Smoking Cessation Programs & Services

Smoking Cessation Programs & Services Photo1

Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the U.S., claiming close to half a million people each year. Which is why we find it critically important that cessation programs are available to help people break their tobacco addiction for good. We work closely with the American Lung Association to provide these programs locally so that tobacco users quit for good.

FREE Freedom From Smoking Group Quit Program

We collaborate with the American Lung Association to develop, strengthen and support
worksite and multi-unit housing smoke-free policies. Secondhand smoke exposure poses serious health threats to children and adults.

Is your workplace smokefree? All workplaces should be 100-percent tobacco-free to ensure employees are breathing healthy air.

For residents of multi-unit housing (e.g., apartment buildings and condominiums), secondhand smoke can be a major concern. It can migrate from other units and common areas and travel through doorways, cracks in walls, electrical lines, plumbing, and ventilation systems.
