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.

Christian Psychiatry: A Spoonful of Faith Helps the Medicine Go Down

Share

If you are suffering from behavioral health disorders like depression, anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), it’s very likely that the right medication can have a transformative impact on your life. But if you have been coping with a condition for a long time, you might feel skeptical that psychiatry can make a difference. In fact, you might have already tried various medications in the past and did not experience the results you are looking for out of treatment.

While it’s true that certain medications work better for some people while others work better with others, it’s all-too-common for individuals to give up and stop taking their medication before it can have its proper impact. In order for psychiatry to be affective, you need to have faith in your healthcare provider and the healing process itself. Sometimes it is necessary to try several different medications before finding the ones that work.

If you are a Christian, the healing process can be further empowered through your faith in God. It’s important to realize that God wants you to live a healthy and happy life:

‘For I will restore health to you
And heal you of your wounds,’ says the Lord
Jeremiah 30:17 (NKJV)

God has the power to work with your psychiatrist and other healthcare providers to deliver you from the symptoms of your behavioral health condition. However, it is important to realize that it can take time to reach your goals. As Moses’ years in the desert prove, God works in His own timeframe.

Therefore, it’s important to keep your faith strong during your entire recovery process. It can take a while for treatments to be effective. But that doesn’t mean that you should give up. God is patient and you should be as well. As Jesus says in the parable of the sower:

But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.
Luke 8:15 (NKJV)

If you plant your seeds in a Christian treatment program, and practice patience with your recovery process, your efforts will likely be fruitful.
