Feb 13, 2014
If you are ready to try to quit smoking, or you are struggling to do it on your own, sign up for one of the free STOP workshops being offered by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

­­SIMCOE MUSKOKA –  If you are ready to try to quit smoking, or you are struggling to do it on your own, sign up for one of the free STOP workshops being offered by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.

The workshop lasts about three hours and eligible participants will receive a free, five-week supply of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in the form of patches. NRT has been shown to effectively help people quit smoking by easing withdrawal symptoms.

Workshop participants also receive educational material to support your quit attempt and to help prevent you from slips along the way. 

Preregistration is required by calling the health unit’s Health Connection line at 705-721-7520 or 1-877- 721-7520. The address of your workshop will be provided when you register.
