Central Louisiana smokers are urged to apply to the Smoking Cessation Trust, once the smoker’s information is submitted, the judge assigned to the Trust reviews the person’s qualifications and, if it is determined they meet the requirements, are added as members of the Trust. Central Louisiana residents will receive their counseling from CMAP’s certified Tobacco Training Specialist, who will meet with the smoker individually to determine a plan of action. After the initial assessment, the smoker attends six group-counseling sessions, where the specialist works with smokers on the various strategies and motivations to help them quit for good.
Smoking Cessation Trust counseling is available free of charge to any Central Louisiana resident who began smoking cigarettes before September 1, 1988. If you began smoking before September 1, 1988, you can apply one of two ways: online at www.smokingcessationtrust.org/CMAP or call CMAP toll-free at 855-767-3027. If you are not eligible for the Trust services but at ready to quit, please call the Louisiana Tobacco Quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW) for free counseling.
