We understand the challenges of tobacco addiction, and that’s why we offer a range of tobacco-cessation resources designed to help you work toward a tobacco-free life.

Products include generic Chantix (varenicline), nicotine chewing gum and nicotine patches. We encourage you to review your health insurance benefits and include your primary care physician as you prepare to utilize tobacco-cessation resources.
