ISDH Health Officials Offer Free Tobacco Cessation Support

Indiana tobacco users will be able to obtain free medication to help them quit smoking as part of an Indiana Tobacco Quitline promotion offered in conjunction with a nationwide smoking cessation campaign. The promotion, scheduled from March 13 to April 2 or until supplies run out, will encourage smokers to call the Indiana Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (800-784-8669) for free help getting medication, in the form of gum or patches, and quit assistance. It will coincide with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Tips from Former Smokers national tobacco education campaign. To participate in the free offer, tobacco users must enroll in the Indiana Tobacco Quitline, which provides a trained coach who will work with them to create a personalized quit plan. The Indiana Tobacco Quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW) is a service provided by the Indiana State Department of Health. Additional information on quitting is available on a link on this article on wrebfm.com.
