Tobacco Treatment

The goal of the ACT Center Tobacco Treatment Program is to help people quit using tobacco and stay quit using a proven, evidence-based approach.

The ACT Center endorses influential documents guiding tobacco cessation policy and practices, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs, and the Public Health Service (PHS) Guideline, Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence.

Treatment involves:

  • 1 Initial Session, to gather key information about you, determine if this is the best program for you, and give you the opportunity to ask questions;

  • 6 Treatment Sessions, to get you the help you need, including developing skills and possibly receiving medication to quit and stay quit; and

  • Follow-up Sessions, to increase your chances of staying quit permanently.

The ACT Center's main site is at the Jackson Medical Mall Thad Cochran Center. This clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Evening clinic hours are available as well. Find the location.
