Health department accepting clients for tobacco community cessation initiative

• May 26, 2018 at 10:00 PM

Huron County Public Health (HCPH) has begun accepting clients for its community cessation initiative (CCI).

This program is designed to connect individuals who wish to quit smoking or using other tobacco products with local cessation services. HCPH encourages community members who are ready to quit using tobacco to call 419-668-1652 ext. 269.

Through the CCI program, cessation services are billed through participants’ private health insurance and/or Medicaid. If cessation services aren’t covered or the participant is uninsured, the program will cover the cost of the counseling services, at no expense to the participant.

Participants also will benefit from a unique feature of the program, relapse management. The HCPH CCI coordinator will follow up with each participating client to help them stay tobacco-free, encourage additional quit attempts and conveniently connect them with additional cessation services, if needed.

CCI is made possible through the Ohio Department of Health Bureau of Health Promotion grant funding, awarded to serve Huron, Erie, and Sandusky Counties. For more information about the program call 419-668-1652 ext. 269 or visit www.huroncohealth.com.
