Christian Depression Treatment

Christian Depression TreatmentWhen you struggle with depression, it’s common for life to seem empty and hopeless. You might find yourself questioning whether God has a plan for you, or whether life is worth living at all. Many individuals with depression issues medicate themselves with drugs or alcohol, but this only makes the depression worse, causing insurmountable feelings of guilt. Sometimes recovery requires something more. That’s why we’ve created a program designed to not only strengthen your mind and body, but also nurture your relationship with God.

At Brookhaven Hospital’s RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery program, we understand how depression can keep you from realizing your aspirations. Many programs can provide treatment for your behavioral health disorder, but they may fail to acknowledge your deeper, spiritual needs.  Along with offering you advanced depression treatment, RENEWAL incorporates a faith-based approach to your care. We provide a compassionate atmosphere designed to treat your depression and change your life.

Depression
Everyone feels down from time to time. But if sadness is interrupting your daily routine, it might be time to seek help. Depression can drain the color from life and distort professional and personal relationships.  For individuals with clinical depression, feelings of melancholy can make it seem like God doesn’t care. But as the Bible says:

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18 NIV).

Depression Symptoms
Depression can manifest in many different ways. If you or a loved one has experienced any of the following symptoms, it may be indicative of clinical depression:

  • A sad, anxious or empty mood over an extended period of time
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in all or most activities
  • Feelings of hopelessness or pessimism
  • Decreased energy, a feeling of being fatigued or “slowed down”
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness or helplessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Problems with memory
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Sleeping too much or not enough
  • Change in appetite and/or unintended weight loss or gain
  • Chronic pain or other persistent bodily symptoms not caused by illness or injury
  • Thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts

About the RENEWAL program
Brookhaven’s RENEWAL program provides an integrated approach for individuals seeking treatment of depression as well as people with a “dual diagnosis” based on meeting the spiritual and psychological needs of the person within a comprehensive, results-oriented treatment program.

The program begins with a spiritual assessment which allows us to help you identify the issues which are barriers to your satisfying relationship with God and enable you to incorporate a spiritual dimension into the recovery process and your life after Brookhaven.

At Brookhaven Hospital’s RENEWAL program, we understand that sometimes medical treatment isn’t enough. We provide comprehensive, faith-based care designed to treat the whole person. In addition to the full behavioral treatment program at Brookhaven Hospital, we offer the following spiritual services:

  • Daily devotional and chapel services
  • Evening bible study
  • Christian counseling
  • Devotion and prayer time
  • Topical bible study
  • Pastoral guidance
  • Weekend worship services

In the words of one patient, “The RENEWAL program has helped me refocus my life and reminded me about the things that really matter.”

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)
