Indiana is fighting a tobacco epidemic among those with mental health and substance abuse problems. Close to 70% of people with bipolar disorder smoke–and that is unacceptable.
It's time to change old attitudes and confront tobacco use in treatment and recovery programs. It is important for behavioral health providers and public health professionals to unite to help this unique population break their tobacco addiction.
