Mercy Hospital St. Louis offers two programs to help you break the smoking or tobacco chewing habit: Mercy Road to Freedom and Auriculotherapy. You can put years back onto your life and prevent health complications, but smokers could save nearly $2,000 a year by kicking the habit. Explore these options to help improve your health by quitting tobacco use.
The Mercy Road to Freedom smoking cessation program at Mercy Hospital St. Louis offers low-cost, one-on-one sessions via telephone with a Mercy registered nurse certified through Mayo Clinic as a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist (CTTS) and a Certified Well Coach. You will have individual communications with your CTTS, who will help you through the process and achieve success. All appointments are confidential and conducted on the phone, from the comfort of your home, or wherever life takes you.
Cost is $10.00 for the initial consultation and $15.00 for three follow-up coaching calls, for approximately $55 total investment. Enroll online or email [email protected] for more information.
Once you register, your CTTS will contact you by telephone to set up your initial 45-minute coaching consultation to develop a personal tobacco cessation plan. In the subsequent 15-20 minute telephone coaching sessions, you and your coach will review the progress towards your vision and goals, discuss any issues or concerns, and agree upon a set of goals for the next week.
Mercy Hospital St. Louis also offers auriculotherapy treatment as an option for smoking cessation. Auriculotherapy is a therapeutic intervention using electrical stimulation of specific points on the ear to treat nicotine addiction. It targets the addictive centers of the brain and helps patients get over the cravings and withdrawal symptoms that often are the reason they go back to smoking with other methods.
Auriculotherapy services are located at the following locations in St. Louis. Call 636-256-5200 to learn more about Auriculotherapy services for smoking cessation.
