Methadone-maintained smokers represent an important and large population of long- term, highly dependent smokers; this study aimed to find an effective medication-based quit smoking strategy for this population.
The goals of this project are to develop a partnership between two existing successful initiatives: the Million Hearts Initiative at the MedStar Health system in the metro Washington, DC area, and the BecomeAnEX.org suite of digital smoking cessation programs at the American Legacy Foundation. This project also aims to advance physician training across MedStar Health clinics in assessment, brief advice, and referral to evidence-based smoking cessation.
