IDPH doubles nicotine replacement therapy offer
Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) is announcing an expansion of the free nicotine replacement program launched earlier this year for Iowans who enroll in Quitline Iowa.
Beginning Oct. 23, any participant who enrolls in the no-cost program could be eligible for twice as much nicotine replacement therapy — eight weeks instead of four weeks.
“We believe this change offers Iowans who need help quitting smoking or using smokeless tobacco a greater incentive to enroll in Quitline Iowa,” said IDPH Director, Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks. “The longer an individual has access to NRT, the more likely they are to stay tobacco free. It’s hoped that by expanding access to nicotine replacement patches, lozenges or gum, those struggling with withdrawal symptoms will be more likely to succeed in quitting for good.”
