The MaineHealth Center for Tobacco Independence (CTI) works across the state of Maine to address tobacco use and exposure through education, prevention, policy, treatment and training initiatives.
Center for Tobacco Independence Mission:
Making Our Communities the Healthiest in America through reduction of tobacco use through the provision of evidence based treatment, education, policy development and research.
CTI is housed within MaineHealth, the largest nonprofit integrated healthcare system in northern New England, providing services to 11 out of 16 Maine counties containing over three-fourths of the Maine population (as well as to one NH county). MaineHealth provides a continuum of care from prevention and health maintenance through tertiary services, rehabilitation, chronic care and long-term care.
Center for Tobacco Independence Funding:
The MaineHealth Center for Tobacco Independence administers statewide tobacco treatment and prevention contracts on behalf of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Maine CDC), Maine Department of Health and Human Services. These Maine CDC contracts support the Maine QuitLink, Tobacco Treatment Training Initiative and Tobacco Prevention Services – the latter of which is part of the broader Maine Prevention Services.
