Ochsner’s comprehensive smoking cessation program provides a risk-free way to quit smoking. With FREE counseling and medications*, you have everything you need to start living a healthier life.



You don’t have to stop smoking before your first visit. You will meet one-on-one with a smoking cessation counselor to discuss your options and individual treatment plan. A certified tobacco treatment specialist will work with you to determine the best way to quit and select a quit date. Your medical history and medications can be tracked in MyOchsner, our online patient portal.

The Smoking Cessation Clinics include:

  • FREE office visits
  • FREE group and individual counseling sessions
  • FREE over-the-counter and prescription medications*


Smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease in the United States with 400,000 lives lost and more than $3 billion in health care cost and productivity losses in Louisiana alone.
