Fontana Tobacco Treatment Center

(415) 885-7895

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.
