Free Chantix prescription available with Quit Tobacco Program
February 12, 2016
The Wyoming Department of Health is adding a free three-month prescription to Chantix to Wyoming smokers who want to quit smoking with the help of the Wyoming Quit Tobacco Program. Chantix is a medication used to help people quit smoking. Other options include free nicotine replacement gum, patches or lozenges. The program has helped people cover Chantix costs for several years, but is now offering a free three-month prescription to people who enroll in the program by June 30. People who want to quit smoking have a higher chance for success if their plan includes tools such as medication or nicotine replacement gum or patches, combined with coaching or similar support.
Interested residents may call 1-800-QUIT NOW or visit www.quitwyo.org online for more information or to enroll. In addition to free nicotine replacement therapy and Chantix, phone or online support is available at no cost to Wyoming residents.
