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: Using Faith to Accelerate on the Road to Recovery

Share

Sometimes you have to be honest with yourself and admit when it’s time to seek help. If you are battling drug addiction, depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions it is often a good idea to turn to professionals who can help put you on the road to recovery.

As a Christian, it’s important to understand that there is no shame in getting help you need. When you are suffering with eating disorders, behavioral health disorders or personality disorders, helpful doctors and counselors can truly be a gift from God.  In certain Christian circles, psychiatry may be viewed in a negative light. However, psychiatry when positively mixed with faith can accelerate the healing process.

Though ultimately it’s your decision whether you want to seek secular or faith-based treatment, if you decide to incorporate your faith into your treatment, it’s necessary to find doctors, psychiatrists and other counselors who are fully comfortable integrating your faith into your treatment program.

Christians can often experience life-changing results by openly incorporating their faith in their recovery. But in order to find an open environment, it’s important to be up front with your beliefs and ask if professionals are comfortable incorporating them into the recovery process.

The best option can often be finding a program that is specifically designed to incorporate your faith into your recovery process. That way you can work on strengthening your relationship with God while simultaneously treating any physical or mental conditions. In addition to Christian psychiatry, a Christian treatment program can offer you regular pastoral counseling and support groups. By interacting with other Christians who are suffering from similar conditions, you might find that you can gain the extra support you need to reach your goals.

Psychology and spirituality don’t have to work independently. You can integrate your faith into every step of the healing process. The road to recovery can be long and arduous. But many Christians find that just as a gas pedal can accelerate your car on the highway, so too can faith accelerate your recovery.
