Research Studies: Tobacco Use
Despite evidence supporting the effectiveness of smoking cessation telephone helplines, these programs generally reach less than 5% of smokers.
Helping young adults to quit smoking is a national health priority. However, there have been few evidence-based treatments designed to motivate smoking cessation among this young adult population.
The goal of this research study is to enhance smoking cessation rates for homeless smokers by testing effects of 1) an Intensive Smoking Intervention, and 2) integrating alcohol abuse treatment with smoking cessation.
The objective of Project STARS is to investigate the use of objective laboratory results documenting child exposure to second hand smoke (biomarker feedback) on parental adoption of home smoking restrictions.
Smoking prevalence in homeless populations is strikingly high, 70% or greater, however, little is known about effective smoking cessation interventions for this population.
