residents wishing to kick their tobacco habits can access the tools and
support needed to build a tobacco-free lifestyle when QuitCore, can
attend a free Alberta Health Services (AHS) tobacco-cessation program.
Led by trained cessation professionals, the QuitCore program teaches people who use tobacco how to develop
a plan to quit while providing strategies to address recovery symptoms,
manage stress and, ultimately, prevent relapse. The program also connects participants with others trying to quit.
By taking part in QuitCore, participants can also access financial supports for nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). Combining counselling such as that offered through this program with the useÂÂ NRTs increases an individual’s chances of quitting successfully when compared to using one quit method alone.
QuitCore will be offered from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Mondays starting January 15th at the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre (Education Room), 5430 47 Avenue.
