Freedom From Smoking (FFS) Clinics provide a group setting for adults to work through the quitting process. There are eight group sessions led by an expert who understands how hard it is for smokers to quit. This may sound like a lot of time. But research has proven that the more time a smoker spends in a supportive situation, the more likely he or she is to succeed. People who use the program are six times more likely to be smoke-free one year later than those who quit on their own.

Clinics are often conducted in a community setting, but can also be offered at your worksite. Freedom From Smoking® has been the choice of employers, hospitals and health plans for over 25 years!
