Ready to Quit?
The MHealthy Tobacco Consultation Service (TCS) offers a program to help those who want to quit tobacco. These services are delivered in a non-judgmental, supportive environment. Treatment is available to U-M faculty and staff, their spouses or other qualified adults, Michigan Medicine patients, and the community.
U-M students can access nicotine cessation coaching for vaping, smoking, or using smokeless tobacco products at Wolverine Wellness. Click here to learn more and make an appointment with a coach who specializes in nicotine cessation. Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is available at no cost for students who participate in coaching.
Both programs are free of charge. Benefits-enrolled employees and their spouses or other qualified adults can obtain a monthly supply for up to six months of nicotine replacement therapy at an approved Michigan Medicine pharmacy for $0 co-pay.

Main Campus Policy
Tobacco is prohibited in all university buildings, facilities, grounds and university-owned vehicles. See Standard Practice Guide 601.04 for specifics.
The success of this policy depends upon the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of both tobacco-users and non-tobacco users. All faculty, staff, students and visitors share the responsibility for adhering to and enforcing the policy.
Concerns should be brought to the attention of the individuals responsible for the operation of the university facility in question and/or the supervisor responsible for the work area.
Repeat offenders will be subject to the same non-compliance process as for violating any policy within the Standard Practice Guide.
U-M Health Policy
U-M Health revised its Tobacco-Free Environment Policy in 2016 to prohibit ENDS and smokeless tobacco products. This policy bans the use of tobacco products in its buildings, grounds, parking lots and ramps, and will remain unchanged.
Visitors to campus are asked to follow the tobacco-free policy while attending events and conducting business.
Those who wish to quit tobacco may benefit from the university’s number of cessation services.
Upon request, a Tobacco Treatment Specialist (TTS) will provide a brief treatment intervention for hospitalized patients who choose to discuss their tobacco use. The patient’s tobacco use will be assessed and nicotine replacement therapy offered to help manage withdrawal symptoms while the patient is hospitalized.
Quit Tobacco Programs
Adults can receive treatment services to assist them in quitting tobacco use. A six-session program covers preparing to quit, how quitting affects the body, tobacco treatment medications, setting a quit date, how to live free of tobacco, and relapse prevention.
TCS provides support for adults who have completed a quit tobacco program. Follow-up phone support is offered for six months following completion of a U-M program.
To learn more, call (734) 998-6222 or email email@example.com.
