Looking to Quit Smoking? Smoking Cessation Services

The RVH Smoking Cessation program is based on the Ottawa Model for Smoking Cessation that is centred on the ten best practices for tobacco cessation.

Our goal is to keep you comfortable and out of withdrawal while you are in the health centre, and offer you support to quit if you desire.
