A representative sample of 406 U.S. Navy commands, including all medical treatment facilities, was surveyed in 1990 about their activities and programs to prevent the use of tobacco and promote smoking cessation during the preceding year.
The vast majority of Navy commands (86 percent) provided some type of tobacco cessation educational materials or programs.
However, the most common activities typically were rated as only « somewhat useful » in helping to curb tobacco use.
Almost one-half of all commands offered psychological or behavioral cessation programs.
Survey respondents estimated that approximately one third of those persons who attended such a program stopped their tobacco use and nearly one-half reduced their tobacco use as a result of the program.
