People recovering from addiction are more likely to die from their tobacco dependence than they are from their drug of choice. Tobacco use makes ANY existing medical condition worse. That’s why Amethyst is not only a tobacco-free workplace; we also provide tobacco cessation as a part of our integrated treatment program.
Research shows that people who quit smoking while in treatment stay sober longer than those who do not. Abstinence from tobacco, just like abstinence from alcohol and other drugs, is not easy. Through Amethyst’s integrated treatment program, clients don’t have to go it alone. Amethyst provides intensive support to help women successfully quit.
