About the Tobacco Treatment Center
Whether you smoke, chew or dip, the Tobacco Treatment Center offers the one-on-one support and resources that you need to quit.
Using tobacco is both an addiction and a habit. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance that occurs naturally in tobacco. In addition, tobacco use becomes a habit – you associate it with situations, people, places or feelings.
Most of us know that tobacco use is bad for our health, but quitting can be a challenge. After all, it’s a permanent lifestyle change. The Tobacco Treatment Center offers a combination of behavioral therapy and medication. This approach has been proven to dramatically increase the chance of successfully quitting.
Cleveland Clinic's Tobacco Treatment Center is based on the latest scientific knowledge. We help you understand the treatment options available and create a personalized plan to help you quit.

How Does It Work?
You’ll start by meeting with a tobacco cessation specialist. She will review your medical history, current medications, tobacco use history and any previous quit attempts.
Your specialist will develop a personalized treatment plan for you. This may include tobacco treatment medication such as Chantix, Zyban or Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) and behavioral therapy, such as reading material, web-based programs and individual or group counseling, or non-traditional approaches such as acupuncture or hypnosis.
The specialist will schedule follow up sessions with you to check on your progress, find out how treatment is working for you - and celebrate your successes.
What Is the Cost of the Treatment Plan?
The Tobacco Treatment Center is covered by many insurance plans. A financial counselor will work with you to verify your benefits.
