Why address tobacco dependence?
  • Addressing tobacco addiction concurrently with other addiction treatment increases sobriety rates up to 20%
  • Adults living with serious mental illness who smoke die up to 25 years earlier
  • Individuals with mental illness are just as interested in quitting as the general public, but need additional support to succeed
