Fairview Hospital offers an Ongoing Smoking Cessation Program that is designed to provide a personal approach to kicking the habit of smoking.
Our comprehensive program includes an ongoing support group, one-on-one counseling, Nicotine Replacement Therapy and access to support on weekends. An individual assessment is a required part of the program which creates a personal quit plan for each person.
A doctor's referral is needed for entrance to the program which is covered by most insurances. Classes meet at Fairview Hospital. Interpreter services are available. Tobacco Treatment Programs are also available and offered in local schools. For more information, call (413) 854-9737.
The initial assessment is a one-on-one meeting to determine whether the motivation is internal or external, their medical history and medication, stresses and triggers in their life and sometimes, even family dynamics play a role in our approach.
Certified Tobacco Treatment Counselor Cheryl Thomson is available for group sessions uoon request. Please call (413) 854-9608.
It takes a long time to quit something that you've been doing for many years, we welcome people as long as they want to come.
