Free smoking cessation program offered

Mar 6,2014
Certified smoking cessation counselors are offering a four-week workshop at Samaritan Internal Medicine, 3521 NW Samaritan Drive Suite 201, on Tuesday evenings, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Workshop classes will be March 11, 18, and 25 (quit date), with a follow-up session on April 8.
 
The workshop utilizes carefully developed strategies for quitting, which include preparation, a quit date and maintenance plans. There is a notebook to go with the program.  Participants can also measure the impact of their efforts with the Smokerlyzer® – a carbon monoxide breath testing device.

The workshop fee is free and no physician referral is required. For more information, contact smoking cessation counselors Patti Dunning, 541-768-5693, pattid@samhealth.org; or Pat McNeely, 541-768-5489, patm@samhealth.org.
