Healthy Acadia is thrilled to be partnering with Cancer Support Center of Maine to offer an eight-week tobacco cessation group course in Ellsworth this fall. The classes will provide evidence-based tools and resources in a supportive, fun environment to help participants quit tobacco and stay tobacco-free. The eight-week course is free and open to the public; registration is required. Classes will meet on Mondays from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, from September 12 through October 31, 2016, at Healthy Acadia’s Ellsworth office: 140 State Street, Suite 1.
Cancer Support Center of Maine’s Barbara Vittum will lead the eight weekly sessions. Vittum has recently provided similar tobacco cessation group classes in Washington County, which proved highly popular and successful for participants. Class participants will gain new tools for quitting through a “no blame, no shame” approach. Over the course of eight weeks, they will learn about the science behind tobacco addiction, build confidence in their ability to be tobacco free; enjoy the company of community members in a relaxed setting, and more!
