The Nicotine Dependence Service (NDS) at CAMH is excited to share our Vaping Cessation Guideline Resource! This resource was developed in response to the growing prevalence of e-cigarette use, in collaboration with a group of international experts and people with lived experience of e-cigarette use, with the goal of providing evidence-based guidance for healthcare providers to support adults and youth (ages 15-24) who want to quit vaping.
The recommendations listed in this resource aim to provide general guidance on the following topics for adults, youth, people who are pregnant, breastfeeding and/or chestfeeding and people with mental illness and/or substance use issues:
- Severity and dependence
- General approaches to creating a treatment plan
- Treatment approaches
- Dual use treatment strategies (people who use both tobacco and e-cigarettes)
- Pharmacotherapy and behavioural therapy strategies; and
- Approaches to harm reduction and relapse prevention.

The resource can be accessed through the ‘E-Cigarette & Vaping” section on the homepage, and is available in both French and English.
