Public Health and Wellness Offers Free Nicotine Patches to Stop Smoking
Monday August 17, 2009
LOUISVILLE, Ky. The Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness is now offering free nicotine replacement patches to those who enroll in Cooper/Clayton stop smoking classes now through October 20.
The Cooper/Clayton method to stop smoking is a 13 week program that includes weekly support group meetings combined with use of nicotine replacement patches. While the classes have been free, most of the classes had required that participants purchase their own nicotine replacement patches up until now. Funding for free nicotine patches was made possible by a grant from the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA) as well as from other program funds.
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).
