Ease@Work Wellness Program to offer free nicotine cessation program

As part of the Ease@Work Wellness Program, Case Western Reserve University will sponsor a nicotine cessation series, which will include guided sessions for making a plan to quit and setting a quit date.

The program is open to any individual who has the desire to end his or her nicotine use and will include:

  • an assessment of an individual’s readiness to end nicotine use,
  • the identification of personalized motivations and obstacles,
  • the development of awareness techniques to avoid possible triggers, and
  • a step-by-step program for ending nicotine use through self-discovery and group support, including behavior change, importance of good nutrition, exercise and stress management.

Participants should plan to attend all eight, one-hour sessions that will take place on Wednesdays, Sept. 4 to Oct. 23, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Room 320B. View the entire schedule for details.

The program requires no out-of-pocket cost, but registration is required. Register by Friday, Aug. 30, to Valerie Clause at vclause@easeatwork.com or 216.325.9323.

The series is presented by Ease@Work and is facilitated by Clause, a smoking cessation program facilitator certified by the American Lung Association.
