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 for the center's help in overcoming her addiction to cigarettes. She named the Fontana Tobacco Treatment Center a beneficiary of her trust to fund current programs as well as establish an endowment to support future programs.

The center's services include:

  • Stop Smoking 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 Carol Schulte, a social worker. Classes meet on Monday evenings at the Mount Zion campus and on Friday mornings at the Parnassus campus. Enroll online.
  • Freedom From Smoking Support Group — This class is for graduates of the Stop Smoking 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.
