Tobacco Cessation

Tobacco usage contributes to over 480,000 deaths in the United States each year. Most tobacco users say they would quit if it was just a little easier. Today, it can be.

A certified tobacco treatment specialist understands the science behind tobacco addiction and nicotine withdrawal symptoms. They provide clear and accurate information about the causes and consequences of tobacco use and develop individualized treatment plans with a non-judgmental and patient centered approach.

Through education, treatment, and counseling options, our aim is to help 100 percent of patients quit. Cessation medications may be available at reduced and/or no cost for those who qualify from Altru Health Foundation.

If you are ready to quit any form of tobacco, Altru Health System’s Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialists are here to help. Please call 701.780.5345.
