TCS offers both inpatient and outpatient tobacco treatment services.
A Tobacco Treatment Specialist (TTS) will provide a brief tobacco treatment intervention for hospitalized patients. Patients can choose to discuss their tobacco use and options to quit using tobacco. Patient tobacco use will be assessed and nicotine replacement therapy offered to help manage tobacco withdrawal symptoms while the patient is hospitalized.
Quit Tobacco Programs: Adults can receive tobacco treatment services to assist them in quitting tobacco use prior to surgery, or anytime they are ready to quit. The six-week program covers preparing to quit, how quitting affects your body, tobacco treatment medications, setting a quit date, how to live free of tobacco and relapse prevention.
Post-Program Support: TCS provides support for adults who have completed a quit tobacco program. Follow-up phone support is offered for 6 months following completion of a TCS program. Support also is available in a group setting for adults who complete a TCS program.
Quit Tobacco Support Group: Adults over age 50 who have quit, or are thinking about quitting tobacco, can attend a quit tobacco support group. Groups meet twice a month at the Turner Senior Resource Center (TSRC), 2401 Plymouth Rd. Suite C, Ann Arbor, MI 48105.
