How Program Works
In the American Indian Commercial Tobacco Program (AICTP), we understand the challenge you face in quitting commercial tobacco. We know the line between commercial and traditional tobacco has blurred. While many people are inspired to reclaim traditional tobacco use as sacred, it is hard quitting commercial tobacco. National Jewish Health, launched the AICTP as a specialized program in 2015. We have decades of experience operating quitlines and helping American Indians in the United States quit commercial tobacco. We have the right tools to help you quit commercial tobacco for good.
The AICTP is currently available in Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Wyoming.
