Freshstart (Smoking Cessation Program)

Freshstart is a group-based tobacco cessation support program developed by the American Cancer Society. Freshstart is designed to help smokers plan a successful quit attempt by providing essential information, skills for coping with cravings, and group support. Program participants choose a combination of techniques and cessation treatments they will use in their quit attempt. The Freshstart evidence-based approach helps participants increase their motivation to quit, learn effective approaches for quitting and guide them in making a successful quit attempt through information, activities, and discussion. The evidence-based components of Freshstart include:

  1. Motivational intervention activities
  2. Practical counseling (problem solving skills)
  3. Social support
  4. Education about medication and approaches to quitting

Freshstart is a 3-week program meeting 1 1/2 hours per week. The program is FREE!
