Smoking Cessation Group

Who We Help

Smoking Cessation is a CLOSED group and must be joined at the beginning of its cycle.

Man cuts a cigarette with scissors.

It is available to any client of ASYR who is 18 years of age and older and is facing the challenges associated with substance use, and/or problem gambling issues in addition to wanting to make changes to the harmful use and impacts of smoking in their lives. A long-term goal of abstinence to smoking is required.

How We Help

Topics covered during the group-based treatment sessions include:

  • Psycho-education about smoking and cessation
  • Mini homework assignments and review
  • Processing cravings and feelings
  • Nicotine Replacement Therapy (gum, lozenge, inhaler and/or patch) is provided to clients

The group meets weekly (for 12-weeks). An orientation session is required prior to joining this group.
