Registration open for CCBC smoking cessation programs


Clean air, clean campus.

The CCBC Wellness Center is partnering with the Baltimore County Department of Health, Bureau of Behavioral Health to offer a free, 7-week smoking cessation Program. This program is open to faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members who are 18 years and older.

The program is designed to help participants quit using tobacco products; encourage participants to take the first step toward a healthier life style; and promote healthier living among the college community.

If necessary, participants will be given free aids, (e.g., nicotine patch or gum, Chantix® and stress relievers such as CDs and stress balls) to assist them in quitting their nicotine habit.

The program must have a minimum of six (6) participants and a maximum of 12 for the program to run. Register now for the program on your campus.
