Decreased Substance Abuse in Suicidal Veterans after Receiving Spirituality-Based Crisis Intervention

Speaker at Addiction Medicine, Behavioral Health and Psychiatry 2022 - Christina Javete
James A. Haley VA Hospital, United States
Title : Decreased Substance Abuse in Suicidal Veterans after Receiving Spirituality-Based Crisis Intervention

Abstract:

The Crisis, Orientation, Refresh, and Empower (CORE) intervention was developed and is a short phase-driven and easily comprehensible crisis intermediation that evokes a spiritual-cognitive-behavioral approach to a veteran’s recovery. CORE researchers found that this crisis intervention, in addition to face interaction, can be delivered via telehealth.  Its goal is to derive spiritual empowerment in the mental health vulnerable populations as a coping tool. CORE was performed in the VAMC inpatient psychiatric unit, with patients who were admitted for suicidal ideation/attempt SI/SA.  Preliminary clinical outcomes indicated an increase in current and new mental health service compliance along with a decrease in SI/SA rehospitalizations among Veterans one year after receiving the CORE crisis intervention. CORE will be entering in its second phase as part of one’s treatment.

Biography:

Christina Javete, LMHC is a licensed mental health counselor and a nationally certified counselor working for the Department of Veteran Affairs in Tampa, FL. Working on the inpatient psychiatric unit for the past 5 years has inspired the work of decreasing substance use and increasing mental health involvement in veterans who were admitted for suicidal ideation. The CORE (Crisis Orientation Refresh Empower) intervention is a brief spiritually counseling intervention where the veteran utilizes their faith in their recovery. This is also done to promote the use of another resource for recovery, the VA Chaplains. After the study was completed, it was found that mental health care adherence to treatment plans and decrease in substance use occurred. CORE will be entering in its second phase as part of one’s treatment
