The Freedom From Smoking® corporate telephonic program is a one-on-one professional telephone counseling program for employers through the Lung HelpLine. The program provides participants barrier-free access to tobacco cessation services through ease of accessibility to educational resources, counseling and support.
About the Program
The program, based on Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence, Clinical Practice Guidelines and the latest research findings, offers the benefit of evidence-based interventions and customized information for participants who are motivated to quit smoking.
The program offers up to eight proactive coaching sessions, unlimited inbound calls and a customized quit plan along with completion certificate and monthly utilization reporting. Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), such as patches, gum or lozenges, are also available at a reduced fee (billable to the agency, not individuals).
