The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of incentive programs for the treatment of nicotine dependence in women who have problems with substance dependence.

Study summary:

This study will determine the influence of voucher-based CM on reducing smoking (and other drug) use during pregnancy or in post-partum women with children under 1 year of age living with them, or in non-pregnant females who smoke. We are targeting smoking cessation since cigarette use is so prevalent in our service. We will compare a control group to two different voucher-based contingent-reinforcement procedures: one that targets smoking abstinence alone vs. one that offers additional incentives for negative BAL and urinalysis results.


Inclusion Criteria: - Pregnant and or post-partum with at least one child under 1 year old living with them, or non-pregnant, non-post-partum females or previous participant in this study protocol - Nicotine Dependent as confirmed by DSM-IV checklist - Current cigarette smoker - Breath CO reading of at least 8 ppm at the time of the initial study screening - Current client with the Shields for Families (Shields) treatment programs Exclusion Criteria: - Non-smoker
