New Statewide Vaping Support Services
E-cigarette use, commonly referred to as vaping, by Maine youth has significantly increased over the past few years, with 29% of high school students reporting they currently use these products.

We are excited to provide new vaping treatment services, now available for all Mainers needing support with quitting vaping or in working with a loved one to quit.
