Description

Ninety percent of people in methadone treatment programs smoke cigarettes. If they remain opiate free, smoking related disease is their most likely cause of death. Project QUIT provides state-of-the-art smoking cessation treatment (nicotine replacement vs. the medication Chantix) to this vulnerable population.
