Trained quit specialists match cessation advice to the patient's stage of readiness to quit.
Callers can access counselling services, self-help materials, advice, support and referral to evidence-based Island cessation support services such as Quit Care group counselling, available at the five Addictions Services sites (Souris, Montague, Charlottetown area, Summerside, and Alberton).
Referrals may be reactive (patient calls in) or proactive (fax referral program). Telephone counselling can enhance the effectiveness of self-help materials.
The free online counselling is an interactive, web-based service available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week offering tips, tools, and support to help with quitting smoking or other tobacco use.
