Tobacco Prevention in Addison County

Smoke-free zone sign

We connect tobacco prevention and quit partners with schools and community organizations throughout the county. We are your local connection to the statewide 802Quits program and resources. We also address the impact of in-store tobacco advertising in our communities.

CounterBalance is a campaign directed towards the tobacco industry’s influence on youth and the damaging impact tobacco use has on community health.

Smoking rates in Vermont are declining, but they remain higher in some groups. Learn more about how we provide services and supports to those with the highest rates of smoking and tobacco use.

LOCAL SUCCESS STORIES

Working with the Vergennes Boys and Girls Club, we provided smoke-free zone signage, resources and educational programming about secondhand smoke to Champlain Orchards and Addison County Building Bright Futures.  Our office also provided smoke-free zone signs for Homeward Bound to show that their grounds are tobacco-free.
