Nicotine Cessation Program

Beating Nicotine Together

Simmons Cancer Center is partnering with parents and teens to help them understand the dangers of vaping and smoking. Learn more about nicotine addiction and how to talk to each other about quitting.

UT Southwestern Medical Center’s comprehensive nicotine cessation program is devoted to helping you or someone you care about quit smoking, vaping, or otherwise using any nicotine and tobacco products.

Our program includes:

  • Appointments with a physician who can prescribe medicines and monitor your progress
  • One-on-one sessions with certified tobacco treatment specialists
  • Group support
  • All visits currently offered by phone or video conference

We can help you stop any form of nicotine/tobacco use. To learn more about our program or to schedule your virtual care visit, call 833-722-6237 or email canceranswerline@utsouthwestern.edu.

Lung Cancer Screening

Because early detection is so important, UT Southwestern offers a low-dose CT lung cancer screening to look for early signs of changes that can be detected and treated in people who are at the highest risk for developing lung cancer. Learn more about our CT screening for lung cancer, find out whether you might be a good candidate for screening, or read our lung cancer guide (PDF).
