Mission Statement

The Center for Tobacco Cessation serves as the source of the best available science on tobacco cessation and works with national partners to expand the use of effective tobacco dependence treatments.

Goals & Objectives

In developing its program agenda, the CTC seeks opportunities to influence the adoption and implementation of the recommendations of Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence Clinical Practice Guideline and The Guide to Community Preventive Service: Tobacco Use Prevention and Control by the public health, clinical, and business sectors. This is accomplished by the following:

– Assembly of roundtable and work group meetings with leaders in the public health, clinical, and business sectors to identify successful approaches to developing effective tobacco dependence treatment programs.
– Translation and dissemination of action-oriented information about effective tobacco dependence treatment.
– Development of a policy coalition to advocate for adoption and implementation of effective tobacco dependence treatment in the public and private sectors .
