Nicotine Cessation and Prevention Program

The Nicotine Cessation and Prevention Program provides efforts towards reducing the impact of tobacco and vaping products on the residents of Wayne County. Current research on the impact of Nicotine use continues to prove how dangerous any form of tobacco or vape product can be on your health, and our Health Educator offers regular educational opportunities direct to the public through health fairs, speaking engagements, and education in school classrooms about why Nicotine in any form should be avoided or eliminated from your habits.

Vaping products continue to be a growing concern among the youth and within schools in Wayne County. Our Health Educator is a certified N-O-T (Not On Tobacco) facilitator, which is a program aimed at helping students quit forms of Nicotine, including vaping products. Ongoing efforts also include collaboration with local school districts and their educators to provide updates on research regarding vaping products and their effect on health.

All of the Nicotine Cessation Programs are entirely free, and do not require any form of insurance.
