Intervention for Nicotine Dependence: Education, Prevention, Tobacco and Health (INDEPTH)
Developed by the American Lung Association, INDEPTH™ is a free education program available for any school or community to establish to help teens make healthier choices. The program is a convenient alternative to suspension or citation that helps schools and communities address the teen vaping problem in a more supportive way. Instead of solely focusing on punitive measures, INDEPTH™ teaches students about nicotine dependence, establishing healthy alternatives and how to kick the unhealthy addiction that got them in trouble in the first place.
INDEPTH™ was piloted at 11 schools across the U.S. with 60% of student participants reporting that they were willing to quit using tobacco products after completing the program.
Not On Tobacco Teen Smoking and Vaping Cessation Program
The American Lung Association offers a natural complement to INDEPTH. Not On Tobacco® (N-O-T) is a voluntary teen-centered cessation program inclusive in addressing all tobacco product use, including e-cigarettes. Unlike other cessation programs which simply modify adult curriculum, N-O-T was designed with teenagers in mind and addresses issues that are specifically important to them.
This is Quitting Cessation Program
