Pre-Approved Tobacco Cessation Registry
The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) maintains an online statewide listing of tobacco cessation counseling services. The Pre-Approved Tobacco Cessation Registry (Registry) was established in 2002 as a resource and referral system for clinicians and health care delivery systems providing cessation counseling services in Pennsylvania.
To be listed on the Registry, providers are required to:
- Submit an application to DOH and
Complete "Every Smoker, Every Time." Providers receive a Certificate of Completion that must be included with their completed Registry application.
