Maine Case Study
Comprehensive Treatment of Tobacco Dependence in Maine
Was a needs assessment completed?
CTI conducted an informal inventory of tobacco treatment services, including all health systems and community programs that were delivering tobacco use treatment throughout the state. In this process, they reviewed data and information available from state advisory boards to identify services available and benefit coverage for tobacco treatment through public and private employers. All information is maintained in an inventory database. CTI also visited and interviewed several organizations that were providing statewide telephonic quit lines.
Planning Models Used
None of the formal planning models identified were used in program development. Program developers used evidence-based information gathered from the experience of other states and entities to identify factors that increase tobacco quit rates such as the frequency of service, the format for delivery and the accessibility to services.
