SCRIPT

The Smoking Cessation and Reduction In Pregnant Treatment method or SCRIPT program, was specifically designed to aid pregnant women to reduce their tobacco use or to completely quit smoking. This evidence based program has been extensively evaluated in the Unites States and is offered through partnerships with provider offices, clinics, insurance plans, and health departments right here in the Upper Peninsula. 

SCRIPT is a free program for pregnant women and is a self guided program lasting one week to 10 days. Many are eligible for incentives for a reduction in tobacco use as a part of this program.
