In The Spot: Becoming Tobacco Free

Are you or someone you care about eager to kick the habit once and for all?

Various ProMedica facilities are offering Becoming Tobacco Free smoking cessation programs for our patients, employees and community members in 2014. During these multi-session programs, participants will design personal quitting plans, which include setting a quit date, adapting to a tobacco free lifestyle, and remaining tobacco free. Held in a supportive setting, the tobacco cessation classes are designed to respect everyone’s individual needs and goals.

For your convenience, programs run monthly at ProMedica Toledo Hospital, ProMedica St. Luke’s Hospital, ProMedica Flower Hospital, and ProMedica Bixby Hospital. Find a program that fits your schedule.
