People who smoke and want to quit are invited to a free information session at Newport Hospital about services to stop smoking. This program is conducted by certified, bilingual tobacco treatment specialists.
Research has shown that a combination of counseling and nicotine replacement works well with smokers who are trying to quit. In this program, your smoking history will be assessed to determine a treatment plan, you will have individual or group sessions appropriate to your stage in the quitting process, and you will receive a recommendation for nicotine replacement (patch, lozenge or gum).
Where: Newport Hospital, Powel Avenue entrance
When: Tuesday, January 8, 5 p.m.
This program is sponsored by the Rhode Island Department of Health Tobacco Control Program.
This event is free and open to all. Please call 845-1548 for more information or to register.
