Study Summary

This trial will be conducted in 14 mental health clinics in Philadelphia. The clinics will be assigned at random to either the Addressing Tobacco Through Organizational Change model (ATTOC) or the Usual Care group. The investigators hypothesize that 1) at the end of the intervention and at a 3-month follow-up, rates of adherence to guidelines for treating TUD will be greater among clinic personnel that receive the ATTOC intervention vs. clinic personnel in usual care; 2) at the end of the intervention and at a 3-month follow-up, rates of client smoking cessation will be significantly greater in clinics that receive the ATTOC intervention than
