Tobacco-Use Cessation Program

The Jackson County Health Department wants to prevent, promote and protect Jackson County residents against public health issues and assist our county in becoming a healthier place to live.

The Health Department is partnering with Schneck Medical Center to offer a six-week tobacco education/cessation program for anyone 18 years of age or older who wishes to stop using tobacco products including cigarettes, cigars and chew. Classes are held in the Schneck Medical Center facility and classes are led by certified instructors using the Fresh Start (American Cancer Society) curriculum. Four weeks of nicotine replacement patches are available at no cost for those requesting this service.

How to get signed up: Call our Public Health Coordinator at 522-6474 or email limontgomery@localhealth.in.gov. She'll talk to you about our program, which includes a 6 eek group education/cessation class that includes 4 weeks of free nicotine replacement patches.
