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.

Do You Have Compassion Fatigue?

Share

Many times professional boundaries, time alone and self-care in general are seen as selfish. However, the opposite is actually true. Whether employing one’s talents as a counselor, nurse, church professional, or any other occupation that involves continual giving, careful consideration of self must be a priority.

The following is an except of an excellent article about compassion fatigue written by Dr. Paul Carlisle, professor of pastoral counseling and care at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Liberty, Missouri:

Imagine walking down a wooded path. You come upon a man pinned under a huge boulder. He writhes in pain and cries out to you for help. You find a strong limb and with great effort pry the rock off the man. This is a picture of burden-bearing, which the apostle Paul encourages in Galatians 6:2. But in this passage, the word burden denotes a “crushing weight.” That’s a warning flare that burden-bearing is fraught with danger and requires extreme caution. Return to the woods for a moment. You are leveraging the boulder and your strength gives way. The huge rock rolls back onto you and the person you’re trying to rescue. Rather than lifting a burden, you, too, are now pinned by its weight. Clearly, you’re to help those crushed by life’s problems. Yet imbalanced burden-bearing makes Christians vulnerable to a serious condition known as compassion fatigue (CF) — that’s when the pain, hurt, and suffering of others crushes you. It’s the stress of caring too much.
