Christian OCD Treatment
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can control your life. When you are caught up in the rituals of OCD, it’s easy to lose your faith and feel abandoned by God. Many individuals with behavioral health issues seek help only to become trapped in the vicious cycle of recovery and relapse. But help is available.
At Brookhaven Hospital’s RENEWAL: Christian Treatment and Recovery program, we understand that treating your OCD can sometimes feel hopeless. Many programs will provide treatment for your OCD, but they may fail to acknowledge your deeper, spiritual needs. Along with offering you advanced OCD treatment, RENEWAL incorporates your faith into your recovery process. Our faith-based approach provides a compassionate atmosphere will help you find your way to recovery.
For individuals with OCD, life is often governed by obsessive thoughts. These thoughts can provide a crippling sense of anxiety and can often only be satiated through the completion of compulsive rituals, like washing one’s hands, turning off light switches or touching doorways. The unwanted thoughts that plague those with OCD can manifest as the fear of something as common as dirt and germs to more grandiose phobias.
It’s common for Christians who suffer with OCD to fear God or malicious spiritual forces. These fears can cause individuals to interrupt their lives with rituals that can take hours to complete. Obsessive compulsive behavior can have a negative impact on personal and professional relationships. But by strengthening your relationship with God and getting the right psychological treatment, it is possible to live without being governed by obsessive thoughts and ritual compulsions. Brookhaven Hospital’s RENEWAL program can help you move forward with your life.
If you or someone you love is experiencing the following symptoms, contact Brookhaven Hospital for help:
- Recurring or unwanted thoughts
- Repetitive behaviors such as hand washing, counting or cleaning
- Performing odd “rituals” that provide a temporary sense of control and relief
- Repeated doubts that a task was not done correctly
- Meticulous arrangement of personal objects and possessions
- Collection of useless items such as scraps, newspapers or clothing

In the words of one patient, “The RENEWAL program has helped me refocus my life and reminded me about the things that really matter.”
Christian Treatment Programs
When you participate in RENEWAL, you’re part of something much bigger than just yourself. You’re part of a powerful support system based on professional medical care, compassionate understanding and years of proven experience.
