Tobacco Cessation

Need help giving up tobacco?
Feel like you have tried everything and still haven't been able to quit?
Looking for someone to talk to about it?

The tobacco cessation program at CCHL can help!

Tobacco use is a chronic health condition that often requires repeated attempts to quit. It's a journey that takes time and patience. Research shows that support is important.

Our program offers continued support and encouragement to facilitate and maintain a tobacco-free life.

At the Cayuga Center for Healthy Living, we offer you options for quitting tobacco:

Individual quit plan: with a referral from your primary care physician you can see a nurse practitioner and tobacco cessation specialist to help you develop an individualized plan to work on cessation.
Stay on the Right Track with the Tobacco Cessation Support Group: This FREE monthly support is for 1) individuals who are thinking about quitting; and 2) anyone working on maintaining a quit. The group helps with relapse prevention and provides you with continuous support.

While tobacco cessation is typically not covered by insurance, it is best to check with your health plan regarding coverage of your visit.
