The Nicotine Dependence Clinic (NDC) offers several specialized outpatient treatments for anyone who wants to quit or reduce their tobacco use. We offer assessment, medical consultation, group counselling and medications to quit/reduce smoking. Our clinic provides service to clients with concurrent substance use and/or mental illness as well other medical conditions.
- A psycho-education session on how to develop a quit plan
- Weekly structured and open ongoing support groups
- Workshops on various topics such as nutrition, physical activity and other topics promoting overall health
- Consultation with a physician, nurse and/or pharmacist specializing in tobacco cessation.
Clients can call the Nicotine Dependence Clinic to register for our “Getting Started” workshop which provides introductory information and strategies for quitting or reducing tobacco use. Clients can meet with a therapist to complete an assessment and develop a treatment plan which may include group counselling, additional workshops and/or smoking cessation medications.
