Tobacco cessation program

Nicotine is highly addictive. It may seem impossible to quit, but thousands quit every year and you can too. Once you decide to quit, we’re here to help. All tobacco users, including those who use cigarettes, smokeless, e-cigarette, and vaping products, can get the support to break free from this addiction for good.

We offer a free tobacco cessation program called Freedom from Smoking. This small group program includes eight one-hour sessions led by a certified Freedom from Smoking facilitator and features a step-by-step plan for quitting. Each session is designed to help tobacco users understand their triggers and urges and develop coping strategies to stay committed to quitting. This engaging program uses a variety of evidence-based techniques to personalize and address individual needs along with the benefits of support from the group. 

Freedom from Smoking is open to anyone 18 years and older, regardless of insurance.

Call 1-866-896-4602 or email for more information or to schedule one-on-one with a facilitator. 

Medications that really help

Many prescription medications can help with cravings and stress related to quitting tobacco—plus, they can double your chances of quitting and staying nicotine-free.

Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), such as gum or patches, can also be a great way to help you stop use for good. NRTs allow you to get the nicotine your body craves without the harmful chemicals, helping to decrease withdrawal symptoms and allowing you to focus on quitting.

Once you enroll in the program, you can get medications and NRTs at no cost. You just need a prescription from your primary care provider.
