TOBACCO PREVENTION & CESSATION

The Health Department provides a multi-faceted approach to Tobacco and Vaping Programming and we offer the following tobacco prevention services to the community:

  • Tobacco prevention education in the schools
  • Tobacco cessation programming and evaluation to the community and local manufacturing facilities
  • Collect, update and maintain data relating to secondhand smoke exposure through varying surveys (community public opinion polls and logging inspected facilities policies on smoking.) 
  • Assistance with policy development relating to tobacco regulations/policies/ordinances.

Smoking Cessation 

On an ongoing basis, BCHD provides Cooper Clayton Smoking Cessation program for those who are interested in quiting.  Through grant funding, we are able to supply Nicotine Replacement Therapy as long as supplies last.  Please call Cyndi Steele at 859-987-1915 for more information.
