Vaping Information and Cessation Resources
Talk to a trusted adult about your concerns regarding your vaping use, and how to get help to stop. Your primary care provider is a good first step. Below are more resources for you to access epecially if you do not have insurance.
- Call 2-1-1, which is staffed by the Contra Costa Crisis Center and provides referrals to all health and social services. They are also cross-trained to refer to the California Smoker’s Helpline, that supports teens and adults with regard to cutting back and quitting tobacco use, including e-cigarettes / vape pens.
- Another local resource is the Behavioral Health Access Line, where people can access mental health and substance use services. This is most appropriate for other substances, such as alcohol, cannabis / marijuana, prescription drugs, etc.
- Lastly, Truth Campaign has expanded their quit smoking resources to include an e-cigarette quit program. Youth can access the new e-cigarette quit program by texting "DITCHJUUL" to 88709. Parents and other adults looking to help young people quit should text "QUIT" to (202) 899-7550.
