About This Course

Tobacco-related health disparities in Philadelphia is a health justice issue linked to poverty, systemic discrimination, industry targeting, and social stigma directed toward residents with behavioral health disorders. This training reviews data from surveys conducted in residential drug and alcohol treatment programs to identify the perspectives of providers and individuals receiving care in behavioral health services, and to advance a shared vision for a realistic, data-driven strategy to effectively address the issue.

Philadelphia has one of the highest rates of smoking among American cities and is the poorest big city in America. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health reports that the greatest concentration of tobacco use, and the related health consequences are found among one in four residents living in poverty, many of whom receive behavioral health services.

The overall goals of this presentation are to identify how elevated life stressors of living in poverty, combined with racism, homophobia, and stigma directed toward people with mental and substance use disorders contribute to tobacco-related health disparities, and to describe a data-driven advocacy strategy and community resources to address the issue.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Develop an understanding of how racism, poverty, homophobia, stigma, and other forms of discrimination contribute to tobacco-related health disparities.
  2. Define the origin of prevailing social norms in the treatment and recovery culture that serve to sustain a high rate of tobacco use and the related illness, disability, and premature death.
  3. Review survey results that assessed Philadelphia’s efforts to integrate tobacco interventions in residential drug and alcohol treatment programs.
  4. Describe an advocacy strategy to mobilize our community to reduce tobacco-related health disparities.

 

Intended Audience: 

The target audience includes the CBH provider network, all DBHIDS and CBH employees, recovery peer specialists, advocates, and community allies.
