The Smoking Cessation Trust was established to help fund cessation services for all Louisiana residents who smoked a cigarette prior to September 1, 1988. It was the result of a 14-year-long class action lawsuit Scott v. American Tobacco Co.

If approved for inclusion in the Trust program, you will be eligible to receive completely free services that include: cessation medications, nicotine replacement therapy (gum, patch, lozenge, nasal spray), individual/group cessation counseling, telephone quit-line support, and/or intensive cessation support services.
By using these services, evidence suggests that participants will increase the success rate of attempts to stop smoking cigarettes (on average, it takes 8-11 quit attempts), and may help a committed quitter to successfully quit—for good.
To date, more than 30 percent of Trust Members report they have quit smoking cigarettes.
