Ash Kickers Smoking Cessation Program
Ash Kickers is a six-session smoking cessation program based on the trans-theoretical model of behavior modification. The program helps smokers travel through the various stages of quitting, which include thinking about quitting, preparing to quit, finally quitting, and preventing relapse. The program also incorporates tobacco education, group support and tools for maintenance as part of a comprehensive effort to help smokers kick the habit.
The class is lead by trained facilitators who conduct the program and are available for support at anytime. Facilitators cover topics such as dealing with stress, what to do in tempting situations and nutritional education. They work to help each person achieve the ultimate goal of quitting and staying quit.
