Welcome to Tobacco Cessation offered at Charlotte’s Center for Wellness Promotion!
Taking the steps towards a tobacco free lifestyle is not easy, but we are here to help. At the Center for Wellness Promotion, we offer a Tobacco Cessation Program facilitated by a Tobacco Treatment Specialist. While the program is structured (see below for more info), it is also tailored to your goals and needs. This program is designed for all forms of tobacco use, including e-cigarettes and vapes.
This program is free and sessions can be held online or in-person. To schedule an appointment, call the Center for Wellness Promotion at 704-687-7407 and request a tobacco cessation intake appointment.
This program will consist of 4-6 sessions that are 90 minute long, with one session per week.
Session 1: 1hr to get to know you and will assess where you are with your tobacco or vape use.
Session 2: During this session, education and feedback is provided. This is where a quit date is scheduled and you will receive your own quit kit, which consists of various items to aid in your time of cessation. Information on Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) is also provided (see below for what is offered currently).
Session 3: This will be your pre-quit date check-in. After the quit-date is started, the facilitator will check in daily to see how you are doing.
Session 4: This will be your post-quit date check in session. We will address any issues you may have and address relapse if it occurs.
NRT is ordered from the Student Health Center pharmacy when requested. It can be provided to you with a prescription. With Student Blue UNC Charlotte health insurance, these products are free.
