Justice-Involved Tobacco Cessation


The University of Colorado, Behavioral Health & Wellness Program (BWHP) is pleased to assist the Arizona Department of Health Services, Bureau of Tobacco and Chronic Disease (BTCD) to meet the tobacco cessation needs of Arizona’s tobacco users, with specific attention paid to priority populations. Individuals involved with Arizona’s criminal justice system will be a specific population of focus. BHWP will work with the state, counties, public service institutions, and other key stakeholders to articulate high-utility, realistic plans for meeting the demands of some of Arizona’s most at-risk tobacco users. These activities will be critical to creating a tobacco cessation continuity-of-care that is both scalable and sustainable across geographic and other state diversity. Activities include stakeholder forums, learning communities, and trainings, as well as providing direct technical assistance, consultation to BTCD. These efforts will assist in building a culture of learning and self-efficacy sustaining Arizona’s cessation programming.
