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 is Beneficial to Your Health



A recent article in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “Does Faith Make You Healthier,” explores possible meanings behind multiple findings by social scientists that people who hold religious beliefs reap many health benefits.  The article points out that the social scientists who study this topic are measuring the results of religious beliefs in non-religious terms.  That many of the scientists who study this are non-believers is pointed to as ironic.  “In the social-scientific version, it’s not the afterlife that faith is good for, but well-being in this life,” author Ari Schulman states in the article.  Is it wrong to pursue a religious practice because it promises to bring you inner peace or prosperity while here on Earth?  Many evangelical leaders of today, such as Joel Osteen, preach about prosperity and happiness and how to attain it through faith and religious practices.  It’s possible that one is initially drawn to a belief system because of what it promises to deliver, and then during the process becomes a believer in the full sense.  These studies are likely based on individuals whose true faith is not based on what they are getting in return, thus, making it difficult to replicate the results in folks who are only interested in how religion can be of benefit to them.

Upon reading the article, I was reminded a conversation I had once with a friend about a company’s donation to a charity.  My opinion at the time was that it was different if a company made a donation to the charity because of an intention to support the charity’s mission rather than donating to the cause solely to improve its own reputation.  My friend disagreed stating that it didn’t matter, because either way the charity received the money.  C.S. Lewis seemed to agree with me and not my friend as he is quoted in the article as writing, “Men or nations who think they can revive the Faith in order to make a good society might just as well think they can use the stairs of Heaven as a short cut to the nearest chemist’s shop.”
