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.

Can Churches Properly Address Sexual Abuse?


Christian counselors know better than almost anyone else about the failings of the church, especially in the area of mental health and/or abuse. Of course, we often don’t hear the good side of the story, because no one comes to a counselor or psychologist to speak about how well their abuse was handled.

No, we only hear the mistakes. Because of this, it could be very easy to paint the church in a truly terrible light when it comes to its handling of sexual abuse or allegations that arise, but as Phil Monroe said, “that would not be true.”

While there are more negative stories about the church’s handling of sexual abuse than we would like to think about, those stories also get the most attention because it simply isn’t newsworthy to most to point out when a church is doing it right. However, many churches are handling the issue in healthy, honest, and proactive ways.

One of those churches, The Summit Church from Durham, NC, held an entire weekend of sexual abuse awareness, training, and discussion in May. They also shared their entire event from preparation, through the sermon and aftercare. Not only did they address the issue, they present steps to allow their church to be a real positive presence in their community’s mental health treatment and support.

If you ever wanted proof that there are many churches out there truly addressing the problem, or you want a blue-print for how your own group can finally take the reins and look the issue straight in the eyes, Summit Church shows you everything you want to see.
