Tobacco Cessation Clinic

The tobacco cessation clinic at the Institute provides a specialized service of assistance through evidence-based behavioral intervention to those who are habituated or addicted to smoking, smokeless tobacco, and both forms of tobacco. Our tobacco cessation services involve follow-ups to examine the changes in the quit behavior which not only help the tobacco users to quit or reduce their addictions effectively and also maintain long-term and even permanent abstinence. Our counseling sessions also aim to increase the confidence and commitment to staying tobacco-free homes and community.
