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.

Gifting Obligations, Savory Sensations, Family Location, Celebratory Concoctions and so forth… (Pt 1)


There are many challenges that come up around the holiday season, which can pose threats to one’s emotional and physical welfare. The stresses caused by gifting obligations, savory taste sensations, the presence or absence of family, celebratory concoctions and so forth, all present potential complications during the holidays. Much of this depends on the person. However, a bit of leisurely forethought may prove to be beneficial in keeping holiday glee abounding for all. The holidays are a great time to enjoy family, friends, food, and obviously faith; don’t let my overly analytical cautionary tails spoil it for you. Nevertheless, here’s a list of things to consider depending on your individual soft spots:

Some people have difficulty with sobriety during the holiday season. It’s routine behavior for many people to drink too much during the holidays. Why do people drink so much this time of year? Well, there is an abundance of social functions, more so perhaps than throughout the rest of the year, unless you’re a real partygoer and in the “nightlife know.” It’s much easier to partake in a drink here and there if everyone else is, especially during New Year’s Eve celebrations.

It’s good to keep busy during the holidays, but the right kind of busy. With a little planning and a little forethought you may keep yourself from overindulging in your favorite drink. Preplanning, and booking your schedule up may enable you to say no to those last-minute engagements where alcohol might be offered. Consider taking a friend that does not drink to get-togethers that you plan on attending. If you don’t have a friend who abstains could you consider the possibility of making a new friend? It may be an extreme revelation for some but church folk do celebrate New Year’s like everyone else. Invite a friend, an acquaintance, or an accountability partner from your church to join you at gatherings where you know drinks will be offered; this may be just what you need to see you through to 2010 while keeping your commitments.
