The Tobacco Treatment Program’s primary goal is to support tobacco-free individuals and communities. We are here to help with the support that you need to live tobacco-free.

The Tobacco Treatment Program can provide you with the information and tools you need to become tobacco free. A treatment specialist will work with you to make a plan that works for you and your lifestyle including dealing with withdrawal, using tobacco cessation medications, and strategies for changing behaviors that are linked to your tobacco use. We will follow-up with you for adjustment of the treatment plan and medications, as needed, and give you on-going support to stop smoking and prevent relapse.

Individual appointments with a tobacco treatment specialist at the UNC Family Medicine are scheduled on Wednesday mornings and afternoons. In order to spend the majority of the first visit focusing on the treatment plan, we ask new patients to complete an Initial assessment online before the first appointment.
