Smoking Cessation

Woman named Lucie

 Our specially trained nurse can help you stop smoking. Many patients meet the counsellor to simply investigate their options and determine when they might be ready to quit. Others want help to reduce their cigarette consumption. Some wish to stop smoking completely. The program consists of individual counselling sessions to understand the nicotine addiction, ongoing assessment of your smoking status, support with developing a comprehensive personal quit plan when you are ready, and ongoing support once you quit, to prevent relapse.
