Michigan Residents Can Get Free Nicotine Patches, Gum or Lozenges
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is helping Michigan residents quit nicotine by offering free nicotine patches, gum and lozenges.
The help is being offered through the Michigan Tobacco Quitline.
Tobacco users who would like to quit may call the Quitline at 800-QUIT-NOW. Enrollees will receive a free, two-week supply of nicotine gum, patches or lozenges. Enrollees will also get a coach who will assist them in setting a quit date, choosing a nicotine replacement product that is right for them and making an individualized quit plan. The coach will provide support with up to four telephone coaching sessions scheduled around the caller's quit date.
The Quitline serves all ages, but those who want nicotine replacement therapy must be over 18 and meet basic health requirements.
The offer of two free weeks of nicotine gum, patches or lozenges is available through May 31.
