Patient Referral Programs

As a Doctor or Healthcare Professional, your influence can help inspire your patients to quit smoking and live longer, healthier lives.  Our classes are free for your patients to attend.  We have a 37% success rate, as opposed to 7% when people try to do it themselves.

The Group Quit tobacco cessation programs are provided by the Area Health Education Center (AHEC), which serve all 67 counties in Florida. AHEC is the “come in” option with Tobacco Free Florida. We offer two different programs for people who want to attend a face to face class: Tools to Quit and Quit Smoking Now.

Both programs educate participants on the negative health effects related to tobacco use, what to expect when quitting, and more importantly, we teach the many benefits of quitting.  A certified Tobacco Cessation Specialist, or trained facilitator, will guides participants as they identify everyday triggers and withdrawal symptoms.  Our specialist will help the participants brainstorm ways to personally cope with the difficult withdrawal process.

The Group Quit TOPICS INCLUDE:

Addiction, withdrawal, and medications

Planning for the “Quit date”

Dealing with triggers

Overcoming cravings

Relapse prevention

PATIENT REFERRAL PROGRAMS

The Tools to Quit program is a one-time 2 hour seminar in which participants receive information on how to select and prepare for their own quit date.

The Quit Smoking Now program provides more support on a weekly basis as classes are held over a six-week period. In the group setting participants provide each other with additional support. All participants quit by the third week’s meeting in the Quit Smoking Now program.

Both IQUIT programs offer free nicotine replacement therapy (while supplies last), educational materials, goodies for their quit day, and follow-up support. We like to have patients referred who are ready to quit within the next 30 days.
