The UCSF Fontana Tobacco Treatment Center offers classes as well as individual consultations with health care professionals trained in treating tobacco addiction. We help smokers maximize the likelihood of quitting for good.

The center was named in memory of Jeanne Fontana, who was grateful to the center for helping her overcome her addiction to cigarettes. She made the Fontana Tobacco Treatment Center a beneficiary of her trust to fund current programs and establish an endowment to support future programs.

The center's services include:

  • Stop Smoking/Vaping/Chewing Class. This four-week interactive course focuses on smoking and health, addiction, motivation and strategies for quitting. The class is led by Suzanne Harris, a registered nurse and certified tobacco treatment specialist; Lisa Kroon, a pharmacist and tobacco treatment specialist; and Sonia Sharma, a physician assistant and tobacco treatment specialist.
  • Freedom From Smoking/Vaping/Chewing Support Group. This group is for graduates of the Stop Smoking/Vaping/Chewing Class, including those who aren't yet smoke free. It provides extra support to help people become and stay smoke free. The class meets on Mondays at the Mount Zion campus from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m.

No referrals are required to make an appointment or enroll in a class.
