Tobacco Cessation Support and Education Classes

Quitting isn't easy and we're offering several options to help you along the way.  

The Freedom From Smoking Program is a REALISTIC and REASONABLE method to stop smoking!  The Program utilizes nicotine replacement therapy in the form of nicotine patches or other prescription medications to minimize nicotine withdrawal. 
Groups meet for one hour each week, for 8 weeks, with continuing support for 6 weeks.
Please contact Debbie Bell at 564-5559  for more information about the program or to learn where there is a group offered near you. Registration is recommended. Currently there is no charge for the class however you may be responsible for the nicotine replacement therapy products.  



   1-800-QUIT-NOW:  The Kentucky Tobacco Quit-line
The Quit Line, 1-800-QUIT NOW, offers a one-on-one proactive counseling program for tobacco users and their friends and family who are ready to quit using tobacco products.  The Quit Line brochure explains who can call and the benefits of calling the quit line.
