Fresh Start is tailored to individuals with busy lifestyles that are serious about quitting tobacco use.

 

According to B.j. Hatton, coordinator of Cardio-Pulmonary Services at ACH, the department is excited to be able to continue to provide this service to the community.

 

“We have seen some great results and excellent quit rates since first initiating the program,†said Hatton.  “This gives us the opportunity to continue to build upon our success by being able to extend the program to more people in the community.†  

 

She said many people that would like to quit, but just cannot do it alone. 

 

“The program is a way for people to get the individualized treatment and attention they need to help them to be successful,†she said.  “The facilitators put a lot of time and effort into assisting participants to overcome their obstacles.â€

 

The next four-week session will start Wednesday, April 11 from 5 – 6 p.m. and will be held in conference room 1-B, located on the first floor of the hospital.
