Public Health and Wellness Offers Stop Smoking Classes

Wednesday January 5, 2011

Start the New Year right – become a nonsmoker!

The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness, the Kentucky Cancer Program and other community partners are offering free stop smoking classes using the Cooper/Clayton method. The Cooper/Clayton method to stop smoking is a 13 week program that includes weekly support group meetings combined with the use of nicotine replacement products such as patches and gum. The classes are free, but they require participants younger than age 60 to purchase at least some of their own nicotine replacement products. Free nicotine replacement products are available to people age 60 and older through a grant by the Kentucky Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA).

Below is a list of Cooper/Clayton stop smoking classes. The date listed is the start day of the 13 week course. Registration for the program is required. To register phone 574 – STOP (574-7867).
