Join hundreds of health professionals throughout California who are referring their patients quickly and easily to the free, evidence-based, tobacco cessation services of the California Smokers’ Helpline via our web-based referral service.

Studies have shown that smokers who use Helpline counseling are twice as likely to quit as those who don’t. Seventy percent of smokers visit a physician at least once a year and according to the U.S. Public Health Service Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence: Clinical Practice Guideline, 2008 Update, “Telephone quitline counseling is effective with diverse populations and has broad reach. Therefore, both clinicians and health care delivery systems should ensure patient access to quitlines and promote quitline use.”

Listen to Jyothi Marbin, MD, of UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland, and JoAnne Roy, LVN, of San Franciso General Hospital talk about the benefits of the Helpline's cessation services and web-based referral service as well as successful Helpline clients talk about their experience:
