Smoking Cessation

Quit Smoking Workshop

Our Family Health Team offers smoking cessation education for those who are thinking about quitting or are ready to quit using tobacco. We offer a 1.5-hour quit smoking workshop where we discuss strategies and methods for quitting, ways to overcome barriers to quitting, how to make a quit plan/manage withdrawal symptoms and how to prevent a relapse.

After completing the workshop, participants are invited to schedule an individual appointment with a Nurse Educator to receive further support and information. Free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), if indicated, can be dispensed at this time.

If you are interested in our quit smoking program, please contact Rapids Family Health Team at 519-339-8949 to secure a spot in a workshop. Participants must have a Primary Care Provider such as a Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner to receive NRT.
