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.

Toxic People in the Workplace

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

Last week we talked about toxic thoughts and how we sometimes repeat what was modeled by our parents. If we change our thought patterns by inserting positive messages, we can break this cycle.

This week we are going to talk about toxic people in our lives. The label “toxic” means something that drains life and energy.  We all know these types of people, and every workplace has them.  They are mostly interested in spreading negativity, and focusing everyone on the negative aspects of every situation.

A method to detoxify yourself from these situations, is separation. It may be difficult when work colleagues have become friends, but if you stay around them, you will be influenced in a negative way.  Your instincts will tell you that you are in a toxic relationship when you are not being honored or respected.  Once the toxic person is identified, try to limit your time with that individual.  Challenge yourself to see the positive in every situation.  If you seek out positive people to be around, you will notice a difference in your own mood and attitude.

“Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else’s.” ~Billy Wilder
