Healthy Suffolk: Learn to Be…Tobacco Free

       Healthy Suffolk: Learn to Be…Tobacco Free

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and Health Commissioner James Tomarken, MD, encourage residents who use tobacco to obtain help in breaking their addiction through Suffolk County’s “Learn to Be …Tobacco Free” program.

“We are promoting good health to all residents in Suffolk County,” said County Executive Bellone. “For those who are addicted to tobacco or nicotine products, we urge them to get the support they need to prevent illnesses that are caused by tobacco.”

“Breaking an addiction to nicotine can be very difficult,” 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 are as follows:
