About the Class

This 5 week group smoking cessation class is for anyone who uses tobacco and wants to stop for good.  Led by a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist, classes meet once a week for one hour for a total of 5 weeks.  Perhaps most importantly, registration for this class is free.

How it works

Each participant will receive an individual assessment of his or her tobacco addiction and a look at why treatment may have been ineffective in the past.  In addition to the individualized attention, the class features group support to help participants in their path to becoming tobacco free.  Follow-up support continues after class sessions have finished, with the ultimate goal being long-term control.

Why Quitting is Important

Smoking is a leading source of preventable disease and death.  In the United States, one in five adults smoke, and more than 1, 200 people die daily from smoking-related diseases.

Who Should Attend

This class is for anyone who uses tobacco products and wants to stop.  Any type of tobacco user (cigarette, cigar, e-cigarette, dip/chew, or others) is invited to attend.
