For Adults with Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders


Tobacco use in the United States has decreased significantly in the last 50 years. Individuals facing substance use and mental health disorders, however, continue to smoke in numbers far greater than the general population. Research has shown that they are more likely to die from their tobacco use than from any of their other challenges.

Our project was designed to assess harm reduction techniques for helping eligible adults cut back on smoking or stop altogether. Enrollment ended April 2022. The project comes to a conclusion October 31, 2022. Final study results will be on this website.
