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.

Being Grateful is Good For Your Health


Thanksgiving God

Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital

Have you encountered someone who finds what is wrong with people? Typically, these types of negative people have very few friends.

Having a satisfying relationship brings on a wider invitation to having more friends to be thankful for.  Being grateful develops a healthy relationship, and you will also feel healthier physically and mentally.

Gratitude can open the door to more relationships: “More gratitude may be precisely what our society needs to raise a generation that is ready to make a difference in the world,”  Giacomo Bono, Ph.D., a psychology professor at California State University.

According to a 2003 study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, “…gratitude  could also boost pro-social behaviors, such as helping other people who have problems or lending emotional support to another person.”

Gratitude improves our physical health: Gratefulness is linked with optimism, which in turn is linked with better immune health. WebMD also reported that negative events can boost gratitude, and that gratitude can help to boost feelings of belonging like tragic  events of 9/11 for example; and helps decrease feelings of stress.  Writing in a gratitude journal improves sleep, according to a 2011 study published in Applied Psychology.

Though we count on giving and saying our blessings at our Thanksgiving table with family and friends, we can also be thankful and grateful all year long.  By doing so, it has the power to change our society, relationships and promote good overall well-being for ourselves and for those we love.

Let’s also remember to thank our Veterans and their families, this Thanksgiving season for their service to our country!

Happy Thanksgiving from Renewal Christian Care Team!
