Substance Use Management for a Healthier, Happier You!

May 31, 2024, marks World No Tobacco Day 2024. Organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), this global event serves to inform the public about the dangers of using tobacco and the importance of quitting to help people live healthier lives.

Everyone knows smoking is bad. Bad for health, bad for employers, and bad for the environment. It’s also very costly for employers as well as individuals. Tobacco is the number one cause of preventable death and costs employers an estimated $3,598 per year.

World No Tobacco Day also marks a great time to inform and educate smokers in your workforce about the chance for a healthy, smoke-free future with Pelago substance use management. Aligned with this year’s no tobacco day theme of protecting children, Pelago’s substance use treatment for tobacco also covers adolescents and young adults (age 15 – 26) on their parents’ or guardians’ healthcare & benefit plans.

As we observe World No Tobacco Day, it’s crucial to recognize the role of digital health in combating tobacco use, particularly among children and teenagers who are most vulnerable to online marketing.
