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.

Faith In The Workplace


Counselling and Support - Listening Hands

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

A recent article on the Huffington Post, “How Chaplains Lean Into The Painful Places” discusses an array of ways in which people serve as chaplains.

We know that the call of a chaplain can take many different forms: to pray for the sick in the hospital, conduct home visits, minister to those in prison as well as working with law enforcement agencies. Chaplains have also played an important role in our military.

We may not think of chaplains in the workplace, but this is another area within which chaplains contribute. For example, since 1984, Marketplace Chaplains of Texas, has had chaplains that minister to employees in the corporate world.  In Oklahoma, we have chaplains serving in the oil industry and within Tribal Affiliations.

There are many states that are expanding chaplaincy services to meet the needs of people in every area possible. This week, the National America Red Cross, launched their new program called, Spiritual Care Disaster Relief. The mission of the Red Cross is to bring together all faiths to serve people in times of distress or trauma.

Tyson, Chick Fil-A, Corporate Chaplains of America, (CCA) are examples of national corporations, which have expanded their spiritual commitment to serve their employees.  There are many rewards of receiving chaplaincy services in the workplace.   Chaplains might assist in debrief sessions in times of corporation downsizing, layoffs and “assist human resource personnel in matters extending beyond the employee” explained CCA.

In 2006, CCA shared that the chaplaincy services provided to the corporations,(has)  “… reduced turnover, increased job satisfaction, decreased tardiness,… improved employee productivity and spendt less money on training.”

Addressing the spiritual needs of your employees is, it seems, a win–win situation.
