Smoking Cessation

Quitting Smoking is a Journey...

Local Smoking Cessation Programs


  • Tobacco Addiction Recovery Program (TARP)

    • TARP is run through the Capacity Building Team at the SJHH West 5th location. It is available to anyone with a mental health issue, and who also wants to quit or reduce their smoking.

    • Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is provided to participants for a full 26 weeks through the CAMH STOP Study. Participants are invited to join in 8 weeks of topics that will help them quit, including managing cravings, understanding addiction, goal setting and exercise and nutrition. After the 8 weeks are done, participants will come back every two weeks for a check in and to receive more NRT.
