The Quit Clinics help you quit smoking. All Haldimand and Norfolk residents are eligible to come to the clinics.
Services at the Quit Clinics
Public Health Nurses provide services at the Quit Clinics. Services include:
- An initial group STOP smoking workshop. The workshop will review making a quit plan, coping techniques and strategies while you are trying to quit smoking. At this workshop you will receive a 5 week supply of nicotine patches.
- If you need extra support after the STOP workshop, you can come for one-on-one counselling sessions with a Public Health Nurse. Sessions are every two weeks to help you while you cut down or quit smoking. Sessions are about 30 minutes. Nicotine patches, gum or lozenges are provided while supplies last. These products are dispensed at counselling sessions.
* If a client is pregnant, breastfeeding, or 17 and under, a public health nurse will follow-up with the client’s physician to assess if NRT is a safe treatment for the client.
