Quitting smoking isn't easy.
But you can do it, and we can help.

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and disease. That's why Northwell Health provides state-of-the-art tobacco prevention education, cessation services and clinical research in the area of nicotine dependence. We have helped thousands of people quit smoking, and we have one of the highest success rates in the United States. We work collaboratively with hospitals, clinics and physicians to ensure that patients are screened for tobacco use and provided assistance with quitting.
