Tobacco use disorder: Treatment

Key points

  • Once a client screens positive for tobacco use, a time-limited and structured brief interview should follow.
  • All clients should receive information about their disorder, treatment options and where to find self-help material.
  • Treatment approaches to consider include psychotherapy, psychoeducation and pharmacotherapy.

Psychotherapy

  • Counselling delivered in various formats (e.g., self-help, individual, group, helpline, web-based) is effective in helping clients who want to stop smoking.
  • Minimal interventions of 1–3 minutes are effective and should be offered to every tobacco user. However, there is a strong dose–response relationship between session length and successful treatment, so intensive interventions should be used whenever possible.
  • Multiple counselling sessions increase the chances of prolonged abstinence; therefore, four or more counselling sessions should be offered.
  • Combining counselling and smoking cessation medication is more effective than either approach used alone; therefore both should be offered to clients who want to stop smoking.
  • Motivational interviewing should be used to support the client's willingness to engage in ongoing treatment.

Support and education

  • Clients should be counselled about the nature of addiction.
  • Addiction is a chronic, relapsing condition, and single episodes of treatment rarely lead to permanent remission.
  • Exploring with clients the factors leading to substance use is more effective than lecturing them.
  • Encourage smoke-free homes, which includes helping clients to develop the skills they need to modify their habits and minimize, avoid or counter tobacco-use triggers.

Pharmacotherapy

  • Pharmacotherapy doubles the chances of quitting per given quit attempt.
  • Pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation includes the patch, nicotine gum, inhaler, bupropion (Zyban) and varenicline (Champix).

Tobacco addiction is a physical mental state that occurs due to physical interaction with nicotine in tobacco.

Tobacco addiction manifests itself by an intense urge to force addicts to smoke.

Smoking behavior helps addicts feel refreshed and avoid unpleasant feelings because of lack of medicine.

Smoking behaviors continue even when the addict knows or even suffers from smoking.
