Do you know someone who wants to quit? We can help.
As an organization that promotes health, the number one thing we can recommend to improve health is to get people to quit smoking.
To have the best chance of helping someone to quit and stay quit, you need to know what you’re up against, what the options are and help them choose a method that would be best for them. Quitting smoking is not easy, but the Porcupine Health Unit can help. A proven relationship exists between the amount of intervention and intensity of treatment, and the success of an individual in quitting tobacco use.
The Health Unit offers a Quit Smoking Clinic that provides:
Free one-on-one counseling sessions with nurses who are trained to help people quit smoking.
Quit smoking plans that are based on individual goals and lifestyle.
The patch, gum, inhaler, lozenge (nicotine replacement products) at a reduced cost (only for clients participating in the Quit Smoking Clinic).
