Fellowship Place has partnered with Communicare, Inc. to offer smoking cessation services. The program is designed to focus on key issues related to smoking, such as health and wellness and financial issues. The program offers two levels of support, Kicking Butts for those who are ready to quit and Learning about Healthy Living for those who might not yet be ready to change their tobacco usage, but may have some interest in learning more about tobacco use, how it affects them, and ways they can lead a healthier life.
Program participants are eligible to receive smoking reduction resources such as over the counter drugs & prescribed aids at little or no cost. The agency is proud of the program’s first year results: 33 individuals participated in a quitters group, of this group, 12 people reduced smoking and 5 stopped smoking. This program is funded by the Connecticut Department of Public Health.
