Technology-Enhanced Quitline Services to Prevent Smoking Relapse

The purpose of this study is to see if automated telephone monitoring will enhance existing quitline services, such as Alere Wellbeing's Quit For Life program, and help people quit smoking. If successful, this intervention could be incorporated into existing quitline protocols and delivered to millions of people who are trying to quit smoking.
