Do You Need Help To Quit Smoking?


It's the time of year for resolutions again. If quitting smoking is on your list, Carson Valley Medical Center can help you. Freedom from Tobacco is a seven-week smoking cessation program offered one evening a week at the hospital.

The program promotes positive behavior change that shows you how to become a nonsmoker while having fun with a group as you quit together. The cost of the program is $50, which includes one-on-one support and education from one of Carson Valley Medical Center's specially-trained Respiratory Therapists, a workbook, relaxation CDs, and carbon monoxide tests. Some insurance companies will reimburse the cost of a smoking cessation program, and all graduates of the program will be provided an official letter of completion.

Carson Valley Medical Center is located at the south end of Gardnerville at 1107 Highway 395. Please contact Carson Valley Medical Center Respiratory Services Department at 782-1626 if you have any questions or wish to enroll in the next class.
