Tobacco Treatment Action Kit

Nearly two-thirds of New Yorkers who smoke try to quit each year, but many do so without resources or support. Some New Yorkers may not be ready or interested in quitting but may care about protecting those around them, saving money or participating in activities that are meaningful to them. Although tobacco use treatment has traditionally been framed as only appropriate for patients who are ready to quit, tobacco treatment medications can help all patients avoid uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, whether they want to quit, reduce their use or avoid smoking in specific situations (such as at home, at work or in public spaces).

As a health care provider, you can support all your patients who smoke or vape with tobacco use treatment, including medications, to help them reach their goals. This Action Kit contains tools and resources to aid in your treatment of patients who smoke or vape, regardless of their readiness to quit.
