Smoking causes fatal lung cancer. Our smoking and tobacco cessation program uses the QuitSmart® system led by a heath care professional certified as a QuitSmart® Leader. The program is a simple three-session program developed over 25 years of research and practice by the director of the QuitSmart® program at Duke University Addictions Program. Individual or group sessions are available for those wishing to be “Smoke Free”.
You Can Quit! We Can Help.
Results of the QuitSmart® treatment are encouraging. The success rate is double or triple the success rates of most tobacco treatment plans.
The tobacco cessation program teaches smokers two ways to overcome physical addiction:
- systematic switching to brands progressively lower in nicotine delivery prior to quitting, and
- use of nicotine-replacement therapy
In addition, patients will use:
- a hypnosis CD or audiotape to reduce the stress of quitting, and
- a patented realistic cigarette substitute to break the smoking habit.
