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.

The Fruit of Goodness

Cross

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

In what ways is goodness a fruit of the Holy Spirit?  Goodness is a discernment between the flesh and the spirit.  In other words, the spiritual fruit of goodness enables sinful man to do good and to be good.

If you sense that sometimes you feel like there is a war going inside you, that may be a good sign.  Since goodness doesn’t necessarily come easily, it could mean that you are pursuing goodness.  Romans 8:7 says badness comes naturally, but goodness does not. It is a fruit that needs to be developed and worked on purposefully everyday. Everyone has a good and bad nature inside of them, it is what you decide to do with it that produces a negative or positive fruit.

In Christ, we develop a relationship with Him because He is perfect. Once we allow the Fruit of the Spirit to begin to change our lives, all these wonderful fruits that God has given us, the  fruit of “…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness gentleness, faithfulness, self–control and goodness. [Galatians 5: 22-23]  This is the awesome character of God. This is who He is inside of us, through us and around us.

Do not confuse “doing good” with having the fruit of goodness. They are two opposite traits. You can be active in doing good and with the best of intentions, but not have the fruit of goodness inside of you.  [Luke 6: 32-33]  “Do not grow weary while doing good, for a good season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith [fellow believers]’   Galatians 6:9-10.

Brookhaven Hospital’s Renewal Christian Care program is here to serve you, to help you recognize symptoms or behaviors that may need to be addressed with mental health counseling.
