Intervening with Teen Tobacco Users (TEG):
A Positive Alternative to Suspension


This comprehensive, 8-session educational program is for students in grades 7-12 who don’t want to stop using tobacco. This may include teens who violate school policy or community ordinances on underage tobacco use. Many schools use Intervening With Teen Tobacco Users (TEG) as a positive alternative to suspension and juvenile courts as diversion.



They gain the knowledge, motivation, and action steps to move toward a healthier, tobacco-free lifestyle. Participants are encouraged to reduce their tobacco use, quit on their own, or join a voluntary tobacco cessation program.
