Integrating Tobacco Use Disorder Treatment in Behavioral Health Settings
Despite advances in lowering the rate of tobacco use and its health consequences, groups who have not benefited from this progress, are people with mental health conditions and/or substance use disorders, collectively known as the behavioral health population.
The American Lung Association has developed tools and curated partner resources to support this work, based on feedback from key stakeholders, including state and local tobacco control program staff, behavioral health program staff, clinical care providers and other content experts. This collection of resources is intended for State Tobacco Control Program staff and other public health professionals, working with providers, organizations, agencies and systems serving people with mental illness and substance use disorders to treat tobacco use and dependence.
