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.
