Proposal

Incorporating Smoking Cessation into Behavioral Health Treatment Protocols

We aim to create both single session and flexible multi- session group therapy manuals for smoking cessation that are Motivational Enhancement and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) informed and that address the special needs of Maryland BH consumers who are smokers. These manuals will be user friendly and have handouts, videos, and guides for mental health and substance abuse counselors to enable them to use and incorporate smoking cessation interventions into their programs.
