IMPLEMENTING TOBACCO CESSATION TREATMENT FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS (1 CEs)

2. Attendees will identify 3 benefits of tobacco cessation interventions.
3. Attendees will describe 5 key steps in tobacco cessations treatment approaches.
4. Attendees will list 3 smoking cessation medications.

Research shows that individuals with SMI who smoke are as interested in quitting as those without SMI and can do so without jeopardizing their mental health recovery.

Furthermore, quitting smoking can have a broader positive influence on individuals with SMI; as they learn effective skills and techniques for smoking cessation, their sense of mastery and self-efficacy to make other healthy lifestyle changes can increase as well.

Tobacco cessation treatment should be an integral part of treating individuals with SMI. There is a critical need to engage mental health program directors and clinicians in efforts to increase access to evidence-based tobacco treatment for these individuals. For ... Read More

Motivation for change is a key component in addressing substance misuse. This Home Study Course reflects a fundamental rethinking of the concept of motivation as a dynamic process, not a static client trait. Motivation relates to the probability that a person will enter into, continue, and adhere to a specific change strategy.
Although much progress has been made in identifying people who misuse substances and who have substance use disorders (SUDs) as well as in using science-informed interventions such as motivational counseling approaches to treat them, the United States still faces many SUD challenges.

Millions of people in the United States with SUDs are not receiving treatment. Many are not seeking treatment because their motivation to change their substance use behaviors is low.
