Freedom From Smoking
This American Lung Association eight-session stop-smoking program uses a positive behavior-change approach which teaches you how to become a nonsmoker for good. Throughout the program, you will receive special attention in dealing with recovery symptoms, controlling weight, managing stress, and fighting those urges to go back to smoking. Provided at no cost to the community, this program is taught at SGMC’s main campus, Smith Northview campus, Berrien campus, and Lanier campus. - Flyer 2014
