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.

Times of Silence

by Rev. Tom Gray

Meditation is a good and healthy practice in life, but how do you go about doing it? Meditation is a conscious focus on truth. It can be aided by quiet and concentration, but there is no single way to go about it.

Many Christian folk, such as I, begin by reading Scriptures, then pausing to reflect (meditate) on what they mean. This time can include singing a hymn or other Christian song. It also includes times of silence as we focus on what God wants in our lives.

I think the most important thing about meditation is that we need times of quiet—times when we lock out the noise and busyness of our world and allow our hearts and mind to focus on what God wants from us. Studies have shown that this kind of spiritual practice increases our sense of well-being, and may actually improve our health.

You don’t need to be a spiritual “nut” to meditate and benefit from it. Start out by setting a time in your day when and where you won’t be disturbed (as best you can accomplish this). Fifteen minutes would be a good interval to start. Have the Scripture you want to think on selected before you start. Begin by asking God to open his word to you. Read the passage and think on it. Listen to a hymn or Christian song. Sing it yourself if you wish. That’s the start. Try it out for a few weeks and see if you can expand the time some—perhaps a half hour..

I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds.

Psalm 77:12
