NAATP Supports CDC Tips Campaign

Share this on:

The National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) is pleased to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) 2022 Tips From Former Smokers ® (Tips®) campaign. CDC estimates that 16.4 million people who smoke have attempted to quit and one million people have successfully quit because of the Tips campaign.

The campaign shares stories of real people living with serious long-term health effects from smoking and secondhand smoke exposure.

Starting February 28, Tips campaign ads will be placed on broadcast and cable TV, streaming audio, and digital and social media channels including CDC Tobacco Free on Facebook and Twitter. Throughout this year, NAATP will be sharing Tips campaign information, materials, and smoking cessation resources with our members.

Many patients will already be seeing Tips ads in their day to day lives. NAATP members can leverage these ads by using CDC’s campaign tools, materials and resources in your patient interactions and, in doing so, providing motivation to quit.

Smoking doesn’t just kill; it can disable, disfigure and rob people who smoke of their independence. By providing information, resources, and motivation, the Tips® campaign has proven to be highly effective in helping people across the country quit smoking.

-Deirdre Lawrence Kittner, PhD, MPH, Director of CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health

Why is our support so critical in this effort? Smoking still causes more than 480,000 deaths every year in the U.S.  And for every person who dies because of smoking, at least 30 people live with a serious smoking-related illness. We ask our members to help spread the word about this campaign and the health effects of smoking. 

NAATP is committed to supporting smoking cessation. For more information about the Tips campaign please visit: CDC.gov/Tips.
