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)

Gary Smalley: Keys to Marital Success

Share

Married couples can get into ruts in their relationship, unhealthy cycles of behavior that if left unchecked can damage the relationship permanently. The key, according to Gary Smalley, director of the Smalley Relationship Center, is identifying what couples are doing to perpetuate the cycle of unhealthy behavior. According to some of the research done by the Smalley Group, each individual in the marriage relationship has their own unique “fear or anger buttons;” These buttons or triggers could be “feeling inadequate, belittled, controlled, abandoned, rejected, and disconnected…” According to Smalley, learning your spouse’s particular triggers or buttons can end the cycle of unhealthy marital behavior. Here is an excerpt of the article:

I got a chance to chat by phone with this author of 19 books, including the Angel Award winning “The Language of Love,” and I discovered that the founder and chairman of the board for the Smalley Relationship Center was just as approachable over the phone as he would be if he were standing in my own living room. Having seen the divorce rate skyrocket, I was curious what this seasoned expert with 30-plus years of marital counseling experience had to say on the topic of spousal conflict and resolution. I was especially intrigued when I learned that separated couples that come to the counseling team at the Smalley Relationship Center can expect a 90 percent success rate of staying together. So, what’s the secret?

One of the things I noticed that Smalley encourages couples to do is to get involved in a group, perhaps a church group with a focus on married life or a group of friends. Additionally, when a marriage relationship is struggling, it’s a good idea to seek out a professional counselor, in particular one that keeps Christ as a central theme during your sessions.
