Tobacco Cessation Program

Let Us Help You Quit Smoking. Join the Cessation Nation.

The Tobacco Cessation Program at Our Lady of Lourdes Heart Hospital is at the heart of helping you quit smoking.

Deciding to quit is one of the best choices you can make. In fact, quitting can add up to eight years to your life and lead to instant health benefits. You will lower your risk of experiencing a heart attack, you will breathe easier and before you know it, your risk of heart disease will decrease.

We know quitting is hard, but you don’t have to do it alone. The Tobacco Cessation Program at Our Lady of Lourdes Heart Hospital is here to offer support to help you blow smoking away.

What is Unique about Our Program?

  • Individualized Support

    You are assigned your own counselor for the duration of the program. Your counselor gets to know you closely so you both can focus energy on moving toward tobacco-free living.

  • Hospital-Based Counseling

    Our Lady of Lourdes Heart Hospital is the first hospital-based counseling program in Acadiana that operates like an outpatient clinic. You will receive individual counseling led by nationally certified Tobacco Treatment Specialists. They provide behavioral management therapy in collaboration with a physician or physician's assistant. Now, that's quite a team!

  • Individualized Plan

    We meet with you one-on-one and develop an individualized plan specific to your needs. We can help you identify your specific triggers, change your thoughts and behaviors linked to smoking, and teach you concrete strategies to improve your chances of quitting and staying smoke free. 

  • Convenient Alternatives

    Telephone sessions are offered if you have transportation issues or are unable to attend onsite sessions.
