TOBACCO CESSATION PROGRAM
For over 50 years, the Surgeon Generals of the United States have told us about the dangers of smoking and using tobacco. If you smoke and use tobacco it harms almost every organ in your body and significantly increases the risk of death. Every year almost half a million Americans die as a result of smoking and their exposure to second hand smoke. It is the single most preventable cause of death in this country.
Are you ready to quit? The USNH Okinawa Health Promotion & Wellness department offers a robust Tobacco Cessation Program with multiple approaches to quitting. You can make an appointment with one of our certified tobacco cessation specialist or you could simply just walk up to the pharmacy window #5 where you will speak one on one with a Pharmacist and receive the medications you need to get you started. Either way we will be glad to take care of you every step of the way.
