New Quitline Services
Beginning in January, the Quit Now Indiana is offering even more tools to help Hoosiers quit tobacco. The Indiana Tobacco Quitline (1-800-QUIT NOW) is now available to youth tobacco users. The evidence-based telephone counseling program designed to help youths ages 13 to 17 quit using tobacco permanently. Youth Quit Coaches receive comprehensive training in the use of motivational interviewing, brief solution-focused therapy techniques, and cognitive behavioral approaches to treating tobacco addiction.
Tobacco users can now enroll directly in a web-based program at www.equitnow.com. Web Coach is a fully featured web application. It is designed to guide smokers and smokeless tobacco users through an evidence-based process of quitting tobacco with Quit Coach® support.
Also, tobacco users enrolled in the telephone counseling services or the Web Coach option may opt to enroll in the Text2QuitSM program as well for additional support. Text2QuitSM is an evidence-based series of text messages personalized to a participant's Quitting Plan. Tailored messages are sent out before and after a participant's quit date to help prepare them for quitting and prevent relapse after they have quit.
In summary, call 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669) or visit www.equitnow.com to start your journey to freedom from tobacco!
