Quitting tobacco use is tough. Alternative tobacco cessation approaches such as acupuncture and hypnotherapy may act as promising, yet unconventional practices for helping individuals quit. Studies have demonstrated that both acupuncture and hypnotherapy may increase tobacco abstinence and encourage treatment retention among participants with co-occurring mental illnesses and addictions.


If you are a healthcare professional addressing tobacco cessation with your clients with behavioral health conditions, this webinar will help expand your tool belt of potential tobacco cessation approaches and practices. By providing insights into the use of acupuncture and hypnotherapy for tobacco cessation, attendees will gain knowledge on a few alternative approaches that some providers are using to help their clients quit.


During this webinar, participants will learn about:

  • Making the case for alternative tobacco cessation practices and the benefits of providing them as an option
  • How to integrate acupuncture and hypnotherapy into existing tobacco cessation programs including billing/reimbursement and workforce training
  • Successes and lessons from the field regarding the use of alternative approaches



 Disclaimer: Tobacco cessation approaches covered in this webinar are some of many cessation approaches, and may not work in every setting with every client. Acupuncture and hypnotherapy are not evidence based practices but research suggests that these are promising tools.
