Educational Objectives

Following completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:

  • Describe population-based trends of tobacco use among smokers with co-occurring mental health and/or substance abuse disorders.
  • Recognize and counter the factors in mental health and addiction treatment settings that have served to maintain tobacco use in populations with mental health and/or substance use disorders.
  • Identify and implement evidence-based treatment for treating tobacco dependence.

Statement of Need
Persons with mental illnesses die up to 25 years earlier and suffer increased medical co-morbidity. They often die from tobacco related diseases. Behavioral health providers are less likely to provide smoking cessation treatment than any other provider group. There are system, provider, and consumer factors that have historically lead to low intervention rates. A growing body of research shows that smokers with co-occurring psychiatric and/or addictive disorders want to quit, are able to quit, and quitting does not threaten their recovery. With this knowledge, behavioral health and primary care providers can encourage and help their patients with mental illness and/or substance use disorders to quit smoking.
