Tobacco Treatment for Employable Californians, Total IMPACT Study

Previous findings indicate elevated risk for tobacco use among adults in California who are unemployed and seeking work. In a pilot study, tobacco use was associated with a longer duration of time out of work. This community-based participatory research study aims to deliver and evaluate the impact of a web-based job seeker tailored tobacco cessation intervention vs. a control group in the San Francisco Bay Area. This research investigates whether an employment-centered tobacco treatment intervention is efficacious in supporting abstinence and also associated with more timely engagement of employment.
