Tobacco Cessation — Individualized Counseling: One-on-one counseling sessions are an excellent way to assist tobacco users in their cessation efforts. With support and assistance from a tobacco cessation specialist, participants identify triggers to tobacco, learn strategies to overcome urges, learn alternative behaviors and develop a personalized plan for quitting. The tobacco cessation specialist is there for support and guidance along the road to quitting.
Tobacco Cessation — Support Group: Support groups are an essential part of any behavior change program. Facilitated by a tobacco cessation specialist, participants share their challenges and successes associated with their quitting process. The facilitator will continually provide additional resources and skill development throughout the quitting process. These groups typically meet weekly or biweekly for 45–60 minutes and are an excellent follow-up to individualized counseling or seminars.
