Floyd smoking cessation classes PDF Print E-mail

On Tuesday, September 29, 2015, the Floyd Memorial Cancer Center of Indiana began offering free 13-week Cooper/Clayton Method smoking cessation classes taught by trained tobacco cessation professionals.


The Cooper/Clayton Method is a safe and effective comprehensive behavioral program to help people stay smoke-free for the rest of their lives. It was started over 25 years ago by two faculty members at the University of Kentucky; Thomas Cooper, DDS, a dentist and former heavy smoker, and Richard Clayton, PhD, an expert on drug addiction.

This highly successful program is science-based, utilizing proven methods including education, skills training and social support. Participants in the Cooper/Clayton Method to Stop Smoking utilize nicotine replacement products such as nicotine gum, nicotine lozenges or the nicotine patch.  If financial assistance is needed to purchase nicotine replacements, class instructors can help connect participants with available resources.

Class sizes are limited and pre-registration is required.  Call 1-800-4-SOURCE (1-800-476-8723) to reserve your spot.
