Smokers' Health

Victory We can help you improve your health, even if you find it difficult to stop smoking altogether. People who reduce and stop using tobacco enjoy immediate and substantial health benefits. Our no-cost Smokers Health program is designed to help those who use tobacco improve their health. Individual counseling and a medication consultation are provided by our Lifestyle Counselor and physician or nurse practitioner.

One-on-one lifestyle management counseling is available to help you improve your health whether you decide to stop smoking or not. Either way, we are here for you.
