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.

On the lighter side (no pun intended) of a holiday discussion, most are posed with the question “to eat or not to eat?” “Is food my friend or foe?” Please understand that I’m not a nutritionist, but having thus said, if you must overindulge during the holidays try being “selectively gluttonous;” I’m joking, obviously, but if you have to let your guard down, do so for one meal; don’t throw self-control out the window for the entirety of the winter months. Sometimes compromising with one’s appetite is the best way to not totally give in to it. Giving in to your holiday appetites for the duration of one meal may satisfy you enough so that self-discipline can be exercised the rest of the time. Make sure to “say no to leftovers.” Yes, you can do it. If grandma forces them on you with those loving mittens, you could box them up and take them to someone less fortunate.

Another factor specific to the holiday season that can potentially interrupt one’s emotional peace is the stress of spending, spending, and more spending. There is such an awful lot of pressure to perform for family members, to engage in traditional giving and receiving practices, but in every situation planning and a bit of forethought can help. A little organization and forethought regarding spending during the holidays can make a big difference. Some may think that this is absolutely absurd in a consumer-oriented, capitalistic society such as ours, but talking with the family about scaling back on gifts may not hurt nearly as much as you think. There’s several ways to do this; however, simply establishing new traditions based on more of an acknowledgement and celebration of each festive event may be just what your family needs.
