Smoking/Vaping Cessation Program

What is smoking/vaping cessation?

Smoking/vaping cessation is the process of attempting to quit smoking/vaping. Quitting smoking/vaping can be difficult, but there is support available to help you on your journey to success.

Where is smoking/vaping cessation support offered?

In Horizon Health Network, smoking/vaping cessation support is available when accessing health care in many of our facilities. Examples include:

  • Hospitals
  • Community health centres
  • Outpatient centres/clinics

When accessing care, you will be asked about your tobacco/vaping use and offered support using a non-judgmental approach.

What does this support include?

Smoking/vaping cessation support includes:

  • A conversation with a health care provider about your smoking/vaping history
  • A discussion that includes reviewing strategies and medications that can help you be successful in your quit attempt
  • Developing a plan for quitting smoking/vaping and remaining smoke/vape free

This service is available when accessing care in our hospitals, many of our community health centres and many of our specialty clinics.
