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.

Should You Strive For Reconciliation?

Share

Throughout life numerous relationships are broken or breached. Trust is hurt, sometimes because of a perceived wrong, other times because of a real offense. No matter the reason, or who was wrong, we experience breaks with friends, family, acquaintances, and members of the same beliefs.

When this happens, it is common to seek reconciliation. Broken or damaged relationships hurt terribly, and the emotional weight can be heavy. However, Phil Monroe, Professor of Counseling and Psychology at Biblical Seminary, suggests reconciliation shouldn’t be your goal. Instead, you should aim for objectives that can absolutely be accomplished, that might work towards a possible reconciliation, but more than anything help yourself to be a better person.

Think of it as cultivating plants. You can’t force a plant to grow, but you can cultivate an environment that best facilitates growth. You can aim to regularly water and fertilize plants, aim to buy the plants best suited for your environment, but there is nothing you can do to force a plant to grow. However, if you cultivated a good environment, that plant is more likely to spring from the ground.

Similarly, if you aim for achievable goals that cultivate yourself spiritually, emotionally, and mentally, you will become a better person while improving your chances of reconciliation. Even if reconciliation isn’t a possibility, you can give back to God and find new relationships through living a positive life.

Monroe offers examples of goals you can set that are accomplish able even if reconciliation is not. By aiming for objectives that are certain to succeed, you open yourself to let God take care of the bigger picture.
