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.

Gratitude From All Directions

by Rev. Tom Gray In our dining room stands a solid oak dining table that my grandparents bought about 100 years ago. It has seen a lot of use, attested by subtle stains and marks that, for me, enhance the table. People I love sat at that table and the marks are theirs (and mine). […]

Joy and Gratitude

by Rev. Tom Gray   The Pilgrims who celebrated the first Thanksgiving didn’t really have a lot to be thankful, by our standards. They had just endured a severe winter in which a significant number of their group died. Food had been hard to come by and the weather itself had been deadly. So, why […]

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 […]

Talking to God

by Rev. Tom Gray   Prayer is talking to God. When we first learn to pray, it’s more like working out a laundry list of our needs and desires. There’s nothing wrong with this. When we’re little children, much of our conversation focuses on what we need. As we grow, our talking matures into sharing. […]

Healing the Hurt

by Rev. Tom Gray   Most of us have avoided someone because of a hurt they caused us. Often we nurse the hurts we’ve received and cannot move on. I’ve dealt with families separated by anger over a slight from years before. I don’t suggest that the hurts aren’t real, but I question the value […]

Anger Issues

by Rev. Tom Gray Anger is rarely a positive emotion. It is possible to have righteous anger, but I feel that most of my anger comes out of selfish responses. Anger is usually a quick response, unthought, to what annoys us. The Bible gives serious warning about it. “But now you must rid yourselves of […]

The State of Peace

by Rev. Tom Gray We tend to think of peace as the absence of war. Certainly, by some definitions that can be true but the Christian understanding of peace is not just the temporary absence of conflict. Peace for a believer is not the absence of conflict, but a state of relationship with God through […]

The Thirsty Soul

by Rev. Tom Gray   David’s deep relationship with God strengthened and uplifted him even in the hardest of times. One of the most beautiful of his Psalms begins, As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When […]

Dealing with “I Can’t”

by Rev. Tom Gray   Throughout my ministry I was active in counseling families following a suicide. I had experience with this in my own extended family with specific training to help others. I worked with local police, to be sure that I could be ready as soon as possible to counsel survivors. But every […]

A Teacher with Presence

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 […]
