Generations Graduates first Rewards to Quit Class

Rewards-to-Quit-Class-Graduation-12-8-14


On December 8, 2014, 6 people graduated from Generations' first Rewards to Quit Smoking Cessation Program. They met once a week for 12 weeks for one hour. The "Learning About Healthy Living" curriculum was followed.

 

Not only did they learn about quitting smoking but they also talked about living a healthier lifestyle. In addition to group session, the participants were also offered nicotine replacement therapies, individual therapy and had access to the Quit line. The participants also received monetary incentive for participating and meeting certain criteria along the way.

In addition, CO Breathalyzer tests were given to each participant weekly. The majority of the participants loved this tool because it helped to motivate them to not smoke to keep their scores down each week and earn incentives for this.

Generations is currently enrolling for upcoming Rewards to Quit groups!
