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.

Overcoming Procrastination in the New Year

Resolutions

Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital

What does procrastination actually mean? At times, we know that we are all guilty of it.  Romans 8:7 says, “The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.”

Procrastination is the thief of time. Father George Morelli wrote in his article The Spiritual Roots of Procrastination, that there are two scientific psychological thoughts on procrastination: realistic verses unrealistic.

Father Morelli’s research on procrastination explains that realistic procrastination “occurs when a person may not have the physical or mental ability to accomplish a task or is prevented from performing a task by an appropriate authority. ” Morelli further said that unrealistic procrastination comes from “…anxiety or depression that has no basis in reality.” In some instances, the situation could have been prevented if we were able to address the situation head on. We may say to ourselves, “I will take care of it tomorrow,” but tomorrow never comes. Morelli calls that “Emotional Reasoning” theory.

Can procrastination become a condition of interruption and dysfunction in your life? Absolutely!

Spiritual procrastination is dangerous.  Procrastination is the act of willfully delaying the doing of something that should be done. Scripture says you procrastinate for several reasons, but one of the biggest challenges can be fear. Sometimes it is just pure laziness. Proverbs says “Lazy people want much, but get little, while the diligent are prospering.” (Proverbs 13:4)  Colossians says, “we should be diligent in everything we do because we are living our lives for God.” (Colossians 3:23)

I like what Jesus said in Luke 9:62, “No procrastination. No backward looks. You can’t put God’s Kingdom off till tomorrow. Seize the day.”

Let’s seize the day, and take care of business. No more procrastination! Make that your goal for 2017. I am.

Brookhaven Hospital’s Renewal Christian Care Pastoral Seminar will be held on January 12th, 2016. For more information or to RSVP, call 918.430.8350.
