The health risks of smoking are serious, yet preventable.
Jefferson's program for Smoking Cessation, Counseling, and Therapy (SCCT) is an outpatient program offered by the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery in the Department of Surgery.
SCCT is directed by a team of certified registered nurse practitioners who are also certified tobacco treatment specialists. The SCCT Program provides evidence-based interventions for tobacco dependence to Jefferson patients.
Through motivational interviewing strategies, our providers offer:
- Treatment planning
- Pharmacotherapy (including nicotine replacement and cessation medications)
