The Rush Approach to Smoking Cessation

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance. Most people who smoke, vape or use smokeless tobacco need to try a few different approaches to quitting before they find the one that works. Rush offers you several options — and we'll stick with you until you quit.

Rush’s certified tobacco treatment specialist can provide you with a personalized quit plan and support for coping with challenges like cravings, stress, and negative mood. We can work with your primary care doctor to recommend nicotine replacement products or prescription medications to manage nicotine withdrawal symptoms, and can also refer you to free, evidence-based programs that are convenient no matter what your schedule.
