Lessons Learned from the Tobacco Integration Awards: 11/3/2021
People coping with a mental illness have a very high prevalence of smoking. A recent survey of clients receiving care from Wisconsin Community Support Programs (CSP) or Comprehensive Community Services programs (CCSs) found that 55% are current smokers. A recent study documented that over 90% of people seeking care for opiate addiction in rural Wisconsin smoke. People coping with a mental illness and/or other addiction are paying a staggering health and financial price because of their addiction to tobacco. These individuals want to quit and do quit, but it is harder for them to quit. Their tobacco journey requires more treatment and greater support. Addressing their tobacco use to improve their health and financial resources is a key challenge for the behavioral health treatment system. To address this challenge, the Division of Care and Treatment Services (DCTS) teamed with the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI) to provide ten “Tobacco Integration Awards” to encourage behavioral health organizations to take concrete tobacco integration steps. These ten behavioral health programs will share the lessons learned as they integrated tobacco treatment into their services.
Health Professionals who work in the fields of behavioral health or public health, including physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, case managers, counselors, substance abuse counselors, Certified Peer Specialists (CPS), Recovery Coaches, Tobacco Treatment Specialists (TTS), psychotherapists, behavioral health managers, and students.
