PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Tobacco Free Florida AHEC Cessation Program offers FREE groups in the community to help people quit tobacco for good. Each group is led by a trained specialist who guides participants through the quitting process. They help identify triggers and withdrawal symptoms and brainstorm ways to cope with them. Groups are hosted at locations such as local public community centers, libraries, and hospitals. SRAHEC also offers private groups for locations such as worksites.
