Willis-Knighton Health System has enhanced its tobacco cessation program with new branding, new programs and a new passion to help smokers quit. With the help of a certified tobacco treatment specialist, you will create a tailored treatment program to help you successfully end tobacco use. The program offers one-on-one counseling with a specialist as well as group sessions where you’ll join a small group of peers who work together to stop tobacco use. Participants will learn why there are no advantages to tobacco use, strategies to discontinue tobacco use, how to mentally prepare, and methods proven to help tobacco users quit. It takes time, patience and practice to quit smoking for good. Willis-Knighton is here to provide help and support for this process to give you the best chance to stop smoking!
