People with substance use disorders (SUD) have high rates of smoking. One study found that 56 percent reported cigarette use in the past month, compared to 18 percent of people without SUD. An older paper found an even higher rate—77 percent—among methadone patients. Researchers have found that vaping is more effective for smoking cessation than nicotine replacement therapy, so it’s imperative to help smokers in these populations switch to vaping—something USU is working on.
