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.

Conviction v. Condemnation


Conviction v. Condemnation

The culture of Christianity encompasses some wonderful ideas about faith, hope, love and other life entrenched subjects. However, at times and without proper balance, people can develop some unhealthy unbiblical thoughts about themselves and the world that they live in. In instances were healthy conviction is replaced with self-condemnation condemnation you might just need a prescription for guilt. Diane Langberg, PhD, gives some good advice to believers regarding guilt about taking antidepressants and other hang-ups that may be of use to you. The following is an excerpt of her article on Today’s Christian Woman entitled “Prescription for Guilt”:

I take antidepressants for depression and anxiety. However, many of my Christian friends suggest I’m just “popping pills” to solve my problems. Why do believers make people feel guilty for taking medication for depression?

Such reactions often are based on ignorance or misunderstanding. Many people don’t understand what clinical depression is or how utterly debilitating it can be. They mistakenly think it’s a case of “the blues,” and that if you just prayed more and pushed yourself more, you’d be fine.

But depression can be an unremitting darkness that affects both mind and body. It can occur without any apparent precipitant and involves intense emotional anguish as well as a rash of physiological symptoms: poor appetite, weight loss, sleep disturbances (frequent midnight and early morning awakenings), loss of energy, and/or an inability to concentrate.

People not only don’t understand what depression is, but they seem to assume that medication to treat something with an emotional component is wrong, except when a clear organic cause is discovered. But the mind/body connection is so complex that such black-and-white thinking leads to gross oversimplification.
