Background and purpose

In order to gain a better picture of the amount and reach of tobacco cessation programs in the state of Ohio, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), in conjunction with Strategic Research Group (SRG), conducted a survey of agencies offering tobacco cessation services. This survey was conducted over the spring and summer of 2015 and the resulting data was used to develop a searchable database of tobacco cessation services, which is outlined below:

The database is searchable by the following variables:

  • County or counties served
  • Service(s) offered: Individual, group, or telephonic counseling; classes and workshops.
  • Funding source(s): Insurance reimbursement, Medicaid, individual pay, sliding fee based on income, and/or grant.
  • Population(s) served: All, uninsured, low income, WIC, pregnant women/families, youth, insured individuals, patients at a medical facility, health plan members, businesses, schools, veterans, and/or nonprofit agencies.

In addition to the items listed above, search results will include the following information:

  • Program elements: Treatment plan, healthy lifestyle component, medical component, education component, and/or incentive.
  • Is at least one counselor/instructor a certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist? Y/N
  • Agency Contact Information (if provided): Name, address, contact person name, contact person email, contact person phone number.

Notes and considerations:

  • Some information may be missing because it wasn’t collected or the respondent opted not to provide it
  • Only those who gave explicit permission for their agency and service information to be shared on the ODH website and/or with the Ohio Quit Line are included in the database.
