What is smoking cessation?  

Smoking cessation simply is quitting smoking.  We offer a six week tobacco focused group to help support your quitting attempt.   Benefits of this focused group are:

  • Specialized educational topics
  • Opportunities to learn coping techniques from your peers
  • Increased ability to see issues more clearly when expressed by others
  • Increased willingness to share concerns which may be seen as unique to this journey
  • Opportunity to learn from the diversity of other group members
