Smoking Cessation Program

Whether you are dealing with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), have been diagnosed with lung cancer, suffer from asthma, or just want to improve your overall health, quitting smoking is a great option. However, this doesn’t mean that quitting is easy. The specialists at Temple’s Smoking Cessation Center use both medication and behavioral therapy to help patients reach their goal to quit smoking.

Departments across the Temple University Health System are able to quickly and easily refer patients to Temple’s Smoking Cessation Center. The specialists at the center can also arrange for the appropriate smoking cessation patients to get screened for lung cancer. This helps more patients with the disease get diagnosed early, often improving their outcome.
