FreshStart Smoking Treatment Class
This 6 week class begins on June 14 @ 2 p.m.
The FreshStart program is designed to help smokers quit smoking and develop coping skills to combat the psychological and physical side effects of smoking treatment. This straightforward, upbeat program is intended to stress the positives of the smoking treatment experience – the reasons to quit, the benefits of quitting – while honestly exploring the very real, unpleasant feelings that are a part of beating the addiction to nicotine and the habit of smoking.
Freshstart focuses on an active, pragmatic approach to quitting smoking with each participant directing his or her own efforts to quit. Freshstart emphasizes each member’s personal responsibility for their success.
