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: Single Session and Multi Session.
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 Tobacco Cessation Specialist will guide 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
PATIENT REFERRAL PROGRAMS
The Single Session 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 Multi Session 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 multi session program.
Both programs offer free nicotine replacement therapy (while supplies last), educational materials, goodies for their quit day, and follow-up support.
