Why worry about tobacco cessation? Smoking costs employees their health and their wages, not to mention how it cuts into their on-the-job productivity.
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, cigarette smoking costs more than $96 billion in health care expenditures and $97 billion in lost productivity annually.1
AllOne Health's tobacco cessation program includes a workbook with tips on how to quit and how to handle urges to smoke and access to a health coach that your employees can call to discuss a quit date, get motivated, and talk through the challenges they are facing in their smoking cessation efforts. All of our tobacco cessation health coaches are trained by a Master-level certified Tobacco Cessation Specialist.
We offer recommendations on how to promote the program in the workplace and we provide promotional materials such as posters, flyers and paycheck stuffers that are customized with your company’s logo.
Want to do even more? We can help you create an incentive program that has been proven to encourage more tobacco users to sign up and stick with it.
AllOne checks in with participants throughout the program. After a participant enrolls, one of our tobacco cessation health coaches has a friendly conversation around topics such as smoking history, how to avoid potential triggers, and how to change habits that are part of their smoking lives.
Our program is highly effective, with a 12 month quit rate of greater than 45% --considerably higher than the quit rate of other smoking cessation programs.2
