Program Overview

The FRESHSTART Stop Smoking Program is an evidence-based tobacco cessation program designed to teach participants the necessary information and skills to successfully quit tobacco use for life.

Creating and maintaining physical health and wellness is a lifelong journey. The FRESHSTART Stop Smoking Program teaches information, skills, and strategies that can be used to build a healthy lifestyle and to stop tobacco use. This program is designed to assist individuals to envision and achieve their personal Tobacco Free goals. This innovative program provides training in effective community education as well as tobacco cessation services for individuals and groups. The FRESHSTART Stop Smoking Program is meant to complement other provider or peer services. Our program is FREE and open to anyone ages 18 and over.


Promoting Tobacco Cessation for Priority Populations

Tobacco cessation is a key component of health promotion for everyone. However, some groups are particularly at risk for tobacco use and related health concerns. This may be because they have lived, worked, and received healthcare services in environments that encouraged tobacco use, or they may have other health conditions associated with increased tobacco use. Many of these at risk populations are underserved and do not receive needed tobacco cessation counseling and medications. The services tailored to these priority populations are vital to address their unique needs. The FRESHSTART Stop Smoking Program provides tailored information designed to meet the needs of priority populations.


What to Expect In a DIMENSIONS class

Our tobacco cessation classes are recurring weekly. Each week participants will be introduced to new skills and tools to aid them in their quit journey. Participants can join anytime and do not need to wait for a new class to begin. Sessions include in-depth discussions, activities, and fact sheets. The following are general topics:

    • Envisioning a Tobacco Free Life
    • A Tobacco Free Plan
    • Mindful Tobacco Free Behaviors
    • Tobacco Free Journey
    • Living Tobacco Free
    • Maintaining a Tobacco Free Life
