Nicotine Dependence Center

Mayo Clinic's Nicotine Dependence Center (NDC), in Rochester, Minn., is comprised of three programs: Treatment, Education and Research. The full integration of all three programs is consistent with the Mayo philosophy of providing the best care possible for our patients, in this case, those who use tobacco. The incorporation of clinical practice, patient and staff education, and research throughout our efforts allows for the prompt translation of research findings into patient care.
