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.

Dealing with “I Can’t”

by Rev. Tom Gray

 

Throughout my ministry I was active in counseling families following a suicide. I had experience with this in my own extended family with specific training to help others. I worked with local police, to be sure that I could be ready as soon as possible to counsel survivors. But every time I got a call to an active scene, I’d temporarily freeze, saying to myself, “I can’t do this.”

Truth was, I really meant “I won’t.”

Why, if I had experience, education, and a calling for this ministry, would I balk at actually doing it? The truth was simple: it was hard. I met with people at the lowest point in their lives. I didn’t just witness grief, I experienced it all over for myself. It was the toughest point of my ministry yet, in many ways, the best. If I heeded my initial reaction and asked someone else to go, I’d never have found the significance and inner healing that I received from this ministry.

I am sure that there are some important things that you balk at. When your inner voice says “I can’t,” realize that you may just be reacting for the moment. In the Lord, we can always say “we can.” The result of faithfulness is a strengthening of our inner sense of well-being, especially if we are helping other. We are created, in part, to serve others with the gifts and experiences we’ve had. If God has called you to do something difficult, He will provide all your needs, and be with you, as well.

Ephesians 3:16 

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
