Local Classes

  • Allegan General Hospital-Freedom From Smoking® provides a supportive group environment and teaches a step-by-step method for changing behavior and quitting smoking for long-term freedom. No two smokers are alike, so the program begins by finding out how ready an individual is to quit smoking. The people, places and things that trigger the smoking will be evaluated and a quitting plan will be developed to fit their specific needs. The eight-session program covers topics such as preparation for quitting, identifying triggers, coping with social situations, weight management and nicotine replacement therapy. The meetings will be held from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. The cost of the program is $20. Seating is limited and pre-registration is required. Please call AGH’s Community Events Line at (269) 686-4231 to register. Freedom From Smoking® is funded by the AGH Foundation through the Alice C. Webb Wellness Fund.
