Local Tobacco Cessation Services

Local tobacco cessation services are available through various mechanisms in Union County, Ohio.

  1. If you are pregnant and a Union County resident, the Union County Health Department can help you quit smoking. Services include visits with a Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist at least once a trimester and once after the baby is born. We offer carbon monoxide testing to help you reach your goal. Our cessation services are available to both parents. For more information, please contact Susie Knox at susie.knox@uchd.net  or 937-642-2053. 
  2. If you are employed with health benefits, you are encouraged to seek cessation services through your employer (Affordable Care Act mandates cessation services be offered and covered through insurance.).
  3. If you are uninsured, please contact the Ohio Quitline at 1-800-QUIT NOW.
  4. Memorial Hospital (Marysville, Oh) provides community cessation group classes at least three times per year for a minimal fee. Please contact Rebecca Wilder at rebecca.wilder@memorialohio.com or via phone at 937-578-2755.
