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 Word about The Word


by Rev. Tom Gray

“I think I’m going to read the Bible all the way through next year.” I’ve heard (and used) that new year’s pledge before. Almost always, it fails. I think it is good, even vital to read the Bible, but it needs to be done properly.

When most of us start reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, we get bogged down somewhere around Leviticus. It is better that we resolve to read what we can, each book in its entirety. The Bible wasn’t written to be read cover-to-cover. While the various books of the Bible reflect on the others, each is also meant to be read on its own.

I suggest that you start with the Gospels. Mark is the shortest, John is the most “polished” literarily. Matthew and Luke are the more detailed biographies of Jesus. Moving on, you can read more New Testament history in Acts (which was written as the sequel to Luke).

Other great books to read as you start are Romans, Philippians or any other of the apostles’ letters. These are just suggestions, there is no hard rule to follow but this: just read.

Don’t be afraid to mark up your Bible. Underlining key ideas, or favorite passages, helps you remember more of what you have read. A good rule for underlining is to do so with verses you particularly like, or ones that create questions in your mind. It’s also good to write short notes in the margins. It is not sacrilegious to write in your Bible.

If you begin reading the Bible this way, success will build on itself as your Biblical knowledge increases.

The point is to read your Bible.
