What it is

The Tobacco Intervention program combines numerous approaches that target the fears and problems you may have when quitting. We will help you find a quitting method that suits your needs and offer you tools to cope with challenges that may come up while you’re trying to quit.  

What to expect

  • To be met where you’re at in the quitting process without pressure and with acceptance.
  • Counseling to address social, emotional, habitual and spiritual habits associated with tobacco use.
  • Help to discover what your life will look like without tobacco to make the transition easier.
  • A discussion about nicotine replacement and medication options, and determination of the best quit aid, if any, for you.
  • To receive an individual quit plan tailored to your goals and lifestyle.

Inpatient Program:

Current patients who are tobacco users or who have quit within the last 12 months can expect a visit from a certified tobacco treatment specialist. This specialist will ensure that you’re comfortable during your hospital stay. Nicotine replacement can typically be provided if you’re experiencing withdrawal symptoms during your time in the hospital.

Outpatient Program:

During the outpatient program, you can expect three visits with a certified tobacco treatment specialist. These visits typically include:

  • Initial consultation (about one hour)
  • First follow-up within 3-7 days of targeted quit date – or as needed
  • Second follow-up within 2-4 weeks from targeted quit date – or as needed

Additional follow-ups as needed or desired
