Mahaska Health Partnership to hold Freedom from Smoking Clinic
OSKALOOSA – Mahaska Health Partnership Cardiopulmonary Services will be offering an seven-week Freedom from Smoking Clinic beginning Tuesday, Sept. 17.
Freedom from Smoking is a clinic offered by the American Lung Association that emphasizes long-term freedom from smoking. According to certified facilitator Kai Schwab, BA, RPSGT, each smoker who joins this clinic will develop an individual plan for quitting and will learn the latest updates on stress management and pharmaceutical interventions.
“I encourage anyone even thinking about quitting to attend this session,” Schwab stressed. “We’ll be discussing how the sessions are structured and what is required for people who decide to attend.”
Schwab said that even if people have tried to stop smoking before, they should continue trying to quit. Nicotine is addictive and it is hard to quit. The Freedom from Smoking program can help smokers break their habit with proven steps to help make quitting easier and more successful.
The Freedom from Smoking sessions will be offered over seven weeks with class meeting every Tuesday, beginning Sept. 17 through Oct.29, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on the MHP campus in Oskaloosa.
