Free Freedom from Smoking Program Offered Begins October 23
To help smokers kick the habit, MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena will host the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking® program this fall. The free eight-week program will be held beginning October 23 through December 11, 2018. Sessions will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m., in the Leaning Center, located on the north end of campus, at MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena.
Designed to help smokers gain control over their behavior, each session is led by a certified American Lung Association facilitator. Attendees will be given support, encouragement and the tools to develop a plan for quitting and living a smoke-free life. Led in a group format, the program sessions help encourage attendees to work on the process and problems of quitting, individually and as part of a group.
