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.

Gratitude From All Directions


by Rev. Tom Gray

In our dining room stands a solid oak dining table that my grandparents bought about 100 years ago. It has seen a lot of use, attested by subtle stains and marks that, for me, enhance the table. People I love sat at that table and the marks are theirs (and mine).

I remember summers with my grandparents, and my grandpa seated in his captain’s chair. He was quiet, but had a presence of authority that kept us respectfully quiet at dinner (most of the time). My grandmother was a superb cook and kept us well fed.


What I remember most were the Thanksgiving Days when our whole family, including some great aunts, came together with food, prayer, and fellowship. After lunch, we went together to church, where my grandpa was the Beadle (an obscure Presbyterian office) and the custodian. Then and now, Thanksgiving was and is my favorite holiday.


I am blessed and thankful, not just for the things we have, but for the people in my life. The passage of time has changed the faces around our table. My grandparents died in the early 70s, as did my Mom and my brother, Mark. My Dad lived into the new century. My brother, Steve, entered heaven last Christmas. My eldest brother, Ron, and I are the two left of those memorable Thanksgivings.


Now I’m the Grandpa. My family still gathers for Thanksgiving. One group of us here in Oklahoma, the others in heaven. I cherish the celebration this Thursday. I’m comforted by the promise of that future feast with all my loved ones.

People will come from the east, west, north, and south and will sit down at the table in the kingdom of God.

(Luke 13:29)
