Citizen Advocates can connect individuals to a variety of programs and services that contribute to improved physical health. Most people may not realize, but there are many more factors that can influence physical health beyond a yearly check-up at the doctor’s office.
Smoking cessation services
We offer motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy and replacement therapy for people who would like to end their dependence on nicotine delivery systems.
Quitting smoking is the best thing anyone can do to improve their health immediately. The effects of smoking on a person’s health and the health of others is well documented.
Our trained and caring counselors offer motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy and nicotine replacement therapy for individuals with a desire to end their dependence on nicotine.
Helping smokers to quit by providing them with repeated counseling and medication is proven to have the highest quitting success rate. The Department of Health and Human Services has found that counseling in person or over the phone increases successful quit attempts by 30% to 50%. When a provider prescribes medication in addition to counseling, quit attempts are 70% more successful than with counseling alone.
All Citizen Advocates locations are smoke and tobacco free for the health and well being of those we support and the community.
This is a broad term for any type of therapy focused on the recovery of two or more people. Each group session has a trained leader, and can be as effective as individual therapy.
