Technology-Enhanced Quitline Services to Prevent Smoking Relapse

The purpose of this study was to test the efficacy of IVR technology for enhancing a widely used tobacco treatment service delivery model (Free & Clear’s Quit for Life(R) program) to prevent smoking relapse and achieve abstinence. The technology will enhance quitline services through (1) screening individuals during the post quit date period for increased risk of relapse and (2) providing evidence-based telephone counseling at the point of need tailored to the individual’s extant risk factors.
