About the

The Nicotine Dependence Clinic offers a variety of tobacco cessation treatment services delivered by team of medical, nursing, pharmacy, social work and addiction therapy professionals. Our services include individual assessment, group counseling, and consultation on nicotine replacement therapy and cessation medication such as Zyban (bupropion) and Champix (varenicline).

STOP has set up a comprehensive program of distributing free NRT products to smokers across Ontario who are interested in making a quit attempt. The purpose of the STOP Study in its various phases is to systematically evaluate different methods of distributing NRT to smokers across Ontario. ​
The TEACH Project is geared toward training health care professionals in the public, private and non-profit sectors who provide counselling services to people who use tobacco. The program is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills in the delivery of intensive tobacco cessation interventions. Our General Brochure provides an overview of the TEACH project.​
CAN-ADAPTT is a national guideline development, dissemination and exchange project. An online network and coordinated engagement activities across Canada allow members to provide ongoing input into CAN-ADAPTT’s guideline; discuss best practices, identify research gaps and share resources. This Practice-Informed approach ensures the needs and experiences of the target end users are reflected in the CAN-ADAPTT guideline.
The overall objective of the PREGNETS program is to decrease the negative consequences of smoking and environmental tobacco smoke on the woman, fetus, and child by encouraging healthcare providers to include minimal contact interventions into routine assessments and healthcare.
