Tobacco & Vape Free Initiative

Welcome to the Tobacco & Vape Free Initiative! We are a collaboration between Pocono Mountains United Way (PMUW) and the American Lung Association on a mission to promote healthier lives by tackling tobacco and vaping addiction. Join us in creating a tobacco and vape-free future!

No matter who you are - a student, parent, educator, or community member - there's something for everyone in our initiative. PMUW offers the Lung Association's evidence-based programs like Not on Tobacco (N-O-T), which equips young individuals with the tools to break free from addiction. In addition, discover the Lung Association's intervention for Nicotine Dependence (INDEPTH) program, offering education and prevention strategies as alternatives to suspension for students.

Together, we can advocate for comprehensive clean indoor air (CIAA) policies, creating smoke-free environments in public spaces, workplaces, and multi-unit housing. Join our passionate youth advocates in the Tobacco Resistance Unit (TRU) movement, promoting tobacco-free lifestyles through education, advocacy, and community engagement.

Opioid Task Force

The Opioid Community Resource Guide is a reference tool to help individuals who are impacted by opiate use and addiction. It is not a comprehensive guide to all opiate addiction concerns but is a “key issues” guide for supporting opiate addiction treatment and recovery. To view or download this resource, click here.
