Smoking Cessation Program

Quitting smoking is the single most important thing you can do for your health. If you want to quit smoking, the Smoking Cessation Program (Quit Care Program) can help. 

  • You will have five sessions with an addiction nurse to help you understand what triggers your smoking and how to develop a personal plan to deal with these situations.

  • You may be eligible for cost assistance (up to $75 per year) for stop-smoking medication such as nicotine patch, gum or Zyban. Learn more about the Quit Smoking Drug Program.

  • You can participate in individual and group counseling sessions.
