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.

Many of us have gone through periods in our lives when we have felt rejected.  When you experience rejection, you might try to overcompensate in an attempt to be accepted. This is because we have not learned to overcome rejection. Rejection can make us turn away from our dreams because of the fear of being rejected again.

There’s a physiological basis to the pain of rejection. Research shows that rejection triggers the same brain pathways that are activated when we experience physical pain, Winch says. In other words, we can relive and re-experience psychological pain more vividly than we can physical pain.

Frequently, we take rejection more personally than we should.

Guy Winch, Ph.D., a HuffPost blogger, psychologist and author, notes that many times the rejection does 50 per cent of the damage and we do the other 50 per cent of the damage. “We start with this high volume of negative self-talk and criticism that takes the rejection to another level,” he says.

Rejection knows no bounds, invading social, romantic and job situations alike. And it feels terrible because “it communicates the sense to somebody that they’re not loved or not wanted, or not in some way valued,” explains Geraldine Downey, Ph.D, professor of psychology at Columbia University whose research is focused on rejection.

If we build a strong resilient attitude against rejection by building up our self-esteem, then when rejection comes, we are better equipped emotionally to handle the situation. Remind yourself every day, that you are loved and are valuable.
