Tobacco Cessation

stop smokingLāna‘i Community Health Center understands that quitting is DIFFICULT! Less than 5% of smokers are able to quit successfully on their own, and on average, it takes at least 7 to 8 quit attempts, before someone is able to live smoke-free.

Our program is designed to help you be successful and to quit smoking for good!
