Smoking Cessation is a program we run to help smokers quit. We work with the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health to offer free Nicotine Replacement Therapy for our enrolled patients.
Patients in the program are entitled to receive up to 26 weeks of FREE nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) as well as one-on-one counselling sessions with a nurse practitioner or nurse. Patients in the program may also be offered a prescription of either Zyban or Champix which can double their chances of quitting successfully. If the patient has not been successful after the 26 weeks of NRT, they may enroll in the program again after one calendar year. There are no restrictions to the number of times a patient may enroll in the program.
Remember, it’s never too late to quit. Quitting is hard. Quitting starts with you, but we are here to work with you as you go on this journey.
