West Florida AHEC offers a relapse program to those who have reverted and want to quit again or have quit and would like additional support to remain tobacco free. This is a review program that covers the most important coping mechanisms to deal with triggers and cravings. Participants may be asked to join an existing Quit Smoking Now class, attend a Tools to Quit course as a review or join a relapse class—if there is a sufficient number of individual requests.
The Relapse Prevention Program is instructed by a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist and Nicotine Replacement Therapy may or may not be provided; depending on the needs of participants. The instructor is available for follow up and support.
