Quitting smoking is hard and we want to help. Our smoking cessation programs are designed to provide counseling and support for those interested in quitting smoking.
Hospitalized patients are counseled and provided with information to assist them in becoming nonsmokers. Follow-up support after discharge is also provided.
The Freshstart Program is a smoking cessation program created by the American Cancer Society. The program consists of four classes taught by trained facilitators. The goal of the program is to help participants stop smoking by giving them the information and strategies needed to create their personal plan for quitting while in a supportive group environment. Cost is free.
To register for Freshstart Smoking Cessation classes, call the Healthline at 678-312-5000 or online class registration tool.
