The Smoking Cessation Program offers intensive counseling and treatment opportunities for patients who are current tobacco users and former users who are at risk of relapse.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that combining counseling and pharmacotherapy is the most effective approach to treating nicotine dependence. Additionally, smoking abstinence increases with increased intensity of counseling that addresses the social and psychological factors that create strong barriers to long-term smoking abstinence.
