Legislative Seal

SHOREHAM, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker encourages Suffolk County residents struggling with tobacco addiction to enroll in the “Learn to Be …Tobacco Free” program through the Suffolk County Department of Health Services. This program offers support, planning, and counseling for those who are seeking help with breaking their smoking addiction. Classes are FREE for Suffolk County residents with the exception of a nominal fee for medication for those who qualify. A 6-week cessation program will be held the North Shore Public Library (250 Route 25A, Shoreham, NY) starting on Monday, March 26 from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM. The class schedule is as follows: March 26, April 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30, with a reunion on May 21, 2018.

“Cigarettes kill 1,200 Americans every day. More people die each year from smoking than from murder, AIDS, suicide, drugs, car crashes, and alcohol, combined,” said Legislator Anker. “It is so important that those who are struggling with nicotine addiction receive the support they need. The Suffolk County Department of Health Services provides programs such as ‘Learn to Be Tobacco Free’ to help our loved ones and fellow community members break free from nicotine addiction.”

To enroll in the tobacco cessation program at North Shore Public Library in Shoreham please call 631-853-2928. For more information and a complete list of “Learn to Be…Tobacco Free” smoking cessation classes, please visit www.suffolkcountyny.gov/Departments/HealthServices.aspx.
