Time: 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)
Description: Although tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the US and individuals with mental illnesses and substance use disorders have extremely high prevalence, it is usually overlooked in mental health and addictions treatment. This workshop will examine the benefits of tobacco cessation in improving depression, anxiety, affect and overall psychological quality of life and improvements in long term abstinence rates from alcohol or illicit drugs. Evidence based strategies, including a guideline-based brief intervention of 3 minutes will be explored.
