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.

Is the media coverage of crisis after crisis overwhelming you? Do you worry yourself to death?

Here are some clues about how to overcome worry God’s way.

Troubled times can steal our focus away from God and center on situations that are beyond our control. God shows us in His Word how to deal with anxiety and worry that trouble our lives. Philippians 4:4-9 says this about it:  “Always be full of joy in the Lord; I say it again, rejoice!”  This is the first clue: Focus on things that make you happy. However, staying in that mode all day can be a challenge for some.

The next clue is, “Let everyone see that you are unselfish and considerate in all you do. Remember that the Lord is coming soon.”  Doing things for others, makes you feel a sense of accomplishment and it leaves a warm fuzzy feeling inside of you. Sometimes volunteering your time keeps your mind busy on other things and takes your focus off the problem. Worrying can cause lack of sleep, restlessness, and poor appetite. You may have feelings of frustration, anger, agitation, even blaming God for the problem with which you are struggling.

The third clue:  Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers.  God is telling us not to worry. Is worry normal? On some occasions it is, but at other times, worry can consume you.  It can change your behavior and sometimes you can’t seem to get yourself back on course.

I really like the last portion on verse 7, where God says,” His peace, not ours, His peace (Beyond human understanding) will keep our thoughts and hearts quiet and at rest.”   How many of you need some rest from worry?

Final clue:  God tells us what to think about instead of worrying. “… and now, brothers, as I close this letter, let me say this one more thing: Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can praise God for and be glad about.  Keep putting into practice(s) all you learned from me and saw me doing, and the God of peace will be with you.” (Verse8 &9) Living Bible (TLB)
