Michigan Tobacco Quitline services are provided by National Jewish Health® and administered by the Michigan Department of Community Health. Research shows that smokers who use Quitline services are more likely to successfully quit than smokers who try to quit on their own. Since 2002, this telephone-based cessation program has been offering services tailored to individual smoker’s needs. Trained coaches work closely with individuals to develop coping skills to quit tobacco use and remain tobacco-free. The program consists of a bilingual Quitline Call Center; proactive, positive coaching sessions; the web-based Michigan.Quitlogix.org for 24/7 support; provision of nicotine replacement therapy products to eligible participants; printed materials; and a comprehensive quality assurance program.
