MASON CITY – Tobacco Free North Iowa will be offering Freedom From Smoking clinics starting Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 and running every Tuesday through November. Clinics will be held at 10AM and 5:30PM with locations yet to be determined.
The Freedom From Smoking clinics include eight sessions, and feature a step-by-step plan for quitting smoking. Each session is designed to help smokers gain control over their habit, and work toward an official quit date. Studies have shown that Freedom From Smoking participants are six times more likely to be smoke free one year later than those who quit on their own.
The cost of the clinics is FREE for individuals thanks to Tobacco Free North Iowa. Tobacco Free North Iowa is comprised of: Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health, Prairie Ridge Integrated Behavioral Healthcare, and Mercy Medical Center North Iowa.
