Course Description with Target Audience

Smoking rates among people with substance use disorders are high. Contrary to popular belief, many smokers with substance use disorders want to quit and can quit successfully. The skills gained through quitting smoking can enhance recovery from other substances. This course is designed for health care providers and behavioral health professionals interested in the most current research surrounding smoking cessation and substance use disorders.


At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the evidence regarding tobacco use among patients enrolled in addiction treatment
  • Discuss patient, program, and policy strategies to reduce tobacco use in addiction treatment populations
  • Identify and implement evidence-based treatment for treating tobacco dependence
