DESCRIPTION: 
Most individuals entering substance use treatment programs use tobacco products (ranging from cigarettes to electronic nicotine delivery systems), contributing to a health disparity that impacts mental and physical health and long-term recovery.  This workshop will focus on 2 aspects of addressing tobacco use in substance use treatment settings: working with clients who are not thinking about changing their tobacco use, and helping those who are ready to take action and move into tobacco recovery. We will review and utilize Motivational Interviewing techniques and evidence-based strategies for quitting. Participants will learn about recent research on including tobacco cessation in behavioral health treatment. Information will be applicable to individual and group treatment and clinicians will leave with new ideas and approaches for addressing tobacco use.

OBJECTIVES: 
Upon completion of this course, participants will (be able to):

  • Identify research rationale for intervening with tobacco users with mental health and substance use disorders.
  • Review impact of tobacco use on medications used by people with mental health conditions.
  • Identify and practice  two motivational interviewing strategies that help clients explore barriers to quitting tobacco use.
  • Design effective treatment plans for treating tobacco use that take behavioral health recovery issues into consideration.
  • Discuss methods for integrating tobacco education and treatment into individual and group treatment.
  • Identify next steps for utilizing information gained in this workshop.
