The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of substance-abuse treatment as usual plus smoking-cessation treatment (TAU+SCT), relative to substance-abuse treatment as usual (TAU), on drug-abuse outcomes. Specifically, this study will evaluate whether concurrent smoking-cessation treatment improves, worsens, or has no effect on stimulant-use outcomes in smokers who are in outpatient substance-abuse treatment for cocaine or methamphetamine dependence.
