Description

Tobacco-Free Policy: Improving Quality of Care in Residential Drug and Alcohol Services

Friday, October 26, 2018

Did you know that tobacco use disorder within our clinical population contributes to the opioid epidemic?

Treating tobacco use disorder concurrently with other substance use disorders is safe, improves treatment outcomes, reduces social stigma, and enhances the health and quality of life of people in recovery.

This three-hour workshop will include information on the epidemiology of overlap between opioids and tobacco and why effective treatment for opioid dependence requires a simultaneous approach to treating tobacco. We’ll talk about why you don’t need to make a choice between treating opioid use or tobacco use and how treating concurrently will improve outcomes in both.


In addition, recommendations will be made for program and system level approaches to integrate recovery-oriented tobacco interventions into existing programming, “denormalize” tobacco use in the treatment setting, and strategy for engaging staff members whose buy-in is critical to the success of your tobacco-free policy.

As a champion of the TRWI project, we look forward to seeing you and any staff you designate for attendance at this interactive training!
