Cessation Services Fact Sheet

Spanish version



Freedom From Smoking is a seven week-eight session tobacco cessation intervention developed by the American Lung Association.  This series of sessions identifies why a smoker smokes, options for nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy, helps tobacco users set a quit date, and provides support to remain tobacco-free.  Lectures, group discussion, and skills practice focusing on a variety of evidence-based cessation practices are led by a certified facilitator. 

Cooper/Clayton Method to Stop Smoking is a twelve-session cessation intervention developed by Drs. Thomas M. Cooper & Richard R. Clayton.  The program combines counseling with nicotine replacement therapy and social support to maximize success with minimal relapse.  A trained facilitator, primarily in a group setting, provides the intervention, which addresses all aspects of smoking-physical, psychological, and behavioral.

To find out when face-to-face classes (Freedom from Smoking or Cooper Clayton) are offered please call your local health department.
