The Dowell Health Center is currently not offering individual smoking cessation counseling or smoking cessation products such as nicotine replacement therapy and Chantix. If you are interested in quitting smoking you may attend one of the cessation classes offered in the surrounding community as listed below. Please check back for changes in this service as we hope to offer the free smoking cessation classes and products again in the coming months.
