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.

Faith-based Approach to Substance Abuse Counseling



There is a growing interest in faith-based approaches to the treatment of substance abuse, and their implications for health and well-being (Fetzer Institute, 1999).

Castelli (1997) defines faith-based organizations to include congregations as well as national networks such as Catholic Charities or the YMCA. This follows from the fact that many programs, although not associated with any organized religion, may endorse 12-step conceptions of spirituality and the existence of a higher power.   Although they may not constitute a religion per se, 12-step programs do promote practices such as prayer, meditation, confession, and penance (White, 1998)

The line between secular and faith-based programs becomes further blurred in that recovery programs endorsing a 12-step philosophy typically emphasize spiritual transformation to the critical aspect towards recovery (Albers, 1997; Alcoholics Anonymous [AA], 1995). Usually the faith-based approach instituted in a church setting is often led by someone who has been through the healing process and can incorporate faith into the 12 step process. It may not be led by someone who is academically trained in the professional counseling field.

White (1998) has extensively detailed the importance of rituals in 12-step culture such as prayer/meditation, testifying or witnessing regarding faith (or recovery), and testimonials regarding individual salvation (or recovery).

What is unique about the faith-based approach toward healing in substance abuse recovery is that there is a certain bond and a new social network formed. When we include a faith-based approach from a professional aspect, there is a higher rate of a success.

Pastors, Brookhaven Hospital’s Renewal Christian Care program is here to serve you, to help you and your members recognize substance abuse symptoms that may need treatment.  Please call us today, 888.298.HOPE (4673)!
