Tobacco Cessation and Referral
The Arizona Smokers’ Helpline (ASHLine) is a free on-line, telephonic smoking cessation program that can help you quit any kind of tobacco you may be using: cigarettes, chew, dip, and more. Cigna Medical Group endorses and promotes the use of the ASHLine because it is like personal training for quitting tobacco. A Quit Coach helps and encourages you through every stage of quitting. Using the ASHLine doubles tobacco-users chances of quitting for good. ASHLine offers:
- A 24/7 quit smoking helpline
- Free Tobacco Cessation Coaching
- On-Line Assistance (Phone, Email, or Text)
- Free Medication (for select medications and/or select insurers)
- Resources to help people quit
If you quit tobacco today, you may start seeing health improvements and other benefits almost immediately. If you’re not ready to quit, consider cutting back your tobacco use – even if it is just for today. If you are interested in quitting, make an appointment with your doctor today so you can develop a plan of action and ask for a referral to the ASHLine. Or you may simply call the ASHLine at 1.800.556.6222.
