Smoking Cessation Program
Smoking cessation significantly reduces health risks and health care expenses. According to the American Lung Association®, employers can save an estimated $3,400 per year for every individual who quits smoking. Smoking is the most preventable cause of premature death in the United States.
Wellness and Corporate Health Services offers onsite smoking cessation programs using a trained facilitator from the Freedom From Smoking Program®. Freedom From Smoking generates a higher quit rate than people who try to quit on their own. Studies find that 25% of participants report not smoking one year after the program ends, while only 5% who quit cold turkey remain non-smokers after one year.
