Health Unit: Quit smoking and celebrate with us!

March 12, 2015

Huron County, ON – The Health Unit, in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, has been offering STOP (Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients) workshops in the current model for one year.

To celebrate, the Health Unit is hosting a special “anniversary” STOP workshop on March 31 at 5 pm in Exeter with a small celebration during the session.

As always, the workshop gives participants information on building a quit plan, coping with cravings and nicotine replacement. Eligible participants are able to receive five weeks’ worth of nicotine replacement patches free of charge.

“It has been such a fabulous year! Through this program we have met many wonderful people including participants and community partners who have helped to host workshops,” says Public Health Nurse Julie Verch. “We look forward to the future and to meeting many more participants and working with our community partners.”

Pre-registration for STOP workshops is required so please register early! To learn more, call the Huron County Health Unit at 519-482-3416 or toll free 1-877-837-6143.
