Find Help for Your Addiction to Tobacco and Nicotine

At Jacksonville Women’s Rehab, we understand how hard it can be to break an addiction to tobacco and nicotine, and we want to help! Please take a moment to look over this article, and contact us for more information about our program.

Tobacco is one of the most widely abused substances in the world. It is highly addictive. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that tobacco causes 6 million deaths per year. This makes tobacco the leading cause of preventable death.

Nicotine is the main addictive chemical in tobacco. It causes a rush of adrenaline when absorbed in the bloodstream or inhaled via cigarette smoke or vaping. Nicotine also triggers an increase in dopamine, sometimes referred to as the brain’s “happy” chemical.

Dopamine stimulates the area of the brain associated with pleasure and reward. Like any other drug, use of tobacco over time can cause a physical and psychological addiction. This is also true for smokeless forms of tobacco, such as snuff and chewing tobacco.

Common Treatments Available

There are several different treatment options for those battling a tobacco addiction:

Nicotine Replacement Therapies: Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) poses the lowest risk to health among all nicotine-containing products, and thus falls on the opposite end of the nicotine-delivery risk spectrum, whereas cigarettes are the most harmful. FDA-approved NRTs are designed to reduce symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and help adults quit smoking by delivering small amounts of nicotine to the brain without the toxic chemicals present in cigarette smoke. If used properly, NRTs are safe and effective cessation methods and can double an addicted smoker’s chances of successfully quitting cigarettes.11 NRTs are available both by prescription in the form of oral inhaler and nasal spray, and over-the-counter for adults age 18 and over as skin patches, lozenges, and gum.

NRT patch: The patch is known as a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). It’s a small, bandage-like sticker that you apply to your arm or back. The patch delivers low levels of nicotine to the body. This helps gradually wean the body off it.

Nicotine gum: Another form of NRT, nicotine gum can help people who need the oral fixation of smoking or chewing. This is common, as people who are quitting smoking may have the urge to put something into their mouths. The gum also delivers small doses of nicotine to help the you manage cravings.

Spray or inhaler: Nicotine sprays and inhalers can help by giving low doses of nicotine without tobacco use. These are sold over the counter and are widely available. The spray is inhaled, sending nicotine into the lungs.

Medications: Some doctors recommend the use of medication to help with tobacco addictions. Certain antidepressants or high blood pressure drugs might be able to help manage cravings. One medication that’s commonly used is varenicline (Chantix). But it is up to your doctor to decide which medications should be prescribed to help you with your tobacco addiction.

Psychological and behavioral treatments: Some people who use tobacco have success with methods such as: hypnotherapy; cognitive-behavioral therapy; neuro-linguistic programming. These methods help the user change their thoughts about addiction. They work to alter feelings or behaviors that your brain associates with tobacco use.

"NO WARRANTY" LEGAL NOTICE: While independent outcomes studies have shown very high recovery rates for indiviuals in our programs, we cannot guarantee recovery for any particular individual. Recovery and future abstinence from addicting substances and the effects that such substances may have on the individual or their life, actions, or their future are entirely dependent on the individual and how well they apply the principles we have taught them. We are an educational institution, and how the individual in our program learns from what they are taught and modeled here, is totally up to them. Individuals who stay the full term (until graduation) have much better long-term recovery from addicitons than those who do not.

FLORIDA, TENNESSEE AND CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: Please note that Adult & Teen Challenge Centers in Florida are not-for-profit religious institutions, not licensed medical facilities, nor do they accept insurance. Rates are very low compared to for-profit rehabs. Outcomes are based on multiple outcomes studies over the past 50 years, including this study from the National Institutes on Drug Abuse.

UNLIKE A TYPICAL ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTER: For 60 years, we have successfully inspired individuals to break free of their addictions and life-controlling issues. Our low-cost program is not an addiction treatment center — it is a residential educational program designed to reverse the destruction that addictions reap on relationships, careers and futures. We set the former addict on a new course in life with all new motivations and renewed respect, peace and care for others. In a safe, encouraging, drug-free environment, our staff (who are mostly former addicts themselves) work with each individual daily, showing them the way toward a more fulfilling life based on God’s forgiveness, love and purpose. Our model has proven to be highly effective for all addictions, bringing about maturity, honesty, humility, care, and life change. Medical detox may be required before enrolling.

"NO WARRANTY" LEGAL NOTICE: While outcomes studies for Adult & Teen Challenge centers have historically shown high addiction and substance abuse recovery rates, they cannot guarantee addiction recovery for any particular individual. Recovery and future avoidance of addicting substances and whatever effects that such substance may have on the individual's life, their future, their career or their friends or relatives are entirely dependent on each individual and how they apply the principles they are taught in the program.
