forty years ago, I have avoided many of the crippling effects of my disease. It is also what drove me deeper into my faith. While I’d love never to have had this pain, I’d lose what I’ve learned and experienced through it.

But as for me, afflicted and in pain—may your salvation, God, protect me.

Psalm 69:29
