Tobacco Treatment

The goal of the ACT Center Tobacco Treatment Program is to help people quit using tobacco and stay quit using a proven, evidence-based approach.

The ACT Center endorses influential documents guiding tobacco cessation policy and practices, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs and the Public Health Service (PHS) Guideline, Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence.

The demand for ACT Center clinical services has steadily increased since the Center opened in 1999. Our clinic population is diverse with respect to ethnic background, gender, age, and other factors.

Treatment involves:

  • 1 Intake Session, to determine if this is the best program for you, and give you the opportunity to ask questions;

  • 6 Treatment Sessions, to get you the help you need, including developing skills to quit and stay quit; and

  • Follow-up Sessions, to increase your chances of staying quit permanently.

ALL COUNSELING AND MEDICATIONS ARE OFFERED FREE OR AT LOW COST TO MISSISSIPPI RESIDENTS

The ACT Center's main site is at the Jackson Medical Mall Thad Cochran Center. This clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Evening clinic hours are available as well. Find the location.
