Smoking Cessation



Ready to quit smoking?
SGMC provides the American Lung Association's Freedom From Smoking program at no cost to participants. Call 229.433.1074 now to reserve your spot in an upcoming session.

Freedom From Smoking is eight sessions and uses a positive behavior-change approach to help participants quit and become a nonsmoker for good. Participants learn how to deal with recovery symptoms, control weight, manage stress, and fight those urges to go back to smoking. Sessions are offered at SGMC's main campus in Valdosta, SGMC Berrien Campus in Nashville, and SGMC Lanier Campus in Lakeland.

Smoking is the number one cause of preventable death and disease in the United States. Don't be a statistic. Quitting can cut your risk for diseases caused by smoking in half.

Call 229.433.1074 to register for an upcoming session. A certificate of completion is awarded to those who complete the entire 8-week course.
