Smoking Cessation Program
The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Northwestern University offers a comprehensive Smoking Cessation Program. Carol Southard, an American Lung Association certified instructor with over 20 years experience and proven success, facilitates the program.
Northwestern's Smoking Cessation Program provides eight weekly group sessions. It includes a comprehensive support group combined with individualized interventions. The foundation of the program is a strong focus on stopping smoking using a behavioral approach. Information about nicotine replacement therapy, bupropion (Zyban) and varenicline (Chantix) is also part of the program. Prescriptions and referrals are provided when appropriate.
