UNC Tobacco Treatment Program
For 11 years, the UNC Tobacco Treatment Program (TTP) program has provided leadership for implementing comprehensive tobacco use treatment services, education and training, and dissemination of resources for promoting tobacco free communities. To view some of our success stories, check out the My Story page. The next one could be you!
What We Do
TTP offers treatment for tobacco dependence to thousands of people across North Carolina. Trained Tobacco Tobacco Treatment Specialists (TTS) give compassionate care, collaborating with patients and employees to develop plans for becoming tobacco free. These individualized plans include behavioral strategies, cessation medications, and identification of resources that support tobacco-free living. Those participating in our programs have a six-fold greater chance of becoming tobacco free. [/lead]
