The Indiana Tobacco Quitline will help youth become tobacco-free for life.

The Indiana Tobacco Quitline now serves youth tobacco users. This new evidence-based phone counseling program is for teens, ages 13 to 17, who are ready to quit.

Indiana youth will receive a series of five proactive outbound calls from an experienced Youth Quit Coach trained in tobacco cessation counseling. These proactive calls provide personalized counseling utilizing cognitive-behavioral strategies and motivational support specifically tailored to youths.

The date and time of scheduled calls are planned and confirmed at each intervention to optimize success. Calls are made semi-weekly to weekly, and are scheduled around the youth’s quit date (0-3 days of their planned quit day) to provide support and to prevent relapse.

The program is designed to help teens stop using tobacco permanently. These participants will also receive age-appropriate educational materials and additional help via unlimited access to a toll-free support line that is available 24/7.
