What you can expect:
- Privacy and flexibility of in-person, phone, or telehealth counseling
- Focus on your particular circumstances, with consideration of your goals and lifestyle
- Proven methods to help you manage withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapses
- Meetings with a nicotine dependence specialist to discuss medication options, if necessary
- Continuous support, understanding and encouragement
