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.

Overcoming the Odds


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

“Money is the cause of so many grievances. The Number one reason for divorce in America is because of finances,” said Angela Alexander author of Subject to Change.

When our finances are not properly managed, it keeps people in a negative status.  Alexander further said, “that the motive behind many crimes show ties into money.”  In marriages, it is either both spouses working and not having any time for each other; one spouse is working or both unemployed due to economic work related stress.

Money and Marriage Aren’t Everything, said the author of the book, Farnoosh Torabi. Discussing money management with a financial counselor is much better than discussing divorce plans with a lawyer. It is one of those topics that people do not like to talk about before getting married. It is important, however, and an obstacle that can be overcome without shame or blame. Communicating effectively about money shows one’s character of responsibility and accountability towards one another.

Overcoming the odds of financial stress in the family is about trust, budgeting, doing what you can with what you have and building from there. Torabi says in her book “Money and Marriage Aren’t Everything that the struggles of financial burdens “…don’t stem from navigating the logistics of managing money, but rather the mental game and emotional forces at play than the coordination of who pays for what and how to make sense of of the dollar signs.”

When it comes to understanding the psychological impact of lack and debt, we must do everything we can to minimize these stressors’ impact on our daily lives. We can overcome by recognizing these symptoms ahead of time, just as you would when you recognize flu-like symptoms. We prepare our finances ahead, plan ahead, plan for emergencies and overcome unexpected financial impact.  The most important element is to pray for strength, wisdom and come out of your comfort zone to seek help.
