Abstract Cigarette smoking remains a leading preventable cause of poor pregnancy outcomes and infant morbidity and mortality. Despite three decades of research encompassing more than 60 trials and 20,000 pregnant women, cessation rates produced by existing interventions are often low (<20\%), especially among socioeconomically disadvantaged women. This has led to a call for the development and testing of novel interventions. One strategy for identifying novel interventions for pregnant smokers is to examine efficacious interventions for other types of substance use disorders (SUDs). Pregnant smokers share many sociodemographic similarities with other sub-populations of individuals with SUDs, suggesting that interventions efficacious with the latter may also benefit the former. The National Institute on Drug Abuse's guide, "Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment: A Research-based Guide", presents empirically validated principles of effective treatments for other SUDs. The present report enumerates these principles, briefly describes some of the empirical evidence supporting them, and explores their potential application to the treatment of smoking during pregnancy. Overall, the results of this exercise suggest much promise for enhancing treatment outcomes for pregnant smokers by borrowing from and extending what has been learned with other populations with SUDs.
