RESULTS

While 14% of the adult U.S. population smokes, these rates are 2-4 times higher for patients with psychiatric or substance use disorders (Kalman 2005). Patients with substance use disorders want to quit, and they can successfully quit if they receive evidence-based interventions tailored to their needs (Kalman 2010). Contrary to the belief that tobacco cessation will hinder treatment, it actually enhances mental health and non-nicotine substance use treatment outcomes (Lemon 2003, McKelvey 2017). Consequently, efforts should be made to integrate nicotine dependence treatment into substance use treatment through multilevel (clinical, program, and system) changes (Baca and Yahne 2009Prochaska 2004). Taking Texas Tobacco Free (TTTF) is a multicomponent, tobacco free workplace program that expanded in 2017 to work with substance use treatment centers and community agencies serving clients enrolled in substance use treatment. TTTF helps centers build their capacity to treat tobacco dependence among clients with substance use disorders.

 

We are currently recruiting new centers! If you are working with a substance use treatment center or community agency interested in becoming tobacco-free, please contact Bryce Kyburz (Bryce.Kyburz@integralcare.org).
