Categories: Health Services | Author: gknutson | Posted: 4/27/2017 | Views: 1282

Suffolk County Health Commissioner Dr. James Tomarken encourages residents who use tobacco to obtain help in breaking their addiction by signing up for Suffolk County’s “Learn to Be …Tobacco Free” program. The program offers assistance with planning, support, counseling and medication if warranted.

“We know more than ever about what works and what doesn't,” said Dr. Tomarken. “Studies have shown that smokers who try to quit smoking using a combination of behavioral support and medicine are three times more likely to be successful than those who try to stop smoking without support.”

The classes are free to Suffolk County residents, though there is a nominal fee for medication for medically eligible participants. Classes will be held as follows:
