Intervention for Nicotine Dependence: Education, Prevention, Tobacco and Health

The American Lung Association’s INDEPTH® (Intervention for Nicotine Dependence: Education, Prevention, Tobacco and Health) program is an alternative to suspension or citation program that is offered as an option to students who face suspension for violation of school tobacco or e-cigarette use policies.

This program is administered by a trained adult facilitator in either a one-on-one or group format and can be offered in a school or community-based setting. The program consists of four sessions of approximately 50 minutes geared toward youth and focused on tobacco use, including e-cigarettes, nicotine dependence, establishing healthy alternatives and making the change to be free of all tobacco products.

Because the program is offered as an alternative to suspension or citation, attendance is mandatory in order to fulfill the obligation for the infraction. INDEPTH is not intended to be used as a prevention program (i.e., for students who are not current tobacco users).
