SCLC Justice-Involved Webinar Series

Through a partnership with the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC) at the University of California San Francisco, BHWP participated in a three-part webinar series going into depth about tobacco treatment within the justice-involved population. The goals of the SCLC Justice-Involved Webinar Series are to:

  • Explain collective knowledge of the topic of tobacco use disparities among the justice-involved.
  • Describe two promising and evidence-based practices to address tobacco use disorders (TUD) among individuals in the criminal justice system.
  • Identify two systemic barriers and challenges to integrating TUD treatment within the criminal justice system.
  • Discuss two recommendations to address TUD treatment integration within the criminal justice system, with a focus on steps to overcome systemic barriers, and implement policies, procedures, and best practices to improve access to TUD treatment.
