GLENS FALLS — Adirondack Health Institute’s (AHI) Clear the Air in the Southern Adirondacks (CASA) program has endorsed a nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) initiative coordinated by the NYS Smokers’ Quitline. Up to three months of free nicotine gum have been made available through the Quitline, while supplies last, for those seeking help quitting smoking or vaping. Smokers and vapers can apply by calling 1-866-NY-QUITS (1-866-697-8487) or visiting www.nysmokefree.com.

“We strongly encourage all those who hear about this offer to spread the word to family and friends who smoke or vape,” said Kelly Owens, Manager, Clear the Air in the Southern Adirondacks, Adirondack Health Institute.

In addition to the free nicotine gum, the Clear the Air in the Southern Adirondacks team shares that the NYS Smokers’ Quitline has Quit Coaches available seven days per week beginning at 9:00 a.m. “The Quitline’s Quit Coaches work with all types of traditional tobacco and vape product users by developing personalized quit plans to navigate the behavioral and psychological aspects of nicotine dependence,” explained Owens. “Health care professionals can also connect to the Quitline’s Patient Referral Program by visiting nysmokefree.com/HealthcareProviders/ReferralPrograms as a supplement to visits and follow-ups with their nicotine-dependent patients.”
