About the Event

Addiction to tobacco cigarettes is one of the most serious forms of maladaptive behavior. Five million cigarette smokers annually smoke themselves to death.  Every puff on a cigarette destroys healthy tissue while introducing up to 81 cancer causing chemicals.

Join us for an important presentation by Professor Carlo C. DiClemente, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

Professor DiClemente is the author of the "Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change" (better known as the "Stages of Change"), the longtime renown director of the MDQUIT Tobacco Resource Center at UMBC, and an internationally known expert on the process of smoking initiation and cessation.

His presentation will include PowerPoint - and an opportunity for open discussion and questions and answers. 

The event is open to members of the public, SMART Recovery facilitators and volunteers, graduate students and all mental health and addiction treatment professionals

Two Level 2 / Level B CEU's will be awarded to professionals who register and attend.  Please register early as space is limited!

A nominal registration fee of $10 will be charged.
