PHDMC partners with worksites, schools, and community organizations to offer free tobacco cessation for residents of Montgomery County; and participants receive a one month supply of patches.
Cessation is provided by a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist using the Mayo Clinic Cessation Model:
- Week 1: Thinking about quitting.
- Week 2: Getting ready.
- Week 3: It’s quit week.
- Week 4: Staying quit for good.
- Week 5: All other concerns.
PHDMC has a very successful cessation partnership with Miami Valley Hospital, CareSource, and many other worksites. In the past year, cessation services offered throughout Montgomery County have served over 350 community members with over 60% successfully quitting.
