Utah Tobacco Resource Directory- For Teens

Introduction

Over the past several years it has become apparent that Utah's youth need specially designed services to help them quit using tobacco. Prior to this time only adult-based programs existed. While these programs were adequate for adults, they were lacking important components for youth. In addition, youth were resistant to attend classes or other programs that were predominantly made up of adult participants. 

The following information relates to youth-specific programs that are available. They can play a vital role in helping youth quit and stay quit. 

Ending Nicotine Dependence (END)

END is a tobacco cessation program designed especially for teens. The program builds skills and knowledge concerning tobacco use as well as focuses on developing a wide variety of social skills, including: communication, stress management, decision making, goal setting, nutrition and physical activity. The modules consist of techniques to influence teen tobacco users? knowledge, attitudes, intentions, beliefs, self-awareness, and self-efficacy. END is appropriate for implementation in schools, community agencies, and juvenile court districts and is designed for use with junior and senior high school smokers and smokeless tobacco users.

How to become an END facilitator: END facilitator trainings are held quarterly at the Utah Department of Health. Please contact Camille Cook at (801) 538-6883 or (877) 220-3466 (toll-free, in-state) or camillecook@utah.gov to register for a free END facilitator training.
