Smoking Cessation
Program Details (Back to Programs)

The Smoking Cessation Program is an investment under the Ontario Smoke-Free Strategy. The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is a key partner to distribute the Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) and coordinate the program.

The Family Health Team encourages and supports a comprehensive smoking cessation program to our patients that includes:

  • Proactively screening and identifying current smokers
  • Advising and assisting current smokers at every patient encounter
  • Offering a tailored treatment course of over the counter Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) in combination with counselling.
  • Following up with participants at key milestones to prevent relapse
  • Linking smokers attempting to quit with other supports through the Smokers’ Helpline
  • Collecting data on the outcome of patient quit status

  • Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) at no cost
  • Coaching support on all aspects of smoking cessation
