Tobacco use disorder: Ongoing care

Key points

  • Advise clients that tobacco use disorder is a chronic, relapsing condition and that single episodes of treatment rarely lead to permanent remission.
  • Conduct regular follow-up to assess the client's response to treatment, provide support and modify treatment if necessary.
  • Refer clients to relevant resources.
