Tobacco/Smoking Cessation in Behavioral Health

 

Tobacco use exerts a heavy toll on the health of persons with mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders. For decades, healthcare professionals, especially those working in the field of behavioral health, tolerated the use of tobacco among the behavioral health population, assuming that their primary condition was far more important than tobacco cessation. Some behavioral health professionals even used tobacco as rewards during therapy, and some were fearful that stopping the use of tobacco might worsen the underlying behavioral health condition. Many professionals also thought that tobacco users with behavioral health conditions were unable or unwilling to quit. That situation is now changing as behavioral health professionals learn more about the impact of tobacco use on this population. The destruction of previous myths about tobacco cessation in the behavioral health population is also changing the way behavioral health professionals view tobacco use. This course provides a review of tobacco use and cessation in the behavioral health population, with special emphasis on smoking. In this course, you will learn the epidemiology of tobacco use, the myriad of effects on a person’s health, the special toll smoking exerts on persons with behavioral health conditions, and the interaction among smoking, mental illness, and substance use disorders. You will also learn how to incorporate smoking cessation into the treatment plan, including the use of counseling, FDA-approved smoking cessation medications, and toll-free telephone quit lines. Finally, you will learn the unique issues associated with smoking within the behavioral health population, including prioritizing quitting, barriers to smoking cessation, and interaction with medications.
