Why Choose Our Program?

North Oaks Tobacco Cessation gives patients the best chance to quit.

Here’s why:

  • Attending counseling sessions can double your chances for successfully quitting tobacco use
  • Individuals who attempt to quit tobacco usage using prescription medication tend to have higher success rates than those who try to quit alone without medication

“Studies show that tobacco users who work with a counselor while taking medications or using nicotine replacement products are three times more likely to quit than those who try to kick the habit without help,” notes Jennifer Littell, FNP-C, Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist.

If you are looking to quit smoking, North Oaks’ Tobacco Cessation Program offers counseling and support to help you start your journey to a smoke-free life.
