Tobacco Treatment Center

The Fontana Tobacco Treatment Center at UCSF Medical Center offers classes as well as individual consultations with health care professionals trained in treating tobacco addiction. We help smokers maximize the likelihood of success in their efforts to quit.

The center was named in memory of Jeanne Fontana who was grateful to the center for helping her overcome her addiction to cigarettes. She named the UCSF Tobacco Treatment Center one of the beneficiaries of her trust and to fund current programs and the other is being used to establish an endowment for future program support.
