Freedom from Smoking


Sedalia, Missouri, April 10, 2017 – Smokers who want to kick the habit can find the tools they need to be successful through Bothwell Regional Health Center’s “Freedom from Smoking” program, which begins May 3.

The class, an eight-session behavior-modification program, follows the American Lung Association’s curriculum. It will meet from 6-7 p.m. on Wednesday evenings for seven weeks in the Bothwell Education Center, located at the corner of 14th Street and Ingram Avenue.

The cost for the class is $50, and the deadline to register is April 26. Registrations are available online at www.brhc.org. There must be at least 15 registrants or the classes won’t be held.

Participants will attend three sessions before “Quit Day.” For added support, the group will meet twice during the week of “Quit Day,” helping to ensure participants have the support and strategies they need to stay smoke-free. The additional class is May 26.

BRHC’s Freedom from Smoking program uses an addiction-based model and behavior-change principles.
The U.S. Public Health Service’s cessation guidelines suggest smokers who want to quit should use FDA approved
cessation medications in conjunction with individual or group counseling.
