The STOP Program provides evidence-based treatment interventions including cost-free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) to Ontarians who smoke commercial cigarettes and/or use other tobacco/nicotine products (e.g., e-cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, water pipe, etc.). STOP operates within the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and is funded by the Government of Ontario.
STOP partners with organizations across Ontario to deliver tobacco/nicotine cessation treatment to patients at Family Health Teams (FHTs), Community Health Centres (CHCs), Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics (NPLCs), and Addictions and Mental Health Agencies (AMHAs), plus other sectors and organizations. Our overarching goal is to increase access to effective tobacco/nicotine cessation treatment and build practitioner capacity to provide this treatment. Participating organizations receive Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) at no cost for their patients, as well as ongoing, comprehensive training opportunities in tobacco/nicotine cessation counselling for practitioners as part of our STOP Community of Practice.
