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.

Troubled Souls: Take Up Your Mat and Walk


Author: Lydia D’Ross, Brookhaven Hospital, Renewal Program Outreach Chaplain


The word “psychology” is defined by Dr. Neal Goldsmith, as the study of the soul.

Goldsmith said that the word psychology was created to reclaim the true, original meaning of the word psychology–the treatment of the soul, spirit, mind, life and breath of the human development.

As a community outreach chaplain, I have spoken to many pastors and community leaders about the community’s need for restoration and individual healing for the soul.  Many are saying that their members are distressed about what they hear and what they are seeing. The complain of feeling anxiety, stress and financial struggles.

There is a true connection between religion, spirituality and mental health. When is our soul in trouble? Even Jesus had to deal with many people with troubled souls. A perfect example was the story in the Gospel of John when a crippled man could not get in the Pool of Bethesda, where people were known to be healed when the waters were rippled by angels once a year. This man was troubled as he sat at the pool waiting every day and never moved. He was troubled man because every time the water rippled, someone else would jump in ahead of him. Who knew how many years he was crippled and waited at the pool of Bethesda. Then Jesus, knowing of his troubles, asked him, “Do you want to be healed?” The man was troubled by his soul and could not see the healer in front of him. When the man finally realized who Jesus was, he said “yes.” Jesus immediately took care of his troubles and said “take up your mat and walk.”

How many of us are facing challenges today and don’t accept the invitation of our savior and take up our mats and move on. We all need someone to help us move forward.

Let us remind ourselves that we have hope in the promises of God’s word. John 14:1 says “Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me.


Brookhaven Hospital Renewal Christian Care program is here to serve you, to help you recognize symptoms of behaviors that may be need to be address by professional counseling.
