Tobacco Awareness Program (TAP)

Based on the stages of change, Tobacco Awareness Program (TAP) is designed to move teenage tobacco users toward wanting to quit using cigarettes or spit tobacco.  TAP provides tobacco-using teens with the information, motivation, and action steps to move toward a healthier, tobacco-free lifestyle.  Participants are encouraged to reduce their tobacco use, quit on their own, or join a voluntary tobacco cessation program.

Goals of TAP include: 
  1. To move participants through the stages of change from precontemplation to preparation
  2. To provide information on the effects of tobacco use
  3. To provide a positive alternative to suspension for schools and a diversion program for juvenile courts
  4. To motivate participants to adopt a healthier lifestyle
Target Population: Middle School and High School-Aged Youth
Program Length: 8 hrs. of Participant Instruction
