QuitlineNC Adds New Protocol for NC Residents with Behavioral Health Conditions

Starting June 26, 2019 QuitlineNC offers more services to North Carolina residents with behavioral health conditions. QuitlineNC will provide seven specialized tobacco treatment calls with quit coaches uniquely trained to work with those with behavioral health disorders, as well as 12 weeks of combination nicotine replacement therapy (patches plus gum or

lozenges). Participants can also use TTS Listserv – March ’17, July ’17 , May ’18, August ’18, October ’18, March ’19, June ’19 web coaching and texting to support their quit efforts. (See the attached Summary of Services for up-to-date information on all of the services provided by the QuitlineNC) Anyone enrolled in the behavioral health protocol can have a letter sent to their healthcare provider advising them that this person is working to become tobacco free. This protocol nearly doubles the likelihood that a participant with a behavioral health condition will become tobacco free, compared to in the standard set of services.

To access this tailored service, callers need to let the Quit Coach know about their behavioral health disorder and that their disorder will affect their ability to quit tobacco. To refer clients, send a fax referral form to QuitlineNC and remind them to say yes when their Quit Coach asks if their behavioral health condition will affect their ability to quit.

Facing Addiction with NCADD
 

Rhonda,

Over 500,000 lives have been lost from prescription opioids since 2000. One of the primary reasons is the lie perpetrated on all of us by opioid manufacturers and distributors.

Facing Addiction with NCADD has had enough – it’s time to stand up and shine light on the #OpioidLie. Will you join us in this fight? Click here if, like us, you’re ready to expose the #OpioidLie.

The lies of this industry are well documented. They’ve been covered by outlets from NPRBloombergUSA Today, and countless others. These stories lay out the simple facts:

  • There are 91 daily opioid overdose deaths in the United States
  • At least 2 million Americans are suffering from opioid use disorders
  • The total “economic burden” of prescription opioid misuse is $78.5 billion a year

We can’t go on this way – and we don’t have to. It’s going to take thousands of individuals across the country. Please stand with us today so that all of our friends, families, and neighbors can be informed on the #OpioidLie.

Regards,

Michael King

Director of Outreach & Engagement
