This tool provides examples and clear steps on how to create tobacco-free facilities and services in substance abuse and mental health treatment settings. Since people seeking treatment for substance abuse or mental illness disproportionately smoke at higher rates compared to the general public, this tool emphasizes the importance of a tobacco-free treatment setting; provisions of evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment; and the necessity of helping staff who use tobacco to quit.
