This brochure, intended for participants thinking about joining the CTN-0046 (Smoking Cessation and Stimulant Treatment Study (S-CAST)) protocol, provides an overview of the project and answers any questions participants might have. This study will compare participating clinics' treatment as usual for stimulant dependence with a combination of treatment for stimulant dependence and smoking cessation to discover the latter's impact on stimulant-use outcomes, outcomes for other drugs of abuse, and smoking outcomes. Research shows that rates of smoking in cocaine and methamphetamine users are 3-4 times greater than in the general population; it is hoped that this combined approach will be effective for reducing both smoking and stimulant use in participants.
