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 Teacher with Presence

Share

by Rev. Tom Gray

 

When I entered second grade in a new school, I wondered what kind of teacher I would have. When we saw her enter, all were quiet. I would guess it took two minutes for her to make it from the door to her desk. She hobbled painfully, her body distorted by twists, angles, and odd protrusions from her severely deformed hands

As she turned to speak to us with her marked Southern accent, we were enthralled. Never before or since have I had a teacher with such presence or power. As it was a Christian school, she had a profound influence on my faith as well as education.

She commented on her condition only once—crippling arthritis. She said she could live with it because of her Lord, Jesus Christ. Never once did she complain. It made faith a real thing for me. Within weeks we no longer saw her differences. She gave us her phone number, adding that we could call anytime but should let the phone ring 10 times since that was how long it took her to get to it.

We are not defined by our illnesses, our appearance, or our circumstances. Faith creates overcomers with the Lord’s presence and promises. I was diagnosed with a different kind of severe arthritis 40 years ago. Through the years it has stiffened my body, yet when I think of Miss Sartin, I think of our Lord, His strength, and the hope we have together in Him.

She truly lives on in her kids’ hearts. She never married, yet “had” hundreds of kids. I’m just one of them.
