Individuals and Organizations

The Quit with Nancy™ Tobacco Cessation Program consistently has quit rates over 50%!

AND our corporate programs achieve quit rates of 65-75%!

One year quit and reduction rate combined are over 90%!

These quit rates meet and even exceed the top tobacco treatment clinics in the country. No other program has such consistent, high rates of success. Our participants rate this program as excellent!

Interested participants may be engaged from the general community, hospitals, clinics, addiction centers, organizations, military, agencies, schools, youth centers, churches, etc. They also may be people who live in institutions such as group homes, juvenile detention centers, prisons, nursing homes, group homes, shelters, military and the like.

Reaching out to the Medicaid, Mental Health, Drug, and Alcohol Dependency Populations

  • 32.6% of Medicaid recipients in the US smoke vs. 19.8% in the overall adult population.
  • 10 to 20% of all state Medicaid program costs, totaling more than 30 billion a year, are spent on smoking-related illnesses and diseases.
  • 42% of all cigarettes smoked in the US are consumed by individuals with a current mental illness.
  • Among those who seek treatment for drug and alcohol problems, 80% smoke.

Reaching out to the Dept of Corrections, Drug Courts, and Juvenile Detention Centers

  • Tobacco is integrally bound up in the prison culture. Although tobacco is banned at many correctional facilities, prisoners report that tobacco serves as currency in exchange for goods, paying debts and gambling.
  • From our experience teaching tobacco education in juvenile detention centers, most teens report a daily use of tobacco products outside of incarceration.

Reaching out to Youth

  • Teens who smoke are more likely to try much stronger drugs, including marijuana, cocaine and heavy alcohol drinking.
  • 95% of high school seniors who smoke have tried illicit drugs-only 27% of non-smokers tried illicit drugs.
  • Children of smokers are more likely to have behavior problems such as conduct disorder, attention deficit disorder and oppositional defiant order.

Reaching out to the American Indian/Alaskan Natives

  • American Indian/Alaskan Native adults have the highest tobacco use rates of all major racial/ethnic groups in America.
  • In 2007, smoking among American Indian/Alaskan Natives was 36.4 percent compared to 19.8% in the overall adult population.

Reaching out to the populations experiencing tobacco-related disparities (CDC)

Some of the factors that contribute to higher smoking rates in certain populations are educational level, ethnicity, income, lifestyle and lack of access to services.

  • Native Americans
  • Medicaid recipients
  • Low socioeconomic status
  • 18-24-year-olds
  • Industry and labor workers
  • LBGT (Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay, Transgender)
  • Racial and Ethnic groups
  • Fewer years of education

Reaching out to the Rural Communities

  • The tobacco industry targets rural populations through advertisement and sponsorship of rural events such as rodeos and sports activities.
  • Combined with lower access to disease prevention services and health care, this makes rural populations extremely vulnerable to tobacco related diseases.

Reaching out to the Military Community

  • About 50% of soldiers deployed to Iraq return addicted to tobacco.
  • On average, the use of tobacco will deprive those soldiers of 10 to 14 years of life and for many; poor health will compromise the quality of those years.

Reaching out to the LBGT (Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Gay, Transgender) Community

  • The LGBT estimated rate of smoking is twice that of heterosexuals in similar geographic and socioeconomic circumstances.
  • Smoking rates among LGBT youth are estimated to be considerably higher (38% to 59%) than rates among heterosexual youth (28% to 35%).

Reaching out to the Elderly

  • All the major causes of death in the elderly are associated with smoking or secondhand smoke—cancer, heart disease and stroke. These diseases usually cause months and years of suffering.
  • Research shows that smoking is related to health problems generally associated with aging, such as vision and hearing loss, oral health problems, impotence, wrinkles, dementia and Alzheimer’s.
  • Stopping smoking results in improvement in health status at any age including the elderly.
