Quitting Aids Available to Students, Faculty, & Staff
University Health Services offers over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapies (NRT), including patches, gum and lozenges. NRT products are available at no cost to students. Faculty and staff can purchase these products at University Health Services at a discounted cost.
Remember, NRT help with the physical withdrawal from nicotine and should be used in combination with a cessation program to address both the physical and mental parts of addiction. This approach - using NRT with a cessation program - has been shown to double a person's chances of quitting!
Other forms of NRT (nasal spray and inhalers), as well as non-nicotine medications, are also available to help with quitting. These treatments are available by prescription.
