Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is offering a Tobacco Cessation Workshop starting on September 7, 2016.
The Tobacco Cessation Workshop is a FREE quit smoking program that meets for an hour each week in a caring and encouraging group format. Each week you will be given concrete strategies to use on working toward your goal of tobacco-free living. Together, the group will develop an understanding of the dynamics of tobacco addiction and the ability to choose alternative behaviors to tobacco use. The role of nutrition and healthy habits is covered as well as goal-setting and follow-through.
The group is facilitated by a Licensed Social Worker who has been trained as a Tobacco Treatment Specialist. Group members are encouraged to discuss tobacco treatment medicines with their Primary Care Providers in addition to this behavior modification program.
Classes meet every Wednesday from 5:00 – 6:00 PM at BMH in Conference Room B. The Tobacco Cessation Workshop is also available at Parks Place in Bellows Falls starting September 6 -27 from 5:00 - 6:00 PM. To register in advance or get more information on either location, please call 802-251-8456.
