                                                                                                          Research indicates that 69% of people who currently smoke would like to quit smoking, and 52% try to quit smoking. Tobacco cessation strategies are proven to save lives, improve quality of life, and save money. 

Only about 4–7% of unaided quit attempts are successful, but counseling and medication treatments exist that significantly improve these odds with quit rates reaching as high as 30-40%. At the same time, healthcare reform and other federal and state mandates increasingly require that tobacco screening, assessment, treatment, and referral are offered. 

Quitlines are toll-free telephone centers staffed by trained cessation experts. For clinicians, they provide an easy, fast, and effective way to help smokers quit. By simply identifying smokers, advising them to quit, and sending them to a free phone service, clinicians can save thousands of lives. - See more at: QuitLine Provider Referrals.

Broomfield Tobacco, Prevention, and Partnership Program offers free provider and office training and technical assistance to integrate tobacco treatment into daily clinic practice.
