Smoking Cessation Program

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.   

Controlling Health Care Costs through Smoking Cessation 

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.
