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 in the Line of Duty

Lydia D'Ross - Chaplain

Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital

Brookhaven Hospital recently held a seminar as part of our quarterly Pastoral Seminar Series, “Faith in the Line of Duty.”  The panel consisted of leaders from the community who serve in the front lines as legislators, chaplains, pastors and law enforcement officers. Panelist speakers included City Counselor Jeannie Cue, Reverend Sharyn Cosby of Southeast Tulsa Spirit Christian Church and Board Certified Clinical Chaplain with the National Association of Veterans Affairs Chaplains. Also, we were honored to have on the panel, chaplains from Tulsa County Sheriff’s Department and Tulsa Police Department.

In attendance, we had representatives from the community, pastors representing their churches, community professional chaplains from Edmond, Stillwater, Muskogee and chaplains from mental health field.

Each panel participant shared their story of faith, their work in the community to help heal our community and move forward towards resolution in better communication between citizens and police officers.

One memorable moment was when one of the panelists, Dahran Goudeau, law enforcement chaplain for Tulsa Police Department (TPD),  Pastor of Modern Faith Ministries Church without Walls and Head Chaplain at Parkside Hospital, shared the important need for TPD Chaplains not only to minister to the victims and their families, but also to the officers and their families, because trauma “affects us all.”

Rev. Cosby shared her experience as an African American, a woman and as a Senior Pastor,  and the obstacles she has overcome. In light of her experience, she has made it her mission to educate the African American young people about the importance of respecting those in positions of authority, but also to advocate for their own needs.

Councilor Cue shared about her faith and as Chairperson of the City Council, how she works with all districts to empower pastors to get more involved in community restoration. She applauded Mayor Dewey Bartlett and Chief Chuck Jordan for their transparency and quickness of response to the recent tragic event of the death of Terence Crutcher by a Tulsa police officer.

As a community, pastors play a vital role in being part of the solution by engaging in community discussion, helping their community heal by having town hall prayer meetings and much more.
