Fairbanks Nicotine Dependence Program

The nicotine dependence program at Fairbanks was developed by Indiana University to assist people who want to stop smoking and who want to maintain a tobacco-free lifestyle. The outpatient program offers a step-by-step plan that is tailored to each person’s individual needs. The program is open to both those who enroll on their own and those who are referred by their health care providers.

Fairbanks offers support for all levels of tobacco users— whether you smoke or dip heavily, or have a lesser degree of use—this program will work for you.

Multi component treatment options may include:

  • An individual assessment and step-by-plan
  • Medication
  • Coping skills development
  • Behavior modification
  • Relapse prevention
  • Use of a carbon monoxide (co) breath analyzer

We will work with you to determine the number of counseling sessions needed to support your success through the program. Additional sessions are available for follow-up care.
