You can't change the writing within the quotation marks, because you are using the words exactly as written. There are two changes I would make to your sentence. Put 'the' in front of CDC, and place the final period within the quotation mark.

 

In addition to this, the CDC "recommends tax and price increases and mass media campaigns to reduce the number the number of youth who start smoking and to promote cessation and telephone quit line support, as well as a number of health care system interventions, also to increase cessation."
