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.

Clinicians From Christian Treatment Centers to Discuss Mental Health Conditions Related to Body Image

There are many Christian women struggling with mental health conditions like trauma, eating disorders and body image issues. In order to respond to these issues and the need to help afflicted individuals, FINDINGbalance, a leading Christian resource for body image issues and eating disorders, organized a conference for June 21-24, 2012 called “Hungry for Hope: Sex and Skinny.” The conference will be held at Glen Eyrie, an English Tudor-style castle—considered by many to be a spiritual destination of healing.
According to Constance Rhodes, Founder and CEO of FINDINGbalance, “At Hungry for Hope, Christian clinicians have the opportunity to learn from and connect with other professionals who share their faith and values.”
The conference’s theme Sex and Skinny will examine “God-give sexuality.” Sexuality has been a contentious issue within various religious traditions for thousands of years. Women are often used to experiencing feelings of confusion and shame about their bodies and sexuality. To perpetuate a healthy view of sexuality, the conference hopes to align Christian laypersons and leaders with a scripturally sound view of sexuality and the body.
According to Margaret Nagib PsyD, spirituality clinical coordinator at a residential Christian treatment center, and keynote speaker of the conference, “True healing from these issues can only be realized as the individual identifies how these behaviors are used to cope with emotional and relational pain and looks to God as her source for her deepest longings and needs.”
Hungry for Hope is designed as a retreat to encourage, inspire and equip professionals and community members with stories, practical clinical tools and spiritual teaching to promote a healing path.
Hopefully this conference will help raise awareness about these issues and shed a spotlight on the power of introducing spirituality into the treatment of psychological disorders.
