Worksite Cessation

Tobacco Free Allegheny, in partnership with Pittsburgh Mercy, is available to help you help your employees quit smoking. Many workplaces have programs to help smokers quit through their own wellness initiatives or through their health insurance plan. If your workplace does not offer such a program, a counselor can arrange to come and conduct groups for any of your employees interested in quitting smoking.
