Walnut Creek, California 94596


Purpose:

Examine the efficacy of a stepped-care smoking cessation intervention for current and former smokers in chemical dependency treatment programs. We hypothesize that those who received the stepped-care intervention will be more likely to report smoking abstinence and drug or alcohol abstinence at 6 months.


Study summary:

The objective of the study is to document and systematically investigate the use of smoking cessation strategies targeting substance abuse outpatient smokers at various level of readiness to quit smoking. Little is known regarding the best practices in treating tobacco use among clients in drug abuse treatment and very few drug abuse treatment programs currently offer smoking cessation services. The purpose of this developmental study is to develop and pre-test a stepped-care smoking cessation intervention in an outpatient drug abuse treatment program at a managed care setting that targets both current and former smokers. The stepped-care intervention consists of various components that aim at matching the treatment needs of smokers across the whole spectrum of smoking status and readiness to quit smoking. The following specific aims will be pursued: 1. Develop a stepped-care smoking cessation intervention targeting both current and former smokers who are admitted to an outpatient drug abuse treatment program. Special attention will be paid to former smokers, as intervention techniques for them are not well developed. Also, intervention content will be modified from that used in smoking interventions with the general population to content that is targeted at smokers who are in drug abuse treatment 2. Pre-test the efficacy of the stepped-care smoking cessation intervention. 3. Examine the feasibility of implementing the stepped-care smoking cessation intervention. 4. Examine the impact of the smoking intervention on drug and alcohol use outcomes at 6-month post initiation of smoking cessation treatment.
