Get Help to Stop Smoking

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and disease in the world today. The Center for Tobacco Control (CTC) specializes in the compassionate care of individuals who use tobacco products. The CTC provides state-of-the-art tobacco prevention education, cessation services and clinical research in the area of nicotine dependence. The center was created by North Shore University Hospital staff, who are committed to reducing tobacco usage in the community. The CTC has helped thousands of Long Islanders quit smoking and have one of the highest success rates in the United States.

In 2004, the CTC received a grant from the New York State Department of Health's Tobacco Control Program. The CTC is the designated Tobacco Cessation Center for Nassau and Suffolk Counties. This grant funding was renewed in 2009 through 2014.

The CTC activities include educating healthcare providers about evidence-based treatment of tobacco dependence. The CTC works collaboratively with all hospitals, clinics and physicians to ensure that patients are screened for tobacco use and provided assistance with quitting. Through this grant, the CTC strives to be a leader in tobacco-dependence treatment.
