Text Support Helps Teens Quit Vaping

December 19th, 2019

Teens who want to quit vaping may not feel comfortable telling an adult about their addiction. Many feel that schools don’t have adequate resources to help them.

Traditional funding sources for antismoking and cessation resources have declined as vaping rates among youth have skyrocketed, and there are few evidence-based treatment options for young people. 

However, there are options. Many teens are turning to digital, app or text-based resources that are being developed to meet their needs.
