Behavioral Medicine Programs
The health professionals at Kirby Medical Group understand that quitting can be very difficult. We recognize the tremendous effort it takes to drop the habit, and want you to know that we are here to help with your smoking cessation efforts.
We work in conjunction with the American Academy of Family Practice’s Ask & Act Program, the Illinois Department of Public Health Quitline and the American Lung Association to offer our patients educational materials and counseling support to get them through the cessation process and on track to a healthy life!
Kirby Medical Group will not only help you quit smoking, but will also provide support and healthcare during the withdrawal process. Cigarettes contain thousands of chemicals, including nicotine, a potent and very addictive drug. Smokers become physically addicted to nicotine and may develop withdrawal symptoms when trying to quit. We will be there to help you through the withdrawal process, offering support and medical care.
