Freedom From Smoking® Program


Buchanan County Health Center  will be offering the Freedom From Smoking® program, a 7-week smoking cessation class for adults. Meetings will be held on 7 consecutive Tuesdays and one Thursday meeting from May 13th to June 24th from 4:30pm-6pm at Buchanan County Health Center.

As America’s gold standard smoking cessation program for over 25 years, Freedom From Smoking® helps participants create personalized plans to overcome their tobacco addiction.

With a recent new edition, the program is based on the latest research on addiction and behavior change. It approaches the difficulties of quitting with a sensitive, supportive style.

Studies show that people who use the program are six times more likely to be smoke-free one year later than those who try to quit on their own.

The program is especially helpful because it’s taught by a trained facilitator who helps participants learn what triggers their smoking, when they’re most likely to smoke, and the best way to approach the quitting process.

The public can enroll in the program by calling 319.332.0850, Monday-Friday 5am-8pm.
