Teen Smoking, Vaping & Dipping: How Should Providers Respond?
Although teen cigarette smoking has dropped to historic lows, rates of electronic cigarette use is more than double that of regular cigarettes. The U.S. surgeon general has declared adolescent nicotine use a pediatric epidemic. This webinar will provide participants with an overview of current research on rates of nicotine and tobacco use with respect to age and race/ethnicity and the effects of nicotine on the adolescent brain. All cigarette smoking including, electronic cigarette use, or smokeless tobacco use have associated health risks. Participants will obtain an understanding of how nicotine use often accompanies other drug use and therefore, needs to be addressed as part of all substance use disorder treatments. Participants will be provided ideas for implementing effective evidence-based strategies for use with teens.
