Freedom From Smoking Program at CMC

RWJBarnabas Health partnered with the American Lung Association to provide training for employees to become certified Freedom From Smoking Facilitators. The Freedom From Smoking Program is an eight-week quit smoking program. Hundreds of thousands of people have become smoke free through a Freedom From Smoking Group Clinic which offers a structured, systematic approach to quit smoking.

In March 2017, Keri Britske, MBA, Community Outreach Director, became a certified facilitator through the American Lung Association to conduct clinics at Community Medical Center. Beginning in 2017, multiple clinics have been held. Individuals who have attended and completed the program have been successful at quitting or have drastically reduced the amount they smoked.

The value of the program is to promote a smoke-free, healthy lifestyle providing participants with proven methods to create a quit short-term and long-term plan to remain smoke-free. Participants will learn how to know if they are ready to quit; medications that can increase the success of quitting, lifestyle changes, and coping strategies. The Freedom From Smoking Program will be held throughout the year.

If you have any questions about the Freedom From Smoking program, please call Keri Britske, MBA, Community Outreach Manager at (O) 732-557-3273; (C) 732-228-2768 or email: keri.britske@rwjbh.org
