Quit Smoking Program

Quitting smoking is the single most important thing you can do for your health!

The Quit Smoking Program (QSP) is a nurse-led clinic that provides you with one-on-one support during your attempt to quit. The program provides a non-judgmental and supportive environment where a “quit plan” is tailored to meet your individual needs. Anyone may self-refer to the program, or be referred by a healthcare provider. The cost is covered by OHIP.

 

What to Expect

At your first visit you will meet with the nurse to establish your personal treatment plan, which may include medication. Carbon monoxide readings will be taken so you can see your progress. Follow-up visits are scheduled about once a month for six months. To enable accessibility, phone counsel appointments are available.
 

To Register

To register for the Quit Smoking Program, you can either:

1. Call us at 613-696-7069

You do not need a physician referral. You will be asked to complete and return a baseline questionnaire prior to us booking your first visit.
