Let Virtua Help You Kick the Smoking Habit

If you're having trouble quitting smoking, Virtua Health’s individual counseling sessions at Virtua Surgical Group in Marlton, NJ, will help you kick the smoking habit for good.

Updated October 20, 2021

Are you having a hard time quitting smoking? Virtua Health’s individual counseling sessions will help you kick the smoking habit once and for all.
Working with a trained tobacco treatment specialist, you will:

  • Learn about the addiction process
  • Develop a personal plan to quit smoking
  • Get the resources and tools you need to stop smoking, including access to prescription medication and nicotine replacement 
  • Learn how to manage stress and avoid other behavioral triggers
  • Benefit from close monitoring during your journey--if something feels off or you’re having a hard time sticking with the program, we can work together to figure out the best solution
  • Find out if you’re eligible for a high-risk lung cancer screening

Your first session will last about 45 minutes. This allows the time for us to get into a deeper conversation about your smoking addiction and develop a treatment strategy that works for you. All sessions after that will be about 15 to 30 minutes. Typically, you’ll have two sessions the first month, five monthly sessions, and then a final one at the 12-month mark.

Most insurance plans cover eight visits throughout the year with no out-of-pocket costs. 

Individual smoking cessation counseling is available at Virtua Surgical Group in Marlton, NJ on Wednesdays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To make an appointment, call 856-355-7176.

Virtua also offers educational support groups run by trained tobacco cessation specialists. These sessions are free, but registration is required.
