Outcomes for Breathe Easy NC
The last 5 years of data have shown an increase in tobacco use treatment and smoke-free policies in behavioral health settings, as well as a decrease in tobacco use in NC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data. More people with behavioral health conditions in North Carolina will live longer, happier lives as a result.
Facilities data for 2016-20 comes from the National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services & the National Mental Health Services Survey.
2021 facilities data is from the National Survey of Substance Use & Mental Health Services Survey.
Smoke-free policy data was not available for mental health facilities beyond 2016. In 2016, 51.5% of NC mental health facilities reported having a smoke-free campus.
