The MyQuit program is designed to support anyone interested in quitting smoking or cutting back their tobacco use. The program is free of charge and is delivered by coaches who are trained in the latest techniques to help people successfully stop smoking.
MyQuit offers a few different types of coaching: one on one at a clinic or by telephone, group coaching and an online program.
Services are offered in locations across the Champlain region from 7 am – 9 pm. Many clients will choose to use one of the available quit smoking medications and may be eligible to access these medications at a reduced cost (e.g. nicotine replacement therapy).
The MyQuit program is the result of a partnership between eight local health care partners including the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, the Champlain Regional Cancer Program, Ottawa Public Health, Eastern Ontario Health Unit, Renfrew County and District Health Unit, Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit, Smokers’ Helpline and Mackay Manor Renfrew County Addiction Treatment.
