Smoking Cessation

Please note: The SCFHT currently is not accepting new patients for the Smoking Cessation Program.

The Smoking Cessation Program at the Sunset Country Family Health Team is for all patients 18 years of age and older who are rostered to a SCFHT physician. This program provides a systematic approach to assist patients who are interested in quitting smoking. An initial in-office appointment analyzes smoking and quitting history, smoking cessation medication options, and quit plans are developed. Follow-up supportive care counselling is provided by phone.

The SCFHT participates in the STOP with FHTs Smoking Cessation Program. With funding from the ministry of Health Promotion, Family Health Teams across Ontario have the opportunity to offer free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) to smokers who wish to quit.

CAMH STOP on the Net

STOP on the Net is an online research program designed to support individuals 18 years of age and older​ in an attempt to quit smoking. Join today from the comfort of your home and receive free nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) patches and gum/lozenges mailed to your address. 

If you are interested in the program, visit their website to complete an enrollment survey to see if you are eligible to participate. To go to their website, click HERE.

Research has shown that the use of NRTs and counselling can double or triple the chances of successfully quitting.

Quitting smoking is the single most important step smokers can take to improve their health.
