      EVENT DETAILS
      New Smoking Cessation Classes

      The Worcester County Health Department is committed to helping smokers establish new behavior patterns that lead to a tobacco free lifestyle. Smoking cessation aids (CHANTIX, gum, patch, lozenges) are available through a voucher program.

      Join one of the FREE smoking cessation group classes that are available throughout Worcester County starting in July. Classes will be held at the following locations:

      · Berlin Health Center, 9733 Healthway Drive, Tuesdays from 5-6 pm starting on July 10th.

      · WACS Center, 11827 Ocean Gateway, Ocean City, Wednesdays from 5-6pm starting on July 11th.

      A "Motivation to Quit" class will be held from 5-6 pm at the Berlin Health Center on July 10th and from 5-6 pm at the WACs Center on July 11th. Interested parties can register at this session, or by calling the Worcester County Health Department at 410-632-0056.

      Professionally trained instructors can help participants create a supportive environment to break the smoking addiction. Each individual will learn how to develop a customized plan for quitting. The smoking cessation course consists of 7 sessions covering topics such as stress management, weight control, assertive communication, how to develop a quit plan, relapse prevention, and physical activity. Vouchers are available if a participant would like to add nicotine replacement therapy to their behavior change efforts. Nicotine replacement therapies covered by the voucher program include the patch, gum, and lozenge. Vouchers are also available to help offset the cost of CHANTIX for individuals meeting specific program requirements.

      Instructors will teach a step-by-step method for changing behavior and quitting smoking. A registered dietitian will teach participants how to reduce weight gain when quitting smoking. The group approach uses positive thinking, alternative behaviors, and group support to help participants stop smoking.

      As part of the course, the participants will learn how to identify triggers for relapse and how to develop a plan to prevent it. The course will teach you how to quit smoking and how to stay quit. You can become a non-smoker!
