Tobacco Cessation

The Dayton VA Medical Center's Veterans Health Education Program has many education activities and services. The Tobacco Cessation Program is one of them.

The Tobacco Cessation Program helps Veterans and staff who want to quit tobacco for good. Success at quitting tobacco depends on 1) mastering the nicotine addiction and 2) changing tobacco use behaviors. Classes provide health coaching to address both of these aspects of tobacco addiction. You are three times more likely to quit tobacco if you receive both medicine and counseling.

Veterans can talk with their Primary Care providers anytime about medicine to help them quit. The medicines available at the Dayton VA Medical Center are:

  • Nicotine replacement (patches, gum & lozenges)
  • Bupropion
  • Varenicline

You may need more than one medicine to be successful at quitting. And you may need to quit more than once before you succeed. We will help you quit for good!

Staff members should attend a tobacco cessation class before asking Employee Health for nicotine replacement to help them quit.

Class and support group meetings are offered every Monday (except Federal Holidays). You do not need an appointment. There is no charge for the class. Family and friends may come to the classes too. Individual counseling is provided when needed.
