Integrating Tobacco Treatment into Substance Use Treatment Settings: Addressing the Myths
Date: Friday, August 19th, 2022, noon-1:00pm
Speaker: Megan Piper, PhD is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Research Director with the Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention.
People living with a substance use disorder are more than three times as likely as the general population to smoke. Evidence-based tobacco treatments can improve long-term smoking cessation and, in turn, enhance recovery from all substances. As a result, the Wis. Administrative Code ch. DHS 75 revision (effective Oct. 1, 2022) requires all programs certified under DHS 75 have a written policy outlining the service’s approach to assessment and treatment of concurrent tobacco use disorders.
Join the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention, in collaboration with the Division of Care and Treatment Services, on August 19th for a webinar on integrating evidence-based tobacco treatments in substance use treatment settings.
During the webinar, attendees will explore common myths on smoking and recovery, examine potential roadblocks of integrating tobacco treatment in substance use treatment settings, and discuss evidence-based treatments for tobacco use disorder.
