Free help is available for Potter County residents trying to kick their smoking habit. A proven program provided by the American Lung Association (ALA) is offered locally by the Northcentral Pa. Area Health Education Center. For more information or to register, call (570) 724-9145.

ALA has been helping people quit smoking for more than 35 years through its Freedom From Smoking program, available in a variety of formats. “Freedom From Smoking Plus” is a user-friendly interface that helps the user create a personal quit-smoking plan on a desktop, tablet or smartphone. Counselors and other program participants are available through an online community. For details, visit the website freedomfromsmoking.org.

Group clinics are also offered, as are telephone counseling and a self-help guide, both available by calling 1-800-586-4872.
