The three elements of the program include:  Individualized Counseling  Bio-Chemical Testing  Contingency Management (Incentives) Each participant engages in tobacco strategies tailored to her unique situation. She is biochemically-tested at each visit to verify nicotine status and, if nicotine-free, qualifies to receive diaper vouchers each month up until baby's first birthday. Ongoing support and health behavior education is interwoven throughout all encounters.
