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: Can Christians be two faced?

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

The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans, “I want to do what is right, but I can’t.  I want to do what is good, but I don’t.  I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.”(Romans 7:18)

As long as we are on this earth, we will have this struggle.  It can be difficult to do the right thing.  As a result, some of us develop different faces, or identities, for different situations.  We go to church on Sunday, and we put on a good show. We hide behind masks and tell everyone we know that everything is fine.

Too many Christians are one way at church and another way at home. When we put on different faces depending on who we are with, our life quickly becomes insincere as well as complicated.  It’s hard to keep track of which face we put on where.  If we are honest with ourselves, we can begin to answer the question of why we felt compelled to portray ourselves one way in public, say at church, and then another way in private.  Is it that we want people to think that we have everything under control all the time?  Are we setting unrealistic expectations for our life?  Are we afraid of the judgment of others?  We all struggle with doing the right thing and with being true to who we are no matter who we are around.

Christ gives us hope when He tells us in John 16:33,” These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
