About Fresh Start
Fresh Start incorporates the most current guidelines for tobacco cessation support into three instructor-led group support sessions. The class follows the American Cancer Society program for tobacco cessation. The evidence-based approach is geared to help participants increase their motivation to quit, learn effective approaches for quitting and guide them in making a successful quit attempt.

The components of Fresh Start include motivational intervention activities, practical counseling/problem solving skills and social support. The sessions address a variety of reasons why people smoke, and give participants the tools they need to overcome obstacles and quit forever.

Make 2013 the year you quit smoking! This could be the most important resolution you ever make.
