SCRIPT® (Smoking Cessation and Reduction in Pregnancy Treatment) is an evidence-based program designed to help pregnant women quit smoking or reduce their tobacco consumption during pregnancy. The program aims to improve both maternal and infant health outcomes by reducing the harmful effects of smoking during pregnancy.
Randomized and cohort studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and other authorities have established that quit rates for SCRIPT® patients are significantly higher than for patients receiving other care.
SCRIPT® is designed as a component of a patient education program for prenatal care providers and is cited by the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality’s Smoking Cessation Clinical Practice Guidelines.
SCRIPT® counseling is a reimbursable service under the Patient and Affordable Care Act.
