Veteran Commercial Tobacco Cessation Program  

WDVA Now Offers No-Cost Assessment & Tobacco Cessation Treatment Planning for All WA State Veterans

Veterans are known to have high tobacco-use rates and more than a third of all active-duty smokers in the military start smoking after they enlist.

Your Washington Department of Veterans Affairs Veteran Commercial Tobacco Cessation Program exists to connect Washington’s veterans and military families to resources that help decrease tobacco dependence, increase cessation efforts, and provide support for staying stopped.

The program is funded by a grant from the CDC, and in partnership with Washington State Department of Health.

Veterans and military families have unique challenges and barriers to successfully quit tobacco-use, such as frequent moves, deployment, and behavioral health issues linked to active military duty.  These challenges and barriers often remain for individuals long after their transition from the military to civilian life.
