At Lung Health Institute, we want to help as many patients as possible make changes to their daily lives to support their lung health.
We understand that tobacco and nicotine are major contributors to chronic lung disease. We also understand it’s very difficult to quit smoking, and it can be even harder to do by yourself. That’s why we’re offering additional support to our patients who want to quit smoking.
A New Option to Support Our Patients
Lung Health Institute is pleased to offer The American Lung Association’s Freedom From Smoking® Plus smoking cessation program at no additional cost to our patients who choose Cellular Therapy.
How Does the Program Work?
Freedom From Smoking® Plus is a flexible online program that can be completed in 6 weeks. The program focuses on strategies, support and a platform to share experiences for people quitting nicotine. The first 3 weeks of the program build up to a planned quit day, and the next 3 weeks focus on staying smoke-free.
Who Is Eligible?
We are excited to provide this program to patients who select our Cellular Therapy plan and need help with smoking cessation. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and other chronic lung diseases are not always related to smoking. However, many people who have lung diseases do currently smoke. For those who haven’t stopped yet, quitting smoking is an important step in slowing the progression of chronic lung conditions.
Maximizing Your Results
Adding Freedom From Smoking® Plus to our Cellular Therapy allows for a comprehensive treatment plan for our patients who smoke. Cellular Therapy was created to give patients the best possible results and compound the benefits of cellular therapy. Patients who select this treatment option visit Lung Health Institute for cellular therapy and return to our clinic about 90 days later for their second treatment.
If you are interested in cellular therapy for your chronic lung condition and are currently smoke, please contact a patient coordinator for more information about Freedom From Smoking®.
