“Stopping smoking is the easiest thing in the world – I’ve done it a hundred times.”
If this Mark Twain quote describes you, you are not alone.
Northern Health’s Nicotine Intervention Counselling Centre (NICC) Program has trained professionals who can help you reach your goal of a smoke free life.
As a client of NICC, you will receive:
- Individual Consultation: An assessment of your situation, help to understand and change behaviours that support tobacco dependence and development of a personal quitting plan.
- Nicotine Replacement Therapy: Access to a starter kit of nicotine replacement medications to help ease the way to a tobacco free life.
- Relapse Prevention: Regular follow-up support for a year to offer encouragement and advice.
The NICC Program is FREE and available in over 20 communities throughout Northern Health. For more information about NICC or to book an appointment, please contact your local health unit, or call (250) 565-7344 (for toll-free, call 1-800-663-7867 and ask to be transferred to (250) 565-7344).
The NICC program is built on and committed to best practices and maintaining the standards set out in the US Public Health Service Guidelines.
