Resources for medical professionals

The current environment presents many challenges. Mayo Clinic's highest priority is patient and staff safety. We are taking every precaution to manage patient safety to the highest standard through universal masking, enhanced safety protocols, robust screening and COVID-19 testing strategies. Mayo Clinic will continuously evaluate the circumstances at each of our sites and follow federal and state mandates.

All programs are physician supervised so that treatment of nicotine dependence is coordinated with treatment of other medical problems, as needed. The six-month stop rate among outpatients who receive a tobacco treatment specialist consult at the Nicotine Dependence Center is over 25 percent versus less than 5 percent for people who attempt to quit without any treatment for tobacco dependence.
