Structuring a clinic to provide patients with an effective and comprehensive smoking cessation program may not always be possible. However, we contend that it is always possible to provide a referral to such services when smokers have been identified and the risks of continuing to smoke have been discussed with them. Smoking cessation programs are available throughout the United States from the American Lung Association, the American Cancer Society, and the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The American Heart Association also offers a self-help program. Many national and local commercial programs are also available. Developing a comfortable referral relationship with programs in your area can improve the care you provide for your smoking patients.
