We’re committed to fulfilling the unique needs of each patient and their family, offering support and guidance through every stage of their journey, which is why we provide the following programs to our community at no cost.
Fresh Start, also known as smoking cessation, is open to anyone that wants to quit tobacco use. This program is a collaboration with the American Cancer Society. This is a FREE 4 week program that meets one-hour each week and is taught by a certified Fresh Start facilitator. In this program you will learn about the benefits of quitting smoking and gain valuable knowledge and skills in order to plan YOUR quit date. Participants will be offered free smoking cessation patches, as well as a kit full of helpful resources.
