Area Medical Offices

Consult with your doctor or pediatrician. Many local practices have a CHT (community health team) program that can provide free services. Your doctor will be able to manage expectations around the medical perspectives of quitting. In the state of Vermont, youth ages 13 and over can seek mental health and substance use treatment on their own behalf without parental consent or direct notification. In most cases we recommend parent involvement for increased support in quitting.
