Our Services

UNC’s Tobacco Treatment Program (TTP) provides services regardless of ability to pay. We provide services across the UNC Health Care System:

  • UNC Family Medicine Center: Open to all community members
  • NC Cancer Hospital: TTP’s on-site specialists engage patients from across the state who are fighting cancer. By becoming tobacco free, patients increase treatment effectiveness and reduce risk for cancer recurrence.
  • UNC Hospitals: Trained specialists ensure that patients receive medications for withdrawal upon admission to the hospital, resources for remaining tobacco free after discharge, and follow-up support.
  • Worksite Programs: TTP works with local and regional employers, including UNC Health Care and the Town of Chapel Hill, to help their employees become and remain tobacco-free.
  • Our newest affiliate program, TTP @ Rex Healthcare: In 2019, UNC TTP partnered with Rex Health Care to build a tobacco treatment program working with cancer patients in Wake and Johnston counties. Stay tuned to learn more about how to get connected with treatment at Rex!
