Quitting smoking is hard. Nicotine, the addictive chemical in tobacco is as, if not more, addicting than cocaine or heroin! Free education, medication and support is available by calling 443-523-1700.
- Individual sessions are available by appointment. These sessions can be over the phone or virtual. We currently provide nicotine replacement patches, Chantix, or nicotine gum. Participants must meet with our trained cessation coach to receive continued medication. A medication clearance form signed by a healthcare provider is required to receive the free medication and can be downloaded here .
