Stephens Pharmacy now offers tobacco cessation classes

Stephens Pharmacy at Citizens Memorial Hospital is launching a program to help people quit smoking and other tobacco use.

Bailey Sherry, Pharm.D., a clinical staff pharmacist, will lead group sessions starting July 30. Sherry is certified to facilitate the American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking® program. This in-person program helps people quit all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and vaping devices.

The sessions will be held in the CMH Community Rooms at LimeBank from 4-6 p.m. for eight meetings over seven weeks. The cost is $60 per participant.

“At the fourth session, everyone quits together. Two days later, everyone meets again for additional support and accountability,” Sherry said. “Quitting in this supportive environment increases the likelihood of success.”

Class dates are July 30, Aug. 6, Aug. 13, Aug. 20, Aug. 22, Aug. 27, Sept. 3 and Sept. 10.

Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. It causes more than 480,000 deaths in the United States each year.
