Integrating smoking cessation into alcohol and other drugs treatment

On-demand recorded 17 Mar 2020

Smokers who use alcohol and other drugs are motivated to quit although there appears to be a wide variation in readiness to seek help to quit. in this webinar we discuss common misconceptions and attitudes that prevent patients who use alcohol and other drugs from quitting smoking. We also assist you in recognising health-related risks associated with smoking and the benefits of quitting with tobacco treatment options for this group of patients, and share pathways for patients to access smoking cessation support.
