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: Dealing with Discouragement



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

Where does the root of discouragement come from? Everyone experiences it at some point, even those of us in the ministry. You may have felt discouraged from time to time and you may be feeling discouraged right now. Some of us have already broken our 2015 new year’s resolutions, such as dieting.  We may feel discouraged because we really wanted to get this year off to a good start. So what causes discouragement? Discouragement can lead to stuck places and a vicious cycle of becoming disappointed with ourselves.  For example, you promised yourself that you would walk every day for 30 minutes.  You feel discouraged at the end of the day that you were not able to find that 30 minutes to meet your goal. A more attainable goal might be to start with 10 minutes. Find a partner who will hold you accountable.  Before you know it, you will be exercising 10 then 20 minutes, reaching your 30 minute goal several times a week.

How do we deal with discouragement? First, don’t be so hard on yourself. Don’t tackle something big right away.  Instead, try to break it up into smaller pieces.  Discouragement does not mean you’re doing something bad, it just means that there may be another way to deal with the situation.  Keep trying different approaches, like prayer, find scriptures or parables that deal with discouragement in order to encourage yourself.  Discouragement is a feeling that can be treated with a dose of hope and inspiration. It is one of the reasons King David overcame his many disappointments.  As a way to encourage himself, he wrote the book of Psalms with 39 verses or different ways.  You can use this as a tool today to encourage yourself.

There is hope for a better tomorrow!
