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.

RENEWAL Devotional: A Cup of Coffee with God

Written by: Lydia D’Ross, Renewal Program Outreach Chaplain and ordained minister

My days just don’t seem right if I don’t take the time in the morning to have my cup of coffee. Do you ever wake up some mornings and say “I really could use a good cup of coffee today”?

God says the same thing to us in a different way. Every morning when the sun rises, God waits for us patiently to spend time with Him. If you can visualize God waiting at your coffee table with a cup of Joe, and imagine Him saying “sit down with me for a few minutes and tell me about your day.”  When I do this, it makes my day go smoother. Of course, mornings do not always go that way. Some mornings are so busy because we either get up late, or did not sleep well due to worry, or we just don’t feel well physically.  I know when I don’t spend time with God, I have hectic days. It just seems to run smoother, when I make time with God a priority in my morning.  I seem to be better able to focus on Him throughout the day.  God loves it when we think about Him. He thinks about us constantly, because He cares about us and about how we spend our time.

In the book of Jeremiah 29:11-13(NIV)  “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  God knows your plans, but He wants you to tell Him, so you can be blessing to the world.”

Begin every morning with a cup of coffee with God. He is waiting for you, and He also provides you with other forms of support.  You are not alone, and, if you are struggling, we at Brookhaven’s RENEWAL program are here to help.
