Description

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

The City of Houston Tobacco Cessation onsite program is a consecutive 8-week small group class, led by a Cigna Health Coach that focuses on a step-by-step plan for quitting tobacco and transitioning to a tobacco-free lifestyle. Each 30-minute onsite group class is designed to help tobacco users gain control over their behavior, using a variety of evidence-based techniques for individuals to combine into their own plan to overcome tobacco use. The 30-minute onsite group class will also be coupled with a 30-minute one-to-one individual telephonic coaching session to encourage employees to work toward overcoming barriers to quitting. Upon the completion of this program, employees are eligible for the City of Houston’s non-tobacco user discount.

REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS:

  • Please reserve your spot for the “Living Tobacco-free Program” here on Eventbrite. Spaces are LIMITED to 10 employees per class.

  • Please provide a complete mailing address to receive your FREE “Living Tobacco-free Kit” prior to the start of your workshop. It takes an average of 10 – 14 days to receive your kit.

  • A weekly 30-minute telephonic coaching session is required along with the weekly 30-minute onsite class.
