The Adolescent Smoking Cessation Escaping Nicotine and
Tobacco (ASCENT) Program
About 70 percent of smokers 12 to 17 years of age consider themselves addicted

to help youths understand social influences and learn refusal skills.
Use this video to acquaint new facilitators with the ASCENT program,
refresh current group leader knowledge, and reinforce training principles.
