Kan. Offers Help To People Wanting To Quit Smoking

KSCB News - January 1, 2011 8:54 am

Just in time for people who are making New Year’s resolution, the Kansas Department of Health Environment is reminding smokers that it offers help if they want to quit.

The state is using the holiday to publicize the Kansas Tobacco Quitline, which hooks smokers up with coaches and links them to online exercises to help them stop smoking.

The line is 1-800-QUIT-NOW.

The program is funded by federal dollars.

The state also has about 500 two-week doses of nicotine gum and patches and will provide them while supplies last to Kansans who pass a brief medical exam and aren’t participating in Medicaid. That program already covers such therapies to help people quit.
