Abstract

While the underutilization of psychosocial treatments for tobacco dependence may be problematic in general, it is especially problematic in smokers with schizophrenia who may need more assistance than those in the general population. Psychosocial approaches are important for motivating ambivalent smokers with schizophrenia to make a quit attempt (i.e., via motivational interviewing) and for providing the smoker with the tools necessary for a successful quit attempt. This paper discusses psychosocial treatment approaches available to the general population, those used in published clinical trials of tobacco dependence for smokers with schizophrenia, and an ongoing clinical trial comparing a high vs. moderately intensive psychosocial treatment for tobacco dependence in smokers with schizophrenia. We also discuss a new consumer advocacy program for smokers with schizophrenia and make recommendations for using psychosocial approaches to treat tobacco dependence in smokers with schizophrenia.
