Tobacco Cessation

For free individual smoking cessation counseling, refer patients to the Illinois Tobacco Quitline, call 1-866-QUIT-YES or 1-866-784-8937. You may also complete a Tobacco Treatment Enrollment Form for your patient and the Illinois Tobacco Quitline will contact them directly. Also available through the Illinois Tobacco Quitline, is assistance with nicotine patch therapy; this program is called Break the Habit.

Here is a presentation from the CDC on Tobacco Cessation for physicians.

A Tobacco Cessation Health Care Provider Toolkit is also available for your use.  The toolkit includes patient communication tools, office tools, resources, continuing education opportunities and much more.
